I strongly advise you read the K-1 guide that was linked earlier, as well as the I-129F instructions. The petition is not just the I-129F form.

There are a lot of things you must include with your petition.

AOS

Permanent Residency Granted:  07/27/2015;  Green card Received:  08/22/2015

 

ROC

As other members have said, there's a lot more than just the petition that needs to be sent in. Reading the instructions for the I-129F on the USCIS website would be a good place to start. If you send just the petition, your case will quickly be denied.

Forgive me if I forget anything but here is what I know you need for sure:

-Proof of your US Citizenship (copy of both sides of your birth certificate will work for that...I wouldn't send in an original as you may not get it back)

-Both of you need to fill out form G325-a

-Both of you need to write/sign a letter of intent to marry (see example in VJ Example Forms)

-Proof that you have met in person within the last 2 years. Photos are secondary evidence and certainly can't hurt, but also include airline reservations, passport stamps, etc. to prove that you have met

-A passport photo from each of you

Best of luck to you for a timely process!
