Documents must show that you were married. These documents must include the names of the people who were married and the date of the marriage. Documents you can submit:

  • Marriage certificate.

  • Marriage license.

  • Official public record of marriage.

  • Marriage affidavit or affidavit of support that’s signed and dated by the person who officiated the marriage or the official witness of the marriage.

  • Religious document.

You can upload more than one document if you have multiple documents to confirm marriage. Select the green "UPLOAD DOCUMENTS" button on the upload screen in your application to submit each document.

What if I don't have any of these documents?

You can submit a letter explaining the marriage and the reason you can’t provide documents. Use this form and fill out the “Marriage” section. When you complete the form, select “Letter of explanation” from the drop-down menu when you’re on the upload documents screen in the application.
