I-130 queries for wife and step child

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

:blink: It's me again... My husband has started to put together the I-130 for me and my son. :blush: However, we have a couple questions:

1. Is it alright to have one covering letter for both my son and I or should there be two separate covering letters?

2. Should the evidence be numbered and page numbers indicated on the covering letter?

3. What evidence of a bona fied relationship is needed to be presented for my son (he is 2 years old)?

4. Does permission to take him out of the country need to be included in the I-130?

Thank you so much for all of your help :thumbs:

:blink: It's me again... My husband has started to put together the I-130 for me and my son. :blush: However, we have a couple questions:

1. Is it alright to have one covering letter for both my son and I or should there be two separate covering letters?

One cover letter is enough. I did one common letter for four separate I-130s without any problems. USCIS approved the four petitions and has already forwarded them to the NVC.

2. Should the evidence be numbered and page numbers indicated on the covering letter?

No need to do that. I did a bullet point list of the documents included as it may be helpful. But no need to number pages.

3. What evidence of a bona fied relationship is needed to be presented for my son (he is 2 years old)?

His birth certificate listing you as the parent. The bona fide relationship is between you and the US citizen, and that is that relationship that will be scrutinized. Having pictures of your son with his stepparent will be helpful in showing that you and he have a bona fide relationship. You don't need to show a bona fide relationship between your son and his US citizen stepparent.

4. Does permission to take him out of the country need to be included in the I-130?

No, not at the I-130 stage. At his interview for an immigration visa, you will need to proved a notarized letter from his other biological parent to allow him to immigrate to the US or a court order allowing him to immigrate to the US.

Thank you so much for all of your help :thumbs:
