Ready to send in! Just looking for another pair of (fresh) eyes to look over the general list of packet contents and see if I'm missing anything obvious...


My cover letter, names/addresses removed:

Subject: I-130 petition for my spouse,.

Dear Sir/Madam:


My name is, I am a citizen of the United States. I am filing the included petition I-130 for my spouse,. I am petitioning for her to obtain a residency visa.


Enclosed are the following required and supporting documents for this petition:

  1. Form G-1145, e-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance.
  2. This Cover Letter
  3. Check in the amount of $420 for filing fee.
  4. Petition I-130 and 2 page continuation sheet.
  5. Copy of petitioner’s USA birth certificate
  6. Copy of beneficiary’s Venezuela birth certificate. Original in Spanish, followed by a certified English translation.
  7. Copy of our marriage certificate. Original in Spanish, followed by a certified English translation.
  8. Form G-325A for U.S. Citizen petitioner, and 1 page addendum.
  9. Passport-style color photo of the petitioner.
  10. Form G-325A for NON-U.S. Citizen spouse beneficiary, and 1 page addendum.
  11. Passport-style color photo of the beneficiary.
  12. Evidence of a bona fide relationship:
    1. A short summary of our story.
    2. Apartment rental contract in both our names. Original in Spanish, followed by a certified English translation.
    3. 24 Photographs from our wedding and the last 22 months together, labeled by date and occasion if relevant.


Please note carefully our address below, as we both live together in Venezuela. Please do not hesitate to contact me by phone, email, or at the address below. Phone is strongly preferred, due to the slow and intermittent nature of postal mail service here in Venezuela.


Thank you,


_____________________________                       ______________



POSTAL BOX MAILIING ADDRESS. Shortened address, formatted for a limited size 4x32 address block.



PHYSICAL ADDRESS. Does not receive mail.



I included a 2 page continuation sheet for the I-130, 1 page per question, each page signed, for the questions regarding current address.

My PO BOX address here is obscenely long, so i included a continuation sheet for the address question, listing physical address which cannot receive mail, PO BOX address, shortened 4x32 character PO BOX address, and a very short note explaining the purpose of the continuation and its contents.


I know i don't have to send in her birth certificate... but i have it... so I figured might as well.


The bona fide relationship part is a tad thin... but, I'll try to dig up more for the NVC stage if needed. Hoping this is enough to get through USCIS. We live together outside the U.S., but there's almost nothing to put a joint name on except the lease.

arrowCopied I-130 with an ORIGINAL signature?

After numerous delays, the packet is finally done. it's assembled, ready to go in the mail tomorrow morning. I'm sitting here reviewing EVERYTHING with a fine toothed comb for the umpteenth time. And then...


Make TWO copies of the entire package before you send it in. This includes the money orders too. You want to have a perfect replica of the package you are sending in. All Forms that you submit must be originals with original signatures. Supporting Evidence that you submit may be photocopies. Retain ALL original supporting Evidence since the USCIS has the right to check them by issuing an RFE (Request For Evidence). If you receive an RFE, follow the direction exactly, and make two copies of what you sent back. During any future interviews the USCIS may also want to examine the original supporting evidence.


What I have packed and ready to send out is a photocopy of an unsigned, handwritten I-130 form, with an ORIGINAL SIGNATURE added to the photocopied form. I did this because i had to use whiteout tape in a few places to cover up typos.


I KNOW the signature has to be original. But what about the actual form? is a photocopy of the form acceptable, as long as the signature (and date) is original???


I CAN send the "original" I-130... but it's got various whiteout spots......


PS: Same question for the G-325A :)

arrowcompaint about officers at POE?

Hello everyone,


My husband finally came to the US a little more than a week ago.  It's a big relief to us, although a stress for him as well of course due to homesickness.


So, first of all, a big thank you to all the VJ members who have provided helpful information and advice.  It certainly helped to make the process easier, as did searching a reading old discussion on the site.


Secondly, a question:  My husband felt very poorly treated by one of the CPB officers at his POE (Aruba).  Apparently she yelled at him and tried to get him to confess to opening the package from the embassy, while not speaking his language.  When they got another agent that spoke Spanish, the issue was quickly resolved.  He said it was disrespectful and seemed like an abuse of her power.  We were wondering where/how to make a complaint?  Would that be with USCIS, or is CBP separate from that?


Any suggestions would be appreciated.


Thanks again for all the support.

Hello all,

My fiancee has her interview appointment February 3rd and I will be traveling to go with her.


I received my employment letter from my employer and it says the I make $**.** per hour as a full time employee. My question here is if that is enough or does the letter have to say what my Annual income is??


Also, The interview appointment letter says I need to bring in two copies of form DS-160 but I alrady filled this form out electronically and submitted it. I got a confirmation email with an attachment that has her picture and a bar code... Is this what they are needing? or do I need to find a way to get back in the DS160 form and print it out?


Thank is advance

arrowParent's petition process

I recently petitioned for my mother, she just got her EAC. I was wondering if the process is the same as a spousal petition, specifically if she will receive a letter interview where we go together. It seems kind of odd as the whole point of that interview is to prove a bonafide relationship between spouses which seems necessary for my mom. Anyways, I just want to know what to expect. Any thoughts or input is greatly appreciated it.


Best wishes,
