I have a lot of clients that come to me with the same concern: they don’t have bona fides or “proof” that they are a married couple. USCIS requires that when you file an I-130 based on your marriage to a U.S. Citizen or green card holder that you must provide evidence that you are a married couple. The most popular proof of marriage are the following:
- Children born of the marriage
- Property held in both parties names
- Joint bank account
- Lease in the names of both parties
Frankly, a lot of people don’t have the above evidence. I know a number of married people who don’t have kids or a joint bank account. Because of this reality, the immigration service (USCIS) allows you to provide affidavits from people who know you and your spouse.
