what to include in i-130 package

hi everyone,

we are thinking what we need to include in the i-130 package, and what we found is that we should include evidence of bonafide marriage; we have photos, shared lease, share bank account, marriage certificate, 2 affidavits from family and friends - would that be enough?

another thing: since I came on tourist visa with intent to just visit, and now I have to prove it - do I submit those proving things (like return tickets, affidavits from friends) with I-130 form for visa fraud suspicion? or do I bring those proves with me later to the interview?

please, anyone, help!?

No need to freak out, be calm and take it slowly. The process can be stressful. Your initial evidence sounds good. Submit copies of your evidence with the AOS package and keep the originals for the interview. I didnt really overload on the AOS but included a whole lot of stuff just so they can have the stuff we have already done and now will bring the stuff collected between AOS and Interview and the originals from before.

hi VJ people!

I asked this question and didn't really get the kind of answer I was hoping to hear.

I need to know if we need to include in our I-130 and I-485 forms things that prove the initial intention of coming on B-2 visa to avoid the visa fraud suspicion? or do we keep those things to bring them with us to the AOS interview? please help folks!!

and thank you a lot!!

Since they don't ask for it, I would vote no. If you did not misuse your tourist visa, why are you so eager to prove it?

5/23/12: Sent out package

hi there,

because we were told it'll be one of their concerns... we are not really eager to prove it, but if it'll be one of the reasons why they'd deny AOS, then we'd prefer to provide with those proofs.

anyway,... now I don't really know what to do...

You don't need to send with AOS package your prove of non-intent. You can bring it to the interview and show it if they ask.

I'm planning also bring it to the interview, but I have never heard anyone to be asked for it.

oh thank you! that's all what I needed!

btw, i love Belarus, I've been in Brest and have friends from there - great people!!

I have never heard of anyone being asked about evidence proving lack of intent during POE.

But I have heard IOs directly asking applicants:

1. Did you have any intent to get married, adjust status and obtain a permanent resident card before or when you entered the US?

2. What did the officer at the POE ask you when you entered this country?

3. Did you get married to evade the immigration laws of the United States?
