6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Newbie here and getting ready to apply for a K-1 visa for my fiance who is from Ecuador. She is sending me her divorce document which is in Spanish. Do I need to have that translated to English via a certify translater. And what about all of her other documents that I will need to submit either now or at the interview. Do all of these need to be translated from Spanish to English.

Any advise is greatly appreciated. Th

See the template here for translations. Anyone fluent in both languages can do the translation. The "certification" is simply the statement you see here. Anything submitted must be translated.

Certification by Translator

I, ______________, certify that I am fluent (conversant) in the English and ______ languages, and

that the attached document is an accurate translation of the document.

Signature:

Date:

<Translator's name>

<Translator's address>

Anything submitted to USCIS in any foreign language must be accompanied by its certified translation.

OP, please read the thread begun by "amcamp" in this forum (Just Getting Started), and (if you haven't yet) pay strong attention to the Ecuador-specific Embassy Info & Reviews, and read the thread in the U.S. Embassy & Consulate Discussion forum that's entitled "US Consulate in Guayaquil, Ecuador."


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."
