Do I have everything for my K3 interview

Okay... 9 days until my interview in Vancouver for my K3 and the panic is starting to sink in that anything and everything that can go wrong will. So first off, do I have all my paperwork in order? I looked through the checklist and it appears I do but in times like this, a 2nd or 3rd set of eyes always helps. :)

Neither of us has been married before, have no children and no criminal background. I have only ever lived in Toronto as well. My name is also not common so I hope hope hope there is no US namecheck hit that would throw a wrench into our plans.

I'm bringing as indicated in my checklist:

- $100 USD Cash

- complete case file for both my I-129F and I-130 including both original & photocopied approval notices (just in case)

- hardcopy of original and photocopied DS-230 Part 1 and attachment that I faxed in

- hardcopy of original and photocopied of checklist that I faxed in

- Cdn passport (expires in 2011)

- Ontario long form birth certificate with raised embossed seal, original and photocopy

- VA marriage certificate with raised embossed seal, original and photocopy

- sealed medical report (and the 2nd copy I purchased, not sealed)

- RCMP police certificate that I got from Commissionaires in Toronto, original and photocopy (original does not have any sort of raised seal and looks kind of ghetto)

- 2 passport photos, 2"x2", colour, signed and name & case number printed on back

- DS-156 (2 copies), not signed or dated

I'm also bringing these things even though they weren't asked:

- 3 letters attesting to the validity of the marriage (1 from a mutual friend, 1 from my friend and 1 from his mom)

- photos of us together from all but 1 of our visits

- boarding passes and itineraries of our visits

- Signed and notarised I-134 along with W2s and tax returns for the past 3 years, letter from his employer and his most recent pay stubs

Anything I'm missing?

My husband is accompanying me to the interview so he can calm my nerves...

Sorry, my checklist doesn't say to bring some of the things I listed, but I'm bringing it anyway! :D I feel all panicky and sick to my stomach thinking about this.

Yup, remember the interview letter. Other than that, they do like to take some sort of backup material for the I-134 -- at our interview, the CO only wanted my employment letter -- I offered up my paystubs, but he said that they weren't necessary. So, given the fact that your file is so thorough, I'm sure you'll be fine! Good luck and have some fun, too! :thumbs:

You know what's funny? Vancouver doesn't even REQUIRE the I-134 for K3s! But I'm bringing it anyway. :P

Thanks for looking this over guys. :)

I'll try and breathe... for today. I'll be panicking on Friday night though since I'm flying out to Vancouver on Saturday. I'll probably be double-checking my carry-on luggage over and over again and obsessively checking our flight times for any delays (he's meeting me in Vancouver).

Oh, yeah, we took a cab over to the Consulate (it was -25 -- freeze your nose shut sort of weather) and I thought -- "wouldn't it be lovely if we'd left our worldly documents in the cab?" So, be sure to CHECK THE OVERHEAD BIN and under the seat in front of you!!! :D
