Just confirming what I need to do as soon as we're officially married:
I'm using this link to provide me with all the forms I need.
I will have the i-130 package, including the i-130 form, a copy of my wife's birth cert and passport, a copy of my own passport, a copy of our marriage cert, and a g-325a biometric form from both of us.
The one part I'm a little confused by is #15: "Evidence of a bonafide marriage". I'll be sending these off the day we get married. We won't have any joint accounts yet. I can only provide evidence of our relationship (photos, travel receipts, etc) - is that enough?
I'm also having trouble with the i-485. Do I send it with the others, or is it separate? The wording is also a little confusing in section part 2, option b, where it says "my spouse of parent applied for adjustment of status..." - that's what I tick, right? To me, "applied for adjustment of MY status" is more accurate. Reading it as it is makes it look like she's the one who's looking for adjustment. (Sorry, I know I'm nitpicking... just trying to be 100% thorough).
For the i-864 (Affidavit of support) that I send with the main package, do I need 2 copies? One for my wife to tick "I am the petitioner", and one for her father to tick "I am the [second] of 2 joint sponsors?
I also noticed I'm asked for a i-94 number. Should I have one of those on the VWP?
Oh, and at the very top of the Biograhic Info form, it asks for a "file number". What's that?
And finally, what's the "EAD"? Google tells me it's a employment authorization document. Does that automatically come when I make these applications, or is that yet another form?
