questions in this area...

One, is it essential to have 2 of these?

also, did you get them notarized?

and the basis content of such affidavits?


Peace to All creatures great and small............................................

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

We had each side neighbor sign an affidavit we prepared for them. I believe it had their name address, date and place of birth. Don't remember if it was notarized or not. USCIS asks for them so I definitely would provide them. If you are a regular church attender have your priest or minister fill one out, I believe such an affidavit carries a lot of weight.

you can send them in if you want but they are not a necessity specially if you have a lot of other evidence... they are mainly looking to see if your finances are intermingled etc...

I did not send in any affidavits and i was approved..

I used the templates from this site, had some friends and some neighbors sign them, then got them notarized. I know you don't have to do everything that is on the list of recommendations for the I 751 but I didn't take any chances, I made them up a nice folder with everything on the list with good documentation. I figure I'd rather have overkill then get a notice telling me I forgot something and waiting on the system... I still get nightmares about empty desks with stacks of paper 4 feet high... :wacko:


All done for the next 10 years...

Now more then ever..."and Miles to go before I sleep and miles to go before I sleep"

Lawers believe that affidevits carry a little weight-weakeast proof. But they have to be notarized if you want to send them (and from US ctzns or GC holders)

Pretty simple!

If USCIS clearly ask for them in the instruction do them.

Why take a chance even if others were approved without submitting them.

Anyone that has gone thru all the BS to get to removing conditions should know by now to do what "The Man" ask for!!! :bonk:

umm, the instructions clearly state that the following list are examples.... if that whole list is required evidence, how is a person who doesn't have any kids supposed to submit a birth certificate???

The documents should cover, but not limited to,the following examples:

1. Birth certificate(s) of child(ren) born to the marriage.

2. Lease or mortgage contracts showing joint occupancy and/or ownership of your communal residence.

3. Financial records showing joint ownership of assets and joint responsibility for liabilities, such as joint savings and checking accounts, joint federal and state tax returns, insurance policies that show the other spouse as the beneficiary, joint utility bills, joint installments or other loans.

4. Other documents you consider relevant to establish that your marriage was not entered into in order to evade the U.S. immigration laws.

5. Affidavits sworn to or affirmed by at least two people who have known both of you since your conditional residence was granted and have personal knowledge of your marriage and relationship. (Such persons may be required to testify before an immigration officer as to the information contained in the affidavit.) The original affidavit must be submitted and also contain the following information regarding the person making the affidavit: his or her full name and address; date and place of birth; relationship to you or your spouse, if any; and full information and complete details explaining how the person acquired his or her knowledge. Affidavits must be supported by other types of evidence listed above.

I don't think we sent any in at first, and we had lacked evidence such as joint mortgages because when we opened the account they didn't want my name on it because i was 'conditional' etc - they were scared to commit to me because in their eyes my status wasn't secure.

Then we got RFE'ed.

We got about six or seven affadavits from friends - even one from my home country who had visited. One came from a US Navy officer and was notarized. The rest were just statements. We asked them to write it in their own words but to include the information that USCIS request. We also sent in a couple of other things - car insurance statement, one electricity statement with both our names on (that I had called up and explained the situation to the elec company and got them to assist)

I just found out yesterday that 'card production' had been ordered... so, I think it pays to include some. IMO.

I am not saying you shouldn't include affidavits.... but if you have plenty of other evidence I think it is ok not to send them... and like you said you didn't have a joint mortgage so they probably wanted to see more proof......

You see, my lawer has about 20 years of immigration experience-and talks to immg officers on everyday basis. He was very clear that I should not bother with affidevits. I was surprised-but why should I argue with professional about simple matter. Personally, I think it would not hurt to include. But if you have bunch of other stuff and do not want to bother friends/relatives, why overkill.
