Los Angeles, CA asked in Immigration Law for Wisconsin

Q: How necessary is submitting school, religious, DNA, and census records in the last section of the I-130 (filing online)?

Also, is this for me, the petitioner, or is this for the beneficiary? The instructions on the online form aren't very clear. I keep getting error messages saying, "You should provide evidence. If you do not provide evidence, your petition processing may be delayed."

My wife isn't religious. I was Baptized, but never got any kind of certificate. Do I need to include my or my wife's degrees? What if I don't have census records?

A: We tend to recommend filing paper submissions only retaining a copy in the file for housekeeping and accountability reasons. But even generally we do not include only required submissions that do not confuse the processing officer.
