IR-5 Parent NVC Case- Petitioner's Marriage Certificate

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All:

I have just submitted my IR-5 Visa application/AOS/Civil documents to NVC for my mom.  However; it was asking for a copy of the petitioner's marriage certificate (mine), but I have selected "Not applicable "as I thought it is not applicable for IR-5 parent visa. But now I have doubts and thinking that I should have include a copy of the marriage certificate. Can anyone please clarify this requirement for IR-5 case? Or is this requirement only for petitioners  who are applying for spouses?  Thanks.

Are you including an I-864A to include your spouse's income as financial support? If so, then the marriage certificate is needed.

No. I am sponsoring myself. Do you know where this specification is cited? I couldn't find any citation anywhere. Thanks.

I would guess it can probably be found in the I-864a instructions but I saw it in the NVC instructions here:

 

https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/the-immigrant-visa-process/step-5-collect-financial-evidence-and-other-supporting-documents.html  under proof of relationship.

 

We did an I-864a so that's why I remembered!

The civil documents at the NVC stage relate to the beneficiary. Petitioner marriage certificate isn’t part of this when the beneficiary is a parent. My son petitioned fur me (IR5) and his marriage certificate was never requested.

I thought the petitioners marriage certificate was used to show the name change if the petitioner was female and the name wouldn’t match the birth certificate.  My wife added hers when applying for her parents.

You need to upload your marriage certificate into your CEAC account if you will be using your spouse income to complement yours in case your own income does not meet the income requirements. If you are not using your spouse income then I don't think your marriage certificate is needed.
