  • affidavit for removal of condition

    I am about to file I-751 to remove the condition from my permanent residentship (marriage based).
    I am required to present affidavits from at least 2 people who have known both of us (me and my husband) since my conditional residence was granted and have personal knowledge of our marriage and relationship.
    Could i use the affidavits from my parents-in-law since they truly know our relationship from the very beginning and the nature of our marriage?
    Could they be the only 2 people that give the affidavit?
    One of them is also gave an affidavit of support when i was filing initially.
    Also, do the affidavits need to be notarized?
    Thank you for any info.

    hi ukrainka and welcome
    yes you can use the affidavits from your parents in law
    yes they can be the only two if u dont have other friends or famiy members but i'll say to get at least 5 more will make it better. what about neighbors? friends at work?
    they dont need to be notarized but it's better if they are

      I think the more the better.
      It can be your families , your friends
      or neighbors.

      Yes they need to notarized them.

      Good Luck!

                I just wanted to add, the people that you choose may be also called to be interviewed by the USCIS to question them about your marriage, so choose carefully in case they are not willing to be interviewed.

                Doesn't happen often, but you can't rule it out.

                  You're not required to present affidavits, you include them if it helps to show that your marriage is bona fide.

                    It is on the list of the documents that should "cover but not limited to", i thought it meant " required".
                    Anyway, thank you all for your advice.

                      Hi Ukrainka, Mike is right... It is better to be notarized. In my case since I am divorced to my USC husband. I asked four of my friends who were in my wedding and had been witness to us until we broke up. I also asked a photocopy of thier U.S passport (front only) or passport number, place of birth and attached it to the affidavit.

                          Yes Mike .. They have to be notarized per instructions of uscis.

                          Sworn affidavits is the language used in description.

                          Sworn before a notary or some type of county official that it is a true statement tht is being made.

                          I-864 is an affadavit of support. This is the only form that needs to be notarized or sworn.

                          The fact that it is an affadavit implies such. The other way acceptable is to use a "under penalty of perjury declaration. Which also makes the person accountable for the statments made.

                          see definition:

                          <span class="ev_code_BLUE">affidavit</span> n. 1) any written document in which the signer swears under oath before a Notary Public or someone authorized to take oaths (like a County Clerk), that the statements in the document are true. 2) in many states a declaration under penalty of perjury, which does not require the oath-taking before a Notary is the equivalent of an affidavit.
