  1. Updating, today, Nov 30, status went back to "Administrative Processing". If anyone has any insight on the inner workings of the visa printing process/workflow of a passport inside a consulate, please let us know! I was especially curious because, in the "refused" visa whatsapp group I belong to, the "ready" status is very rare. does that mean anything specific, when people reported it in the past?
  2. My friend needs assistance, Rio consulate (Brazilian citizen residing in Canada, visiting Brazil) (Medical exam September 21 2021, doctor had to email results to the consulate, emailed oct 26th 2021) Interview November 3 2021 - refused because the consulate cannot receive attachments larger than 5mb, doctor resent it on the same day in a smaller version. Consulate confirmed receipt of medical on November 23) Nov 24 - Administrative Processing Nov 29 - Ready Nov 29 - Refused My friend has never been to any MENA country, no immigration proceedings, no overstay, etc. Consular Officer said everything looked good and the consulate would only have to sort out the medical file. My friend emailed them asking if they need anything elsehas anybody seen it going back to READY? Thank you!
  3. CR1 Fees - July 2nd DS260 - July 9 All Required Docs - July 20 (that's what counted, when their "combo" was complete) Additional Document - Sept 9 In fact, I thought that the best case scenario would be if they reviewed my July 20 documents, and then ignored my additional document until this new submission was reviewed, but they even reviewed and accepted the Sept 9 document based on my July 20 date.
  4. Hi, for information purposes, I have been DQ'd based on the initial submission date, not on my most recent submission date. Many mods and people will advise that what counts for DQ is the "date you submitted your last document", however, other people will share their first hand experiences that they got DQ'd based on their initial submission date. This experience may vary, and here's why I think that is: From my experience and from the vague language on official emails and websites, NVC puts you "in line" for review once they receive the combo FEES + ALL REQUIRED DOCS + DS260. If, after you've already done all these, you upload and submit an additional document, under "additional documents", it is likely that your place "in line" won't change. and that was my experience. Which is different than missing one required doc for weeks... and then uploading it days/weeks later. That would be the first date that NVC had all "required docs", so I can see why some people can interpret that as "last submission resets your review clock".
  5. Thanks for your reply. Turns out I uploaded an unnecessary additional document (no W2s required if you're filing I-864EZ and taxes were not filed jointly). Since it is an unnecessary document, I wonder if that is the only document that goes to the back of the line, while the original submission remains with the July 20 date. If that is the case, they'd have everything they need to DQ me off of the initial date. The police certificate being absolutely required, I don't know how the CEAC "submit documents" button worked without that essential file. I did see some people writing a letter to NVC saying that they could not get their police certificates due to Covid Shutdowns and that they'd take it to the interview, and got DQ'd.
  6. Appreciate your help! We may or may not have uploaded an incomplete document on July 20 (tax return without W2s, and we can't view the uploaded document), so we uploaded the W2s as Additional Documents under the Petitioner, and submitted that one too, today (Sept 9) just in case. Our case still wouldn't be under review even with the July 20 submission date, and we would like to know if this one additional document would place us at the back of the line again, delaying our application, or if what counts is the date of the initial submission of DS260+Initial Documents? We intend to do the same with the tax transcript (tax for last year was JUST processed now), can we upload it as additional document under the petitioner? Additionally, our child was born after we initially submitted the documents to CEAC, should we upload the birth certificate to the CEAC as well? Thank you,
  7. "ADDITIONAL EVIDENCE NEEDED U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has reviewed your Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative and supporting evidence. You submitted a copy of your marriage certificate and divorce decrees, which indicate that the marriage certificate and divorce decrees were registered from 1st Notary Public and Protest of Letters and Titles Office of Americana, District of Americana, State of Sao Paulo, Joao Batista De Sousa Notary. According to information currently available to USCIS, marriages and divorce such as yours appear to be in conflict with the laws of the country of Federative Republic of Brazil. In order for the legal termination of a marriage to be considered valid for immigration purposes, it must have been registered with a civil authority. Therefore, please submit the following: • Submit proof of the legal termination of the marriage(s) of (BENEFICIARY) and (BENEFICIARY'S EX WIFE), such proof would normally be a final (absolute) divorce decree, death certificate, annulment, etc. The document must include the Divorce Sentence (Certidão de Sentença or Sentença de Divórcio) from a court. • Submit a photocopy of the original marriage certificate for the marriage of (USC PETITIONER, MARRIED NAME) and (BENEFICIARY). The document must include the Marriage Certificate (Certidão de Casamento). Please note: The Department of State's Foreign Affairs Manual (FAM) indicates that primary documents are generally available in Brazil, from Civil Registry (Cartório de Registro Civil das Pessoas Naturais)."
  8. Certidão de Divórcio, it was obtained from the Notary that enacted it. At the Cartório de Registro de Pessoas Naturais online. Washington State. We'll double check tomorrow, but we have the State document with handwritten signatures and County Seal, clearly staying "Certificate of Marriage". I have also updated the Original Post with the exact wording of the RFE. THANK YOU FOR THE REPLIES!
  9. Thanks for your reply, I'm currently in Canada. RFE Wording: "ADDITIONAL EVIDENCE NEEDED U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has reviewed your Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative and supporting evidence.

We have already sent doc#2, unless they mean a Brazilian marriage certificate with my USC wife, (they translated the document name in the end) which we have absolutely never had, we got married in the US. As for doc#1, their own website says my initially sent document is good, I will provide the print screen below.
  10. CR-1 - USCIS has issued us a RFE.TheRFE states that my previous marriage and respective divorce were processed at the same Notary abroad (they weren't) The RFE Requests a "Sentence of Divorce" from a court (what I provided was "Certificate of Divorce" from a Notary, which is also eligible document as per travel.state.gov). Notary Certificates of Divorce are definitive proof of Divorce as per Federal Law 11.441 of April 4th 2007 in Brazil (divorce was in 2018). Just to be safe, we went online and got the "marriage certificate annotated to prove divorce" (which is also good as per travel.state.gov). RFE also requests an original of my current marriage certificate (which I provided, I was married in the US, Certificate is in English) with my current (USC) wife, and they add the translated name of the document, so it seems that they would like me to send a (nonexistent) Brazilian Marriage certificate? We only have the US one, and have never even been to Brazil since we got married. Can someone assist? Thanks!
