Hi!

I'm petitioning for my fiance to come over from the Netherlands, and I've got a packet together. I was just wondering if you guys think it's smart for me to have someone put one together for me instead, to make sure it's smooth.

I don't exactly have a ton of cash to spend on having someone prepare the packet for me, but is it smart to do it all on my own?

I just don't want to be missing any information that I'm not aware I should have, or make some stupid mistake that will end up in a rejection.

My packet, as of right now, contains:

As far as forms go:

Form I-129F

Declaration of Meeting (Question 18 Supplement)

Form G-325A for him

Form G-325A for myself

Passport photographs (one for each of us, do I need to include both?)

Letters of mutual intent for both of us

For our proof:

5 photographs of us together in both the USA and the Netherlands

Bank statements using my card in the Netherlands, and using his in the USA.

Plane tickets for all trips

Copies of passport stamps for all trips (Should I copy the photo page of the passport as well as the stamps?)

Flight itineraries

Our Rebtel phone service transcripts

I still have to go to the city to get a copy of my birth certificate, and I still have to print and sign the support affadavit and my cover letter.

Is there ANYTHING else you guys can think of that I should include?

any help is IMMENSELY appreciated. :D

Thanks so much!

Hiya,

If by 'someone else' you mean an immigration lawyer, dont bother. You'll waste a ton of money and I've read horror stories of even the lawyers doing it wrong. All you need to pull this off yourself is the ability to double check what documents you need and it sounds like you've got that under control.

For the initial packet, yes you do send in both passport photos of you and the fiance, and you dont need to send in the affadavit of support. He'll have to show that at the interview stage. For your passport, just the entry stamps is fine.

Hope that helps
