Send a cover letter. Here's an example. Of course certain things need to be altered. The beneficiary birth certificate is not required but I sent it because I had it.

Petitioner name

Address

City, WA 99336

+1 509 xxx xxxx Email

USCIS Chicago Lockbox Address

Date

I-130 ORIGINAL SUBMISSION

To Whom It May Concern:

Enclosed please find my Form I-130, Petition for Spouse (name) and supporting documents.

Contents include:

- Personal check #xxxx for $xxx.xx filing fee

- Form I-130

- Additional document showing Beneficiary address in Chinese alphabet and name and address of present employer

- Copy of petitioners US Birth certificate

- Photocopy of notarial Birth certificate for Beneficiary

- Photocopy of notarial Marriage Certificate

- G-325A forms for Petitioner and Beneficiary

- Passport type photos for Petitioner and Beneficiary

Copies of documents submitted are either original documents or exact photocopies of unaltered documents and I understand that I may be required to submit original documents to an Immigration or Consular officer at a later date.

Sincerely,

Petitioner full name

It's an "example". My wife is Chinese. It's best to mail in the native language there. If it applies, change it to the appropriate alphabet. If not, delete it.

Some people put "I-130 ORIGINAL SUBMISSION" on the outside of the envelope. Not necessary but may help!

Can't hurt but the lockbox address announces the contents that are supposed to be inside.
