How do I attach additional information to my I-130 petition?

In many cases you may have more information than will fit into the standard space provided on Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative. This is common for petitioners with several previous addresses or employers.

You can make use of Page 12, Part 9 on Form I-130. Add any additional information which did not fit in other parts of the form. However, sometimes Part 9 is not sufficient or does not comfortably accommodate the additional information.
