So after I sent my I-129F packet for K-1 Visa I read that binders wouldn’t be preferred? Would they send it back and make me file again? 

No you just have made someone at the service center very angry lol

:oops:We burned the binder and marked your record "problem child". :rofl: Just kidding.

 

They will remove the contents from the binder and destroy it. They will scan your documents that are needed into your file. You'll be ok.

Another post here on VJ today with this same question and their binder of photos and other evidence was returned.  So I guess it depends on the USCIS location you sent your petition to.  They prefer single 8.5" x 11" pages so that they can easily scan them.

I always thought you would get 'points' for style and organization. But scanning many threads concerning -129F applicants, advice fell on the side of papers only! So as advised, I sent an introduction letter and right behind it a 'Table Of Contents' sheet outlining what the package consisted of. That seemed to be the conventional wisdom and I prefer to do things only once! Good luck to you!

They hate and don't want binders.  Might get sent back.

I hole punched mine at the top and put it together with a file fastner with a table of contents on the top. Thought it might save someone time if they put it in a folder but if they scan everything maybe not.

As long as they can remove and scan it, they should accept it. It won't hurt your case at all.

But yeah...I pity the guy/girl that gets it to scan it.

I am very sorry for the person. If I knew I wouldn’t have. I pray they don’t send it back and pls just have mercy on me and scan them. I’m praying for the best.

They will return photo albums and non-letter/legal (or a4) sized binders.
