    We met on Tinder while Matt was visiting. We didn't meet in person until 6 months later when he flew halfway across the world to meet me!

  1. Our status never changed. We didn't even know my husband got an interview waiver. We literally got the NOA2 letter saying congrats he would soon be getting his green card on the same day that he got his green card. This was only about a week and a half after we sent in the evidence they requested from us.
  2. Hi everyone. My husband got his green card without an interview! In early September, we received an RIFE for evidence we have a valid marriage (bank accounts, joint mail, joint taxes and so on). On September 29th we sent off our massive packet to Jacksonville with all of our evidence. And then on October 14th my husband got a letter saying he had been approved and that the card will come shortly. But the card was also in the mail! So happy! Wanted to share.
  3. Well we tried to find something like that online, but nothing applied to our situation. My mother rents from the woman who owns the house. We pay my mom to help her with that rent. And rent fluctuates each month depending on what we can give. So we weren't sure what to do about that.
  4. Thank you! Yes, it really would be nice! The letter specifically asks for all of the financial stuff that I listed- I didn't know those are things that are usually taken to the interview.
  5. Thanks for your reply! We included all the stuff they asked for in the original AOS packet- the I-485, affidavit of support, marriage certificate, passport photo, the I-94, and all of those things. My husband got his EAD in May so that's all set. We followed the guide on here and the instructions on the USCIS website, so I don't know why we got one. Also, I don't want to change my name and we don't have any posts on Facebook about our marriage- we're pretty private people and don't want to make a scene until we can afford a ceremony. Do you think that will count against us?
  6. Hello all, We are putting together our RFE packet to "prove we have a valid marriage" and that it wasn't just for immigration- lol as if! Wondering if you guys think we have enough financial documents? We rent from my mom so we don't have a lease or anything. We also have not had a ceremony or celebration yet- just keeping it low key until we can afford the big thing! But we do have 1. licenses showing the same address 2. pictures of our credit cards since we are authorized on each others. We have four cards, and each two have the same numbers. 3) picture of the car title and registration in our name. 4) bank account statements showing we each transfer each other money as well as my mother money for rent 5) my husband's credit card statements showing he uses his credit card that I'm authorized on for groceries and gas 6) statement from our joint savings account 7) a flight itinerary from when we went to a wedding as well as pictures 8) pictures and Facebook statues from all throughout our relationship 9) sworn affidavits from friends and family. Do you think this is enough? We talked about it, and don't want to have a joint checking account right now- just a personal preference. Surely this is not new to USCIS? I am hoping they will be understanding in knowing we are young and just starting out, so we don't have a house, property, or bills addressed to us yet (other than credit card bills.) Thanks for any advice.

  8. Banks are still closed all around town and I'm not sure if we can open a joint savings account online. I also don't know if it would look weird that our savings account would be at a different bank than the rest of our accounts. I was also advised that a checking account would be better than a savings- do you have any advice?
  9. Thanks! We didn't have a ceremony yet though. Just city hall so no one attended but us. My mom did notarize the certificate though. Do you have any advice on how to word this affidavit? Are they supposed to be mushy or more formal? So far no one has been able to help with wording or anything haha
  10. Hi everyone, My husband got an RFE last week, they are asking for documents to prove we have a valid marriage and that it wasn't for immigration (as if). One of the suggested documents is sworn affidavits by people with personal knowledge of the validity of the marriage, but we are having a hard time giving guidance to those who are writing them for us. They seem pretty formal (full name, DOB, address, place of birth) but ask how the person knows about the marriage. Some people have said to just gush, but in a sworn affidavit I'm not sure if that's the right direction? Does anyone have any examples or experiences with this? Thanks!

  12. Hi everyone, Last week my husband and I got an RFE for his green card asking to prove the validity of the marriage. We are in the process of getting the evidence together and have some questions that we can't find answers to. First of all, one of the suggested documents in the letter was a lease/rental agreement showing we both pay rent and live in the same place. We live with my mother who rents the house, and we give her money towards her rent and bills every month. We don't have utility, phone, or internet bills addressed to us because she is the one renting the house from the landlady. Does anyone know of a template for something like that? We want it in writing stating we pay her rent, but we also don't want to write up a lease agreement because she's not really sub-leasing the rooms. We live with her, we aren't her roommates but we do pay her to live here. How can we get this down in a way that is acceptable to UCSIS? Also, one of the other suggested documents are affidavits from people that know us certifying we are a couple and that they have known us. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to structure those document as well? Is it just a sort of letter? We are in the process of transferring one of the car titles to both our names, and are opening a joint bank account as soon as our bank opens (damage from Irma) and we are both authorized on each other's credit cards and have pictures of each card with the same number on it with our names on each one. We also have a flight itinerary from when we traveled together to RI and several pictures of us at a wedding we attended. We are not in a financial position to do much else- do you all think that evidence will be enough? Getting tired of proving to strangers that our love is real. Thanks.

  14. Bank of America. They are all closed today around us.
  15. Hi! We haven't responded yet because we don't have enough evidence- trying to open a joint bank account but all the local banks are closed here because of Hurricane Irma. My mom is going to write a lease agreement of sorts to say that we live together and pay rent to her. We have many many photos of us together that we submitted for the K1 in the first place, we didn't know we also needed to submit them for AOS. We have two cars, one in my moms name and one in my dad's name. We have no cards of congratulations because we only told few people and will have a big ceremony and party later on. We have no plans for this right now as we have no money. We don't event have rings. I am just upset that we keep having to prove to all these strangers at USCIS that we are a real married couple. We don't have a lot, but we're together and that's all we wanted.
