arrowI-751 Request For Evidence (RFE) - No join bank account, incomplete tax returns?

Been reading this forum for a while and it's been really helpful, hope I can get some guidance on my case and that it will help others in the future! 

Here's my background: I got residency through marriage and recently submitted a I-751 to remove conditions and get a 10 year green card, but recently received a Request For Evidence RFE for the following reasons:

 

Tax returns submitted but not complete. Asking to submit all required schedules, statements and W-2 attachments of our Federal tax return. 

What is the correct way to attach our returns? I read it was http://www.irs.gov/Individuals/Get-Transcript and get "tax return transcripts" for the years in question, then attach any W-2's we have?

 

Not submitting a joint bank account statement

We have separate bank accounts, and like to keep our finances separate. All I can send the statements for our shared credit card account. Should I explain this in a cover letter?

 

Old electric bill, please submit current bills

The bill was for a previous residence, at our current residence my spouse is not on the lease and neither of our names are on the bill. I can put my spouse on the telephone bill and attach next months bill if that helps?

 

I'm only on a lease with my two other roommates, and we were also living apart for a while, not an ideal situation.

We hope to move soon and be able to get on the same lease, but probably need to send the RFE reply before that. Please advice :)

arrowInfo received by Moved from IR-1 ForumNVC Rep. Re: sending AOS & IV Packages - Is this accurate??

Hello All

I filed DS-261 a couple of weeks ago and paid AOS invoice (which showed as paid the following day). I recently read in a NVC Process Wiki Guide to call to confirm that the DS-261 was accepted and since my IV fee had not yet been invoiced I did so. I spoke to a rep who said that they recieved the DS-261 and will now process it since i had called- otherwise I am not sure how long it would have taken. The rep then told me that I should mail in my AOS Package and IV package NOW to expedite matters. I told him that the IV fee had not yet been invoiced and thus not paid and he told me that It is fine and actually better to send in BOTH packages now even though the IV fee is yet to be invoiced and paid. if I understand this right is it also not necessary to send with the IV Package- The Bar-coded cover sheet from payment portal- Since it is not available until the IV fee is invoiced and paid.  I am  posting this to see if anyone on this forum can verify that what I was told is true and whether I should send in the packages now or wait until the IV fee is invoiced and paid. Looking forward to your usual knowledgable responses.

Brace yourself people. This will be interesting how this time around how it effects processing for the rest of us.

 

 

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will expand Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals on Feb. 18, 2015. That will be the first day to request DACA under the revised guidelines established as part of President Obama’s recent anouncements on immigration.

 

USCIS advises the public to be extra careful to avoid immigration scams. To learn how to identify and report scams, and how to find authorized legal assistance at little or no cost, go to uscis.gov/avoidscams or uscis.gov/es/eviteestafas.

Go to uscis.gov/immigrationaction or uscis.gov/accionmigratoria and enter your email address to get updates whenever USCIS posts new content about the executive actions.

we don't have money for a lawyer right now for the process of green card, is there option to get work permit during this time ? 

I am of course legal here, the thing is my tourist visa expires at 2024 but my staying visa of 6 months expires at 1st march.
