Keep Copies of POE Documents!

As we prepare to get another original copy of my fiance's birth certificate and as I wonder what other paperwork we may have lost to the "sealed envelope" handed over at POE I just wanted to remind those who haven't been to their interview yet to make sure they keep an original copy of such important paperwork. I got tired of making copies and didn't know they were going to take my fiance's birth certificate and not give it back. It is my understanding now that they would have accepted a photocopy. So...just another thing to think about as you prepare. Look ahead to what will be needed for AOS and what might be difficult to obtain once your significant other is no longer in their home country.

Great advice. My fiance purchased 2 copies of his Birth Cert from Kingston and kept one for himself and gave in the other. It comes in handy.
