Asked about 3 years ago - Costa Mesa, CA

Hi, I know it says that the USCIS only require 1 piece of evidence to prove a bona fide marriage however, is it best to provide every piece of evidence we can? Should Photo's be included too? Any response is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Answered . Yes. You should provide all the evidence you have. Photos, love letters, affidavits from friends and family that have known both of you. If you lived together, provide proof of joint leases or bank accounts. Speak with an attorney if you are not sure if your application is strong.

    Answered . Depending on your circumstances, a lot more than you think could be required to explain the bona fides of your marriage. Remember, you bear the burden to prove that your marriage is in good faith. If there is any complication in your case, say, don't speak the same language, big age difference, met briefly before marrying.., you should retain a lawyer's assistance.
