Proof of Marriage for Form I-130

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

We were married in November. I am completing form I-130, and I have a question. My question involves the form I-130 instructions on page 2, right side middle of the page which requests additional documentation.

"Did you submit other required supporting evidence?"

The I-130 instructions mention documentation showing joint ownership or property; a lease showing joint tenancy of a common residence;

or documentation showing co-mingling of financial resources; or birth certificate(s) of child(ren) born to you, the petitioner, and your spouse together. I don't have any of those.

How can you prove familial relationship if I live in the U.S. and she still lives in Colombia? I'm not including the marriage certificate because the USCIS wants the documentation mentioned above in addition to the marriage certificate? I do send money for the rent. Can that be used as supporting documentation?

Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your help.

Most simply provide item #5 "Sworn Affidavits from friends"

Keep in mind may of the items mentioned assume being married for some time living overseas, it is understood that they are not available in cases where there is a short marriage.

You do include a copy of marriage cert to show the basis of a SPOUSAL visa.

You absolutely must submit the marriage certificate. I've seen no evidence of any newlyweds who have never lived in the same country have any problems when they simply ignore the "in additionto the required...." list of item. Rather than bothering with with item 5, affidavits, I'd submit some 6, "any other" in the form of a few pictures and documenting with boarding passes, passport stamps etc. the time you spent together. Then bring plenty of evidence of bona fide ongoing relationship to the interview.


Facts are cheap...knowing how to use them is precious...

Thanks everybody for your information. I decided to get an affidavit from two people that attended the wedding, a friend of 30 years and my sister. I should have the signed affidavits by the end of next week. I have three types of third party affidavits. I'm not sure which one is best. Would anyone have an idea? They're in pdf form, but I'm not sure if I can post them or if it's against the rules.

Thanks again.
