I am working on getting everything together to file the I-129f and it days "you should submit photocopies of documents requested" then down below it says "If you submit original documents when not required or requested by USCIS, your original documents may be immediately destroyed upon receipt."

 

I went to Walmart and had 4×6 pictures printed off of my phone.  The originals are on my phone with that being said, this might be a dumb question, will they automatically reject those pictures? Should I have just printed them off?  I just dont want anything to go wrong. Please help. :)

Supporting documents can be reprints/copies/whatever. The warning is so that people don't submit something like an original marriage certificate, birth certificate, etc., since they may not get it back.

Either is fine. They just need to be able to see them. There's not a formalized process for supporting evidence. Ours were in a folder by themselves, but others taped them to a sheet of paper, put them in nice binders with clear sleeves (which I don't recommended just because it's a hassle for the workers to take them out to scan, but doesn't hurt your case either way), put them in baggies, etc.

You are fine so don't worry. I had mine printed off from Snapfish.com. You can tape them on to a white sheet of paper and send them.in.

We printed ours off my phone and I glued them to white paper. My husband made color copies and I left the originals (the glued ones) with him to take to the interview later on. I'm sure it's fine.

For our I-129F we didn't even print pictures, we put a bunch of them together on PDF forms with explanations about what we were doing at the time and printed the pages off like that. Accepted with no problem :)

Nothing to worry about, just make sure to remember to write the names of the people that you were and where you were located on the back of the photos. 👍
