how to set out I-130 supporting evidence, and is it needed for the I-129

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We have just submitted all the supporting evidence (of proof of relationship) for my American husband's spousal visa for Australia (where I am from), and am now collating it again to submit my I-130 for the USA. Australia was very clear that this supporting evidence not be put in folders or even stapled together. I have not seen any official statement as to how they wanted this submitted, but I have read one personal recommendation to put it in a folder with tabs marking the various types of evidence. Any advice as to how you submitted your evidence?

I was also wondering if supporting evidence of proof of relationship has to be submitted again when I submit for the I-129 for the K-3 visa.

I know that I need to submit the marriage certificate and birth certificates etc. for each form.

By supporting evidence I mean the affidavits from family, joint finances and travel together, meeting family, tickets showing us having flown to meet each other or family flying to our wedding etc..

I know that there is some debate as to whether it is worth applying for the K-3 visa now-days. In my case, I am hoping for a medical exemption from vaccination on the grounds of previous severe reactions to them. Vaccinations are not required for a non-migrant K-3 visa, and so I am hoping the K-3 visa will let me in the the USA if the immigrant visa is delayed by to-ing and fro-ing between my allergy specialist and the panel doctor on this issue (or if it is refused and I need to apply for a moral exemption instead).

Don't file the I-129F. The K-3 was killed a few months ago and can only slow up your petition. Since there is no more K-3 visa, I doubt you'll get the expemptions for the vaccines

Take a look at the guides on how to assemble the package.

Good luck

The K-3 isnt completely dead, but the I-129F & I-130 will probably get approved the same day. Once the NVC sees this they will put you on the CR-1 track. I have read where people that put in for the K-3 have actually been slowed down for a couple of weeks. The CR-1 is a far superior visa compared to the K-3 anyway.

You don't need to submit the evidence again if you're going to file the I-129F, you will need to submit a copy of the NOA1 for the I-130 with it.

Not sure about how to submit the supporting evidence because we only sent what was required for our I-130 (no photos, boarding passes etc) but we did not staple anything. It was all clipped together.
