How to prep for I-130 appoval

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm currently awaiting the approval of my I-130 petition for my husband and I'm curious what others have done to prepare for the next step in the process. I'd like to get everything that I can together before being approved so that I can submit any requested documents with little delay. Any incite would be helpful.

I have already obtained tax transcripts for the last 4 years and still have a copy of my actual return from 2014. Also, I'm being intentional with correspondence to my husband so we can include additional information of an ongoing relationship.

Well the main evidence is facetime. Nothing tops that. They could really careless about chats and such anyone can say ad manufacture that. You saying being deliberate says that. See why its not really that solid of evidence of a bonafide relationship.

How many time have you been to see him and for how long? Do you plan to be there for interview or planning a visit before interview.

I probably won't be able to visit during this whole process (because of work), but I will attempt to go for the interview. We dated and lived near each other in South Africa for 8 months prior to being married though.
