Thank you Dew Drops for your response. What complications can be anticipated if I send in those documents?

I prepared the package as advised by an immigration software immigration pixie. That software had these items in the list supporting evidence of marriage. So I followed that.

Why do u think the case will become complicated? What might Uscis think?

And can I send the color xerox copies of the original birth certificates and passports etc are allowed and accepted by USCIS?

And are the copies of those certificates have to be notarised?

Thank you for replying... newbie here never filed I 130 before.

There r no complications if u sent all as mentioned but why to show more docs if ur case case can be good by sending just the docs that r required...but if u feel to send the docs as advised by immigration pixie then go for it...

U can send color copies of ur docs...

USCIS accepts just photocopy of documents...I don't know about notorized copies ..,,,so just do some research

Good luck
