Hi,

Me and my wife are putting together an I-130 packet for her siblings to come to the United States, the following is what we have thus far:

Signed copies of the I-130 form for each sibling

Copy of my wife's birth certificate

Copy of my wife's siblings birth certificates

Copy of my wife's U.S. Passport <---Proof of being a U.S. Citizen

Money Order/Cashiers Check for $420 for each petition

What else should be included in the packet? Will a copy of the birth certificates be enough or do they require the original? My wife and her siblings all have the same father and mother. Also, listed on the I-130 forms are the spouses and children of the siblings, if once approved, will there be an option for the spouses to stay behind and not come to the United States or would this void the process?

Thank you,

Keith & Xiang

You've got an 11+ year wait to decide who is staying and who is coming.

any documents not in English have to have a translation into English attached, so if the birth certificates aren't in English there needs to be a translation with it. only send copies for now.

Copies of the birth certificates should be sufficient. They need to be obtained at the GongZhengchu 公证处 with full English translation with the beneficiary and petitioner showing the same birth mother. Spouses and children have the option of not coming if they decide not to do so.


We are the poster children for chain migration!
