Have you read the VJ Guides and the form instructions? Have you clicked the links (atop every VJ page) called "Embassy Info" and "Reviews: Embassy" to see if your answer is there? Have you read through the appropriate regional subforum for your country to see if your answer is there?

If you still have questions after doing all these things, by all means post them.

I sent one not sure how much it contributed to my approval but at least it didn't hurt. The general view is that affidavits don't carry alot of weight but if you are really struggling to come up with evidence then I think it can only help your case. But no its not a must.

We sent two, but they are certainly not necessary. If you don't have the other items on the list, then it might be what you have for evidence. If the the beneficiary is from a high fraud country, it might help there as well. Good luck to you! :D

To file I-130, do I need to put the affidavits from the people who attended our marriage? Is this a must to do that?

Thank you.

Submission of such affidavits is not a requirement. Whether or not you choose to do so is up to you.
