What are bona fides? What are good examples of bona fides?

bona fides examplesBona fides are pieces of paper that show that your relationship is real. Real means that you married each other because you wanted a life together, not because one of you paid the other to get married to get a green card. We have a long list of examples of “bona fides” that we give our clients. Sometimes it’s really easy for client to pull together lots of documents because they have years’ worth of joint bank statements, joint leases, joint health insurance, and much more. Sometimes, that’s not the case, and so we work with our clients to figure out what documents relevant to their lives tell their story on paper. In almost all cases, we help you prepare about 5 letters of support from family and friends who can attest that you got married to live a life with your loved one.
