ROC Eveidence Questions

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

We are gathering items for my husband's ROC which can be submitted starting early May and have a couple of questions on what we have and don't have.

Evidence we have- Should we add or take anything away from this list?

  • A copy of marriage certificate
  • 2012, 2013, 2104 Tax returns showing we filed as married filing jointly
  • Bank statements from right after we got married in 2012 and I added him to my account to current date
  • Statements from my work showing he is my beneficiary on my life insurance (we don’t have any on him yet due to health reasons), 401K and Pension plan.
  • Car and Apartment insurance policies listing both of us
  • Medical, Dental and Vision ID cards listing both of us- I am the subscriber and my husband as the dependent.
  • Copy of Credit card that is both our names.
  • Copies of Credit cards statements we have separate, but shows our billing address to be the same.
  • Mail addressed to both of us.
  • Photos from 2012 to now showing us with family and or friends, or us taking trips.
  • Copy of my license and his driving permit- shows the same address
  • Copies of cell phone bill (old ones not in my name as billing person), but shows a family plan with my mom, sister, husband I listed as having phone numbers on the plan.

Evidence we don’t have- Will these be issues since we don’t have them for the below:

  • Apartment lease with both our names. We have a letter from the apartment manager showing my husband has lived here since we moved in shortly after we got married, as they wouldn’t add him because he wasn’t a permanent resident. Once he was, his credit was established yet, so they still would not have added him even with me on the lease (quirky I know). We have the first one when we submitted for AOS and then a new one from when he had an interview that was a year after the paperwork was submitted.
  • We don’t pay electric, heat or water as it is included in our rent, so no bills that way.
  • Phone/cable/internet bill is in my name only. I have tried to add my husband numerous times after we got married, but the company still has not added him and at this point would it be too late, as they won’t add him retroactive back to June 2012.

Thanks for helping :thumbs:

Marriage certificate is not necessary.

Landlord affidavit is a must for communal residence proof.

Other evidences are great.

Good luck.

You are fine even if you wont send them phone bills utility bills too... but I think it would be better to explain about leasing.. to them.. they will understand u.

I didnt send phone bills utility bills too because it wasnt my name and utility was included too.

phone bills.. it was family plan but its all my mother in law name.. so we couldnt do anything

Are you military?

Consider crafting wills, medical powers of attorney, and similar documents. These make excellent evidence for ROC, and they're even more crucial to have in "life."


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

Hey,

I already owned my house and have not changed the mortgage, so I didn't have that to show; however, the fact that the mail is coming to both of us at the same address and all of our accounts are listed on that address and the fact that he's my life insurance beneficiary should be ample. So fingers crossed for us that we don't get a request for more evidence on the simple fact that he isn't on my mortgage or that your husband isn't on the lease.

On another note, these evidences are so ridiculous because many of my "legitimately married" American friends have pre-nups, separation of property, separate bank accounts and yet they are still considered married. These laws and processes are so out of date with the Global world we're living in! (End Rant!)

Good luck with sending it off!! don't forget to send return receipt so you have proof.

I would choose to create wills anyway. You might accumulate property later.
