They really need to rewrite that letter because we had the hardest time understanding what they wanted. I visited him before we got the letter and so I followed all the guides from here which really helped because I would have been lost if I'd just tried to submit the stuff the letter says.

Here's what we submitted
*Medical Results

* 2 Additional passport photos (I think it was just 2)
*Affidavit of Support - the I-134 and the supporting documents

- My 1040 & W2 from 2013

- Letter from my employer & 2 paystubs

- Letter from my bank & 2 bank statements

*Evidence of ongoing relationship

- My plane tickets from latest visit

- Additional pictures including me with his family: 10 more (included 5 in original petition)

- Whatsapp chat logs - 100+ pages (did not include any in original petition)

- New letter of intent to marry from me

- Letter from pastor about officiating our wedding

- Email chain between landlord and I about adding him to my lease

- Letter from my mom to him about her being excited to meet him

- Hand drawn picture from my niece showing the family with everyone labeled including him

He took extra documents with him and they told him that they didn't need anything more because the CO had everything that he needed to make his decision. They also returned his police certificate with the interview packet but I'm not sure if that was because he also turned in a different police statement pertaining to a time he was detained while they established his identity (Yep, I hate that box that you have to check if you've ever been detained even if you weren't charged. I lost a lot of sleep over that.) So I'm not sure if you NEED that or not.

POE: 11/23/2014; Wedding: 2/14/2015

Thank you for your input!! im waiting for 2 weeks on packet 3 and wanted to get ahead of it. i emailed them several times to get it in my email they never responded back!! Such an horrible service!! Also with the new system do you have to wait back for package 4 for interview or just schedule it urself after u pay the visa at sogebank?
