I-130 for parents in different countries

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Apologies in advance if this is information that is in FAQ's, but I couldn't find it. My wife's parents reside in different countries (former USSR republics) and hence are supposed to go through separate US embassies for their I-130 interviews. Are are currently in the final steps for both I-130's, submitted both applications (DS-230) along with all the originals to NVC in one envelope. However, some documents had to be submitted in single form, e.g. parents' certificate of marriage, wife's (petitioner's) birth and marriage certificate. Now we received a letter from NVC that some documents are missing for one of the parents, namely, these documents that were submitted in a single copy. Calling NVC confirmed that both applications/embassies require originals. Due to various issues (e.g. getting an official replacement copy of a birth certificate invalidates the original as per local officials) it looks like it would be very difficult to obtain the second set of documents. Is it our only option to have one parent go through the interview, get the originals back and then submit them to continue processing the other parent?

Thank you.
