How to organize my I-485 concurrent filing
I don't think there's a right or wrong way of organizing the I-485 package. It all depends on how you want the agent to review your case. I separated my package into 3 papers on top, 7 folders and 1 sealed envelope. Here's my filing order for your reference:
  1. Four G-1450 Forms (on top) - Authorization for Credit Card Transactions for I-485, I-130, I-131 & I-765
  2. Main Cover Letter
  3. I-485 Folder - Adjustment of Status
  4. I-864 Folder - Affidavit of Support
  5. I-944 Folder - Declaration of Self-Sufficiency
  6. I-130 Folder - Petition for Alien Relative & I-130A Supplementary Information for Spouse Beneficiary
  7. Evidence of Bona-Fide Marriage Folder
  8. I-765 Folder - Application for Employment Authorization
  9. I-131 Folder - Application for Travel Document
  10. Sealed I-693 Envelope - Report of Medical Examination & Vaccination Record

How to assemble my I-485 concurrent filing package

On the USCIS website, there are some guidelines you can follow:
  • Use black ink
  • Do not use highlighter or correction fluid/tape
  • Do not use binders or folders that cannot be easily disassembled
  • Make sure you have written "Original Submission" on the package and the main cover letter. 
  • Add tabs at the bottom, not on the side
  • Two-hole punching on top is appreciated - This is not required and I wasn't sure about the hole distance, so I decided to skip the hole punching
