During the immigration process, you will likely receive a lot of paperwork from the United States government. This can include receipt notices, fingerprints, transfer notices, approvals, and more. Because the process from first coming to the United States until you are hopefully able to become a citizen can take many years, it is important that you hang on to every bit of paper that you get. You never know if something that you received five or even ten years ago may be needed today. We recommend that you keep a folder with all the documents related to your immigration file and have it in a safe place, that way, if your attorney asks you for a specific document, you know exactly where it is.
