I'm American and I want to apply to IR5 for my father. I'm filling I-130 petition - Do I need any other documents for step 1?

Asked over 1 year ago - Orlando, FL

I am filling i-130, do I need to send any other documents (my birth certificate copy, i-846, g-1145, his documents) together with the i-130, or should I send it later after I receive a response from the petition?

It is multi step and requires much attention to detail. Many people encounter delays due to errors. Please have an experienced attorney handle this for you.
