Hello everyone, this is our cover letter and I think everything looks good! In the Bona fide marriage we also include bus and flight tickets, calls, conversations and pics of all the times we came to see each other which were a lot. Thanks for Reading

Beneficiary’s birth certificate isn’t needed until NVC so it won’t do any good to include. Affidavit of support and affidavit testimonial letters for bona fide marriage are two different things but I’m assuming since you wrote (letters) that they’re testimonial letters about your relationship, which carry little to no weight. But just as a side note affidavit of support also isn’t needed until NVC and wouldn’t do any good to send now either. If you’re using a photocopy of your passport as proof of your US citizenship then make sure to include all pages iirc. Or you can use your birth certificate (if born in the US) or naturalization certificate (if born outside the US) instead as citizenship proof as you only need a photocopy of the front (and back if applicable) of those


Our CR1 Journey So Far:

Waiting for case to be sent to Department of State (NVC phase)

Wedding ring receipts are useless, don't bother with those.  Couples living in separate countries won't be expected to have joint bank accounts so I wouldn't stress trying to get one if you don't have one at this point in time.
