One thing I would recommend. Do not send a personal check. Much safer to send a postal money order or certified/cashiers check. Just a thought. Might not be necessary but it could takes a long time for a personal check to clear. Just a suggestion.

***moved to Bringing family members of permanent residents to America from IR1/CR1 process and procedures as OP has stated they are a permanent resident and not a USC***

Remember the G-1145 is on top of EVERYTHING including the check. Put the cover letter in the order of the items contained in the package. smile.png Otherwise it looks good.

Oh do you have to include a photocopy of your green card to show your permanent resident status? Don't forget that if so.

Include TWO passport photos each. People get RFEs for this.

(I talked to one attorney once and she said even though they request one photo each, they scan them and they may get stuck to a scanner and get ruined. So... better to include two)

When two people are meant for each other, no time is too long, no distance is too far, no one can ever tear them apart.
