Hi all! Just a quick question regarding one of the requirements for removal of conditions which is the sworn statement of friends. Does it need to be notarized? 

 

Thanks!

Affidavits are weak evidence, and are not required.  I would opt for stronger evidence......but if used, USCIS says they should be notarized. 

 

This is what we sent:

 

Apartment lease with both our names & signatures
Periodic Joint bank checking acct statements since wife's arrival in June 2017.
Deed for new home with both our names
Mortgage Lender Letter with both our names.
Credit Cards showing both on joint account with same card number.
Amazon delivery label showing both names and our current address.
Wife's Military Dependent ID card showing me as the sponsor.
Tricare Eligibility Letter showing both of us together.
Military pay statement showing wife as my benefic.
Texas Health Care Directives appointing each other as sole health care proxy(Advanced Directives)
Our Texas driver's licenses with same address for both of us
2018 Joint Tax ReturnTax Returns 
Pictures of us on special occasions here in the US.
Car Insurance Cards showing both of us as insured drivers for our car
Boarding Passes for Las Vegas Valentine Day Trip 2019
Utility application showing both our names for our current address

Thank you! I asked a friend of mine who once filed this petition and is now a US citizen about this sworn statement of friends (at least two friends) and she told me that she didn't have that evidence during the time she filed and she said that this must be a new requirement. I have other stronger evidence such as some of those you listed above. Again thanks for the reply! :)
