It is that person's family size plus your husband. Not you, as you are a US citizen.

We have decided to go for DCF asap which Im pretty excited about!  :)
Just wondering if the documents sent in with I-130 need to be certified, I don't see it anywhere on the checklist or the Instructions but thought I read it someplace & best to double check.. thanks to anyone out there!  :)

Lucy, this is from the top right hand column under "SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION"

Very Important -Do not send original documents
with the petition! Photocopies are acceptable. Only
submit the documentation that is required by this
checklist. Do not submit extraneous
documentation, tenancy agreements, photos,
bank/tax statements, etc. Extraneous
documentation will be returned to petitioner. Do
not place documents in plastic protectors or
binders, or labeling each document with a post-it note

Saw it, but thank you anyway, its all sent- even though I had read on a different forum & possibly something outdated that some copies needed to be certified.
Was just double checking, this was about a billion times less info to be sent in than anything Im used to so far & it just seemed almost to simple.

Thanks tho.  :D

Wow - it looks like the procedure has changed quite a bit from when we were last considering moving to the states in 2007 ...

So is it now just a case of submitting the following forms for Dual Nationals (my missus now has British as well as US citizenship)
*I-130
*G-325a (2 copies of biographical info? Does my 4 year old son need a copy as well?)
*Credit card payment form (fee of $485)
*E-petition form
*What is the form for booking the medical and how much does that cost? (I couldn't find it on the Embassy website)

Along with the relevant supporting copies of original documentation (marriage certificate/passports proving residency/nationality  Tax returns for last three years etc)

As we have been married for more than 2 years, is it right then that we would be granted IR1 (unconditional stay) in the US for 10 years? Does that mean as soon as everything is approved, I can start looking for work in the US? How many extra years does it take to secure US citizenship from then?

Any help would be gratefully received ...

:)

The stickied topic near the top of this page is old, as I wrote it out several years ago when I was going through the process. Things change all the time in immigration land, and anyone who has gone through the DCF process recently who wants to work with me on adjusting that timeline, can you just send me a message privately and we'll get some more useful up to date information on there. Thanks. :)

Hi very useful information. I am in Dominican Republic,  and am flat broke. I reached out to the embassy via phone, received a call back, provided her with the 3 numbers she requested actually gave 4, she called me back a time later and stated a friend whom id already spoken to said he would help, yet that was NOT TRUE, as i was speaking with him at the time of her call.
She explained there was nothing further and quickly hung up the phone.
I contacted dos the next day and was referred back to the embassy.
I will go to the embassy tomorrow to speak with someone but in the meantime is there a site where i can apply online for the loan?
I have 53.00 to my name and am not on good terms at all right now with my "friend" shes asked me to leave her place this weekend.
Funny,  when the money is gone the "love" goes as well. 😕
Learning experience for sure!
Any information would be much appreciated! !
Thanks
