I am filling I-485 for USCIS. Should I staple birth certificate to its translation or I should not staple anything at all?

Asked over 1 year ago - Lanham, MD

I am co-filling I-485, EAD, and AP. Where should I put my waiver for two year-home-return? Is it enough to just put one copy in I-485 or should put a separate copy for each form? thanks

    Answered . To staple, or not to staple ... that is the question. ... sorry, I couldn't help paraphrasing Shakespeare.

    It really doesn't matter how you assemble things ... they completely dis-assemble the papers when they arrive ... and, in most cases, scan them.

    PS Did you get an approved waiver, or are you wanting to submit it with the I-485? If you don't already have the approved waiver ........ talk to an attorney.
