Today, I received a blue letter form INS and it is RFE.

It said that I have to send them the original marriage certificate for RFE which I have and I can reply straight away, but I was wondering if it is required to include the original marriage certificate in I-751 package?? I didn't include it in our I-751 package and the instruction does not say that you have to.

I am just curious. I hope this is not going to delay the process...

May 08: I-751 sent to VSC

May 12: received @ VSC

May 24: NOA 1

June 01: Biometrics appointment letter received

It isn't very common but they do state in the instructions:

"Requests for More Information. We may request more information or evidence, or we may request that you appear at a USCIS office for an interview. We may also request that you submit the originals of any copy. We will return these originals when they are no longer needed."

True for those who were married here in the "states"...for those of us married abroad, we might not have as easy of a time obtaining an original or certified copy....good luck to all....
