I-130 Evidence of Bonafide Marriage

Timeline

I'm getting married next month to a woman from Germany that I met about 1 year ago. We're getting married here in the US and she is returning to her job in Germany until the visa process is complete, then move here. I plan to file the I-130 shortly after the marriage so I won't have most of the items in the list except for possible affidavits from guests at the wedding ceremony. I'm wondering what else should I include, if anything. Should I include photos, chats, plane tickets, and the rest of it? Most of this is taking place before the marriage so is it considered "evidence of a bonafide marriage"?

Some photos and communication evidence will do nicely for a newlywed visa case. Anything you read after the words, "In addition to the required..." is NOT required.

My husband and I sent our petition like 2 weeks after we married. We included photos from each visit that occured before the marriage, and a LOT of wedding photos. As well, we sent some letters that we'd sent each other over the years. It was all fine and we were approved. :)

Good luck !

The only proof of "Bonafide" Marriage I sent with my I-130 was a copy of our Philippine Marriage Contract (Certificate) and 2 joint bank statements (2 different banks).

My I-130 was approved and my wife has resided in the US for 6 months and 1 day.

You pretty much only need your marriage certificate as proof but if you want you can send additional stuff like affidavits from people who know you, photos, boarding passes etc. Just don't send everything you have because you will also need evidence to show the CO during the interview. I only sent a copy of our marriage certificate and 2 affidavits, one from my mom and one from my sister, along with the I-130. Nothing more.
