recently asked about a coversheet for the I-129F.
I think it is a good idea. I got the idea from http://k1.exit.com/.
I also followed the INS Guidelines and used heavy paper dividers
(60-80lb paper) with adhesive tabs along the bottom to note the location
of individual items. I also used the top-of-page double punches with
ACCO fasteners. This also shows what is actually in a K1 petition. The
I-134 is optional. If you include one, you should also prepare a second
and send it straight to your girl. Below is a copy of my cover letter
converted to HTML.
Thanks to Andrew at QWE.COM for his help.
