Our list of what to bring to the interview was gigantic and it repeated a couple of things. Here's the list:

Bring the Following:

- This interview notice and your government photo ID

- A completed medical exam (unless already submitted)

- A completed I-864 (unless already submitted)

- All documentation establishing your eligibility for Lawful Permanent Residency Status

- Any immigration-related documentation ever issued (EAD, AAP)

- All travel documents used to enter the US (Passports, AAP, I94)

- Birth certificate (with translation)

- Petitioner's Birth certificate

- Marriage Certificate

- Spouse's birth certificate and evidence of lawful permanent residency

- Supporting evidence of relationship

- Original and copy of each supporting document that you submitted with your application. Otherwise, we will keep your originals for our records.

We called USCIS and asked about the supporting documents submitted with our application and she told us we needed every form we ever submitted since the I-129F and each supporting document with the form. BUT, we included the I-864 in our AOS package which, as stated above, means we don't need to bring it. Also, we don't have the employer letters anymore from myself (the petitioner) or the joint sponsor and we don't have extra passport sized photos. Do we need to bring all the extra documentation for each application we ever submitted or is a copy of the forms all that is required? Also, should we bring our 2007 tax returns? It doesn't list it as required, but I've heard some people say to bring it as evidence. Please help.. :unsure:

Hi There

My wife and I had some changes in jobs and salary etc by the time we go to the interview, so we filed out a new I-864 with the updated info. The interviewer took that, and she also asked to look at our tax returns, employment letters again just because there was some confusion over our original amounts (since my wife's income always shows as zero as she used to live in Canada). So I might suggest you take these with you too if possible. If you can't dont lose sleep over it, plenty of people seem to go through interviews without getting asked again for already asked tax info.

Many people have shown up at interviews and found that pieces of there file were missing or filed in the wrong or in a chaotic fashion. So..... taking as much as you might be to your advantage anyway just in case there is something missing. We took a huge bundle of papers each, we both probably looked very strange walking to the federal building!
