Questions about RFE for both of my parents

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I'm new to this forum. I recently filed a petition for my parents on I received a Request for Evidence for both of my parents.
The reason why I got this was when I was about to send the I-130 along with the payment and supporting documents, my son mailed the wrong package that only contains the I-130 which is was going to dispose after I get home.
For sure it's not a valid reason why I forgot to submit those supporting documents.

on the first mail (my father) they required me to submit the following:

1. Submit proof of my US citizenship
2. Submit my birth certificate
3. Submit my parents marriage certificate.

On the second mail (my mother) I am really confused because they ask me to submit all supporting documents but I don't know what to submit because they didn't specify anything. it just says

"You submitted a petition without any supporting evidence to establish familial relationship between you and the beneficiary. Please see the instructions for form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative. these instructions will guide you in submitting the initial evidence required for filling an I-130."

"Unless original documents are specifically required, legible photocopies of original documents may be submitted. In addition, any foreign language document must be accompanied by a full English translation that the translator has certified
as complete and correct, and by the translator's certificate that he or she is competent to translate from the foreign language to English"

So my questions really are

1. Should I only send the mail containing my fathers request for evidence along with supporting documents? Or do I need to send my mother's mail too without any evidence but only with the entire RFE letter?

(I called the uscis about this matter and the lady I spoke to says I only need to submit one mail which is my father's and it's is very confusing because I called again this morning and the gentleman I spoke with told me to just "it's up to you if you just want to send your father's mail")

2. Are they going to use my father's mail with all the supporting documents that's why they didn't ask any evidence for my mom?

3. Should I send a colored photocopy of the supporting documents?

4. Do I need to make a cover letter?

Hi Mark. My daughter did the same thing for me when she sent in the I130 but she hadn't long had a baby so we put it down to baby brain :) You would only need to submit those things that they told you and they would be exactly the same for your mom too. Just to be on the safe side I would send a copy of each document with the ROE for both your mom and your dad. I don't think it matters if the copy is colour or black and white. My daughter just sent all the documents with the ROE and no cover letter. :thumbs:

Whatever you submit for your father, you also submit for your mom. They have separate i130 so each person must have a separate RFE response too.

Cover letter is optional. Black and white or colored copy doesn't matter as long as the photocopy is clear and readable.
