I joined visajourney thinking I would use it as a supplement to my own research and in conjuction with the use of a lawyer. Here I am now about to submit adn I totally learned everything worth knowing about the process from this site and everyones help here. Oh and no lawyer either!

Some things I should mention before the advice comes in. I saw a post just yesterday that some people may have had issues with RFE about fiances birth-certificate if she is applying from a third country not where she was born... I was like "bingo" thats my situation so I am now including a copy of her birth-cert. Thanks for that one.

I am not worried about evidence.. we met in one country.. with evidence.. and we have been in her country and the U.S. all with passport stamps, tickets and pictures.

My biggest concern is that I am sending the petition from Israel and when everything starts to happen in 5-6 months (hopefully), I will be back in the U.S. I put my addresss as if I was in the U.S now though so that the NOA1 will be sent there. That cool?

Now I am seeing just how big this packet gets too... 50 pages! and I have to make 2 more duplicates wow. Great thing that I am in a country that charges 25cents a copy.

At this stage the only thing that needs to be translated is her birth-cert and I just want to be clear that she can translate it herself right? Just add the letter that says she is fluent in both languages and that it is an accurate translation.

So Any last minute advice I would appreciate

Who is at the US address you have listed? If there are any RFEs or other correspondence fromthe USCIS or NVC, they will go to this address. Just something of which to be aware.

I thought all translations had to be done by someone 'officially' certified to perform document translations, though this is just my impression and is by no way the final word on the subject. Hopefully other VJ members will chime in on this issue.

Welcome, and good luck on your journey!

Translations need to be done by a person who is qualified according to the USCIS standard. If the benneficiary or the petitioner meet the qualifications then so be it....

I translated for my friend, from Spanish to English, all documents in his application that needed to be translated. His K1 had no problem being approved. :D

USCIS translation requirements are pretty lax. Depending on the Consulate, expectations may differ on translations required later. So it is wise to ask about that in the appropriate regional VJ forum or to the Consulate directly. For instance for Guangzhou, an official government translation is required, regardless of what may have passed muster with USCIS.
