Fiancé Letter of Intent – Sponsor
Sponsors, please printout the attached Fiancé Letter of Intent. This, is the last of your paper work.
All you need to do, is print one page of this and sign your name on the bottom line.
Next you will need to include the following additional items:
US Birth Certificate – Please provide a photo copy front and back if there is any information on the back?
- What to do if you do not have a U.S. birth certificate?
- You must bake colored photocopies of your entire U.S. Passport.
- If you are naturalized do not make photocpies of your naturalization certificate as it is illegal.
US Passport pages – All petitioners must provide, photocopies in colour of your U.S. passport biographic page & the visa pages that have your arrival/departure stamps.
Divorce decree – If Applicable? Sponsors that have one or more previous marriage will be required to include certified divorce decrees? It is highly recommended, that if your divorce decrees are several years old, or in bad shape, that you get ahold of the court house that has record of those and either go in person or online to contact them to have a new updated version sent to you? USCIS is often times rejecting old divorce decrees. (photocopies only).
- Death Cetificates should be included also if applicable? (photocopies only).
- Annulment records if this applies to you? (photocopies only).
Police records – If Applicable? If a sponsor has any criminal records, he or she should consult with your coach about what types of crimes you have committed and decide whether or not those will be needed in the petition or not?
Passport style photos – You need to go have (2) each 2×2 passport style photos made of the sponsor.
