Organizing documents for my appt in 6 weeks

Postby DeFilippis78 » 23 Apr 2011, 20:35

My appt is in 6 weeks. Im still waiting for docs with the seals and some translations. Once I receive them all, how should I have everything neatly organized for the consulate? I have a ton of paperwork and "no naturalization" records plus all the marriage/death/birth certificates. Anyone want to share how you made your application look professional, neat and organized?

Wow! It's finally almost here. Best of luck.

The interviewer will probably ask for your documents in sequence, so you should organize them in a manner that will make it easy to find what you need. I set up separate file folder for each person in the line (gf, f, me, son).

I included a summary sheet for each file folder (a listing of the documents enclosed) and placed them in chronological sequence. For example, in my gf's folder, I included first his Italian bc, followed by his marriage certificate, followed by his naturalization papers, followed by his death certificate. To each document, I clipped the translation and two copies. (I didn't need two copies except for my gf's bc.

I also prepared a summary sheet that showed the sequence of the citizenship line. I posted a sample here: You may find the entire thread helpful, but the sample summary is on page 2.
