I'm new to this so please bear with me. I'm a US citizen and I'm applying for my wife to immigrate here using the file online tool on the USCIS site. I believe I have everything I need, I've submitted two affidavits from two people who were at our wedding in US a few years ago, the marriage certificate, my birth certificate, passport photos of both me and my wife, my passport, her i-130a and many photos of us together with both her family and my family.

My question is that next the form asks for additional evidence and I'l copy the text from the page:

 

"If a required document is unavailable, you must provide a typed or printed explanation of the reasons that document is unavailable and submit secondary evidence to establish eligibility. Secondary evidence must overcome the unavailability of the required documents. USCIS may request an original typed or printed statement from the appropriate government or other legal authority to support your claim that the documents are unavailable.

The following types of secondary evidence may be submitted to establish eligibility:

  • Religious record
  • School records
  • Census records
  • Written statements"

 

I assume I don't need this but I want to be to be sure. Really want to have here here asap and not go through any steps again. What do you all think?

I personally think you need to submit more evidence. Do you have your passport stamps or only the cover page of your passport? Any boarding tickets? (If you haven't saved them you can check your email or airline website), have you created any wills? Emergency contact at work? Copies of hotel receipts when you visited her? Just some suggestions.

Anything financial that has both of your names on it would be added value. Joint bank accounts, life insurance plans indicating you are each other's beneficiaries, joint credit card stuff, joint lease, etc... things like that count way more than affidavits from people.
