  • Form I-129F Petition for Alien Fiance(e) (if your fiance(e) has unmarried children who are under 21, they are eligible to accompany your fiance(e), but only if they are listed on this form.)
  • Evidence of your U.S. citizenship - your original U.S. birth certificate, your U.S. passport, your Certificate of Naturalization, or your Certificate of Citizenship. (Please see USCIS Form I-129F for information on the use of copies.)
  • 2 Form G-325A Biographic Data Sheets (one for you and one for your fiance(e))
  • One color photo of you and one of your fiance(e) taken within 30 days of filing (please see Form I-129F for more instructions on photos).
  • A copy of any divorce decrees, death certificates, or annulment decrees if either you or your fiance(e) have been previously married.
  • Proof of permission to marry if you or your fiance(e) are subject to any age restrictions. (For instance, in some U.S. states, you must receive special permission to marry if you are under the age of 16.)
