Hi,

My interview is in 10 days so I’m going through my files and I have some questions:

 

1 - Can I bring my baby with me (I’m breastfeeding)?

2 - My husband was born in the States, does he need a birth certificate or can we use his passport? In the request for the interview they ask for his birth cerificate

3 - I’ve already submitted the affidavit of support, but in the letter they ask for my sponsor’s letter from current employer and proof of US citizenship, Is the passport enough proof? My husband is currently unemployed, so what document should we bring?

4 - a certified copy of our marriage document, I have the original (certified) and I sent a copy with the packet, so I need to get an extra certified copy? What is the reason they ask for a certified copy for the marriage document only and not for other documents, like birth certificates?

5 - if I’m currently working, should I bring any proof of employment?

6 - do they ask for copies to keep or can they copy a document in their office if they need to keep more evidence,?

 

thank you so much, is there any checklist that you recommend for the interview? 

 

Thank you again!!!!

1) It is really up to you there is no restriction but since you are breastfeeding, if I was in your shoes I would have brought my baby especially since there might be a wait a wait and there are chances that you wont be called at the exact time of your interview, we had to wait an hour, even though we came early

2) i would bring both if they are easily available

3) yes passport is enough, was your husband unemployed when you sent your package? If not you will need an updated affidavit since things have changed and if you do work, bring recent paycheks and a letter of employment for you showing that you are making enough in the mean time for the household

4) No just the original is fine, the reason for certified copies no clue sorry

5)yes please do

6)I dont recall the IO having a copy machine in his office, I am sure they can make copies of document, but it will simplify everybody's life if you prepapre copies ahead of time and tell the IO to keep them

 

Good luck, I am sure everything will work out well and you will be approved fast.

Congrats on your baby

Thank you! 

So, my husband as my sponsor was unemployed when we filed the docs, he’s actually unemployed. He had a temporary job in between.

I have a second sponsor who’s actually working, do I need to bring the requested letter from her employer? 

 

Thank you 😊

If your husband filled it out, was unemployed and is still unemployed I would just bring a copy of the original affidavit because nothing has changed

Same scenario if you had it filled out by a second sponsor originally when you sent your package, just bring again a copy of what you sent in the beginning along with  a copy of their passport and letter of employment.

 

My pleasure :)

Since you filed in August - not too long ago, most likely the officer will not revisit the I-864. If the NBC adjudicator approved your I-864, then the interviewing officer will just go with it. Still be prepared with documentation, but I doubt they will dig too much into it SINCE they OK'ed what you submitted initially.

If your husband has a US passport, definitely bring it. While his birth certificate should suffice, you are not really a US citizen until the Department of State says that you are, and issues you a passport. It's happened that USCIS questions the authenticity of someone's US Birth Certificate. So if you have it, just bring it with you. 

 

Best,
