S.O.S RFE Divorce Decree

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have posted it before but no many responses. So i post it again.

On replying the first RFE we sent them Original Certified Copy of Final Judgement of Divorce signed by the Clerk of the County and it has gold embossed seal. Now we got 2nd RFE for the same exact thing; Proof Termination of Marriage. So what should we send them this time to proof that the prior marriage has been terminated?.

If you send us the example of the next document that we have to send, will be appreciated much.

Which county? Just how and when did you obtain the certified copy?

Is there only one divorce in question? Was there only one divorce among you both?

A second RFE for the same thing would be highly unusual. If they are not satisfied with the response to the first RFE, they almost always deny the petition.

Please provide the actual text of each RFE.

He should be the one who answer this properly but i will try since he is sleeping now. It's sleeping time in U.S, right?

It was in Talbot County, Maryland. For what i know he obtained the Certified Copy by going to the Court directly.

(Is there only one divorce in question)I am sorry i dont understand this part. For what i know, yes only one my fiance who came to the Hearing of Final Divorce because his ex wife never showed up nor give any response even after the court sent her mail for three times. My fiance said that normally the judge can not issue the Final Divorce Decree after the Hearing. It needs 20-25 days but since she never show up nor response, so the judge could do it.

For the first RFE i have to search it first.

This is THE 2ND RFE:

USCIS HAS REVIEWED YOUR PETITION AND SUPPORTING EVIDENCE. YOU DID NOT SUBMIT SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE TO ESTABLISH THE TERMINATION OF YOUR PRIOR MARRIAGE TO (THE PLAINTIF'S NAME). YOU SUBMITTED A DOCUMENT FROM THE CLERK OF THE CIRCUIT COURT BUT NOT THE ACTUAL FINAL DIVORCE DECREE. THEREFORE, ADDITIONAL EVIDENCE IS NEEDED.

SUBMIT PROOF OF THE LEGAL TERMINATION OF THE MARRIAGE OF (THE DEFENDANT) AND (THE PLAINTIF).

SUCH PROOF WOULD NORMALLY BE A FINAL (ABSOLUTE) DIVORCE DECREE, DEATH CERTIFICATE, ANNULMENT, ETC. IN ORDER FOR THE LEGAL TERMINATION OF MARIAGE TOBE CONSIDERED VALID FOR IMMIGRATION PURPOSES, IT MUST HAVE BEEN REGISTERED WITH A CIVIL AUTHORITY.

NOTE: A DIVORCE NISI IS NOT CONSIDERED TOBE EVIDENCE OF A FINAL DIVORCE.

Have him go to the court again and request a certified copy of the divorce decree. Then mail a high quality photocopy of that certified copy in response to the RFE. Generally, certified copies of divorce decrees are issued only some time after a divorce is final and registered with the applicable government agency. If what he obtained was on the day of the divorce, that's probably not a certified copy.

Yes, it's sleeping time in the USA but I'm currently in China, where it is 4:15 in the afternoon Wednesday.
