I-130 questions

Hello all,

I just want to say that its great to have a forum like this, it makes applying for a visa more manageable. I just got married less then 3 weeks ago and am now applying for a K-3 visa. I’m in the process of filling out a I-130 and had two questions. First, the instructions say that the applicant SHOULD provide evidence of an ongoing bonifide marriage. What has everyone’s experience been? Is this necessary? Second, in addition to submitting my birth certificate, I’ve copied the first two pages and the last two pages of my passport-is that all they want? Any suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

Your evidence for now mainly consists of a copy of your marriage certificate and maybe a couple of affidavits from friends and/or family members. That's all I sent in and we didn't have any issues.

Also, all you need is a copy of your birth certificate as proof of your US citizenship.

We just had my husband's mother do a sworn affadavit saying how long we were dating, when we got married, that we had an ongoing relationship, etc, etc. Then she signed it. That was the only thing we sent in...and we just had our I-130 approved!

When I see posts like yours I shudder. Firs tof all you have only been married 3 weeks! All your evicence will need to be emails, phone calls, pictures, pictures, and more pictures BEFORE THE MARRIAGE :yes: . Have you changed your last name to his yet. I hope so. That name needs to show up on utility bills, social security card, house note, phone bills, bank statements, credit cards and

and your passport. You can change it for free on the passport as long as you do it within a year. I would also get notarized letteers from family and friends (yours and his) stating that this is a bona fide marriage. Do you use phone cards. See if the store where you buy them will give you a notarized letter stating that you buy all those cards from them. If you are divorced you need a copy of the divorce papers, a spouse died..cooies of the death certificate and funeral pictures can't hurt.

Remember at some point they want only originals and that usually is at the interview. No copies!

If someone sent you a Christmas card or birthday card with your new last name on it, present it as evidence. Paint a picture of your marriage for them.

At the interview yes and no answers only. They are not your friends. Their job is to keep you apart.

When you do say more than 2 words make it short and to the point.

Good Luck!!
