Hi folks,

I was just wondering if I could get some input on our I-751 package and its completeness before I send it in. Have I forgotten anything?

  • Cover page / table of contents (basically a more verbose version of this list)
  • I-751 form
  • Copies of the passport (cover, front pages, executed K-1 visa and I-94), Permanent Resident card, Social Security card, and PA Driver's License (front and back) of Spoom (beneficiary)
  • Copy of ScooterMac's (USC / spouse) driver's license showing same address
  • Affidavit from ScooterMac's parents
  • Affidavit from ScooterMac's sister in law
  • Lease agreement and letter from ScooterMac's grandparents, our current landlords
  • Countersigned purchase contract for our new house (still in escrow, don't actually have the lease yet, I explain this on the cover page)
  • IRS tax return from 2010
  • Provisional IRS tax return from 2011 (I explain that we may have H&R Block redo it so it may not exactly match what we file, since the US Government just loves taking our moneys)
  • Signed letter from my company's president verifying my full time employment
  • Signed letter from my HR person verifying ScooterMac as primary beneficiary of my 401K
  • Copy of designation form showing designation of ScooterMac as primary beneficiary of the 401K
  • Copy of ScooterMac's 401K summary showing me as beneficiary
  • Signed letter from my HR person verifying my life insurance policy has ScooterMac as the beneficiary
  • Printout from life insurance website showing ScooterMac marked as beneficiary
  • First page of February 2012 statement of jointly-held bank account (I figure they don't need to know the details of every transaction, right?)
  • Auto insurance policy summary and identification cards showing joint auto policy covering both cars
  • Recent bill from Waste Management in my name
  • Summary letter of employee health insurance in my name covering ScooterMac
  • Scan of tickets from Cleveland Indians game (same game as a couple of the pictures also included)
  • Scan of various anniversary / birthday / Christmas cards addressed to both of us
  • About 28 pictures of us together throughout the last two years, with details on the back of each picture
Thanks!

I corrected a couple of things for you. No need for copies of passport, I-94 and SSA card. Other than that, you have a solid package. Good luck!

You will need to add more bank statements from the last 2 years. And from my experience, send the whole statement.
Also, send 4-5 utility bills from waste management covering the last 2 years.

Thanks for the feedback, will definitely be including more bank account statements and bills.

Will they really RFE for the full bank account statements if I only send cover pages? I'm not too concerned about the content of them but it'll be adding a bunch more paper to the package.

Some people sent full statements, others sent only letters signed by the bank manager showing joint usage of the account and when the account was opened. I chose to send full bank statements to show the usage of the bank account. You are right though, I ended up with a lot of paperwork, as we have 3 checking accounts and one savings...

In addition to more bank statements from various months within the two years, maybe add copies of debit/credit cards that show the same number for both of you. That's what they asked us to show at the AOS interview and luckily we had those with us, so this time around I sent a whole stack of bank statements + copies of all cards that we have in both names just to be on the safe side.


If you have joint title of any of the cars (or any other big purchase), you could send this as well, but it's not as important considering all the other stuff you are giving them.

We have a joint bank account but differently numbered cards. I honestly thought that was standard. No?

No shared titles on the cars unfortunately.

Hmm... this is the first time I hear of a joint account where the cards don't have the same number. We have a lot of accounts (bank + stores like Home Depot, Lowes, JCPenney, etc.) and all our cards have matching numbers. On the AOS interview, the USCIS officer specifically asked to see our joint account cards and said he was looking for the same number on both cards, of which he made copies there. You might want to get a letter from the bank explaining that it's a joint account with cards numbered this & this and maybe open a couple of joint store credit cards just to be on the safe side if they RFE you or ask for that on the interview later. It's just my personal experience though, it would be good to hear from other VJ-ers as well on this.

We have a joint checking business account and the numbers on our cards did not match at all.So what I did was going to the bank and having the manager sign a letter stating when was the account opened and who are the authorized users of the account.

Same with ours. I sent full copies of our bank statement with both names on them but I didn't send copies of the cards.

We have a few credit cards that have matching numbers, however. We sent copies of those since they aren't joint accounts, just authorized user situations.

Seriously though, I think what you have is fine.

We're sending it out today. I printed out more first pages of bank statements; one every six months for the life of the account, in addition to the oldest and newest statement. I also added more Waste Management bills. Hopefully that'll be enough!

Looks like we're in for a wait from the timelines. Oh well, we're pretty good about waiting (other than checking the USCIS update site every week obsessively).

Thanks folks!
