I recently married my wife in China. I myself a U.S citizen and she a Chinese citizen am getting all the paper work to bring her to the United States. So is there any example of affifavits sworn from a family member? Does is need to be all in english because am going to ask my wife's father for this and he will likely write it in chinese.

First of all, you posted this in the K3 visa form, which is an almost always obsolete visa rarely granted- most likely you are going to go for the CR-1 spousal visa.

Secondly, affadavits from friends and family count for very little, because they are expected to write glowingly about you. You are better off with other bonafide proof, such as plane tickets and hotel receipts showing you spent significant time together, chat logs, phone bills, emails, and photos.

They want everything in english writing. If you're talking about him writing a letter to prove the marriage then it has to be done in english and typed out, then have him sign it.

However, I am told that letters proving the marriage have very little weight to the petition, so I would just stick with other things like copies of flight iteneraires, hotel confirmations, marriage certificate, photos from visits, the marriage, joint bank account information, lease agreements...just that kinda stuff :)

Not quite correct, a letter written in Chinese with an English translation and an attestation statement accompanying the translation is acceptable.

However, I am told that letters proving the marriage have very little weight to the petition, so I would just stick with other things like copies of flight iteneraires, hotel confirmations, marriage certificate, photos from visits, the marriage, joint bank account information, lease agreements...just that kinda stuff smile.png
