K-3 I-130 for Vietnamese national

Hi, I am a US born citizen living in California. And I need some info to do my I-130 for my wife. I was wondering what else I needed to enclose with my I-130 paper, G-325A bios and the 4 passport pictures? Somebody told me that I needed to enclose copies of our birth certificates, wedding pictures, passport copies, phone records and everything along with the I-130. I looked on the USCIS website but they didn't mention it. So I was wondering what am I supposed to include in my mail package besides the I-130 and the Biographical info? thanks a lot in advance for any assistance.

Steve: proof of your US citizenship? Payment? Divorce/death certificates? Marriage certificate?

Best get back to the instructions (on the form and at the form page at uscis.gov) and triple check yourself.

thanks, just one more question, for some reason, i could not find this answer anywhere. But, I do not have to be present for the interview do I? I work for a private company and I don't know how much time I can get to go overseas for a trip if the interview/VIsa process drags on over there.

That's it, no Visa for you STEVE :)

Of course you don't have to be at the interview. This is how I understand it:

You (USC) petition for your "fiancee" to come to the US, to marry you. Hint: K-1 Visa.

Beneficiary (your honey) will need to be interviewed by HCMC after your petition is approved. ONLY the beneficiary will attend the interview, for the visa is for HER, not you. HOWEVER, to prepare for the interview, you and her will need to cooperate to get all the supporting evidence in order to have a better chance of passing the interview.

Relax? yes? no? :D

Chuck,

Going by the title of the thread, I think this is a K3 case.

OOPS!!! My bad!!!

It depends! Most cases, only the beneficiary, some extreme situtation will require the USC to attend the interview. They'll let you know!
