i have an immigration question. i have filled out an n-600 form for my daughter and submitted all the paperwork and evidence. i have received a request for evidence - the fs240 report of birth abroad. i do not have this document since i never reported the birth abroad at the us embassy. my son was naturalized last year without this document and without issue. i called immigration and was told to contact a lawyer. is the request a valid one? can i write a letter to the field office in the enclosed envelope explaining i do not have one and that it isn't required in the form instructions and that my son was naturalized with the same paperwork last year? there is a 30 day deadline which i do not want to miss or her application will be denied, i will lose my money and have to start over
