3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, After weeks of work and preparations We're finally almost ready to send my I-751, I'm wondering what is  more convenient for USCIS  lockbox :

- I already have the papers punched at the top with a fastener and a cover letter and all that, should i put it in a protective envelope and then place it inside the box ?

- I want to use the sticky tabs on bottom, can I also use dividers ?


Thank you in advance!

Here is what USCIS says about how to prep documentation ( https://www.uscis.gov/forms-filing-tips😞

  • In preparing your packet, remember:
    • Do not use binders or folders that we cannot easily disassemble.
    • Use fasteners to hold together thick or bulky applications or petitions. Two-hole punching the top of the material for easy placement in the file is appreciated.
    • Sticky tabs assist in locating items listed as attachments. For easy filing, place the tabs on the bottom of the page, not the side.
    • Do not use heavy-duty staples; instead use fasteners or heavy clips.
    • Do not submit originals unless specifically required. 
    • Do not submit oversized documentation unless it is necessary.
  • If you are sending more than one case in an envelope, clearly separate the cases by rubber band or fasteners.
  • If you are resubmitting the packet in response to a Request for Evidence (RFE), please place the notice requesting the additional evidence/information on the top of the packet. Also, please use the special mailing envelope provided.
  • If you are submitting evidence in support of a previously filed appeal or motion, place a cover letter with “Brief for (Appeal/Motion)” on top of the packet.

I separated out sections with paperxlips and binder clips but you could use a divider if you want.  They will toss it.
