Letter of Consent for Stepchild?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello there. I hope someone can help me.

I am ready to send in my husband and stepson's DS-230 documents, and I have a question or two.

The online Consulate instructions tell me to fill out Part 1, so what do I do with Part 2? Do I send it in (unsigned) or bring it to the final interview?

Also, my stepson's mother is sending a letter of consent. Do I send a copy of this in with the DS-230? I don't see instructions for sending in extra documents, but I seem to remember reading that it is necessary at this point.

Thanks in advance,

Allison

I just got a CASE COMPLETE at NVC so I will tell you my own experience. I am the beneficiary and I sent to the US 3 DS-230 (one for me plus two for my children). I filled out parts I and II (complete DS-230) but I signed just part I, which is what you have to do. Now just a detail, I signed on behalf of the children and put after my signature (MOTHER OF XXXXXX), but they are minors (8 and 5yo).

And I already have their biological father consent to relocate them permanently to America, but I didn't mail along in their IV packets and NVC didn't ask for that. But that would be something to look up at London Consulate or maybe take it to the interview. Good luck!

Thanks for that advice. I appreciate your taking the time. Just to clarify, did you send in both parts of the DS-230, leaving the second part unsigned? Or did you just mail Part 1 and bring the other with you to the interview?

Good advice on the signing, too. My stepson is 10.

Thanks again,

Allison

Yes, I sent NVC the complete DS-230, which means part I and part II, but just part I signed, part II has to be mailed unsigned. Fill out part II also, you have to check some boxes.
