In Breaking Dawn ,when Bella goes and looks for J. Jenks was she right to ask for the papers or did she need to do something else?

I just don't understand what Alice was trying to tell her.

Bella finds out from J's "assistant" on the stoop that he deals in papers.  This is why Alice sent Bella to J's office in a bad neighborhood, instead of his nicer office:  she wanted Bella to find out what J does.  Alice was giving Bella a way to make sure that Renesmee lived on.  Since Alice's visions change every time someone changes their mind or makes a new decision, she couldn't be sure how the confrontation with the Volturi would turn out.  So she wanted to give Bella a chance to get everything in order for Renesmee, in case an escape had to be made.  Jasper has used J in the past to make papers, undoubtedly because the Cullens need to continue to make themselves younger and to give themselves new identities.  So Alice knew that J would be able to help Bella make a new identity for Renesmee in order for her to escape the Volturi and have a chance to keep on living, even if the rest of them died.
