Folding Documents?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Alright, this is probably a really stupid question but I can't seem to find the answer anywhere on VisaJourney or Google. 

 

So, I've got a certified copy of our marriage license from the county clerk and it's a lot longer than a normal 8.5x11 sheet of paper, or even A4. It sticks right out and I was wondering if it would be an issue if we folded it? I wouldn't fold it over the lifted stamp or anything but want to know if it would be an issue.

 

Hoping to finally send out our AOS package tomorrow! We meant to send it out last week but I've been busy with work.

You can fold it without issue. 

 

Marriage licenses and certificates are longer than A4 here in Texas also, and probably quite a few other states.

I know this doesn't help but you only need to send photocopies. I dont think it will matter if you fold it. It's only a photocopy.

Yeah I wasn't sure which it was, I've got a photocopy as well but we've got an original and another certified copy so we're just sending our extra certified copy.

Get a longer envelope?  Too simple?

our envelope isn't the problem. I'm more concerned with their filing system having most of our papers being the same size. A freakishly long single piece of paper leaves the potential for it getting ripped or something.

That's just another reason I'd be inclined to send them a simple photocopy over a certified copy. It's what I did.
