Hello!

I'm looking for some EXAMPLES of AFFIDAVITS that have been submitted as evidence of marriage relationship. I do not want to copy, I just want to help my witnesses and make sure they include everything!

I searched the forums here and found many discussions and one example, but I'm wondering if there are MORE?

Please let me know! Thank you!



Per I-130 instructions:

I. Affidavits sworn to or affirmed by third parties having personal knowledge of the bona fides of the marital relationship. (Each affidavit must contain the full name and address, date and place of birth of the person making the affidavit, his or her relationship to the petitioner of beneficiary, if any, and complete information and details explaining how the person acquired his or her knowledge of your marriage);

Affidavits are one option but most folks just use the last item in the list you're quoting from and submit "other" evidence the relationship is bona fide. Remember, any affidavit is about the bona fides of the relationship, not just affirming the marriage took place. Unless they can say more than they attended a ceremony or party, they really don't mean much.
