I am trying to see if anyone else has been through a similar situation.

I am applying for a IR-2 for my Step Daughter - all conditions are met - have been married to mom and known daughter for over 10 years. Biological father approves, is still under 18 etc.

We are at the document stage of CEAC - we uploaded all documents and after a few confusions (w2 instead of tax transcript) we got all submitted documents accepted. HOWEVER - when they accepted our last document this past week, the marriage certificate of me and the mother, they added a note to the birth certificate of my daughter, which says Invalid document not correct issuing authority. It still says accepted though. At this point EVERYTHING ELSE is done, paid, and accepted we just have not received CC. The Birth certificate is indeed the correct one, from the correct issuing authority, with certified translation, all in a single document less than 2 MB.

Has anyone else experienced this? How was it resolved?

NVC Document Issue
6:00 pm January 17, 2019

We are currently at the NVC stage of a IR2 petition. We received our case number and were allowed to start filling forms, paying fees and uploading supporting document.

In the initial upload, I incorrectly uploaded the short version of birth certificate and they rejected to document with a note it was wrong type.

I uploaded the correct long form birth certificate, and they again rejected it with the exact same message. The translation company cut the page out with an illegible stamp on the back, and thinking this may have been the case, reuploaded with the stamp.

They accepted the document and sent a NEW request to send a copy of our marriage certificate.

We uploaded the marriage certificate, and just now, about two weeks later, they accepted the mariage certificate and added a new message to the case saying that the birth certificate which has been marked as accepted in the CEAC portal, is not the correct document as it is not issued by the correct issuing authority.

The travel.state.gov page says for Mozambican Birth Certificates they should be:


Birth Certificates

Available. Birth Certificate (Certidao Narrativa Completa de Nascimento) is issued by Conservatoria dos Registos of city of birth. There may be a fee for this service."

The last line of the document, which is the "Certidao Narrativa Completa de Nasciment" is written I, ......... , technician of conservatory of the registry, on this day.... in the Conservatory of registries of (name of town of birth) yadda yadda yadda

I think NVC is mistaken, and I do believe I have provided the correct document - how do I proceed?

Is this enough reason for I-130 expedite?

I am currently waiting for approval of my step-daughters I-130 which was submitted in March. In the last month some things have happened where she lived which has made her feel her life is in danger. The financial situation in Mozambique has been on a steady decline after years of growth. This is causing more and more people to leave business and enter crime. In her neighborhood signs started appearing with the names of young women from the town stating they were going to be targeted. Everyone passed it off as neighborhood boys being boys and didnt think much of it. One of the girls whos names had been posted, who lives across the street from my step daughter, had her house broken into during the night a few weeks back and was raped by multiple men till the point she expired. The signs kept appearing and last week a young girl who lives further down the street had her house broken into at night and she was also raped by multiple men.

The police are doing nothing and the town is itching to lynch / give a tire necklace to whoever they decide is responsible.

She is staying with my sister in law on the weekends but it is too far for her to go to school from there during the week. We have video from the local news station discussing the attacks and locating them in the neighborhood.

My question is would these events warrant an expedite request on the I-130?

expedite request (split topic)

I am wondering if I should try to expedite my step daughters request or if it will just cause delays.

Recently in the neighborhood she lives in there have been signs on street posts with the names of girls saying they would be attacked. No one really took it seriously, but this past week one of her friends and neighbors, whose name had appeared on a pole, was attacked and raped in her home to the point she lost her life. People are moving their daughters out of the town and neighborhood. We moved her to her aunts house and she now has to take a bus over an hour to school and back each day.

any thoughts - my instinct is they will say she has adverted danger by moving with her aunt

Issue with interviewer at Embassy
2:40 pm August 4, 2017

My sister in law and brother in law want to come and visit us in the US. They went for an interview at the embassy and the interviewer was very short with them out of the gate. Asked where are you going? Why are you going? How many children do you have? Your visa has been rejected. On this first interview at no point during the above questions did they pull out any documentation to support their answers which we had coached them to do. We reapplied and explained again how to present documents during the process. They went back and attempted to explain to the interviewer how they have documentation they didnt show last time to support their answers. He apparently became enraged and told them they were rejected again and refused to look at any of the documents.

They have a 2 months off of work and the money for the trip. They want to try again, but I feel like if it is the same interviewer he will see them and just say no. If he is refusing to look at their documents or give them a chance is there anything else which can be done to improve their chances?

The guards in the front and multiple people apparently were making comments about how this particular person is really nasty and negative and rejects almost everybody. Is there a way to request a different person to do the interview?
