Hi VJers,

I am about to submit I-130 for my wife and needed some help with what was needed to be submitted along with the application.

I am submitting following:

  • pictures (4 in number)
  • marriage certificate
  • affidavit from parents and relatives
  • Joint bank account letter

Do I need any this else?

For example do I need to submit:

  • Passport stamps for exit ad entry into India for both of us
  • Itinerary and Boarding pass receipts for both of us

I did not want to over whelm them with papers.

Any help would be much appreciated....

If anything I WOULD overwhelm them with papers. You want to make sure that you prove that you have a bonafide relationship, you want to avoid recieving a Request for Further Evidence (RFE) later on that will slow down your progress.

Send everything that you can think of that can prove you have an ON-GOING BONAFIDE relationship.

We sent in candid pictures from our wedding and reception with his family and mine; pictures from trips; copies of stamps on his passport entering Nicaragua; copies of plane tickets to Nicaragua; postmarked envelopes; copies of life and health insurance with me as beneficiary.

Good luck with the rest of your journey!
