Hi all I am getting ready to submit everything as soon as the medical is done next week. I have gathered everything that I think I need and I wrote this cover letter.

Can some of the experts on here review my cover letter to see if I missed something or added something incorrectly?

Thank you.

1. I-864 is a subpart of I-485 in most applications i have seen just like I-693, however i guess you could do it this way too. Also C7,C8 are not required IMHO.

2. Just one G1145 is enough for all concurrent filed petitions (I130, I485, I765, I131) Somebody please correct me if i am wrong

3. If you are sending original IRS Transcripts you do not need to send W2's or 1040's

4. Birth Certificates of beneficiary are not required in I-765 or I-131

I found another typo here:

D. I-765 Application for Employment Authorization

1. Cover letter of the contents for I-864

Also, I am not sure about all the supporting documents your are attaching to the I765 or the I131 forms. Too much documents
