Submitting MORE evidence with NVC packets

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone submitted more evidence of relationship at the NVC stage? Whether they ask for more or not?

Can you submit more even if not requested and if so how should I send? I mean attach with the AOS, IV bill, what?

I ask this because our wedding photos are gone, missing so we didn't have anything to submit with the initial I-130 Petition. Although I am not at the NVC stage yet I will be going back to Nigeria and we will than do the traditional and formal ceremony so many pics will be taken (we just had courthouse registry wedding before).

So any ideas or suggestions. Trying to get myself ready for next few months of waiting on that NOA2.

And I know you may be thinking just take pics to interview but they may never ask for pics I want to frontload as much as possible.

Thanks for your time

You can submit additional evidence to the NVC if you wish to do so. Be aware that doing so will likely slow NVC processing, however, given the reputation the Consulate in Lagos has for being tough, it's probably a good idea to include such evidence so it is part of the file prior to an interview taking place. As you state, "I want to frontload as much as possible" and you are right, pictures or other such evidence may not be asked for by a CO or passed back by CO without so much as a glance if passing them through the window unsolicited. With that being said, such items should still be brought to the interview, even when frontloaded.

If you do decide to submit additional evidence to the NVC, the evidence would be included with the DS-230 package.

When my husband was at his interview, the CO asked him if he had any additional evidence. Even if he isn't asked, he can still submit something to him....When it comes our turn to go before the CO again, I will be saving some evidence, just for him to take to the interview, just minor items, whatever they request with their notification, I will submit, but in the case of front loading, I say do it, yet I also have it in the back of my mind that he should be walking in with evidence not yet seen as well, from the date of requested additional evidence to the date of the interview. We are not going down this time without a visa approval! :)

I don't know for sure the particulars at the NVC stage, hopefully someone will shed some light on it for you! :)

Thank you Ryan. So you know our Embassy LOL. I feel confidant with what I initially submitted. But you know with all this free time and reading. You just want to do more.

I didn't think of the "slow things down" part don't like that.

I think when we get to that point I will just load up all new stuff which is massive. Emails which I only submitted a few, I will have everything printed or a good sampling. I didn't submit any SMS I now have over 3000 pages. It was mainly the pics and well if they want to see them they will ask right.

Thanks again for ur input it has helped. :)
