Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have been reading this site for a couple of months now and have gotten alot of very good information and tips from it. I am about to submit my I-130 and would just like some feedback on the items that I am going to send. I would feel much more confident about sending this in with some comments from people who have been there and done that. Any advice would be appreciated!! Just some background information, my husband is from Peru, we were married almost 3 months ago, and we are applying for the K-3 so we can be reunited quicker.

cover letter, explaining that we are applying for the K-3 with a full list of what we are including

I-130

My G-325a and one passport photo

His G-325a and one passport photo

Check for the fee

3 letters of affadivate from Peruvian citizens who were present at our marriage and other occasions

Many photos from different dates and places

telephone records

copies of our myspace profiles (we communicate a lot through there)

receipts from when I mailed packages

some emails

Some conversations from MSN

a copy of my passport and birth certificate

copies of plane ticket stubs from when I visited him

Copies of western union transfer receipts

a spousal affidavit that I wrote stating our marriage is valid

a copy of the marriage certificate

Thanks in advance for all the help! :thumbs:

Looks good, just make sure you triple check the forms you filled out. I did not find a mistake on mine until the 4th time I checked them. Compare them to the example forms

And check your paperwork with these two links.

Hello,

I have been reading this site for a couple of months now and have gotten alot of very good information and tips from it. I am about to submit my I-130 and would just like some feedback on the items that I am going to send. I would feel much more confident about sending this in with some comments from people who have been there and done that. Any advice would be appreciated!! Just some background information, my husband is from Peru, we were married almost 3 months ago, and we are applying for the K-3 so we can be reunited quicker.

cover letter, explaining that we are applying for the K-3 with a full list of what we are including

I-130

My G-325a and one passport photo

His G-325a and one passport photo

Check for the fee

3 letters of affadivate from Peruvian citizens who were present at our marriage and other occasions

Many photos from different dates and places

telephone records

copies of our myspace profiles (we communicate a lot through there)

receipts from when I mailed packages

some emails

Some conversations from MSN

a copy of my passport and birth certificate

copies of plane ticket stubs from when I visited him

Copies of western union transfer receipts

a spousal affidavit that I wrote stating our marriage is valid

a copy of the marriage certificate

Thanks in advance for all the help! :thumbs:

Not that much difference in time now with the CR and K3. CRs are MUCH, MUCH better visas. Cheaper in the long run also.


K1 denied, K3/K4, CR-1/CR-2, AOS, ROC, Adoption, US citizenship and dual citizenship

!! ALL PAU!

very true...if your state is served by california service center you are better off just going the CR-1 route...easier, hassle free and cheaper by almost $1500...even for vermont service center, the max difference would be about 2 months...i know its hard to wait those two months but if u do results are more appealing and better..good luck with whatever decision u make...
