Filed: IR-1/CR-1 Visa Country: Russia

My question is about the following. We sent in all the required documents, but just photocopies... I did call NVC and yes they did say just photocopies are fine of all these required documents. Where my wife is from there's not a notary. They are all just as mentioned b4 just photocopies. Do you think it will be Ok? anyone know from experience? She is in Russia right now and I'm here waiting for her.. I130 is approved and all visa fees are paid. Affidavit of support is processed and Ok. The ds230 should be reviewed this week according to their timeline. She has all the original documents at her home. Can she just take them to the embassy during interview? Id like to know if we will be ok or not, Ive met some of the rudest people working at the NVC and they really couldnt care less about my questions. Thanks!

There is just no way to know until they notify you--be prepared to send all the originals if that is their decision, and also be prepared to laugh and dance if they say take everything to the embassy !!
