  • Marriage certificate
  • Copy of photographs
  • Copies of our driver licenses
  • Copy of joint tax return (unsigned, got it from turbotax)
  • A few months of joint bank statements showing that I was the only one working and that my ex stole money from me
  • RFE:
  • Another cover letter
  • Complete bank statements covering the period we lived together with the following items distinguished:
  • Rent payments
  • Bill payments
  • My wages
  • Transfers to or from my ex
  • Transfers from ex's father
  • Payments for ex's student loans
  • Tax return payments
  • Cover page from NYS tax return check
  • Receipts for wedding and engagement rings
  • Receipts for various gifts
  • Prior I-130 RFE (similarly they questioned the bona fides of the marriage)
  • Request for a bona fide marriage exemption
  • Copy of receipt notice for a FOIA I filed for my I-130, which was unlikely to be processed by the time the RFE is due
  • College transcripts showing classes we had together
  • Print out from Turbotax showing that the taxes were filed, processed, and issued, matching the amounts on the previously submitted tax returns

Just note that I was previously in removal proceedings so my threshold of evidence went up from "Preponderance of evidence" (more likely than not, 51+%) to "Clear and convincing evidence" (75+%). I saw VAWAs get approved with less than my initial submission.
that's a lot of evidence, its nice though. but what did you submit to prove violence itself ?
