  1. Hello, I have a unique situation. My father brought me to the US as a minor with my stepmother as my bio mother. I'm a US citizen, and I want to petition for my biological mother. Is it possible? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  2. Hello Everyone, I am an Indian citizen and my wife is a US citizen. We both are in the US right now. I am here on L1-B visa. We were looking into doing the adjustment of status by ourselves without the help of a lawyer and came across a small issue. My passport and birth certificate have different places of birth. Passport has the name of the hometown where as the birth certificate has the hospital where I was born as the place of birth. Now, for filing the I-130 and I-485, is birth certificate mandatory for me? If so, is this mismatch an issue? If so, what should I do to get it fixed? Thanks
  3. Hello, we have submitted the CR1 to the USCIS this Sunday on May 29th 2022. We only now noticed that we did not photograph the back of my birth certificate. Because of that I wanted to ask if this could be a reason for the CR1 to be denied for us or to be sent back? Is there any way to submit it now so we don't have to wait 2 months to be potentially denied? Thank you!
  4. We're getting documents together for my wife's visa interview, and it says online that she needs a birth certificate for every family member (including me, her spouse) even if they are not immigrating with her. I, however, and the US citizen petitioner for her case. And the DoS website seems to say you need birth certificates for each family member immigrating. I don't think we can get my birth certificate shipped to her in time for the interview because it's quite soon. Any advice on whether it'll be needed?

However, Nadra certificate has both languages urdu n english. Please guide my interview is near. Thank you
  6. Hi everyone. My wife (USC) and I (the immigrating spouse) are just embarking on our green card journey - actually for the second time (I originally successfully obtained an IR1 some years ago, before formally surrendering it at a US Consulate abroad after leaving the US for work). I was wondering if anyone had any views on a query concerning the petitioner’s details in the I-130. My wife’s name at birth was changed when she was young for, basically, aesthetic reasons (e.g. from ‘Sarah Badname’ to ‘Sarah Goodname’). However, her formal US birth certificate appears to have been reissued in the new name, ie we have a certified copy of her birth certificate in the name of ‘Sarah Goodname’. I do not believe we have a copy of a birth certificate using the ‘Sarah Badname’ name. Given all her documents required for demonstrating eligibility as a USC petitioner are in the new name, is it even worth potentially confusing things by referencing her original name that, as far as we can tell, does not appear to be recorded anywhere? I’m afraid I cannot recall what we did when we previously filed our I-130 (ten years ago) on this but I do believe we did we ‘disclose’ it at some point, though I can’t remember if this was at the I-130 stage or later on (the from fields appear to have changed a fair bit since that time). I wonder if this means USCIS has this information somewhere and any inconsistency with our newly-filed petition might lead to an RFE... If anyone has any suggestions, that would be really useful! And, just to add a supplementary question if that’s okay: presumably my A-number (from my old, successful, IR1 visa) as well as the US social security number I received ‘persist’ and are the ones that should be referenced in the relevant place in the I-130 and I-130A, is that correct? Thanks a lot everyone! I’ll start a timeline once we file the I-130; looking at the way things are, I suspect we’ll end up going down the I-129F route to see if: (I) that maybe expedites the I-130 process (which I understand has at least anecdotally happened in some cases; and (ii) we can be one of the small number of people to have a K-3 actually issued by our local US Consulate.
