HOW TO Assemble Your 1-140 Petition


 

 

 

 

 

 

We recommend assembling your package in the following order: 

  1. 1. Check or money order or Form G-1450, Authorization for Credit Card Transactions. If you are paying by check or money order, write your name and I-140 . If you are paying with a credit card, see USCIS  Pay with a Credit Card webpage.
  2. 2. Form G-1145, Request for e-Notification (Note only US numbers can receive text messages)
  3. 3. Form I-140
  4. 4. Form ETA 750B or ETA 9089 in duplicate
  5. 5. Supporting documentation: 
  • Supporting documents must be in English or accompanied by a complete English translation which the translator has certified as complete and accurate. The English translation must be accompanied by the translator's certification that they are competent to translate from the foreign language into English. 

  • Submit legible copies of official documents, but do not send the original documents unless specifically requested in the form instructions or applicable regulations. If you send an original document with your form, it may become part of the record or be destroyed. We will not return it to you automatically. 

  • In most cases, a copy of a USCIS notice, if available, is acceptable evidence of a prior, related filing. If you prefer to provide a copy of a complete prior application, petition, or request in support of a new filing, please be sure that the prior application, petition, or request is clearly marked as a “COPY” at the top of each page to ensure it is processed as intended. 

  • All forms and supporting documents submitted must be single-sided, standard 8½ x 11 letter-size pages. 

  • Please do not submit evidence using digital media, photo albums, scrapbooks, or binders, which cannot be processed and will be returned to you. 

  • You may number support pages and include the total number of pages being attached (for example, “page 1 of 11”). 

  • If you forget to send in supporting documentation with your benefit request package, please do not submit them in a separate package to a USCIS lockbox. Please retain the supporting documents so they can be submitted later, if requested by USCIS by sending you a Request for Evidence (RFE)

In preparing your packet, remember

  • Do not use binders or folders that we cannot easily disassemble.
  • Do not use heavy-duty staples. Instead, use fasteners or heavy clips to hold together thick or bulky applications or petitions. Two-hole punching the top of the material for easy placement in the file is appreciated. Note: this is only applicable when submitting filings at a USCIS lockbox location. We recommend that you do not use fasteners, hole punch, staple, paper clip, binder clip, or otherwise attach documents to one another when filing directly with a USCIS service center as that may cause delays in scanning the documents into the electronic database systems.
  • Sticky tabs assist in locating items listed as attachments. For easy filing, place the tabs on the bottom of the page, not the side. Note: this is only applicable when submitting filing at a USCIS lockbox location. We recommend that you do not place sticky notes on documents when filing directly with a USCIS service center as that may cause delays in scanning the documents into the electronic database systems. 
  • If you are resubmitting the packet in response to a Request for Evidence (RFE), please place the notice requesting additional evidence/information on the top of the packet.
