Does I-130 petition require spouse birth certificate/passport

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, when submitting I-130 for spouse, who entered the US with a F1 VISA, am I required to include a copy of the birth certificate and/or passport, as it suggests on this page, under "Assembling the I-130 Package: Checklist", #7?

The USCIS instruction for I-130 doesn't mention that, so I'm wondering.

Thank you for your help in advance.

Yes, it is required if the petitioner or sponsor of the applicant's green card is a United States citizen. Check column 2 of page 2 in the instruction document. It is under the headline --- "What Documents Do You Need to Show That You Are a U.S. citizen"

Sorry I left out the very important part, "am I required to include a copy of the birth certificate and/or passport of my spouse?"

Hey cli

My husband is the petitioner and just filed for the I-130 petition (CR1 Visa). The I-130 petition didn't require my Birth Certificate. I don't believe the beneficiary's Birth Certificate is needed for anyone filing for this petition.
