    Answered . It is a letter written and filed along with an I-130 petition by a US citizen on behalf of an alien, based on a marriage that occured after the alien was placed into removal proceedings. If properly filed with supporting documentation, it can overcome the presumption that the alien contracted the marriage in question for the sole purpose of avoiding deportation.

    Answered . A letter/affidavit stating that the marriage was bona fide when entered into and requesting an exemption from the joint filing requirement. The letter must be accompanied with the proper petition/application.
