DS 230

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

hi again everyone ... I have a question about the DS-230 documents ... I, the petitioner was previously divorced, my husband the beneficiary has never been married before ... The DS-230 which is mainly for the beneficiary, asks for documents of marriage, beneficiary's birth certificate, etc .... they also ask for a divorce decree if any ...... would that pertain to my divorce decree? I do have an extra certified copy on hand but I didn't know if I should send it or not

thanks for any input

have a great journey

yes I did ... and thanks for the response ... but I wasn't sure what the NVC has at this point

If the beneficiary has not been previously married then you dont need to send your divorce decree with the DS230 docs. Just make sure the beneficiary has it during the interview as they almost always ask for it.

NVC is looking for the beneficiary's civil documents and the petitioner's financial documents. If your petition was approved, USCIS and NVC already have what they need regarding YOUR former marriages.

Just curious why at interview they need copy of petitioner divorce certificate. I thought that was for USCIS.. What else do they need at interview from the petitioner??

Not sure where it is that "they almost always ask for it" ??

We were not asked for my husband's divorce decree (the USC petitioner) nor mine (the beneficiary) at our interview. Both were submitted with the I-130 petition and only mine with my DS-230 as others have posted.

I did bring additional copies to the interview "just in case" but had no need for them.

Any photocopy (solely) submitted prior to interview day, must bring original ON interview day, regardless of who's it is. as to why, I see it in instructions, so must already be part of some regulation.

Good Luck !
