Original documents or certified original copies, photocopies, and translations of the following documents must be submitted to the National Visa Center for the applicant and each family member who will accompany the applicant to the United States.

* Birth Certificate

* Court and Prison Records

* Deportation Documentation

* Marriage Certificate

* Marriage Termination Documentation

* Military Records

* Petitioner Documents

* Photocopy of Valid Passport Biographic Data Page

* Police Certificate(s)

This is what is needed as per the "Department of State". but i did read somewhere to enclose 2 passport photos.

Question, why your birth certificate??

The DS-230 pertains to the beneficiary (non US spouse) only so only their birth certificate is required. And yes you need 2 passport style photographs. See these links for more detailed information. Good luck :thumbs:

when I called the nvc number one of the reps told me i needed that stuff then i called again and someone else told me I need to only send my husband's information documents.

Also does my husband sent the Orginal police certificate or does he send the photo copy to NVC?

and if we no longer wish to pursue the K3 do we just ignore it or call pakistan embassy and let them know we are pursing the CR1???

We sent 4 photos, can't remember where I read it - maybe LingChe shortcuts.

Anyways, have a fellow Feb Filer who sent two and then was told NONE were with her packet. Make sure to put the photos in a plastic ziploc bag and also I wrote SO's full name and date of birth on the back just like with the I-130.

I am worried about sending Original copies to NVC because when my husband has his interview it says he must have original documents with him... can he bring notarized photo copies to the interview?? NVC site states that the original documents are returned at the time of the intreview. What do you think is best??

NVC requires originals/certified copies- no way around that.

When they complete the processing on your case they will forward the whole thing to the consulate so that the original documents will be there for the interview. He doesn't have to worry about that. It's always a good idea to bring your own photocopies to the interview though, just in case.

This part only pertains to the beneficiary, no?

So this means that the USC does not need to send a birth cert, Police record or anything like that.

The DS230 is strictly based on the beneficiary and their information and original documents. I"m confused as to why you, the USC, are sending your birth certificate as well?

Let me know if you've some information thta I've not been made aware of.
