Co-Sponsor Question

Hello folks!

Yesterday my hubby and I filed a petition in Brussels so he can get his visa etc, and I asked the woman about the affidavit of support, how it works when there is a co-sponsor. She said they fill out the same forms, attach the copy of taxes and that I need a copy of the co-sponsor's passport.

Now here's my question, might be silly or already answered so apologies if that's the case, my father is the co-sponsor, he's ex military so he's never needed a passport. Does he NEED one to file for this or can some other form of ID be used?? He's not opposed to getting one, but it would just make life easier if we can use something else. Since they asked specifically for a passport I don't want to show up with just a copy of his driver's license and have them say we NEED the passport.

Thanks!

He has to prove he is either (A: USC) or (B:LPR)

Birth certificate can be used in liu of the passport.

Drivers license will not cut it.


My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.

If he cannot file with me will they accept a copy of his passport or will it have to be a certified copy of his bc? If so, do they need an apostille on the bc or will just a certified copy?

No apostille - they want to see a certified copy from the issuing office - so he needs to request one from the State where he was born - they don't want a photocopy etc.

Of course he could always send you the one he has (if he already has one).
