Hello,

I just recently got married and in process of starting my i-130 paperwork. My question is, what do i need to include in my affidavitt? can i just include wedding pics, wedding card? or does have to be affidavitt from relatives/friends?

2nd question:

Is it ok for me to change her last name to reflect mine before i apply for I-130 or should i just leave it as her original name when i apply?

Thanks,

All you need is a copy of your marriage certificate and maybe a couple of affidavits from other people saying that you both have a bona fide marriage. You can start saving other evidence such as pictures, e-mails, chats, etc. for the interview at the embassy.

You can write down her married name on the I-130 if you want to.

Or, for newlyweds, you can skip the cheezie affadavits and include some pictures as "any other..." from the list.

My man who married my wife's sister will file an I-130 next week. Because marrying the sister of a recent LPR (my wife) is a small red flag, we'll be including some pictures and evidence of their having met independently on the internet rather than through an arrangement by my wife. Pictures, chat logs and example chats from the 8 months leading up to their in-person meeting and marriage and evidence they spent 20 days together. We won't be including any affidavits with the petition.

I am confused by what people say they include in the I-130. My attorney prepared a package of documents that she submitted for I-130 and she has done hundreds of these applications doesn't include extra material. I am curious why people include material not requested, I understand preparing all the info later on and just in case but does USCIS really want to see a bunch of extra stuff?

Thanks,

affidavits are to give the initial reviewer or the adjudicating officer enough evidence that the marriage is not fake or done solely for the purpose of obtaining a legal permanent residence in the United States. according to me, providing this depends on one's personal opinion as to how they want to prove that their marriage is infact legit. some people do it with affidavits, while some others do it with pictures, chat logs or bank/insurance accounts or a proof that they share financial assets. it all depends on your good judgement.

The married name is not reflecting on her original passport and Country ID Card, do i need to change it on that first and then apply for paperwork?
