Thanks for the quick response Chardon Ne and congrats on getting approved!

 

-So do you think we should enclose 6 payslips as opposed to the most recent one? Also my husband's Tax return for previous years clearly states his employment history and the start date at most recent company and his position there-should we get a letter anyway from his work?

-Do you think all is on order with what I've posted?

Not if your income is adequate. I sent them to show I was currently employed because the taxes are for the previous year. I included my job letter as my previous 2 year's taxes were kind of low and I was working at a different job and had some unemployment income in there as well. I did not submit my 2 previous  years taxes either as I did not want them to include that as part of the picture,  and it was optional. No I do not think all is in order as some of the forms should be in separate packages the only 2 forms that should go together are the 485 and 864. The others should be put together with binary clips as small pkgs for handling by someone else as they are sorted and  forwarded upon reaching the lock box.

Oh, I got you about the income. I think ours is adequate so it will be fine to submit one payslip.

-I've seen that most people here filed the sub forms (Form I-693, Form I-131a, Form I-864. Form I-765)  under Form i-485. I do have two separate batches (Form I-130 and Form I-485), clearly marked and to be bound by fasteners at the top, as per USCIS requirements. I also used removable labeled tabs at the bottom of pages to mark all sub forms clearly and easy to find below stack. the two batches of documents will be mailed in one large envelope from the overnight courier.

Are you saying this isn't right?

No you should have 4 batches. The 131 and 765 are independent documents from the 485. You could have filed them individually and paid the fees but they are free with 485 so it makes sense to file them now. The 485 batch will be sent to your local office for processing while National benefits center will process the rest. If you notice with   mine,  each number included a form (2-5) and was packaged as a separate batch.
