Hello,

When my fiancee entered they stamped and gave her back the I-94 and took the sealed envelope. Will we get the sealed envelope back? It had my tax transcripts and all of financial stuff, an original copy of her birth-certificate and so on. I need that stuff to file AOS. Do I need to get other copies?

Thanks

Those documents are the property of USCIS and will be on file for when she completes the Adjustment of Status. Only copies should have been given to them. The originals would have been shown at the interview.

YOu have any copies of the birth certificate and other documents? Submit them with the AOS, bring copies to your interview and explain the situation, hopefully you'll get the originals back. You're adjusting from a K1 so it's not sure you'll get an interview. Make an info-pass appointment and ask there instead is an option.

The sealed envelop is her alien record and will be on file under her A# with the USCIS. You can get more tax transcripts. The question would be, do you have more certified copies of her birth certificate? Can you get another while she is in the US? It states very clearly in the instructions of all forms for the USCIS that copies of originals are acceptable and if you do include an original the USCIS will keep it even if it is not required. Take this as a life lesson that you never give up an original document. PERIOD. Ask the person to make a copy and note on the copy that they examined the original. I made the bank do that with my Mother's and Father's trusts and they were 76 pages each. I asked the lady what made her so special to get the only original I have with the notorized stamps and all that. So never give up your originals.
