In your sentence:

"Would you like for me to send the lists of documents for a student and visitors."

the preposition "for" looks unnecessary. So if removed:

"Would you like me to send the lists of documents for a student and visitors."

It will mean that they ask you if you want them (him/ her) to send the lists of documents...

It will mean if you want that they will send it.

  • So without removing "for", what does it mean? Jul 10, 2019 at 15:32
  • Will mean the same as without the "for." That expression, "like for," used to be strictly a southern American regionalism, but it is now spread throughout the United States. It has never been accepted outside the US and is never heard (according to Burchfield), in the UK. The "for" is certainly not necessary, but it's not wrong to use it.
