I actually used this as my template for the cover letter and for the assembly of the package since it was very specific... I altered specific to our case (different visa, different documents etc)

My wife and I are about to file her (as petitioner) I-130 and my (as beneficiary) I-485. This is the cover letter I plan to include, listing package contents. I would appreciate comments, even if they're just to say it looks fantastic (I can dream!).
