Attachment

Since the birth certificate you have submitted to establish your relationship to the beneficiary was not executed at the time the event allegedly occurred, the evidence has insufficient reliability and weight, alone, upon which to grant a visa petition. Therefore, you must supply the additional documentary evidence noted below. 

Please submit the oldest available evidence which establishes the birth and parentage of Jadav Smita. This evidence may include, but is not limited to:

  1. Hospital birth records which name child and both parents.

  2. Medical records which name child and both parents.

  3. School records which name child and both parents.

  4. Census records which name child and both parents.

  5. Church records in the form of a certificate under the seal of the church where the baptism, dedication, presentation, or comparable rite occurred within two months after birth, showing the date and place of child’s birth, date of the religious ceremony, and the names of the child’s parents.

  6. Two written statements, sworn to or affirmed by at least two persons who were living at the time and who have personal knowledge of the events you are trying to prove, for example, the date and place of birth, marriage or death, The persons making the statements (affidavits) may be your relatives and need not be citizens of the United States. However, affidavits written by you or the beneficiary(ies) are not acceptable. Each affidavit should contain the following information regarding the persons making the affidavit; his/her full name and address; his/her date and place of birth; his/her relationship to you, if any; full information concerning the event; and complete details concerning how he/she acquired knowledge of the event. These affidavits should address the facts concerning her birth.

***If any document is not in English it must be submitted along with a certified English translation. The translator must certify that he/she is competent to perform the translation and that the translation is complete and accurate.
