Filing petitioners birth certificate with I-130

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Never ever send originals of anything with the I-130. You will not get those back. Always send photocopies of everything unless USCIS contacts you specifically asking for an original. Photocopy the front and back of your birth certificate. Do NOT send the original

Our CR1 Journey So Far:

USCIS Stage:

  • Feb 8 2019: Sent package
  • Feb 14 2019: Delivered
  • Feb 21 2019: NOA1 (PD Feb 14, 2019)
  • Assigned to Nebraska Service Center (yay... 🙄)
  • Waiting for: NOA2

Can anyone on here confirm if they did/did not have any problems sending a photocopy of their birth certificates (as proof of citizenship) along with the I-130 package? Does it have to be an original?

Careful study and becoming an A-Student of the I-130 instructions (and all form instructions) will be critical to your ultimate success.  Your question clearly indicates you haven't even looked at those yet.  Do some homework.  You have the answer to THIS question but without doing your homework, you won't know WHAT, you don't know.

I had to send a photocopy (you will not receive originals back) and it was fine. I sent the front and back. Make sure you have everything organized. I'll PM with a specific, updated guide, as I find the guides on here are outdated.
