Question before sending application?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! My mother and I are applying for our green cards through my stepdad who is a US citizen. We had a person to fill out our forms and he sent the papers back yesterday. He only included one set of copies of evidence for the entire thing. Is that okay? For example, I-485 and I-130 both request for birth certificate copies. Does only one copy of that will be enough or do I have to add more copies? I know that it is a silly question, but we don't want any delays with USCIS.

Generally, one set of evidence per person..... Are you Adjusting Status within the USA, or applying for a visa from your home country?

We are in the USA. It's one petition per person. I was just wondering on the aspect of how many copies of the same documents I should include in each petition since both I-130 and I-485 ask for copies of birth certificates... Is only one copy enough?

Thank you!

Who is this person? Is it someone you know? A lawyer? A relative? A complete stranger?

Typically, USCIS lockboxes are pretty good at returning your entire application if something is amiss. If you don't receive the entire package back, it's been accepted and you're good to go. If not, the whole package will be sent back and you can include as many copies as you like.

Just sit back and relax.

He works with taxes and document preparation. I was only concerned because I have read so many posts in here and thought that the way he set up the petitions was a little weird. I think it will be okay because he included all supporting documents needed.

Thank you!!
