Need More Documents after passing interview

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

I am asking this for a family member that recently passed the interview, but needed to provide more documents for citizenship.

They needed him to submit a court order granting sole custody of one of his child, but the child lives with his first ex wife that currently lives in China. They don't have any court order in China and he doesn't pay any financial support either. So how would he respond in this case? Does he write a letter explaining it? or just send back the other two things they requested and see what happens?

Thank you so much!

I would send what is asked for, and a short explanation letter stating that there is no court order. Bonus if he can provide some documentation, such as a letter from the Chinese embassy agreeing that court orders foir child support/ custody are not common in China, or a letter from the ex.

USCIS evaluates dependent support under "good moral character" criteria and they take it very very seriously.

I would not recommend writing up a letter by yourself saying "there is no court order in China", have a Chinese government agency write that up for you and then have it translated by a sworn translator. Same way if the ex-spouse writes up a letter that she does not get/need financial support from him, have it "notarized".

Here is a recent example where the N400 was denied due to child support issues: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/568429-n-400-october-2015-filers/?p=8162336

thank you guys for the responses!

During the interview he said something like he paid some support before, but not anymore due to his current financial status. And his mom who is well off currently pays for the kid. So in this situation, can he write up a notarized letter stating that?

Or does his ex-spouse needs to write one up to get it notarized?

Thanks again

His ex-spouse's statement would be more appropriate. She could write up a letter saying she has been receiving dependent support from his mother on his behalf since mm/yyyy for an amount of xxx$/month and have it notarized. If they kept deposit receipts, it would be best to include of a few copies of those that spans to a few years back as well.
