Great post!!!! biggrin.gif Thanks for the information so much! Mari used to live with her uncle, but the family started to bully her around after our engagement(wanting money of course) she moved out to get a piece of mind, but I doubt if she gets any mail forwarded to her.

Your post helped calm alot of nerves and answered alot of questions. We aren't worried at all now if she gets the packet or not.

Thanks again! biggrin.gif

Does the birth cretificate I submit as petitioner need to be an origional issued by the state, or can I use a notarized photocopy?

Les, just submit a copy. Usually originals are asked at the interview but for submission, copies will do.

All submissions should be photocopies unless they specifically ask for an original (for K-1 petition, that would just be the I-129f and the I-134)

Medical Exams – A caller explained that the civil surgeon who completed the medical exam used the wrong form and then wanted to charge an indigent refugee to reprocess the paperwork on the correct form. What recourse does an applicant have if this occurs?

USCIS Response: Customers should notify the Director of their local office when they have a complaint about a civil surgeon.

Just a non-notarized one will do? and also just photocopy of divorce papers, no need to be notarized?
