Hi everyone, I'm all done getting all my paperwork together for the I-130 application.

I was just wondering what exactly you guys sent in your paperwork inside?

Here is my file:

1. cover letter

2. i-130

3. evidence of citizenship (photocopy of all pages of passport)

4. my g325a + photo in ziplock bag

5. her g325a + photo in ziplock bag

6. marriage ceritificate (copy)

7. translation of marriage certificate + certification by translator

8. evidence of bona fide marriage (two affidavits form our parents, five photographs from our wedding ceremony in a ziploc bag)

The marriage certificate is in another language, should I use a sheet of paper to preface it? I want to use TABS but I don't know if its okay to just stick tabs onto the original documents?

Acco fasteners seem to be overkill, I have everything paper-clipped and a bulldog clip keeping it all together. Should I just send this all bulldog clipped in an envelope? I have it in this, but again it seems like a bit much.

And finally, some of my documents are oversized, but only by an inch or so form the usual 8.5x11 size paper. I was wondering if I should just fold the ends of each document up and fit them in a regular envelope or try to find something that will fit them as they are.

I know I'm being ####### but I can't help be worried about every little detail.

TIA

The guides and the form instructions provide all the information you need on filing. You'll need to provide a certified translation of that foreign language marriage certificate.

I'd use the appropriate sized USPS Priority Mail envelope.
