I think they are more interested in something anectodal. That is kind of like a form. Just have a statement written up and then notarized with a sworn oath to it's truthfulness.

I agree. Have them write it in their own words and then get it notarized.

That was what I had... a form letter written and signed by my parents, and notorized. It stated that both sides of the family were there for our ceremony and it was a true and binding relationship, along with a statement of birth and citizenship. Apparently, that wasn't the kind of proof the embassy was looking for. Had I known what the future held for us I'd have taken lots of pictures together the first time we met because they seemed very interested in the fact we only had 3 pics together prior to us getting married the next year. I think they'd loose their marbles if they knew the things that go on in Las Vegas.

UGH! Why does this have to be so confusing and convoluded? No wonder it takes so friggin' long!! They NEED streamlining - a system. Every decent place of business I know has a system (even McDonalds!) - INPUT: do this, that and the other and OUTPUT: Visa Sheesh!!! Systems are more cost effective also, maybe putting a streamlining system in place will be one of president elects "changes".

Aya,

Here is what I had the witness from our wedding write:

I, (name), born on (date) in (place of birth), am the friend of (SO) who married (me) from the United States. I stood in and witnessed their marriage on (date, time, place, city, state, country). If there are any questions please call me at (phone number) or write me at (mailing address). I confirm these facts to be true to the best of my knowledge.

(signature)

And here is what I had my mom write who wasn't at the wedding:

I, (name), born on (date) in (place of birth), am the mother of (me), who married (SO) of (country). I have seen their wedding certificate which is dated (date, time, place, city, state, country). I ascertain it to be a true and legal document of their marriage. If there are any questions please call me at (phone number) or write me at (mailing address). I confirm these facts to be true to the best of my knowledge.

(signature)

and she had this notorized

Will these work? Well, I believe they will, but I haven't yet received the affidavit from the witness as soon as I do I will send off my I-130 packet.

Hello again I have a few questions also, or am in looking in to this to deeply? I have a affidavit from the US Embassy in Conakry. My civil marriage was done at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs there in Conakry also. My marriage certificate however is in French which I tried to get in in english but they told me over and over again that its ok. They have done plenty of marriages and have never had any problem, and it just so happen that my wife Queen Mother in our wedding works there and I told her what I needed and I even signed online and showed her this site and the guidelines and she told us not to worry. Do I need to get more proof of "bonefide wedding" or will the proof that I have be enough. And 1 last question my wife birth certificate is in French also will I need to get that translated also and what about when she does her medical exam which will be a French speaking country also will we need to get those documents in english also :blink:


My wife you are simply beautiful and perfect for mehttp://da.daisypath.com/w3wlm4.png
