Affirmation of material fact

I would include such a thing IF it is useful to focus on a RED FLAG that GUZ IV might trip her up on.

The thinking is -

if USCIS approves the petition with the material that you've given them with the I-130 submittal,

then

GUZ IV cannot use that material (or lack of it) to deny the visa..

There's lots of other legal terminology about this, but that's mostly it, in layman's terms. My own personal label for this is a 'letter of attestation'.

You gots any of the red flags covered over at [ GUZ IV red flags - http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/234971-red-flag-list-for-visa-denial/page__hl__appointment ] ?? Those are for the K-1, most can be tagged for the CR-1 as well.

Perhaps, instead of affirmation of material fact, you were seeking to write up an evolution of relationship letter, instead? here is my sample:

Now, even with all that said, really, IMO, to have such a thing and the need for such a thing, depends on what the thing is.

Can you share what that thing is? Perhaps get other inputs if we knew what that thing was. IF it's too frickin personal, though, is ok.

Hello,

Looking at all the red flags there are I can only think the time when we first met in person to when we get married was a bit fast, but maybe I'm stressing on it. We met online Oct 13, 2010, we met in person on May 19, 2011, we married June 13, 2011, and I am back in the states on June 29, 2011. We have talked every day and usually talked fr 3-6 hours each of those days. Both of us are in our 20's, never married, she is an english student at college (now graduated), I will be done in a year with my geology degree, I am intending on being back in December. I am sorry, I am just a bit stressed out right now making sure all the t's are crossed and i's dotted. Thank you for any help.

well, you could practice a bit with writing up yer version of the evolution of relationship letter, flesh that out a bit, see if that will cover similar things that you wanted to write up in an affirmation of material fact.

If you were able to include the topic for yer affirmation of material fact in the EOR, that's a good thing, IMO.

The material facts you mention above are supported by evidence like passport stamps and a marriage certificate. When you met online requires no evidence. Sounds like you want to write a brief evolution of relationship letter to include with your petition. If you do, update it before the interview.

Hello,

What I said before was a quick nutshell of our EOR. The Affirmation of Material Fact is more to say that the copy of my passport is an exact copy. For the EOR of course it is better written than the post before. I am just so nervous about all of this. Thank you.

Then you don't need the affirmation.

Ya, a letter of affirmation specifically about your passport copy is a waste of time, it'll show up on them background checks USCIS will be doing on you - don't sweat it.

Yeah, keep in mind that the CR-1 petition is itself an 'Affirmation', backed by major legal penalties against you (and your spouse) if fraud is found. Any other statements by you as to the truthfulness of what you have submitted, notorized or not, are completely redundant. The EOR letter helps them understand your relationship and that seems to be the real catch for visas from China...like Pushbrk and Darnell have stated...that is where the real value is...convincing them that you have a real, bonafide relationship.
