that moment when you have all the concurrent filling I-130 I-485 in an envelope to send but a doubt comes to the mind

Do I have to submit birth certificate or US BIOGRAPHICAL PAGE copies of the US CITIZEN , the petitioner, my husband, with my form I-485?

( I am submitting those in I-130 ( birth certificate, passport copies) for both of us, but do I need to do the same in I-485? Or are just mines enough?

I understand that moment of doubt. It happened to me when I filed my own AOS Packet and now that I filed my mom's. You do not need to include a copy of your husband's birth certificate with the I-485 as long as you have included one with the I-130. As a matter of fact there is no need to include copies of both a passport and birth certificate from the petitioner. Only one or the other is good enough. USCIS just needs to verify that the petitioner is a US Citizen when they process the I-130.

awesome so that means, in the I-485, I do NOT need to include my husband/the US citizen / petitioner birth certificate, passport copies, or G-325A?

So is just in the I-130 that there is need of documentantio for alien-spouse applicant and US citizen petitioner, I-485 only wants G325A and documents of Alien spouse right?

Don't worry too much about the order of the documents in your immigration packet. They will tear it apart and organize it according to their method. Just make sure you include everything that's required. I 2-hole punched everything and I organized all of the documents in one fastener folder. I placed the I-693, pics, and check in separate bags and hole punched the bags. Here's exactly the order in which I organized all the documents.

-G-1145

-Cover letter

-2 pictures of petitioner (in zip bag)

-4 pictures of beneficiary (in a zip bag)

-(1) check for $1490 (in a bag)

-I-485

-I-130

-G325A for petitioner

-Petitioner's U.S. birth certificate (or you can send a copy of U.S. passport bio page)

-Copy of beneficiaries passport bio page and visa page

-Copy of i-94

-G325A for beneficiary

-Beneficiaries birth certificate with translation

-I-765

-(I did not send a I-131 because I was not going to use it, but it's optional)

-I-864 for petitioner

-(If you have a joint sponsor the petitioner would still need to fill out a I-864. You would have to include evidence of joint sponsor's U.S. citizenship or a copy of his/her green card)

-Income tax return from petitioner

-W2 from petitioner

-(3) pay statements from petitioner

-Marriage certificate

-Evidence (copies of Health insurace cards, Disneyland annual pass contract, pictures,ect.)

-Sealed I-693

It doesn't matter if they receive it before or after your visa expires because of the category you fall under. Even if you overstay your visa you can still apply for adjustment of status because you were inspected by an immigration officer when you came into the States and you are an immediate relative of a U.S. citizen. I used Fedex for mine a year ago and for my mom's I used USPS Priority Mail on the 10th of this month. USCIS received my mom's packet on the 13th. I was the same way when I was ready to send my packet. I stressed about every single detail; however, everything workedout for me and everything will workout for you too.
