Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, i received RFE letter on 9th/july/2019 suggesting we need DNA test to prove the relationship,, my father a permanent resident petitioning for children under 21 , the problem is that the letter is confusing it doesn't give clear direction on how to do it and where? the petitioner part is clear where he needs to perform the  DNA test and for the beneficiary it doesn't tell you where? is it done in consulate ,embassy from the applicant side, and i live outside the US.

You can do the test anywhere.   You will likely be eligible to interview in UAE since you are a resident,  but siblings will likely have to go back

and another tip dna alone is not enough to make the case strong you should get affidavits  at least from 3 different people if you can get one from a religious teacher like from the local mosque where the teacher can affirm on oath that the children are your fathers children stating the reason also how he knows they are his children also if you can get something from like a family doctor  and one from  a family member as well

yes what happened was we spoke to the lab and the lab said to send them the rfe letter we received. we send it to them and they did the paper work sent it out to the embassy 2 weeks later the children in Pakistan received phone call from embassy to come in for the dna test after they went to the embassy and did the dna test the embassy sent it back here to the lab and my mother in law had done the testing here in the lab after every body was tested the lab waited for the kits from the embassy and then got the results and gave us a copy just for our record we didn't sent to embassy we only sent affidavits to uscis the dna results were sent directly by the lab

im in ny and lucky we were close to the company called dna lab center it was great because dna testing is expensive but for what people pay other place for one person we got 4 people tested for the price of one 3 children and my motherinlaw makes it 4 so if your father is in the tristate he should definitely look in to dna lab center extremely low price
