Hi, My interview is in 10 days so I’m going through my files and I have some questions: 1 - Can I bring my baby with me (I’m breastfeeding)? 2 - My husband was born in the States, does he need a birth certificate or can we use his passport? In the request for the interview they ask for his birth cerificate 3 - I’ve already submitted the affidavit of support, but in the letter they ask for my sponsor’s letter from current employer and proof of US citizenship, Is the passport enough proof? My husband is currently unemployed, so what document should we bring? 4 - a certified copy of our marriage document, I have the original (certified) and I sent a copy with the packet, so I need to get an extra certified copy? What is the reason they ask for a certified copy for the marriage document only and not for other documents, like birth certificates? 5 - if I’m currently working, should I bring any proof of employment? 6 - do they ask for copies to keep or can they copy a document in their office if they need to keep more evidence,? thank you so much, is there any checklist that you recommend for the interview? Thank you again!!!!
Hello there fellow community members, I need some help and advice on my I-129F packet that was mailed in on the January 12th, 2017 and delivered on the 17th with missing documents. So my fiancée and I hired an immigration attorney to aid us on obtaining a J-1 visa waiver and the K-1 visa. The J-1 visa waiver was obtained sooner than expected. Took a little over a month to get the waiver approved, so we didn't think we would have any problems in the attorney during the K-1 visa process, but surely enough we are. What happened: My fiancée was just in Brazil with me, she got back on a Tuesday and then on a Wednesday the attorney sent her a draft of our packet as asked to check if all personal information was filled out correctly, so she did just that. But earlier this week I asked to see the draft and noticed that proof of her citizenship was missing, along with form I-94. We immediately called her office to check if she had forgotten to include it in the packet or just didn't put it in the draft, and she did in fact forget to include proof of citizenship, even though my fiancée has already send in all the necessary documents. What the attorney said: Regarding my fiancées proof of her citizenship: She said that it was human error and that the ''office'' had in fact forgot to include proof of her citizenship, that it was a mistake on their behalf, that it doesn't usually happen but it sometimes does, she asked for apologies and so on. Then she informed us that she will be sending in a supplemental packet as soon as we're assigned a case number and that they'll file everything together, that it's common to send in supplemental packets without causing delays in the process. Regarding form I-94: She said it isn't necessary since I have DS-2019s on their with stamped entry dates and what not. But nowhere on the I-129F instructions does it have a note saying that I would not need form I-94 in certain circumstances. But she said that she'll include it in the packet if I would like to so I said yes, of course. But that's the least of our worries because we'd be fine with an RFE asking for this form. What worries us: We're worried that USCIS might deny our petition altogether since we didn't include any proof of her citizenship in the packet. Now imagine us waiting several months just to get a notification that our petition was denied and then have to start a new petition all over again and wait even more? My fiancée and I have been together 4.5 years now and it's not getting any easier on us as time goes by. So it would be heartbreaking to not get this petition approved in the '' normal time frame''. What we'd like to know: - We would like to know if anyone in the community has seem or heard of a similar case in which some important document was not included in the packet, such as proof of citizenship. - Do you guys believe that the attorney's supplementary packet will see its wait to our original packet if its sent in with our case number (as said by the attorney)? - Does the community know if they'll send us an RFE if the lawyers supplementary packet does go into our file? - Will they be understanding and give us a chance to send in proof of her citizenship via a RFE or are we under the risk of getting our petition denied because our lawyer forgot this important document behind? Thanks in advance for any help and sorry for the long post, but we don't know that to do or think and we're afraid of getting our dreams delayed because of some mistake that we would not have made if we took care of the petition ourselves, but we initially thought that it was something out of this world.
