RFE for Petitioning Parents

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: IR-1/CR-1 Visa Country: Nepal

Hi All,

I filed I-130 for my parents mid this year and got RFE hard copy today. RFE says:

You submitted what appears to be the English translation of birth certificate for <my name>. You must submit a photocopy of the original foreign language birth certificate for Ishor Dhakal AND a new full English translation of that document. This must be a complete translation of the original document in its entirety. Extract or summary translations of the original document are not acceptable. The translator must certify that the translation is in complete and accurate, and that he or she is competent to translate from the foreign language to English.

I submitted following documents for filing petition for my parents.

1. Separate I-130 form for my mom and dad.

2.Photocopy of certificate for of my Parents ( Written in English Language) .

3.Photocopy of English Translated birth certificate of mine.

While submitting N-400 for myself and I-130 for my wife, I have used same photocopy of my birth certificate and I never got any RFEs. I don't know why they are not accepting my document and requesting another one with my original birth certificate. Also I have lost my original birth certificate written in my native language and the only one I have is the English translated birth certificate. Do you think creating a new birth certifcate from the record with be an issue?

Also in Nepal, Notary public does translation from Nepali to English. I dont know how to assure USCIS that they are competent to do translation.

Any thoughts or comments in this will be highly appreciated.

Thank you
