I130 Adult children birth certificates are enough?

19 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm completing the documents to send the i130. I'm a citizen and I married 11 months ago with my children’s father after a 30- year relationship. We each had a marriage and divorce. My question is about evidence of marriage of good faith... the birth certificate of our adult children are enough?  We also have pictures of all these years.

What would birth certificates prove? That you had children once upon a time?  Were you married and divorced to other people during this 30 year relationship or has it been just monogamous the entire time?  Why not get married sooner than now?

A relationship that long should have something other than some photos and birth certificates.

Well we live together in the Usa for a few years, because we both separate from our other couples, but only recently we legalized those divorces with divorces.

You can put the children birth certificate

Joint Accounts

Photos

Travels

Did he had any bills in his name ? ( You can add that)

You can add affidavit of support letter explaining your timeline of the rship (One from each of you, Families, Friends)

If the children is how enough you can have them write one as well

Travels information

 

Honestly, I want to say this is the easy part but the interview is the monster.

Provide any evidence that is practical for you to provide.  Evidence of living together would be key.

What a quandry.  I wouldnt submit evidence that provides a relationship with your current spouse while you were living in a marital union with a previous spouse. But otherwise evidence that you currently live together or have a genuine relationship should be included.

Well, maybe I haven't explained the whole story. We had previous marriage but we did not live because we separated without legalizing divorce and in that time we lived both .

Neither USCIS, Consular Officers, or VJ members function as moral police.  Since the couple will be disclosing their addresses for the past five years, it is impossible to avoid disclosing they lived together while married to others, if it was in the past five years.

True story .It's a relationship for as long as they've been separated from the other spouse, regardless of legal status of said relationship.  Which means it may or may not be a 30 year old relationship.

It's pretty common. Took my mom 7 years to divorce my 1st step-dad.  It happens when you don't really care to do the paperwork.  

The question I had was, have you been in a monogamous relationship together for 30 years or during that 30 years were you married to other people?   If it has been just the two of you, for the last 30 years, then submit everything from the beginning.  If it's only been the two of you for X period of time (aka less than 30 years) submit from beginning of that part of your relationship.

Short relationships are also bona fide.  It is what it is.
