Basic questions for i751 package

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I am about to send through my i751 to remove the conditions of my perm residence which expires on July 24 2015.

I have some very basic and I dare some pretty dumb questions that I am hoping someone may be able to help with before I send it through.

1) Do I send one check or two (one for the form and the other for the bio metrics) also is it better to send personal checks or money orders?

2) Is the A number the USCIS# on the temp green card?

3) Do I need to send a passport size photo as I have done with all the other visa applications during the process? It doesn't say anything about this in the guide?

4) Do I need to send copies of the forms like I did with the original application (copy of passport, birth cert, marriage cert)?

5) Do I need to include any financial information from my original sponsor (my wife's father?)

Sorry these questions probably seem pretty self explanatory I just want to be sure I do not miss anything before I send the packet away.

Thanks so much in advance for your time.

David

Why would you include your father in laws tax returns?

Even if he was your joint sponsor it's not needed. You're proving a genuine marriage for the ROC.

Most people on this board recommend going back the full 24 months but sending only one statement per quarter,not every month.

It might help to highlight transactions and show how they prove actual co-mingling of funds. For example, "Joe's gym fees" and "Clothes Mary bought." Or "Electricity bill for joint residence." Best of all "Direct deposit of Joe's paycheck" and "Direct deposit of Mary's paycheck." Make it easy for them to see that the account is not just in both names, but actually used regularly by both of you.

Ah, I see, thanks for the help Tuckin!

We probably will not have a whole lot of that as we have separate accounts which we use individually for the most part they are just both in our names. We also have tax returns, lease agreements and pics though so hopefully that all helps.

I will send all 24 months in from both our accounts.

Thanks again for your time.

Can someone tell me if we need to write one check or two separate checks with the application?

Thanks.

David

Just one.

I think my package is just about ready to go, I have a couple of final questions I am wondering if someone has experience with

1) Are the sworn affidavits by family or friends are mandatory requirement or optional

2) How many months previous do we need to submit for our bank transactions? 6 months? the full 24 months since our last correspondence with USCIS? And do we just get the bank to print of our statements showing our transaction history?

We have lease agreements, joint insurance documents, pictures together, joint tax returns, joint bank accounts. I am hoping that we have enough to prove we are in a bonafide marriage but just to be as prepared as possible before we actually mail the package out.

Thanks so much for all your help.

1) Affidavits are optional. If you have them, good. If not, it's ok with sufficient other evidence

2) the bank statements (and other evidence) should span your entire marriage as much as possible. So to answer your question specifically, you want to send bank statements for the entire 2 years or longer. Some people here recommend sending quarterly statements (every 3months) to reduce the amount of paper. Make sure you send complete statements for the months you're sending that shows transactions and not just the 1st page.

Good luck!!!
