Supporting (civil) documents for parents

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

I'm a US citizen and am in the process of sponsoring my parents to immigrate to the US. We have filed the electronic visa application form (DS-260) and am in the process of collecting/filing civil documents. My questions are:

1) Do I need to send original civil documents (birth certificate, marriage certificate, etc) or can I just sent photo copies of them? Or do I need to send both?

2) Do I need to send original certificate of accurate translation document or a photo copy for each translated document?

3) Can I send both my father's and mother's documents together in one envelope or do I need to send them separately?

If anyone has experience with these, I'd appreciate any input.

Thanks all!

NVC has now removed the condition of original documents recently. you can therefore send only photocopies and take the originals with you at the time of interview. make two separate sets of documents for each of your parent and put them in separate envelops . write case number and name on the envelopes and mail both the envelops together by putting them in one big envelop.

I have a question, after I did the ds260 I have to pay the affidavit of support for my parents. I went online today to pay. I logged in to pay my dad's and then after I did that I logged in to pay my mom's. when it logged me in it gave me that the fee is processing!! how can that be? is it only one affidavit fee for both parents???

What is the difference between the I-130 and DS260?

I-130 - is the form you filed to petition your relative. This form is the one you sent to USCIS.

DS-260 - is the online application you need to fill out once your I-130 petition has been approved and sent to NVC. NVC will send you a letter with your NVC case number which you will need to fill out the DS-260.
