Recommended Posts

I have a few questions

1. I, the petitioner lost my birth certificate during a move and got a certified original is a photocopy of that going to be okay? or do i need to send in all pages of my passport

2. I seen some videos on youtube that I was suppose to sign an date every page of the document in the packet? Does that include absolutely all pages of the i-129f and evidence of meeting ect

3. We put everything in a collage and printed it on regular paper,on the vj k1 visa guide it says that i need to insert about 5 photos date and signed in the back and put into a ziplock? Do I need to print photos on photo paper aswell or is the collage good enough?

4. We set the margin of all the documents to 1cm all four sides and heard that they holepunch ontop of all the documents so will that be a problem? Do i need to reprint everything out leaving a bigger margin ontop?

5. Do I need to send her my certified original birth certificate before she attends the interview?

Thanks.

I have a few questions - I’m a beneficiary, not a petitioner, but will try to answer as best I can, based on what I’ve read on here and what appears logical to me 🙂. Sure an experienced petitioner will chime in to clarify though 🙂.

1. I, the petitioner lost my birth certificate during a move and got a certified original is a photocopy of that going to be okay? or do i need to send in all pages of my passport - I can’t see why a certified copy of the original birth certificate wouldn’t be fine - it’s an official document, designed to replace a lost original. My fiancé sent a certified copy, that he ordered from the office that his original came from when he was born - we’re not due for our NOA2 until April, but don’t envision any problems due to his birth certificate.

2. I seen some videos on youtube that I was suppose to sign an date every page of the document in the packet? Does that include absolutely all pages of the i-129f and evidence of meeting ect - just photos. The I-129F has a section where you sign and date it, so you certainly don’t need to sign and date that...anything like a divorce decree, birth certificate, again, has the relevant date on on it (the date you were born, etc) - and anything like hotel receipts, flights etc also have the dates on them. 

3. We put everything in a collage and printed it on regular paper,on the vj k1 visa guide it says that i need to insert about 5 photos date and signed in the back and put into a ziplock? Do I need to print photos on photo paper aswell or is the collage good enough? We printed the photos on regular A4 paper, 3 to a page, 5-6 photos in total - because we did this using Microsoft Word, we were then able to type the date, location and names of those shown, above each photo. I’ve read that a lot of people on here have done it like that, which was why we did the same. 

4. We set the margin of all the documents to 1cm all four sides and heard that they holepunch ontop of all the documents so will that be a problem? Do i need to reprint everything out leaving a bigger margin ontop? No idea here - I mean, 1cm is a much smaller than average margin (we just went with the one that Word sets automatically), so if you could easily change it to be a bit bigger, might be worthwhile- however, not certain that they specify a particular required margin, so you might be fine.

5. Do I need to send her my certified original birth certificate before she attends the interview? No - the only document of yours that your fiancé needs to take to the interview is the completed affidavit of support, and accompanying evidence, such as payslips, tax summary, - she will need to take her own documents (such as birth certificate) to the interview.

Thanks.
