Preparing the packet for the I-130 application

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody! I just wanted to ask a few questions about preparing the packet for the I-130 application. Regarding for example tickets/itineraries for travel as part of the proofs, (and I have many, years worth of back and forth tickets)- would it be a good idea if I encircled the main information on those pages of itineraries like passenger names, dates, arrival and departure locations, and/or made small annotations on the pages to help the officer reading them, quickly and better understand what they are looking at?

 

I just thought, with all the pages and information they would need to read through or look at, it would help out, and quickly and better explain whatever page they;d have to look at. Is this not a good idea? Am I not supposed to write or annotate on any printed proofs? How did you all prepare your proofs? Thanks for all your help.

Boarding passes and passport stamps are "evidence" of travel.  Itineraries can be useful in support of the actual evidence, but are NOT evidence of travel.  Sure, it's ok to use a highlighter.

I used post it notes or wrote what the page was on the top. i.e. "Prior I-94 for [name]" or "Prior or "Passport for [Name]" on some of my evidence pages. But I did not use a highlighter, per USCIS guidance.  https://www.uscis.gov/forms-filing-tips

 

5th bullet point. 

 

Of course I'm still waiting for my NOA2. So take it as you will. 

 

Welcome me to the world of waiting =)

I scanned all my documents, and then pasted them on a Microsoft Word document. There I wrote titles for every evidence ([name]'s boarding passes, [name]'s passport stamps, etc), and using the same program I highlighted things i thought were important, for example, dates or names on boarding passes, or receipts. Then I printed everything and sent that. I did not highlight anything using a highlighter because, as another poster said, guides tell you you not to use them.
