bwelburn is an unknown quantity at this point


Is there any one out there that has been through the I-130 process and spouse visa at the American Embassy in London?

My wife has just received her 'leave to remain' in England She got a stamp in her US passport and a letter stating she now has 'leave to remain'.

The INS at the American Embassy require evidence of this for the I-130 application and state 'photocopies preferred'. My questions are:

What should we send with the I-130 as evidence of her 'leave to reamin' in England. Should we send her passport with the stamp or the letter stating she has 'leave to remain'?

If these are to be photocopies, should they be notarized?

Do not send her passport! A copy of the leave to remain stamp/sticker and probabaly
the page with her photo should suffice. When my wife and I filed I did not have ILR
and had to send other proof of residence in the UK (Leave to remain is not required)
but with ILR you should not need any other proof, in my opinion. If you think other
proof is required you could send copies of bills with her name on them (or both
names). I sent copies of council tax demand notices and one or two other bills.


No. If you attend the interview together there are no documents that need to be
notarised. The I-864 will be signed by a consular officer at the time of the
interview. If she cannot be at the interview I believe the I-864 would have to be
