I am almost ready to file - have lot of papers and lot of information in those papers.

I was thinking of putting post-it notes on lot of papers indicating the information like

entry and exit stamp in the passport etc etc (lot of small and big details). As it turns

out there would be lot of these post-it notes over lot of these papers. So now I am

thinking..would these be annoying? Would they really read what I wrote on those

post-its? Anybody done this? any suggestions.

I did this in my application, especially for the evidence part. I didn't use them as tabs, but put them right on the face of the page to make sure they understand what I am submitting (example of passport stamps, I put who's passport the stamp was from - mine or my husbands's). Good luck.

apgk,

I used small post-it notes, hanging off the bottom of documents, as tabs to indicate what each document was to the clerk who pulls the submission package apart and re-arranges it into the case file.

I don't know whether it helped that person or not, but at least they're quick and easy to remove without damaging the documents.

I used ACCO fasteners at the top and tab separators between the documents to make it easy to find each document. It appeared to work, the petition was approved in about two weeks. Of course that was two years ago when the USCIS operated under different rules but I think it would still help and also keep your petition organized. Good luck :thumbs:

How about a yellow highlighter pen? Just highlight the important parts and ditch the post-its. They know what boarding passes and passports are - so highlight the relevant bits and leave it at that.

I used the acco fastener, had my contents page as well as "title pages," so to speak, for the other sections. Everything was well organized, but other than that I didn't do anything else and it seemed to be just fine. Whatever makes it easiest to browse through. Good luck!

Lots of people do it differently. The USCIS knows what to look for and what things look like. No panicking yet!

I used small yellow post-its on pages that I felt needed an explanation .

I used highlighter to identify pertinent information such as passport stamps, boarding pass date, etc.

I used an explanation letter for things that required more information, such as...I have photocopies of 2 passports and my birth certificate to show Citizenship. (long story)

I used Post-its for small explanations that were not obvious for example, the copy of my birth certificate has smudges all over it. I simply wrote on a post-it that the smudges were on the original certified copy. I placed the note right on the page, not sticking out over the edge.

I separated the sections of my application with page dividers and labelled the tabs on those e.i. Proof of Citizenship, Evidence of Meeting, etc.

I listed the contents on the cover letter (I used the example given on this website)

As someone said before, people do it many ways that are effective. I think the most important thing is that all the necessary information is included in an orderly way.

Good Luck...Stay Cool

I made the evidence section its own sort of cover page that listed in order all of things I had and then wrote a couple of sentences by way of explaination of what the things were. It looked neat, and no fear of it falling off like post-its might.

We used highlighting pen (neon green - it glows in the dark :lol:) to show vital details i.e. names, dates, locations... I think almost everyone here did the same thing... :thumbs:

I used a seperate page to answer 18B. I wrote a short explanation about how we meet and then listed the evedince in clear numbered points.

1. See the following pages for copies of bills, ID cards....showing that we are living at the same address. (I highlighted all relevent info)

2. Passports - Please see the following passport entrance/exit stamps.... (again, I highlighted the relevent stamps)

3. See the attached photos with dates and locations on the back.

I don't really think it matters how you do it, as long as you have all the info asked for and it's organized neatly.
