Hi All,

Congrats to all who have been approved and good luck to all still waiting. I made a big mistake by sending my original marriage certificate and my wife's orignal birth certificate to USCIS with my I-130 package. Too bad I found VJ after the fact. Well now I know the orignals are actually needed for the NVC stage. So my question is, does anyone have any experience in this type of situaion? Darnell and Loto both gave me some good advice already. From what I can tell I have two, maybe three options: Call USCIS and see if they can pull out the necessary docs and send to NVC, or file form G-884 which requests USCIS to send back the oriignals. Just not sure how long the process of getting docs back would be. As a last result I can try to possibly have my wife get a new orignal birth certificate and marriage license made and sent to me. Any insight? Thank you.

To request the ORIGINALs back from USCIS... you need to send the exact copy of the requested document. if you dont have it then you might as well continue your route to the NVC using certified or other originals that you will get from the issuing post. It's a straight shot answer and requesting the document. I've submitted my request to get my originals back used for my parents case.. it has been 1 month and still awaiting the response so they can be used in the "other" pending case we have - F2A
