Putting together my AOS stuff and can't find my NOA's. Not sure what happened to them, but what do I do now ???

File form I-824, application for action on approved petition. In your case, you're requesting a duplicate approval notice.

Try to find your NOA2 approval notice. Filing for a replacement is not cheap. If you cannot find it, and do not want to pay for another, then send in the letter you got from the NVC stating your petition was approved and being sent to the consulate.

I like that first link you provided. This one says you don't need it. Lucky for me I have a USCIS just up the street and a InfoPass appointment is free. So I'm going to make a appointment and ask them.

Side note - I know I had all my NOA's as I included them when turning in one of my packets. I'm wondering if they took it out ???

What packet needed you to include the NOA2? It should have been mailed directly to you after your I-129F was approved to let you know of your approval. A copy of it shouldn't be needed for anything until now, when filing for AOS. Be careful never to give out any of your original documents. They most likely will never be returned to you.

Adjustment of status application requires a copy of the NOA2 for K-1s. I see above that someone at USCIS may have waived the requirement for someone, but I wouldn't be surprised if you got an RFE. The requirement is on page 4 of the I-485 instructions, under 12(B).

Maybe they put it into the visa application stuff, although I don't think it's required? I agree, keep originals of everything received from USCIS and only give out copies. Keep extra copies of everything.

It is a requirement in the instructions. No one is disputing that. Which is why I suggested first that they try and find the NOA2.

It hasn't been just one person to get through AOS without it though. Several people did not have their NOA2 to include and sending in the other documents mentioned throughout those threads (2nd thread is longer and more in depth about it, and there are others threads here on VJ about it too.) worked for all of them.
