  1. Fiance's birth certificate - We had to get and use Age Attestation (born in 1975) Son's birth certificate - Already possessed officially version but did not take to interview because he is not traveling to US in next 2 years so we did not know we still needed to provide.
  2. This is from U.S. Department of State website regarding Birth Certificate. Alternate Documents: For people born prior to 1979 or in some cases prior to 1988, a birth certificate issued by a Local Government Authority or a hospital or a baptismal certificate is acceptable. There is also the National Population Commission Attestation of Birth Certificate issued to people whose birth occurred before 1979 when the National Population Commission issued birth certificate was first introduced as a pilot program. Any of these is acceptable.
  3. Thank you so much for your words of encouragement. This time I may use a service or an attorney!
  4. No, you are not confused...I "sort of" said both. I noticed my fiance's birth year was incorrect and tried to have it correct BEFORE the interview with USCIS...then after interview with Embassy and DOS. ADDITIONALLY, At interview fiance received RFE because we did not know that we needed to provide HIS 5 year old son's birth certificate. I got that he could use Age Attestation from Nigerian filers on this and other sites. Read that if he was born after a certain date he would not be able to obtain an original birth certificate. Yes, we only spent 5 days together because as I explained I only had a week of leave from work. According to him, interviewer never questioned our relationship and did not look at correspondences or pictures.
  5. Thanks! Sorry I meant 1-129F was denied. No reason other than the expiration was given. According to him, the interview went well no additional questions asked or focus on anything. Just given RFE for son's birth certificate, which I did not know was needed since he will not travel here anytime soon (maybe not at all). He was asked for his birth certificate although we provided his Age Attestation which according to my research and what other Nigerians on here said is will suffice. The asked for photos and correspondence again but we had already sent at about 8 pictures and 40 pages of correspondence but I provided more. Also, his passport! His passport could be the issue because when he got ready to pay the interview fee at the bank he could not find his passport..he looked for 3 weeks and then had to apply for a new one. He submitted the new one along with court affidavit and police report about the last one. Our conversation and facetime was plenty but unfortunately because I only had a few days that I could spend off work and away from my pets, I only spent 5 days there. Yes, he proposed then. So, 5 months after we met, he proposed on first time together.
  6. Filed K1 Visa for my Nigerian fiance on 9/20/2016 and everything went smoothly but right before interview I realized that I typed his birth year incorrectly as 1976 but is 1975. I contact the USCIS and told to make appointment and bring copy of any birth certificate and passport. I go in and everything seems fine. 2/9/2016 my fiance has interview and receives RFE and we turn everything in as requested. End of February, I received notice from USCIS that this was incorrect place to correct birth year since it was already sent to Consulate, fix it with Department of State. I make contact and I do as told but several weeks later I am told this incorrect place. I contact Consulate by email and send them information about correction and copies of passport/BC and am just told case is under review. I watch and watch for something to happen but case remains under "Administrative Review" for months. I send emails for status updates and told to wait. Seems exceptionally long so I write again and told case has been sent back to USCIS. Well it takes 4 months or so to reach USCIS. Get update from online telling me to wait for a notice. Wait 60 days and email for status only to be told today THAT OUR VISA VALIDITY EXPIRED PLEASE FILE AGAIN. No reason why! I'm so dazed and confused right because it looks like it was expired by March. Why no contact and explanation? Have not even told my fiance..he has already been talking suicide since the long wait. I don't want to tell him the bad news!!!
