Reference Letters

I was thinking to add a few letters to our I-129F petition

- My boyfriend's parents own the building that he lives in so the technically are the landlords. I lived there from Dec - April. He doesn't have a lease so I wasn't added to the lease but I thought a letter from them saying I was there and they allowed me live there would be good? Should it be notarized?

- I had a friend from the US visit us in December, perhaps a letter from her? Including her E-ticket itinerary, copy of her passport ID page (showing her picture) and a picture of the 3 of us us together? Am I getting to carried away here?

I would also love to show some how our intent to marry. However, I am not sure how to do that? I think by the time he gets here we will just do a small ceremony, us and 2 witness type of thing.

I'm not sure what you're trying to prove with this letter. It's weak evidence of a relationship, and even weaker evidence that you've met within the past two years.

Evidence of a relationship isn't required with the petition, but some people like to frontload some relationship evidence with the petition because it can help if you're dealing with a difficult consulate. If that's your intention then don't overload your petition with too much evidence. A consular officer isn't going to spend more than 5 minutes looking at everything you include. Use that time wisely, and include only your very best evidence. Sworn affidavits from friends and family are at the bottom of the list when it comes to reliable relationship evidence.

Evidence you've met within two years is required, but an affidavit is tertiary evidence. It's useless if you don't have primary and secondary evidence, and unneeded if you do.

- I had a friend from the US visit us in December, perhaps a letter from her? Including her E-ticket itinerary, copy of her passport ID page (showing her picture) and a picture of the 3 of us us together? Am I getting to carried away here?

Again, what's the purpose of this?

I would also love to show some how our intent to marry. However, I am not sure how to do that? I think by the time he gets here we will just do a small ceremony, us and 2 witness type of thing.

The petition requires a signed original statement from each of you indicating your intention to marry. No further proof of your intention to marry is needed.
