Hello,

We did an excellent job of providing USCIS with a thorough K-1 file that included substantial evidence of a bonafide relationship and ample proof of having met in the past two years. The G-325A and I-129F were filled out with precision and care. Low and behold, I went to check our status on USCIS website and discovered an RFE. :( The letter stated the following: "The copy of the divorce decree that terminated the marriage between petitioner and ex-wife does not show evidence of being civilly filed or recorded. Therefore, please submit a legible copy of the final divorce decree signed by a judge or magistrate that shows proof of filing that terminated the prior marriage between petitioner and ex-wife".

I provided a certified copy of the divorce decree that has the official court stamp on each page and is signed by the presiding judge per the instructions for form I-129F.

Do I need to provide the whole file (docket sheet, final judgement/decree, original petition, original answer, etc)? I have one chance to get this right; can't afford to make a mistake.

Thank you.

I sent my whole final decree I received from my lawyer after the divorce was finalized but on top of the judges signature on the decree it had a stamp from the county clerk of it being entered. If you are worried I was suggest going down to the courthouse and asking for a copy with a stamp showing it was entered.

My divorce decree was archived using microfiche and, shockingly, does not have a visible stamp or "filed on" date. Most people, even lawyers who submit these documents, probably wouldn't have noticed since every page is certified, but that's not good enough for USCIS. There is no way the court can retroactively reapply the stamp and file date, so they offered an "exemplified copy". Exemplified copies are more than certified copies -- the clerk certifies that the copies are genuine and the judge certifies that the clerk has the authority to say they are genuine.

Hoping now that USCIS will have sympathy and expedite our case since this wasn't our error.
