QUESTION ABOUT THE I-864 AOS PACKAGE

Hello Friends,

My husband has paid the $70-00 AOS Fee Bill and is waiting to get instructions about the I-864 Package that he will need to send.

If I have it right I'll need to provide him with the following documents for me and my 13 year old daughter:

1. DS 230, Part I & II for me and my daughter

2. Birth Certificates for me and my daughter

3. Our Marriage certificate

4. My Divorce Decree

5. The Passport Biographical Data for me and my daughter

6. My Police Clearance

7. Passport photos for me and my daughter.

My Questions:

1. Must the Birth Certificates, marriage certificate, and police clearance be the original documents, or is notarized copies ok?

2. Must I send these documents to my husband in the US per speed mail, or can I scan and e-mail it to him?

3. Must the birth certificates and marriage certificate be the "unabridged" certificates, in other words the "long" version?

4. Is there any other documents they will request from my side?

Thank you for all your help.

Don´t be confused--the I-864 AOS package and the DS-230 are two different things: the AOS package is sent by the applicant and the DS-230 is sent by the beneficiary. For the AOS, you don´t need to send him anything. Everything that is sent comes from him directly--taxes, employment letter, bank account documentation, etc.

For the DS-230, which you will send yourself, you need those other documents. All documents must be originals (long version), certified by the issuing agency, except for the copy of your passports. Those can just be notarized copies. Make sure you research exactly what police docs you need for your country. Seems most people get RFEs for not sending all the right police docs.

Good luck!

Thank you for all your help.

1) I'm getting notarized copies for mine.

2) I wouldn't scan it; they want to see the paper copies and with stamps, etc.

3) I would also get full, notarized copies of those. Don't leave anything to chance (to slow down your application).

4) Check with your embassy for the specific requirements.
