  1. Pictures are considered secondary evidence. If you have other evidence of the bonafides of your marriage you should not have a problem. Only answer what the officer asks you. Good luck.

  2. Relax! Answer the IO's questions truthfully. In all likelihood you will be fine. If the officer needs more documents he'll let you mail them later.

    Have a great interview!


    (610) 664-6271. John Vandenberg focuses his practice solely on immigration law. You can keep up to date on immigration law by liking the firm on Facebook at His response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him, and does not constitute legal advice. Retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case, since that protects both you and the attorney. Mr. Vandenberg's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.

  3. You should be fine. If you have been married for 6 years, you should have plenty of other evidence that you can show the officer to prove the marriage is bona fide
