Submitting Supporting Documentation
Supporting documentation is the initial evidence that is required as proof of identification and as justification of eligibility for a benefit. These documents are required for USCIS to make a decision on your application. Examples of supporting documentation include copies of birth certificates, marriage licenses, Permanent Resident Cards, etc.
Check the instructions for the form you are e-Filing to determine what supporting documentation, if any, is required.
