Questions about I-130 and G-325

Thanks for taking the time to look and answer if you are able to.

A little update and background on our case.

After finally getting rid of the lawyer who did not know what he was doing, Christine and I have decided we are going to be finishing up everything on our own from here on out. With the assistance of everyone here we feel we are more than capable to do it.

First question is in regards to the lawyer, How do I get him removed from the USCIS DataBase in regards to being a point of contact for our petition and having anything to do with it?

After a congressional inquiry last December, USCIS finally moved their butts and found our file and sent an RFE though we still have not receieved the hard copy of that RFE. A nice USCIS customer Rep by the name of Officer Ortega, helped us out by faxing it to me instead of waiting for the hard copy. In that RFE besides the document they asked for, they offered to let us file the kids I-130's with expedited processing to catch up to Christine's. Which we had not filed because supposedly our Ex Lawyer knew what he was talking about.. I am just glad to get rid of him finally.

We have the I-130's ready to file and Christine has gotten the kids current passport style photos and the G-325's are filled out and for the petitions, Our question lies in the signing of the G-325 for the youngest Maelys. The Ex-Lawyer of ours did not require her to sign it herself when filed with the I-129F packet. Does Christine or myself sign that for her? Or does Maelys who is 10 years of age sign it?

Our next question is in regards to the childrens birth certificates, In the instructions for the I-130 the birth certificates are not required as of yet, but Christine and I are thinking of sending them in anyways.

Thanks for any help.

Hi John,

I would call USCIS and ask them what they would like you to provide to remove the lawyer's name from your file.

I'm not sure who should sign the child's G-325A

And yes, send the children's birth certificates - see this post for clarification: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=100209

I think, G-325A is only required when filing for spouse. My understanding is, you don't need G-325A for your kids. Please read the G-325A/I-130 instructions to find whether you need G-325A for your kids.


I-130 Timeline with USCIS:

It took 92 days for I-130 to get approved from the filing date

NVC Process of I-130:

It took 78 days to complete the NVC process

Interview Process at The U.S. Embassy

Interview took 223 days from the I-130 filing date. Immigrant Visa was issued right after the interview

The instructions only mention a G325a for a spouse. I sent one for my wife's daughter anyway. It won't hurt and it doesn't matter who signs it. The instructions don't say to send the child's birth certificate either but it's a really good idea if the child and mother don't share the same family name. It is evidence of a family relationship between the child and your their mother, your spouse. It's hard to tie Mr. Jones to Ms Smith's daughter if the daughter's name is Wilson, without a BC.
