You can send scans/photocopies of things like birth certificates and such, but know that they may request originals if they feel the need to.

if it requires the petitioner or beneficiary's signature - make sure that's original.

anything else ? a photocopy is sufficient.

sending a divorce decree? a photocopy of the certified copy is sufficient, but it must show the seal or the stamp in the photocopy.

While you're making copies go ahead and make 2. Later on you will send your love an exact duplicate package of everything you are sending in now. And yes, they have the right to request to see the original document layer but you can send copies in now. Unless, like was already said, it's a form with a signature. Good luck.

IMPORTANT QUESTION for ALL the Visa Journey Followers !!

Me and My Fiance have filed our petition the last week of January 2013,Few Days after we got an I-797C notification saying that they got our file and all was fine.

After almost 6 MONTHS waiting ( now almost July 2013) My Fiance who is my petitioner got ANOTHER I- 797C notification saying that our case has been transfered to

TEXAS because they have the jurisdiction over our case. We started with VERMONT ...and NOW our papers are going to TEXAS??

Please, Has any of you had to go through something like this ??

I would appreciate your experiences or knowledge about this situation !

THANK YOU GUYS !
