Too much evidence? Bank statements...

My wife and I have had joint checking and savings accounts since before we were even married in 2010. So, I have nearly 3 years of statements showing joint ownership and use of the bank accounts.

I'm getting ready to send off the I-751. I have probably 30 pages of good "other" evidence...tax returns, warranty deeds, insurance etc. but I printed over 200 pages of bank statements...one statement for each month since we are married. To be honest the package looks a bit ridiculous and I'm wondering if the officer will be annoyed that our package is so huge. Should I just send one statement per quarter for the last 2 years instead of one for every month for the last 36 months?

I had a similar dilemma with chat logs. I have chat records going back to 2006, so even if I printed just the preview lists from gmail, it would have been a book. I ended up just printing a single page of representative previews from each year, so it was just 6 pages instead of 100+

I can't tell you how well this will work... I just sent it in 2 weeks ago. But I assume that an overview demonstrating logevity should be convincing enough.

That looks a huge Package. You dont need to send statements for each month. Just select some random months from begining to now. Like any 3 months from each year(2010,2011,2012).

printing them ? printing bank statements?
change your printer driver, so you get 2 per page.
can get even more fancy, use front and back, so it's 4 printed pages per physical sheet o paper, front and back.

I say send em.

9) Official state of texas birth certificate for our daughter born in May of this year with our names as parents
10) Joint vehicle lease agreement for my wife's car
11) Affidavits from two co-workers testifying to the legitimacy of our marriage/relationship in Texas
12) State Farm liability insurance certificate for my wife's car showing both of our names
13) State Farm homeowner's insurance certificate showing coverage of our Austin home in both of our names

Don't give them every bank statement. Just give them the first and a last bank statement. This is enough evidence that you've kept your finances co-mingled.

Bsd, for removal of conditions, they specifically ask for documents spanning the years of your marriage, not just for first and last.

One a quarter sounds great to me.

First rule of 751 evidences: There is never too much evidences.

Send them, send them all. Heck, impress them! If they STILL send you a RFE then that's another story.

I agree with Harpa - One statement for each quarter. Other than that - as SteveD said, it is never too much evidence (my package, for example was about 5 inches thick). Nonetheless, your list sounds good to me, as it contains high quality pieces of evidence. Go ahead and send it. Good luck on your journey!

You decide what a reasonable amount of varied evidence is, from Primary. Secondary etc. a well balanced view of your life together from finances to vacation. Everyone had great advice.

In Arizona we can Keep our RIFLE's and HAND GUNS, no CCW required but a good idea.  Remember gun safety always!

Honestly I would use one statement from the beginning of the year, one middle of the year and one the end of the year to show you have been on the same account during three years

At one time we had a guy posting here who worked at VSC. He was also getting married. He said sending too much was annoying. He also said "just follow the instructions".
