Hello,

I am about to send in the petition in for my spouse. My spouse and I have completed all the forms and docoments for the petition. However, I would like to make sure we have all of our ducks in a row before the petition is sent out.

We have completed:

1) I-130

2) G-325a (petitioner)

3) G-325a (beneficiary)

4) G-1145

5) a copy of my birth cirtificate and pass port

6) copies of our marriage cirtificates

7) cirtified translation of marriage cirtificates

8) cover letter

9) passport photos of both of us

10) evidence of a bonafide marriage (pictures, chat logs, skype records, letters, gifts, ect)

Thank you for any help and input before we send in the petition in a few days.

Looks good! But don't forget to include the filing fee :P

And I hope the way you listed everything won't be the order in the package...
