I'm preparing my petition paperwork to bring my Mom, she is widowed and never been in USA before, I need your help to double check all the requirements before submitting the application, her is what I have so far:

- Personal check of $535

- I-30 complete application.

- G-1145 for e-notifications.

- A copy of my naturalization certificate. (Do I have to send the original)

- A copy of my birth certificate along with a certified translation into English. (Do I have to send the original?)

- A copy of my Mom's birth certificate along with a certified translation into English. (Do I have to send the original?)

- 2 passport size photos for me.

 

Please share with me any ideas and let me know if I need to include any further documents.

Are the passport photos needed ? I submitted my petition for my father yesterday and just provided copies and not the original ones.

Hi,

 

We’re on the same boat but it is my widowed dad I’m petitioning who’s never been here in the US. I believe there are documents needed if you’re petitioning a mother or a father. I didn’t send the original ones just the copies of each and I didn’t send out passport photos coz I think that is for spouse visa or maybe later at nvc stage. Attached are the things I submitted. I just added my driver’s license too on top of a copy of my US visa but it is optional.

 

- Personal check $535

- G-1145

- I-130 competed and signed

- Copy of Naturalization cert. (petitioner)

- Copy of Birth cert. (petitioner)

- Copy of US unexpired passport, biographical page (p)

- Copy of driver’s license (p) - optional

- Copy of Marriage cert. (p) - showing my name change

- Copy of Birth cert. ( beneficiary )

- Copy of Marriage cert. ( b)

- Copy of Spouse death cert. (b)

 

Wish us November 2018 filers the best!

Nov 4, 2018: mailed.

Nov 6, 2018: Received by USCIS (priority date)

Has the check been cashed or have you received an official acceptance notice alert (email or text) from USCIS or are you going by the fedex tracking number?
