london embassy forms question

hello friends,

we recently had our i-129f approved (we are getting a fiance k1 visa) and now we have to deal with the embassy in london. i see that we have to fill out these forms (ds-230 part 1, ds-156, ds-157, ds-156k and the iv-15k) then send them to the immigrant visa unit in order to get our interview date.

my question is that on the ds-156k form it says that you need to attach things like the police certificate, birth certificate, evidence of financial support, etc.. to the form. this is confusing to me because on the page with the forms it says that you do not send any documents to the embassy and you need to bring them with you to the interview.

do i need to attach these things to the form and bring them to the interview or do i only need to bring the documents to the interview and the interviewer will attach the documents to the form on that day?

thanks for your help.

The Embassy instructions trump the multi-purpose form instructions.

NEVER trust original documents in the mail if you can help it.

I can assure you that the way London works is that you mail in the forms (just the forms themselves) and you bring the documents (originals + 1 copy) with you by hand to your interview.
