For those of you who had your interview, a question:

Hi gang. I have read that when you show up for the interview and have your big giant packet if evidence and paperwork that the consulate immediately removes certain items they want to see. Can someone explain this to me? As in what are they taking?

I ask because I would like to have whatever that stuff is on the very top for ease of use.

Thanks

First thing, they dont remove anything, Your fiance will turn in her Packet 4 documents. Then she will wait to be called up to the window. She will have everything with her the entire time(proof of relation stuff), then they will ask her for various papers as the interview is conducted. As I recall, they asked Han for the phone records first, copy of the first email, then photos. It really depends on the flow of the interview as to what they will ask for. I would keep all the reciepts, phone bills, first 10 emails and photos on the top of the pile. The best thing to do is put everything in a folder with tabs and indexing.

Excellent questions Matt. I myself was wondering the same thing. I agree with your want to organize everything the most efficient way for the interview. Then my/your fiancee isn't having to dig in various parts of the evidence pile to find different bits of information.

I'm looking forward to the answers to your questions!

OK, but when do they take the I-134 stuff? Is that turned in with the packet 4 documents when she arrives?

Ok here is how it went with Han,

She gave the I-134 and supporting bank papers with the packet 4 documents. They do not ask for the birth certificates when giving the Packet 4. However, they will ask to see it during the interview, so this is something to keep up close and handy.

In regards to handing in the I-134 with packet 4, will the I-134 for the co-sponsor as well as the petitioner be given at the same time?
