Would anyone have some examples of what to write for the affidavits? The ones I have found on the internet, and even here on VJ, seem mostly for when the spouse is already living here.

I just went by the guidelines of the paper which says the person writing the affadavit must swear to the statement, give the various requested info, and then have a witness with some requested info.

I don't offhand recall the specifics but I think it was , their name, address,DOB, id or ssn#(if available), and phone number. As well as relationship?

Anyway, I had my husbands brother (wife witness) write a statement which he swore he was at our cival union and threw our wedding party and we visited he and his wife frequently and behaved as normal married couple and that he knew his brother had planned to marry me for quite some time, I had our landlord/neighbor (son witness) swear that he rented us our flat and for how long and the exact dates and that he saw us coming and going and allowed us access to flat after he knew us as a married couple via our marriage paper, and I had my mom (father witness) swear a statement of the general relationship origins, goals, and plans, her knowledge of us both and her own hope to help us.

Good luck...
