DCF in Santo Domingo

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I am ready to start DCF in Santo Domingo. I've been working for about 4 months in the DR. I came on December and traveled back on march to the states for two weeks. I just want to know from you guys who have experience with this. Do I need to file all the paperwork at once? What exactly do I need besides the I-130 and supporting Documents?It's so hard to find like a checklist or step by step article about DCF :wacko:.

I'll really appreciate any help.

As you mentioned, you'll need supporting evidence. (Don't ignore it and assume you might not need to provide evidence of your marriage, otherwise you might end up with an RFE like me and waste a bunch of time)

This is a (rather extremely) detailed cover letter, minus the evidence of bona fide marriage obviously, I provided USCIS with when I sent my I-130 to Frankfurt. You should do some more research to learn what differences there are between the field office in Santo Domingo and Frankfurt, but the required documents should be about the same. Hope this helps...
