I have just received a RFE. They asked me to send my original Marriage certificate.

Has anyone else gone through this ?

If I send my original one then what are the chances of getting it back ?

I think there is little chance that you will get it back. Can you get an official copy?

Are you sure it was for the original? Can you get a certified copy? You can get it back, it's just quite a process to do so.

That's odd, I never knew that they ever asked for the original. It's possible they were doubtful about the copy you sent in. In any case you need to get another certified copy of the marriage cert. Get two because you will need the another one for the NVC process.

This does not constitute legal advice.
