30 Sep I-130 Petition Approved for Spouse of US Citizen Residing Overseas Following USCIS Request for Evidence; Consular Processing Successfully Completed
Getson and Schatz, P.C. provided representation in the process of a United States Citizen sponsoring her husband for an immigrant visa through consular processing as her husband lived overseas. The marriage between our client and her husband took place in the husband’s home country. We prepared and filed Form I-130 Petition for Alien Relative and United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) then sent a Request For Evidence (RFE) requesting additional evidence regarding their relationship. In response to the RFE, we submitted a detailed evidence package to establish the bona fides of the marriage between our client and her spouse. USCIS approved the I-130 following our response and forwarded the case to the National Visa Center (NVC) to complete the immigrant visa process. We assisted our client in submitting the required NVC documents including the DS-230 Forms, the I-864 Affidavit of Support and all necessary police records. The NVC forwarded case to the US Embassy and our client’s husband was scheduled for an immigrant visa interview. We provided our client’s husband detailed instructions about what he needed to do to prepare for the interview. Following the interview at the US Embassy he was granted an immigrant visa and traveled to the United States to become a permanent resident to live with his wife.
