I-751 for children

5 posts in this topic

Hello,

Me (US citizen) and my wife (from Philippines) got married 3 years - filed for green card, got her permanent card almost a year ago now. We applied for her sons ( 10 year old ) green card one year after her original application, he got his 2-year temporary card and he is here in US. Now it is time to file I-751 for him. I have two uncertainties:

1. The form asks to specify "spouse or parent through whom you gained your conditional residence". So is this me, who was the one who filed affidavit of support/petition for alien relative and who is the original US citizen, or their mother, my wife, who it turn became a resident as a result of marriage to me?

2. We are married for 3 years and my wife already got her permanent card. When we submitted her I-751 a year ago we enclosed paperwork showing that we are "really married"-mortgages, bank accounts, letters from friends. Do we do the same for her son's application? Obviously he is her son - nothing to prove there ( birth certificate, of course ). And we already "proved" everything about me and my wife in her I-751. So ... what paperwork do we submit with her son's I-751?

Thanks in advance!

Anton

Hi,

We are waiting for my son's Removal of condition approval. However today, we just got an RFE related to your question #1. We made a mistake in putting my details (the alien spouse) in part 4 of Form I-751. The RFE was addressed to my son and was worded exactly like this:

Part 4 of Form I-751 refers to the United States citizen spouse or United States citizen stepparent through whom you gained your conditional residence. The information requested in part 4 should pertain to [name of US citizen step parent]. In addition, [name of US citizen stepparent] should also sign the petition. Please make the corrections and return the petition to this office.

So what we did is get the latest form from the US Immigration web site, repeated all the correct original information in the original form that we submitted. Placed the corrected information in part 4 and my US citizen husband signed the form in the signature of spouse area.

Regarding your question #2 - we sent an exact copy of everything that was sent for my Removal of condition, but we also sent additional updated bank statements (most current statements) and anything that had updates, etc. We haven't heard anything yet about evidences so it must have been okay except for this bad mistake regarding the form.

oh..and if your step children can already sign, don't forget to have them sign the form. I don't know what the procedure for if they are still too young to sign the form. You have to look that up in the instructions for the form.

for my daughter, I sent her school transcripts, any medical/ dental bills with her name on them, statements from her bank account, a copy of our car insurance showing she in an insuree and she works part-time so I also sent paystubs. Also, I sent a copy of my husband's medical insurance showing her as being insured.
