Passport photocopies

For our K1 application we will be sending photocopy of all pages of Jamals US passport as proof of citizenship. The reason for this is his birth certificate has the wrong last name on it - it took him years of problems to get his passport to the correct name and we are worried that it will delay the application. Also his passport shows millions of stamps to the UK from when we've been on trips to Europe. Do we need to get this notorized? We have more proof that he is a US citizen as he is in the US Airforce - would it be worth it to send a photocopy of his military ID? We've also got copies of his orders to the UK and to his next base.

The passport will be fine. I photocopied the covers as well. Each and every page. As to the ID, not necessary but if it puts your mind at ease, send it.

Tamzyn,

The passport photocopies will be adequate to prove US citizenship. You do not need to have the photocopies notarized.

As an FYI, you do not need to be a US citizen to serve in the US military. As an example, their are many Filipino citizens serving in the US Navy. Thus, the military ID does not prove citizenship.

Non-U.S. Citizens can only serve in the military for 5 years then have to declare U.S. citizenship or separate from the service. Most service members apply for AOS as soon as they come on active duty.

But to answer her question, I included a copy of my miiltary ID as well as the copies of passport pages. Good luck, Payato

Service in the armed forces does not require citizenship so his military ID does not help show citizenship. His passport is adequate proof.
