So frustrated.  I received a Checklist email notification with the checklist attachment.


It stated that it wanted the applicants birth certificate and the Police Certificate from South Korea.


I created 4 identical packets before submission.  Both documents were in the packet with an Avery label affixed that annotated the case number.


I have an ongoing Congressional regarding my case as well.  I contacted my immigration advocate at the congressman's office and we set a plan into motion.


I submitted her birth certificate as issued by the embassy in Seoul.  She is not Korean.  The certificate from the embassy stated everything they require and it was in English.  I am 100% certain this same type of certificate was accepted by mutual friends who had done direct consular filing.  If its good enough for them then why not good enough for me.


I submitted her Korean Police Certificate as Issued by the Korean Police with the appropriate stamps in place.


Both documents were included in the original submission packet.   


I am so frustrated right now.  Any advice would really be appreciated right now.

Here is the deal...

1.  We filed one I-130 for each of my wife's mother and father (2 total).  It was a approved, no NAO action---Sent to NVC.

2.  We have different NVC Case Numbers for each of her mother and father (2 total).

3.  I login to chase the next rabbit and I see under the Affidavit of Support (AOS) table:
Affidavit of support fee --- Paid
Affidavit of Support Documents & Financial Evidence --- N/A
Am I to assume it is N/A because we have not sent them yet?

4.  After login in the Applicant Information table (same page as section 3 above) I see:
Status --- Principal Applicant
IV Fee --- PAY NOW
When I click PAY NOW it takes me to the receipt for the AOS payment and I'm not able to do anything else... Seems correct?

3.  We paid one I-864 (Affidavit of Support) fee, it shows PAID for both her mother and father w/different NVC Case Numbers and Invoice ID Numbers.

Do we submit one AOS or two?

Next:  My wife is the petitioner, she is in the military (I am as well) however she just joined 1 1/2 years ago (E-3), thus her income is probably below the what is required.  With my income we are well above the required amount and will have zero issues.  I can co-sponsor/petition as well, correct?

I'm sure I will follow up with more questions....

Thanks for the help.

arrowSouth Korean "Divorce Decree"

For my K-1 petition, as proof of marriage termination I provided the Marriage Relation Certificate (혼인관계 증명서) for my South Korean fiancee.  However, I received an RFE asking for a final divorce decree signed by a judge.  From what I understand divorce decrees do not exist in South Korea and the Marriage Relation Certificate should have been sufficient (see http://seoul.usembassy.gov/acs_divorce.html). Does anybody have any experience with what needs to be provided to USCIS as proof of marriage termination for South Korea for divorce prior to 2008?


Thank you.
