I-130 for parents

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am sponsoring my parents to come to the US. What supporting documents do I need to file?

More specifically, I have my birth certificate, their marriage certificate (they were married only once) and my naturalization certificate.

Should I also send their birth certificates or they should be attached later with some other forms?

Also, should I send them in separate envelopes or together?

We are doing the same for Alla's mom. We sent ALLA's birth certificate (translated), Alla's citizenship certificate and that's about it. You do not need the parents birth certificates for the I-130 petition. The petition is just to establish that you have a "petitionable relationship" You are a citizen, they are your parents. Done.

Both can go in one envelope but I suggest you use separate checks for payment. Attach separate documents to each petition.

They will need their birth certificates and other documents for the visa interview
