Yes you need it as you have to send a copy with your AOS. I am sure someone else can answer better but I would presume you could email or call USCIS and ask for another copy.

Shouldn't the K-1 visa in her passport be enough proof of approval? I think I read of others who successfully used copy of K-1 visa and I-94 for AOS vs shelling out $300+ for another copy of I-129f Approval notice.

Well, it seems that in some cases there is a way around it: I'd certainly go with the cover letter with the explanation of what happened and included the screenshots of approval - that has to count as something.

This case is not about never receiving the approval it is about them losing it themselves. And how can they have screen shots of the approval if they don't have it. By all mean they could try and send a letter I am just saying that it has to be included in I-485.

FROM Darnell

you might also get some luck with an infopass appointment. they can't reprint it there for you, but they CAN order a reprint for you.
I suggest to try that route, once. Can't say it'll be 100 percent, though

If they "never sent it" then they are STILL going to assume that you lost it, so for all practical purposes, it doesn't matter, the USCIS is going to make the same assumption: YOUR FAULT. So, there shouldn't be much differentiation in the issues, to my mind.
