Hi everyone!

So after my RFE, I decided to spring for an official translation of my birth certificate.


There are parts that they translated which my mom had not done such as the signatures and all the small text at the bottom like the seals .. since it is quite hard to read/ translate, they wrote:



Head of the Vital Records Office (illegible signature)

Round Seal: Department of Vital Records of Dzerhinsky Direct, city of Moscow, partially illegible)


Rectangular seal: foreign Passport issued, illegible text, 04/02, 2001, signature- illegible signature)


and so on a few more times..

is this going to be a problem? I sent them decent photocopies,  I just don't think that kind of text is really translatable but all the info pertaining to me is legible and clearly laid out. 



Thanks :)

I feel like I'm going mental with all this stress of this process. Anyway, I'm aware that some Canadians have been able to visit thier fiance and not activate thier visa. However I also saw that there might be an option of having the approved visa not placed in my passport until around the time I am planning to move there. Basically I want to know what I can do to still be able to visit my fiance between May and October. Anyone have any suggestions than the obvious of me just sucking it up and not seeing him for 5 months?

Looking for some advice.   Sent in I-751 for ROC, and received an RFE.  The initial information I sent in was:




  • Copies of the passport and green card 
  • Three sworn affidavits by U.S. citizen friends, attesting to our relationship and marriage.
  • A partial copy of our 2013 and 2012 joint US tax return.
  • Screenshot from my company of the designation of my life insurance to spouse (beneficiary)
  • Copies of  car insurance policy listing both our names
  • Copy of our Costco Club cards on a joint account.
  • Photo evidence of relationship
  • Copy of Easter card addressed to both my wife and I


We do not have a joint bank account or a joint credit card account.   We plan to send in the following since they are saying not enough was done to show co-mingling of liabilities.


​will show that spouse pays for multiple utilities even though they are listed in my name (cable bill, air conditioner that we had to purchase for our home when it broke last year, electric bill)

we will send in actual tax return transcripts, as they said the copies we sent did not prove they were actually filed.

Copy of homeowners insurance documents.

gym membership in her name, but showing my payment of it

will show payment from my bank paying her medical hospital copay (they suggested showing mutual payment of healthcare expenses)

more notarized affadavits


Anything else anyone can think of to show commingling of liabilities in absence of a joint bank account?   Is it too late to start one and show that proof now to send in with the RFE second round of paperwork?

arrowLooking for Shipping advice/help to move personal belongings to the US

I am sure this has been posted many times before but I am unable to find something that fits my situation so please forgive me for posting this again (hopefully in the right spot).


I am moving to California from Vancouver, BC Canada next month and I am looking for a way to ship my personal belongings. I have managed to condense everything that needs to be shipped into 5 boxes, but I am having issues finding a way to ship them that seems to be at a reasonable cost.


The entire contents is basically mementos and memories, some books, a couple of glass tea sets/espresso sets, decorative knick knacks etc. There is really nothing of any actual value, just sentimental stuff. Basically everything is worthless yet priceless.There is no point in using a major moving company for 5 boxes, but I am having trouble going through UPS as they want everything to have an assigned value or date of purchase. A lot of stuff I did not even purchase myself as they were gifts collected over the years. 


For the duty free forms I know we have to have an itemized list, how specific does it have to be? And again, how do you assign a value to things that are really just memories or personal collections that have no monetary value? 


Any suggestions or tips on how to ship these items would be greatly appreciated, I am finding this much more stressful than I anticipated! 


As a side note, would it just be worth it to send down piece by piece over the next month and not claim them as personal belongings? Is there any risk or is it against any rules?


Thanks in advance :)
