Question regarding organising of evidence for i129f

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi was just wondering if it is ok to put all photo evidence, copies of boarding passes and stamps in the same plastic wallet, or do you have to separate them out?

Thanks in advance

Just staple or tape them to a page and make a color copy to send. Example page: boarding pass to London and back, baggage claim tag, a photo in front of Big Ben, and a receipt in London with your name on it. All piled on a page and photocopied. Makes a nice summary of that trip. Get the passport stamp in there too if you can. Write on the page--JimBob's trip to London July 4-15, 2011. Just an idea. I also used yellow highlighter to point out JimBob's name and the date on each item. Worked for me anyway. Sounds kind of scrapbookish, but it wasn't that neat...just slapped on a page overlapping and crooked.

No plastic wallets. Don't mail anything original except the signed application form and letter of intent.

I agree never send the originals if they lose them then you've lost proof. You want to have those so you can bring them with to an interview if needed. I made photocopies of all the evidence (ticket stubs from one trip on one page), separate photocopies of passport pages, and then created a photo album and added note cards for each picture (when, where, who it was in the pic with us, etc) and just mailed the whole photo album (all digital photos that I had an electronic copy of). Best advice is to make yourself an exact duplicate of what you submit to keep for your records. You'll need this if you get an RFE, and again for the interview. In my case I didn't copy the things that I had originals for but everything else I did. Putting an index page with all enclosures and their meaning is very useful as well. I didn't do that with my original submission (or make a copy, but had electronic versions of most) and then spent hours when I got a RFE reassembling my original submission and trying to figure out what I had exactly for it.
