Question about USCIS

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Does USCIS send our package to the embassy that will do the meeting? Because I was told they didn't send the things we have sent them.

I kind of included a picture of my fiancee and me dressed up in fancy clothes. We were attending a wedding. However, while attending the wedding, I went up to the front with her and got engaged in front of 50 people. The pastor has issued me an engagement certificate.

The problem is, I don't want the embassy to be thinking we got married. I have heard they will deny you for looking like you're married. I am really hoping the USCIS doesn't send things I have sent them to the embassy in the Philippines. :( :( :(

I told my fiancee to get a paper stating she is still single and not married.

Here's the picture:

Everything you send to USCIS goes to the embassy. It is your file and travels with you until the end. I believe everything you send in is actually scanned into a database by the lockbox facility. I don't believe they keep the files at the embassy after the interview. But I do know for sure that pics and stuff that you send to USCIS goes to the embassy.

Alright thank you. I guess I must pray and hope they won't deny my fiancee and me.

Yes, good luck but you said you have an engagement certificate. I would think that would prove you did not marry. Does the Philippines have the certificates saying someone is free to marry? I know some countries do and they call them different things. Maybe also she can get a letter from the pastor that it was just an official engagement custom. Just go armed with any kind of evidence that shows it was not marriage. I think it is different when people are dressed in traditional wedding stuff and when it looks like a wedding. I don't know what weddings look like there but that isn't what I would think a wedding would look like. Just make sure your fiancee knows to stress the fact if she is asked it was just an official way to seal your engagement. I think you will be fine. Good luck.

There's nothing wrong with having a party of some sort for the two of you. The picture doesn't look like a wedding to me. We had an engagement party and we had suits and flower girls plus sponsors but no one got married. I wasn't asked about it but I was prepared just in case the question came up. Besides, she will have to bring a CeNoMar with her. It's a certificate of no marriage which your fiance has to get from the Philippines NSO. It needs to be a certified copy.

Alright, I will ensure she gets the CeNoMar.

I feel better knowing that you have already done the same.

@USAmooore, I do have an engagement certificate and will be sending that to her if of course I get NOA2.

Currently just got RFE for something...

Thank you guys for replying. ;)

Everything in the I-129F petition package you sent to USCIS will eventually be sent to USEM in the Philippines... everything.

A CENOMAR (certificate of NO marriage from PSA) is one of the required documents for the visa processing.
