How many marriage certificates should I send in? I am putting my entire package today for my AOS.

I was thinking of sending like 4 just in case....or just to be a smartie pants.

But what is REAL the amount you need?

Bee - Devon PA, USA (he's the one who gave her the shiny ring)

Getting our sanity tested by bureaucracy since 2007.

I sent 1 for each form (485, 130, 131, 765) but only because it was proof of my wife's legal name change. I know I probably overdid it, but I didnt know if all those forms got seperated and figured I'd be better safe than deal with an RFE. I also know I am in the minority here.
