The guide mentions a bit how to assemble the pack and a checklist.

Whatever you do, provide a covering letter, with the application form, documenting everything you're putting in as supporting evidence.

I printed out my pictures on 8 1/2x11 sized paper so I could get more on one page, and made everything easier to run through a copier before I sent it out. I also annotated the pages with dates when the pictures were taken. It all fit in a big expandable envelope that I got from work.

you should have a cover to list the items and use spacers to seperate each paper like tax transcripts,next banking proof of finances,your driver license her driver license showing the same address,utility bills, loands togather,insurance,keep it neat do not use staples. only paper clips and make another set for your records to keep.

For my husband's ROC packet, I color coded all the documents (ex: financial statements on green paper, travel documents/boarding passes on yellow paper etc.--this might be the teacher in me and my OCD :) ). I had different categories and I included a cover page. We did submit pictures by copying some photos from our computer onto 8x11 paper (like lovelyalex), and we wrote a one line caption for each picture including date the picture was taken.

Good luck to you!

i am planning on using large brown envelopes for each title. all copies of electric and cable bills in one envelope, all bank statements in another envelope and so on. i did the same thing when i file for aos and had no problems. i had marked each envelope and on the cover letter, i had listed what was in each envelope.

We used a 3 ring binder and put our cover letter, form and every photocopy into labeled plastic page sleeves. The binders worked great for our K1 petition and my hubby's AOS too! It keeps everything organized! :D
