Should I submit an affidavits form? Do you think it is necessary?
We have all the required documents including marriage certificate, pictures of our wedding. 

 

Below is quoted from i130 instruction
"1. Affidavits sworn to or affirmed by third parties having personal knowledge of the bona fides of the marital relationship. Each affidavit must contain the full name and address of the person making the affidavit; date and place of birth of the person making the affidavit; and complete information and details explaining how the person acquired his or her knowledge of your marriage;"

I would not submit personal affidavits.  They are not beneficial, imo.  Concentrate on quality evidence of time spent together.

If you feel that your supporting evidence is weak or you think it may help you can submit it.  I don't think it's a waste of time.   I submitted affidavits from close friends who knew about  my relationship with my wife.

Got it, thank you. Me and my wife have submitted the document online, do you think we can add it in as "unsolicited evidences"?
Our friends would be very happy to do it for us

You can submit anything you want.  In my opinion, affidavits from third parties are weak at best, but generally make you look desperate.  They are not "unsolicited, as they must be notarized".   

 

Why don't you tell us what you DO have, so we can make meaningful suggestions for additions.
