Hi everyone,


I am currently waiting for my NOA2 for my case that I filed in August 2016.I am trying to put together the documents for the NVC phase and I wanted to make sure I had everything.My husband will be going through the Ghana embassy which is a very hard embassy. A little background on he and I. I am 21 and he is 29.We met on a Christian group page on Facebook in December 2015. My first visit was May 14-July 9th. We married at the registrar's office on June 28,2016. My family was not able to attend due to the death of my grandfather two weeks before our wedding. My second trip was December 9-Janurary 13 ,2017. He applied for a visitor's visa for a psychology convention but he did not finish the process because, his interview was rescheduled after the convention date.  This is what I have so far, for relationship evidence.Neither of us have been married, have children, filed any previous petitions, or committed any crimes. If you have any suggestions or advice that would be great. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Everything you've listed so far looks good. However, if you got married on your first trip and at the registery's office then I'm sorry they "might " give you a hard time. That has been a no no to that embassy of late. Secondly your family not being able to attend doesn't look good. Well each case is unique tho. Good luck on everything.
