They actually asked me for this information when I went to my interview at the Cleveland office. I took documents similar to the ones to are mentioning so you should be OK.
Ok, thanks. I think we are fine. Maybe I'll throw some recent pictures from our trip to Vegas in my purse. But otherwise we are all set.
Ha, how about bringing in a 26,280 hour video that would cover the last three years of our marriages? Parts of that video may be considered R or even X rated, maybe it's only of interest to them to see those parts.
Why the weird thoughts on my part? Just have never been put in the position where I had to prove that I am married, so that put the wheels into motion as how this registered contract that is in the archives in our state capital isn't proof enough of a marriage. Health insurance is a very expensive proposition with many free additional benefits to married couples and especially with children. But do we have to bring in proof of our marriage to get those benefits? We were never asked for proof, just say we are married and have these children as dependents. Has the IRS every asked any of us for proof of marriage? Here we are talking big bucks in extra deductions by filing jointly that comes out of the IRS's pocket, so why aren't they asking for proof of marriage?
Utility bills is a ridiculous proof of marriage, I can buy a house, call them and tell them my name is Jack Jones and have all services connected, if Jack Jones doesn't pay his bill, service is cut off and a lean is put upon the address of that property. In like manner, I can call them without any proof that I married Jane, so add Jane Jones to my bill. Only company that is really doing a bit of checking is the cell phone company asking for the last four digits of my SS number that I gave them when I fist applied, that is 1234 by the way. Never was asked to show any ID and they do welcome cash, but you pay in advance for that service, so they don't have anything at risk. So why should they care for proof?
DVM never asked my wife to see her marriage certificate, at first she went in with her passport that had her maiden name on it and that work only SS card that we also got for her without proof of marriage. But in both cases, she used her married name, our marriage was never checked!
I met a friend of my wife last Friday, she's an immigrant going through the I-751 and her USC was with here. Immigration became a subject of conversation and they are in the position of RFE or lack of it. Husband was frustrated, he has a mortgage on his home and was put in the position to add his wife's name to the deed that would force him to refinance his home that would be very expensive for them. Wisconsin does have a communal law, once married half of everything he owns his hers with or without that deed and they are both liable for each others bills. Ha, want to make darn sure you are marrying the right person. But to make the USCIS happy, I added my wife to our deed, even though legally, it doesn't make any difference. But I didn't want to pay an attorney 500 bucks to do that. I worked very closely with my register of deeds, and she said many people have that same problem. But research on my part found how to get that form that I shared with her and she was very thankful for. Costs me ten bucks to have the new quit claim deed registered. Just retyped my old deed and transferred that from me to me and my wife, very simple, once you have the form the attorney's try to hide from the public.
Did that make a difference? No, if I were to die, wife would get my home, if we were to get a divorce, she would get half of it with her name either on the deed or off of it. All she needs is a copy of our marriage certificate.
Wife with no credit history in the USA had no difficulty getting a stack of credit cards simply because I told them she was my wife, never thought about that until immigration, they never asked to see our marriage certificate, but maybe we could stick them by just saying so as if we weren't married like we said we were, they could not hold me liable in a court of law.
It's only with immigration we had to prove and reprove, and reprove again that we were married and exactly how do you do that?
Ha, another temptation, and let's just leave it at that, just a crossing thought and I would never do anything like that, but for the third time, would only have to make one copy if I had a death certificate for my ex, not that 50 page printed on both sides copy of my divorce they wanted for the third time. And while my divorce is on public record in our county courthouse, still had to bring in the original plus other documentation for both my wife and myself before they would issue us a marriage license to prove we were free to get married. That took over two hours, maybe in some states, they pull a license out of a Cracker Jack box for ten bucks. Cost over a hundred here and besides the documentation, took two weeks to get it while they ran a background check. But that isn't enough for the USCIS.
Do you feel an X rated video would help?
