Hi,

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?

thanks

I haven't been through this but the answer is pretty straightforward. Send a
photocopy (doesn't need to be notarized) with the I-130 application to the embassy.

We went through the very same process (between May & Sept 2001) and we simply photocopied the information page of the passport and the indefinite to remain stamp.

Its a simple process really if you carefully read exactly what they want from you.

We sent a photocopy of the IND letter granting LTR. The passport stamp isn't really sufficient, as it could belong to anyone.
