As a legal permanent resident (LPR) I filed a petition for my wife under F2A category during the month of August - September 2013. We just received a Request for Evidence (RFE) asking for us to "Submit evidence to established that the petitioner on the Form I-130 is a United States citizen". And evidence can include birth certificate etc.
I don't know why USCIS is asking for that since in the application, petition specifically indicated that the he is a Green Card Holder adding copies of green card (front and back) to the application packet. We wanted to reply with copies of petitioners birth certificate and photocopied green card, but a professional advice will go a long way to make sure we aren't confused about what they asking for.Please advice me
Make sure you originally filled out the I-130 correctly, then resend again the proof of your LPR status, with a cover letter explaining the confusion.
