2.My Marriage certificate is from India and one side is the Declaration about my marriage with our photos and on the same marraige certificate on back side there is a stamps from the Ministry of External affairs , so should i submit the back and front copies of my MC seprately or should copy it as it is like front and back on same page exactly like my original MC.

. Copy of all pages of my U.S. passport – MM(Petitioner

. Copy of my Naturalization Certificate

You only need one or the other of these items, not both.

1.Do i have to submit any of my wifes document like birth certificate or her passport copies this is very important question for me and i need answer on this .

No, that comes later when your file is at the NVC.

2.My Marriage certificate is from India and one side is the Declaration about my marriage with our photos and on the same marraige certificate on back side there is a stamps from the Ministry of External affairs , so should i submit the back and front copies of my MC seprately or should copy it as it is like front and back on same page exactly like my original MC.

The part I placed in bold is my suggestion as to what you should do.

3. Can you please go through my Bonafide Marriage Evidence that i have submited and can you let me know the docs i am submiting should be fine or sumthing is missing.

What you have looks good.

5.Do i have to submit all pages of my US Passport or Just the Bio Page

See my previous answer above regarding passport and naturalization certificate. If you choose to use your US Passport, it would be a copy of all pages.

6.Overall do you think any document is missing from my side or my wifes side .

Except for her signed G-325A, nothing else is needed from her at this point.
