Recommended Posts

Hello guys. I finished filling up the I 130 and I130A  and I have gathered all the documents that I have in preparation for the petition.(I am doing this for my husband who is the petitioner since he is busy working) Aside from the marriage certificate, Divorce /Annulment papers, joint lease of our Apartment outside the US where we lived for 16 years together, , joint account overseas which will be transferred soon to America, what else do we have to  send to USCIS as a proof of a bonafide marriage? Do I have to send more proof? Like photos together, travel iteniraries and boarding passes, unfortunately our past bills were all shredded so no proof of billings bearing both our names in it. Can I also use my oath taking certificate when I got my Israeli citizenship as a proof that my marriage with my husband is legitimate and recognized by the State of Israel who granted me  my  second citizenship? Please can anybody make this process easier for me? I am so overwhelmed ! I do not know  exactly know what I am doing. Please help.I did extensive reading online but it ended up confusing  me more so if anyone of you guys could make it simpler for me ,I do appreciate it a lot. Thank you

Your citizenship certificate doesn't show you're in a genuine relationship.  

Try sending things that show you've lived together and shared a life.  Yes photos, evidence of travels, even cards addressed to both can help.  You've lived together for 16 years and hopefully can provide evidence of that.

Thanks I'll take note of that
