What to do with K1 docs after getting visa

I'm wondering what did you guys do with the documents returned by the embassy when you picked up ur passport & visa?.. These documents are the one that originally sent by the petitioner to USCIS when filing for K1 (e.g.: phone bills, itineraries, letters, etc).

Should I bring them to the US??... will I need them again at POE and when I file for AOS?..

The docs are quite bulky.. so I thought if I won't need them again, I will just leave them at home :-)

thanks for ur reply & have a wonderful New Year :-)

The instructions on the envelope should tell you to bring them with you to the US and turn them over to the officer when you enter the US. They are then returned to USCIS. They are the original immigration file and will be used by USCIS during your AOS process and retained permanently.

As an aside, this is one of the reasons I advise petitioners to tone down the tonnage of papers they send with the petition. The immigrant is going to need to carry them onto the plane when they come to the US.

excuse me, did u mean that envelope is the brown envelope that must not be opened until POE? If so, I understand that I should bring that brown envelope. The docs (or should I say proofs) that were returned after getting d visa has no envelope or instruction on what I should do with them.

As an aside, this is one of the reasons I advise petitioners to tone down the tonnage of papers they send with the petition. The immigrant is going to need to carry them onto the plane when they come to the US.

That's up to you and your fiance. I thought you were talking about the sealed envelope. Some may be needed and some may not. I would certainly bring back any "originals". If all this is duplicated in your fiance's files at home, anything but orignial official documents can probably be destroyed.

yes, correct! ;-) thanks for clarifying! ;-)

did you bring them along to the US, and were they needed when you arrived at POE and when u apply for AOS?
