AOS together with IV Supporting documents

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Yes use the same barcoded cover sheet you got from the aos for the iv documents .

Thanks for the reply, don't they require that an IV payment receipt or DS-260 submission receipt be on top of the IV supporting documents? shown that I paid the bill, just like the AOS cover sheet, - I don't want to send the supporting documents and later on they will say where is the payment receipt that supposed to be attached to the IV package, does it make sense? I don't know. please advise.

Also can I make 2 separate packages with 2 separate barcoded cover sheet (of course make a copy of it) for each IV and AOS - and send them all together., or that would be confusing?

Thank you.

Lol don't worry ask anything it's fine and when you pay the iv fee it's going to give you the same bar code sheet so don't worry about it that's why you can go ahead and print it out twice and use it for both its no different because that barcode is for ur case so it has to be exactly the same make sense ? Myself and many others have done it this way to shorten the waiting time because the iv fee and ds-260 will be able to be completed while we wait for our documents to be reviewed . And yes that's exactly how you can mail them in print the cover sheet twice put one on the aos packet in one smaller envelope and then again for the iv documents in another then you can deal both up and put them in a big one together that's exactly how they want it . Good luck .

Can I ask where it specifies that two separate packages with two separate cover sheets are required?

The cover sheet recently has a checklist for all documents, both AOS and IV, listed on it and the instructions specifically say mail as one package. I assumed that the days of separating the packages were behind us and that all we are required to do is submit all items in one package - placed in the order as specified by the cover sheet. Is this not the case?

One thing I would recommend, from others recommendations, is that every item you send them is marked with your case number - making it easier for them to reunite lost papers if/when that happens!!!

one envelope for all yes your correct, then two inside one with the aos documents one with the iv documents they recommend just for organization purposes no other reason is what they'll tell you, and each one should have a bar coded cover sheet because people will choose to send them seperatly/ and or things get misplaced like you mentioned it happens though they tell you not to do it seperatly because it will slow you down but that's just the way it's been .
