Article Title: Proving Your Marriage to USCIS, Bona Fides in the 21st Century
Short Description: When you apply for a marriage-based green card, you must prove that the marriage is real. This means that the USCIS officer reviewing your alien relative petition, Form I-130, must be satisfied that you are a real couple. Before your adjustment of status application, Form I-485, can be approved, you must demonstrate with objective evidence that you are married in good faith and not for the purposes of circumventing immigration laws. Immigration officers often refer to a real marriage as a “good faith marriage” or “bona fide marriage.” Evidence of bona fide marriage is often called “bona fides.” The officer at your marriage-based green-card interview will ask you for bona fides of your relationship.
