Attaching Extra Letters for USCIS Officers

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Happy Friday y'all!

 

I am almost done with the AOS package and ready to send it in the mail tomorrow morning. 

 

I have seen some folks on here and other forums/YouTube videos that attach extra letters to their packet explaining situations. Below are some questions. Please help/identify if you think a letter would be required:

 

- Sending my 2019 Amended Tax Return copy because it has not processed yet. (I-864)

 

- What about writing one coz we are not sending in the I-944?

 

- Do we really need to write a letter explaining our relationship? (I-130)

 

Additionally, do we need to write captions behind our printed photos from different places/occasions?

Well you don't have a timeline or show what visa you are adjusting from.

Send what you have - if not the transcript make sure you include copies of all of the original attachments.

USCIS will know what policy to enfore based on the date it is postmarked.

Are you adjusting from another visa - then Include the I-130A if you are adjusting based on marriage.

Photos should be scanned copies onto standard paper.  Put any captions/ dates underneath each photo.

Apologies, I'm still figuring out how to make a timeline. Adjustment is from visitor visa (B1/B2).

I have the Amended Tax Return copy but it is unsigned/undated. I can sign/photocopy but I don't remember the date. Would this be a big problem?

Really? Are printed photographs in a clear plastic bag (attached to a blank sheet) not allowed? 

 

Thank you for your time!

Don't sign your tax return and risk writing a different date - They scan most of the files, so it would be easier for them to include the photos on a piece of paper - I printed photo collages off at Walgreens to include.

So you recommend sending the tax return copy without the signature and date? Would that not cause an RFE?

Other than passport style photos, if and when required, and a check, everything sound be on 8.5 x 11 paper.   Putting evidence photos in a baggie just means the whole packet gets put to the side to be manually scanned and delays your processing.

 

Plus those photos aren't considered primary evidence (too easy to fake) so only include a sheet or two. Boarding passes, hotel receipts and passport stamps are the best.
