Hey everyone,

Need some help. I have my interview in montreal on Feb. 18th. As you all know, for Montreal case numbers, the way to submit all supporting documents to the NVC was through electronic processing. Well......our lawyer made the mistake to send in the Affadavit of support forms by mail. Later, when i called the NVC the lady told me that it would not be accepted and we were to resend it by email - which we did. We got our case completed.

Now, that we have our interview set up and I am getting all of my papers in order, I know I need to bring in the AOS papers with the ORIGINAL signatures - which we dont have since they were mailed in to the NVC.

Question: Does the NVC mail that package to the Consulate in montreal even if we were supposed to do it electronically? I have copies but, i dont want to be refused a visa becauase they dont have the original signatures?

any help would be great...

one last question - for my husbands W2 and tax papers - do those need to be originals too? I would assume not sicne he needs to file those in to the IRS at some point....anyone know the answer???!!

THANKS VJers!

Moved from Removal of Conditions forum to US Embassy and Consulate Discussion as the more appropriate forum for this discussion.

You will need to have most if not all originals with you. If you do not have them you may print all the forms again and sign and date with original signatures. Our Interview was Feb 1, were approved and we have our visa in hand. Based on our experience the documents you will need and they will keep were : Appointment letter, I-864 (original signature), DS-230 (original signature), Tax Transcripts from IRS (or 1040 with original signature we had both and for the past 3 years, they kept only tax return form 1040 for 2009 original and copies of 6 month paystubs), Medical envelope, 2 Passport Pictures, Original Police Certificate/s, Passport.

Further they need following original documents that will be returned to you same day : original marriage certificate/license, Birth certificate (long form). The following we had available but we were not asked to see: employement letter any other additional / proof , of relationship.

P.S tax forms he may reprint /copy and sign and date even with todays date. You can do the same with other documents. It would be easier if you have saved your scanned copies of above mentioned forms and just print the signature page and sign it with approriate signatures. Don't forget to sign up for DHL delivery at your nearest location.

Again...

I don't beleive so, that is the purpose of electronic processing to reduce paper clutter. They may transmit your scanned documents electronically to the consulate meaning they don't have the originals.

Good luck in your inteview!! Make sure you have everything before you get there ....will be OK!!

I don't really have an answer for you and hope you can figure it all out by the time of your interview, but I would like to point out to other members that this problem is happening because of a mistake a LAWYER made. That's why most of us choose to complete the forms and go through the process by ourselves... I checked the accuracy and completeness of my petition packet more thoroughly and carefully than any lawyer could have because I really cared about receiving an approval and not getting a RFE. To the OP, best wishes to you!


August 23, 2010 - I-129 F package sent via USPS priority mail with delivery confirmation.

August 30, 2010 - Per Department of Homeland Security (DHS) e-mail, petition received and routed to California Service Center for processing. Check cashed. I-797C Notice of Action by mail (NOA 1) - Received date 08/25/2010. Notice date 08/27/2010.

After 150 days of imposed anxious patience...

January 24, 2011 - Per USCIS website, petition approved and notice mailed.

January 31, 2011 - Approval receipt notice (NOA 2) received by mail. Called NVC, given Santo Domingo case number, and informed that petition was sent same day to consulate.

Called Visa Specialist at the Department of State every day for a case update. Informed of interview date on February, 16 2011. Informed that packet was mailed to fiance on February, 15 2011.

February 21, 2011 - Fiance has not yet received packet. Called 1-877-804-5402 (Visa Information Center of the United States Embassy) to request a duplicate packet in person pick-up at the US consulate in Santo Domingo. Packet can be picked-up by fiance on 02/28.

March 1, 2011 - Medical exam completed at Consultorios de Visa in Santo Domingo.

March 9, 2011 at 6 AM - Interview, approved!

March 18, 2011 - POE together. JFK and O'Hare airports. Legal wedding: May 16, 2011.

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.

one of the major guidelines about EP is that anything submitted to NVC via the email thingie -

must be presented as original document on interview day.

The I-864 is easy to reproduce, ask that spouse of yers to make one nowish, get it to you.

---

copies of tax forms are OK.

original signatures ONLY required on the I-864 forms.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

Oh thank you sooo much! I feel relieved right now!!! So basically, just reprint the I-864s online and have him fill them out and send them to me. And the tax forms can be photocopies right? im just worried they are going to want the original tax forms. thank you!!!!

Most people file their tax returns electronically, so they don't have "original" tax forms. People who send an actual paper return to the IRS also wouldn't have the original because, well, it was sent to the IRS!.

In other words, nobody actually has the "original" tax forms. What they might have is the original supporting documents, like W2's or 1099's.

People who file electronically can get printed copies of the forms, either from their tax preparer or using the tax preparation software they use, but they should put their signature on the forms for the affidavit of support. Photocopies of the forms and supporting documents are fine.

Tax transcripts from the IRS are much simpler.

Gotcha. Its just the 2009 tax transcripts I have are black and white and are poorly photocopied. So i was just wondering if we needed the original tax forms from which we photocopied from. Im from canada so have no idea what a W2 or 1099 is haha.... all I know about is our T4s :) I assume thats the same thing.
