Gather all the documents you need to send to the beneficiary, have the beneficiary get all the required documents on their end. Have them and double, triple check all requirements before getting cozy. Once you get NOA2, copy it, add it to your documents, send the documents to them.

What documents should the petitioner send to the beneficiary ? My US husband submitted all our original copies to USCIS , I am wondering whether he is getting them back later or not ?

He'll get back his birth certificate, but copies of everything sent to the USCIS for the petition should have been made to send to the beneficiary so that in case the embassy asks for them, they are there. But other than that, he will need W2 tax returns, 3 months of pay stubs from his work, he will need to fill out a I-134 Affidavit of support, a formal letter from his employment stating his stability, hourly wage or salary, yearly expected income, and his time with the company; a bank statement of deposits made for the last year, and sometimes even health care info.

My fiancée didn't get asks for much of this, but if you get the interviewer who has had a bad day or has much doubt in your case, it's best to have everything you need.

I don't have one made up given I used several guides I discovered here and through google, but Greenbaum's guide is very nicely detailed on everthing you need to do. It is found here http://dennyeyberg.wix.com/filipino-am-visa

Also I found Mrs Presson's guide very useful too, which you can find here http://www.mrspresson.com/
