Remember to keep all originals and make copies for USCIS. In the future USCIS may require you to provide evidence and/or form depending on your individual case.

You must keep all copies and originals forever.

Read the instructions as listed in other responses and gather evidence now. It may take time to get your required evidence in your hand, for example, tax returns, certified copies etc.

I suggest making cover sheets for every section of the form you will file, do a bullet list and list the evidence forms required in the order of the your list on cover letter. This helps you and USCIS to find evidence, forms easier which may help you get approved quicker without RFE's. It is time consuming but worth in the effort. Most RFE's are the result of forgetting to include required evidence forms, etc.

Good luck.

PS: at interview have everything required, know family members, information about each other, photos, education, residence, etc. If any of your things needs explained write a brief letter to explain it.

Do you guys know why the list on here says we need a copy of the I-129F packet for this park, but on the list of documents on the UK gov website says we don't need it? Thanks.

London has not asked for a copy of the completed packet in a long time Nich-Nick can confirm as well as many other people who have had their interview in London. They have the approved I-129F sent to them by the NVC so they have their own copy that they review before you even show up to your interview.

Make sure to follow the list of items you need to bring to the interview from the website. If your beneficiary hasn't gotten them yet, I would start by getting their police certificates! They can take 2 weeks and if they lived any other country for more than 6 months they can take even longer!

Head to the UK forum and ask any other questions you have there! We are a close knit group and answer questions in the regional forum pretty quickly!

London has never asked for a copy of the entire I-129F packet to my knowledge. That's a VJ thing.

Things to do right now:

Prepare I-134 packet with two proofs of income at the most and mail to fiancé. Nothing else is needed from the USC.

Get police certificate.

Get shots sorted and a print out of any immunization with date.

Make sure UK passport will have 8 months validity left at the time of interview. Make sure it is not damaged, washed, spilled on or peeling. Otherwise replace asap.
