arrowRFE response combined with frontloading???

Hey guys!


I've got an RFE for the I-130 form. It has to be corrected because of some wrong filled blanks.


My question is, if it makes sense to add any kind of "late frontloading info" to our RFE response, because we forgot to frontload our petition before sending in the I-130 application package a couple of months ago, means we haven't sent in any of this relevant stuff here yet:


1. Documentation showing joint ownership or property; or 2. A lease showing joint tenancy of a common residence; or 3. Documentation showing co-mingling of financialresources; or 4. Birth certificate(s) of child(ren) born to you, thepetitioner, and your spouse together; or 5. Affidavits sworn to or affirmed by third parties havingpersonal knowledge of the bona fides of the maritalrelationship (Each affidavit must contain the full nameand address, date and place of birth of the person makingthe affidavit, his or her relationship to the petitioner ofbeneficiary, if any, and complete information and detailsexplaining how the person acquired his or herknowledge of your marriage); or 6. Any other relevant documentation to establish that thereis an ongoing marital union.


I also want to avoid any additional RFEs and let it move smoothly the next steps.



Or is it better just to respond to what they want (in this case sending in a corrected form I-130) to not overload their worktables?



They haven't asked for a proof of bona fide marriage in this RFE!



Thank you for your responses!

Hi all


We finally have our I-130 package ready and will be going to Frankfurt on Wednesday to deliver in person. 


This is what we have in our package:


Completed and signed form I-130

Money order for $420

Form G-325A completed and signed by petitioner

Form G-325A completed and signed by beneficiary

Passport sized photo of petitioner

Passport sized photo of beneficiary

Photo page of petitioner's passport

Proof of German residence for petitioner (military orders)

Marriage certificate

Divorce certificate from petitioner

Divorce certficate from beneficiary

Property lease in joint names

Petitioner's life assurance document showing beneficiary as beneficiary

Car insurance in joint names

Car title in joint names

ADAC statement in joint names

Bank statement in joint names

Tricare health insurance document showing beneficiary as petitioner's spouse and beneficiary

Wedding invitation

Honeymoon flight itinerary and hotel bill in joint names

Flight itinerary from summer vacation showing petitioner, beneficiary and petitioner's son on tickets

Selection of family photos (wedding, family get togethers, honeymoon)

Copy of letter from hotel confirming upcoming vow renewal ceremony


We haven't included any emails or skype logs in the initial package as we have been living together for over a year and thought we would print some to take with everything to the interview.  We can these together if we need to take some.


Please let me have your thoughts as to how our package looks, any advice will be welcome, I may have overlooked something extremely obvious on my list!!


Also, how is the best way to submit everything?   Folder, clip, hole punched and tagged, stapled?  


Thanks!! :-)

arrowHelp! Frankfurt Embassy wait times & I-797 Approval Notice Expiration Date - will it be too late?

Hello all,


I have a very urgent question: Due to a number of reasons, we were kept up in filing Packet 3.

I believe I am now ready to send it out tomorrow (Monday, November 24th, 2014).

But our I-797 Notice of Action reads that the approval of our visa is valid until January 7th, 2015.

If I don't get the interview or my visa by that date (and processing times at the embassy seem to suggest that that's a possibility), will we lose the application and have to do the whole thing over again?

Sorry but I'm really panicking about this. Could this be a possibility? Is there anything we can do?


Thanks a LOT for your answers!

arrowAnother workload transfer from TSC To CSC ??

Hey guys.

I'm a early september filer and so sick and tired of the discrepancy between TSC and CSC !! It's so frustrating !!! Well since CSC is working on late OCTOBER (!!!) petitions, why don't they just transfer some petitions being stuck at TSC to CSC ?? What do you guys think about that? Are there any chances for that to happen in order to speed things up at TSC ? I just think its so unfair :(

arrowMailing documents to Franfurt embassy - last minute questions!

Hey you guys! 


So I am FINALLY able to mail this stuff! 

After our K-1 application got approved in September, I submitted the DS-160, and have paid the necessary fees. 

Getting the most up-to-date police certificates and having them translated along with my birth certificate was what kept me up so far, but I finally got all the necessary documents. 


I just have a few more questions: 


1) We have a co-sponsor for form I-134. She filled out the same form as my US fiance and has provided supporting evidence. Do we need to include a note or cover letter of some sorts saying that she is the co-sponsor? Do they need an ID from her or are the documents which prove her financial status enough?


2) Our co-sponsor has provided pay stubs up until the end of October, but only bank statements until the end of September. 

Also, there is one pay stub missing from the second week of October in my fiance's supporting documents that he's not able to find. Would that be a problem? 


3) The "Immigrant/Fiance(e) & K Visa Application Checklist" tells us that we only need to include one photo for each applicant. So just one photo for me, right? I've seen information that it should be two photos somewhere else. Which is it? 


4) Finally, I have had my fiance send me his Letter of Intent with just his signature. The checklist says nothing about mailing it along with the rest of the documents but USCIS sometimes leaves out information. Should I send it along and is it right to have a Letter of Intent with just his signature or should we both send separate ones again? 


5) In preparation for the interview, the Checklist (which is specific to the Frankfurt consulate) says to only bring the visa fee (doesn't apply to me since I've already paid it) and my current valid passport to the interview. Is this really all?! I've heard of people having to bring tons of stuff - whole binders in fact. More relationship proof, etc. Does anyone know what the deal is with that? 



As always, thank you all SO much for all of your help and input!
