I-130 supporting documents and what happens after it is approved?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Okay quick questions again, do I need to send in my original consular report of birth abroad (since I was born on a US airforce base in Japan) or can I just send in a photocopy of it? and same with the marriage certificate? will they send me these documents back? cause it sounds like we might need the again after the petition is accepted and we go on to the NVC.

Also, what is the process after it gets approved? how can we find out what documents we will need for that so we can be prepared for when that happens? I've been looking on the site but maybe it's on VJ somewhere I just thought I'd ask. We'd like to have everything ready as soon as possible so we don't have to go running around trying to make sure we have everything ready when the petition gets approved, which I realize could be a while anyway, but still. It's better to be prepared. Especially with things as important as this.

Oh also, can I send in just a copy of all the pages of my passport instead as proof of citizenship and do I need that notarized? if I need to get another consular report of birth abroad I can, I'm just making sure I don't send off originals if I don't have to.

Are you talking about the evidence of citizenship? It doesn't need to be birth certificate. A photocopy of every page in your passport will do (even the blank pages). It does not have to be notarized, just make sure it's a copy of every page.

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.
