arrowNVC asking us to bring original police reports to interview... but they have them!

Hi everyone!


My husband just got his interview date at the U.S. Embassy in Madrid! Along with the date confirmation, we received an email from NVC with all the documents that he needs to bring with him to the interview. Everything looks good except that regarding his Spanish and Portugese criminal reports they say, "The NVC only received a photocopy of the document. You must present the original document at the time of your interview." The thing is, we DID send the originals of both criminal reports to the NVC. Is this one of their "false checklists"? I'm concerned because his interview is in about a month and it takes over a month to ask for a Portugese criminal report from abroad. Help!

arrowPlease help with RFE for i864

Hi everyone,


I hope someone can help me with this. I can't find the answer anywhere.



I filed I-130 and I-485 package in January. I received an RFE, request for initial evidence for I-485. It asks for the petitioner/sponsor's federal income tax return for the most recent year (which was already sent within all the other papers when I first filed them in January) and for the joint sponsor's too, among with more evidence of her income.

I put together all the papers and sent them. My surprise when I came back home that night and realised that I had left the tax return for my husband (petitioner) . I only sent the papers for the co-sponsor: a copy of the 3 most recent tax returns for the joint sponsor, 6 most recent paystubs and a letter from her employer. I tried to intercept the package via USPS so that they would return it to me but it didnt work and it has already been delivered.


What should I do now? Should I send the remaining papers?

I'm a little worried that this will really slow down the process, or even get it denied for imcomplete resonse.

Thanks you

Permanent SPANISH resident.

Colombian Citizen. 

Wants to apply for tourist visa to visit and be a tourist for the summer ;) 

College student who has never had a job in their lives. 

Has never left Spain since arrived 15 years ago.



is in process of becoming a Spanish Citizen (has been for a year now) 

also has entire family in Spain. Has the Carnet de Familia Numerosa. 

Is a university student... (what info does he need? A student ID?)

funny enough, he can't just "register" for next semester until September. (ugh spain and their ways) but he does have a form that says he needs to retake some exams in September. 


Also, parents would show their bank info since they are supporting the trip.


Is 3 months a long time to stay? Would this be a cause for denial? 


Any tips? Advice? Has anyone gone through the embassy at Madrid for a tourist visa?


I know it's a long shot, but might as well have a try.

arrowK-1 Fiance Visa, New to this,children together

My fiance and I have started the process and I have a couple of questions. Any help would be appreciated. We are now living in Spain and also have a 4 year old child together.


!. On the K-129 where it asks if he has any children do I put our daughter? Our daughter is an american citizen. She has a U.S passport and SSN and birth certificate, so she is able to go to the U:S without any type of visa. There is no space to put children we have together?


2. This questions concerns the I-134 form affidavit of support. I have been living and working in Spain for the past 7 years and will be going over before my fiance to do Job interviews. My parents have agreed to be co-sponsors. Do I still fill out a form and do my parents have to fill out the same form? The only evidence I have to show my support is a savings account. 


I hope I have posted this in the correct forum and Thank-you ahead of time for any help.

arrowTax transcript or 1040?

I have just posted a question, but thought it was best to put this separately.


My husband is a USC working abroad. He has recently done his tax returns, but it is too early to get the transcripts. They are not showing up on the IRS system yet. We have the 1040s that were completed for us by a Expat Tax return company, so can we send them and bring the transcripts to the interview.


Our IV bill is ready to be paid today and we have everything else. It would be a shame to delay things by another couple of weeks. We were thinking of sending the 1040s and all the worksheets etc that we were given by the company and putting a note that we would bring the transcript to the interview.


What do you think?


Thanks a lot..
