Copy of petitioner's proof of citizenship (Petitioner) Birth Certificate and Passport Copy

Copy of the Beneficiary birth certificate in English

For proof of petitioner's citizenship, only need a copy of birth certificate OR copy of all passport pages; copies of both are not necessary.

Copy of the beneficiary's birth certificate is not needed at this stage. It will be needed when the file arrives at the NVC.

Commenting on these items.

Copy of Marriage Certificate

None of these are about bona fide marriage. With the exception of the Beneficiary birth certificate that is not needed at this stage, each of these items are required items that should appear in the main list with the forms. Unless it is the petitioner's first marriage, there should be a divorce decree or death certificate for the petitioner too.

I think you have more than enough :) I only sent our marriage certificate, 2 affidavits, statement from insurance company that we have a mutual policy, and a statement from the bank showing co-mingling of financial resources. I don't think you'll need pictures and email correspondence until the interview. My husband and I have been married for 4 years and together for 10 years so I didn't see the point in including additional evidence since it wasn't asked for. However, your situation is probably different and I guess extra evidence won't hurt since you already have everything.

I sent my I-130 to the Chicago Lockbox via express mail from Finland, I recommend that route since it is cheap, safe and you get a tracking number. I didn't see the point in paying a lot of money for FedEx which would only have saved me 2 days. But I am sure FedEx is cheaper when mailing within the US...

The best of luck to you, I sent my I-130 2 weeks ago and got the Notice of Acceptance today :)
