Need help. I have received a 'Request for Further Evidence'
I have received a 'Request for Further Evidence' from the USCIS about my sibling's pending i130 application. USCIS says birth certificate was registered many years after birth, which is a very common practice in Bangladesh. There is no other secondary evidence such hospital record as we were all born at home. Until recently, registering a birth in Bangladesh was not a legal requirement. So we all collected/registered our birth certificates at the time of applying the i130 in 2013. At that time, we also enclosed two affidavits confirming birth date and parents name. However, USCIS seems to have missed those affidavits. I still have the original affidavits dated from 2013. Shall I send them again? We can get letters from our school but these would be dated now as the schools back in the days did not keep any records. We can get certificates from Mosques Imam (Religious priest for Muslims) but then again these will be dated now. UCSIC is giving emphasise on old documents dated within the time time of birth. This is not possible as we were born 30 years back and record keeping was not practised those days. Please help!… read more
