COMMONLY REQUESTED SAMPLE DOCUMENTS FOR MARRIAGE BASED U.S. PERMANENT RESIDENCE

SAMPLE AFFIDAVIT IN SUPPORT OF YOUR MARRIAGE

Immigration Service requests that you submit evidence that you and your spouse are in a “bona fide” or true marriage. One way of showing this is to present Affidavits from neighbors, co-workers, friends and family members. Although not required, affidavits can increase the strength of your case. It is strongly suggested you obtain at least two or three affidavits. This is a sample letter, make sure that all of your letters are unique, ask your friends and family to write a letter from the heart.
