So basicaly all they want is a document to say the marriage took place? They have marriage certificates for that don't they :blink: . Pretty much that is all that is being said. Its crazy that they would even need that because it proves or shows nothing as far as the bonafides, all that would show is someone got married.

You're right. I also believe just marriage certificate is more than enough. But the affidavit is making by 2 more persons, that's all !

Can this affidavit be written on a regular 8x11 white paper? or in a 8X 14 white paper? or is there a format to use when doing affidavit? Any information regarding this would be helpful. I'm just about to gather documents that are needed to include in my I-130 petition. thanks in advance.

I don't think it has to do with the fact that you attended the wedding. I think it's geared more towards the <b>validity of the relationship </b><img src="http://www.visajourney.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/yes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":yes:" border="0" alt="yes.gif" />

I agree. Its more about witnessing a valid relationaship. I included one from my mother and father (both USC as well). Here is an example, I used the template form this site. Dont think the size of doc matters. Hope it helps!

In re: application for a Visa for the United States of America

Evidence in support of a bona fide marriage between Celina XXXXX, applicant, and Francisco Xxxxx, beneficiary.

AFFIRMATION OF DOYLE XXXXX

DOYLE XXXXX, being duly sworn, deposes and says:

1. I am making this affirmation in connection with the application of Celina XXXXX for a Visa for the United States of America. The contents of the affirmation are based on my own knowledge and are true.

2. I was born on December 99, 9999 in the city of Forestburg, county of Montague, State of Texas, U.S.A.

3. My address is XXXXX.

4. Celina Marie Fowler, the applicant, is my daughter.

5. I first met Francisco XXXXX and witnessed him and Celina XXXXX as couple when he came to California on vacation in February 2010 and visited with Celina, my wife and I, and we all spent time together. I became aware of the relationship of between Francisco March and Celina Marie Fowler a year prior but this was the first time I witnessed them as a couple in person.

6. Francisco XXXXX came to California again in January 2011 with a friend and spent time with me and my wife and stayed at our home. Celina was not present during this occasion, but I knew they had a genuine and serious relationship.

7. I have visited Francisco XXXXX and Celina XXXXX in their home at XXXXX, Buenos Aires, Argentina and found them a very happy couple and obviously in love.

8. I was a witness at Francisco XXXXX and Celina XXXXX wedding on March 1, 2011 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

9. I have personal knowledge of the bona fide relationship of Francisco and Celina. Their marriage is legitimate, viable, and not entered into for any immigration-related purpose.
