My lawyer says 'previous i20s' & 'copy of F1 Visa' are optional in F1 Initial OPT packet. Need second opinion.


Recommended Posts


I filed my F1 Initial OPT EAD through an Immigration attorney.

(1)  My attorney included ONLY the OPT recommended i20 but not any of my previous i20s.

(2)  She also did not include a copy of my F1 Visa.

I told her that my school’s checklist had the above (1) and (2) listed but she convinced me that they are optional. Other than the above, my entire packet is complete and I’ve all the required documentations.

Could someone give me a second opinion on my attorney’s judgement?


Any help is greatly appreciated.
