How many pictures should be included for I-130 and I-485 forms ? Guide says 1 for each G-325 but i`ve been reading some ppl were sending more so i am kinda confused

Are you talking about passport size pics mandatory for some of the forms or pictures as proof of bona fide marriage?

We filed everything together.

How in the world did you come up with EIGHT for the Beneficiary!?

I-130:

"A passport-style color photo of yourself and a passport-style color photo of your husband or wife, taken within 30 days of the date of this petition."

I-485:

Point #4. "You must submit two identical photographs of yourself taken within 30 days of the filing of this application."

Where else!?!

Mate i beleive you have to submit 2 photos for each G-325

Not according to the instructions: http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/g-325a.pdf

I was also told you don't have to submit the same documents if sending in the same packet. On the G-325 form, I just said applying in conjunction with form I-130 and I-485.

I'm just going to submit 8 photos just to be safe B-) and throw in another copy of the G-325...I'm on a tight deadline :P
