How can I prove we have a real marriage for immigration purposes? 2 Answers as of February 03, 2011I have been on F-1 status since I came to the US with (B2) visitor visa and I had changed the status to F-1. Recently I got married to a US citizen in the US and filed the I-130 and I-485. Meanwhile I was taking off school but I have not finished the program yet because I tried to transfer to the other school and move to the other state because my husband has a new job over there. On other hand, he has an ex-wife in China had filed I-130 but not approved after a few years he got divorced on August 2010. In my case, what will the effect be regarding my interview and the processing time? We just recently moved to another state, should I need fill out the AR-11 or I can use the old address( his family's house)? How can I prove we have a real marriage?

Lot of questions here. With regard to proving a real marriage there are lots of ways - child's birth certificate, lease/ mortgage, bills together, assets together, joint health or car insurance, car titles, bank accounts together, credit cards together, loans together, pictures together besides at the wedding, joint tax return, receipts for travel together or to visit one another. Make sure your husband has withdrawn the I-130 he filed for first spouse. You are required to file the AR-11 and make sure you fill out part 2 so your case will be transferred to the District office in the state where you live. If you want assistance with the process you may call me to set up a consultation to properly advise you on these issues.
