Couple more questions before I file!

Recommended Posts

Can someone clarify for me if I need to include 2 passport pictures or not?

I do not think so based on what I read on instructions, but I am double checking..just in case.

Thanks a lot!

Will it be okay if I send pictures and write description on the back of each picture?

If i include cover letter, who signs the cover letter- my husband, myself, or both?

:blush::crying:

Yes, you have to attach 2 passport pictures or you both will get a RFE as happened to us.

You can write your name in the back of the picture with black ink.

You have to prepare 2 letters, one for you to sign and one for your SO

no Passport photos needed unless you live over seas.

What I did with the pictures was to add a note under them ( I placed on 8 x 10 white sheet ).

On the cover letter I the USC spouse signed only

Thanks for that! So, no pictures, US citizen signs cover letter.

Does it matter of I just write on the back of every picture a description and put all pictures in a separate envelope that goes in the bigger one with all the paperwork?? I'm thinking they will bother to look at the pictures and read the back of I let them know I describe picture on the back?

We sent the cover letter from both of us -- technically, it's the non-USC who is filing anyway, so if you really wanted to make the letter be only from one person, surely it should be from the non-USC? In reality, I think it doesn't make one whit of difference. :P

I wrote the cover letter and I'm the petitioner. I don't think that makes any different but it's just my opinion.

Yup, no pics unless you live abroad. Remember to sign the damn form ( say this as a reminder to myself :P )

We will send one cover letter signed by both; since it is a joint petition.

Yes, you have to attach 2 passport pictures or you both will get a RFE as happened to us.

You can write your name in the back of the picture with black ink.

You have to prepare 2 letters, one for you to sign and one for your SO

:no: Wrong info as stated in my previous post. No photos, and just one letter. Read the form's instructions.

Exactly! It really is a non-issue. Cover letters are optional, anyway.

Edit to add: okay, hands up, I'm an idiot. It's a joint petition. Vegas clearly fried my brain.
