Whether that's all you need depends on what kind of evidence, but the minimums are there and a couple things that are OK but not required.

Okay.  We have so many photos of various trips, wedding, flights, hotel stays, and evidence of us paying rent via electronic transfer to her (As well as me sending her money for day to day stuff when needed), that its taking awhile to get it all scanned. 

 

Would you happen to know when we would submit the I-864 (joint sponsor)?  Is that after all of this is sent and approved and sent to NVC?

 

Thanks again!!

from pushbrk's numbering,  #3 and #9 are not required (3 because you are e-filing, and 9 is an nvc part of AOS).

The i-864 is part of the NVC stage, affidavit of support (AOS).   which is also where the Domicile question comes into play.

 

Also would be helpful going forward if you add what country your spouse is coming from.

We both live and work in Beijing.  But she is an Egyptian national.

Be aware for the i-130 UCSIS stage all the documentation needs to be in English (or original plus have an English translation).   And for NVC/Embassy stage (if you continue to go for China), will need to be in Chinese or English.

 

To make it easier on others to help you going forward,  it is recommended you add the country (China) to your profile here, so the Chinese flag will show up when you post.

So we have gathered all the documents and everything that we need and plan to apply tonight or tomorrow morning.  I have one final question...

 

Our apartment lease is in Chinese.  Will we need to translate the whole lease?  or can we just submit the pages with the address and our names on it, untranslated?  Or do we need them to be officially translated?  We rent through Ziroom (for those of you familiar with China)

 

Oh, On the application can we use the Chinese character address or does that need to be translated into a western style address.   Chinese addresses are quite long and on the USCIS website, we translate it to English but it's way to long and doesn't fit.  We are going to include on the application the translated western style address.  Hopefully that is okay.

So I just talked with the company we rent through and they DO NOT have English version of the two leases we have.  So for the I-130 proof of bonafide marriage, will we need to have out apartment lease officially translated?  Can we translate just the parts that have our names and proof of address and possibly the monthly rent?

For things submitted to USCIS, they need to have an English translation.   At the NVC&Embassy stage they accept English or the local language.

 

"translation which the translator has certified as complete and accurate, and by the translator's certification that he or she is competent to translate from the foreign language into English"
