First Step Taken

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I finally found time to finish the I-130 package this morning after a week of going so slowly it nearly killed me. I didn't want to make mistakes. So, I headed to Kinko's to get copies. The first copier got jammed. The assistant came to help, but it still wouldn't work. The second copier wouldn't copy. The assistant tried to help but no luck. Finally, he takes my paperwork and makes a copy himself and gives them to me on the house for all of the trouble. I headed downtown to the post office. Closed. I drove back to Kinko's to try and FedEx. They can't deliver to PO Boxes. But, the helpful assistant tells me about a post office across town that is open later on Saturdays. I drive miles on a strange snowy day in NC to the other post office. Finally...it's on it's way with Airmail and delivery confirmation. I feel great to be over that first heart attack, but I'm also a little pensive. Oh well...begin the begin.

Its not really required to have passport copies in with the application for I-130. It just alot of people like to add it for extra information or incase something might be wrong. Dont worry you wont get a RFE over it!

I fully understand the trauma of the I-130 and the checking and rechecking to make sure all is done properly. I am in Atlanta and my wife is in London. We are now awaiting our 2nd NOA from the I-129 so I am working on the I-134 (affidavit of support) The trick is to stay one step ahead of the process that way you can check, recheck and triple check your papers....Wayne
