and i got a bio metric appointment like 3 weeks after sending my packet off

Very normal, even if the case takes a year to interview.

i wana do joint accounts ect but we dont wana do that stuff untill i get my EAD

Another mistake on your part

It says I-485 July 9, 2014.

That means that they are currently interviewing cases submitted last summer.

Having your name on the account does not mean you have to spend the money. Let him lock up the checkbooks and give him your debit card to hold if it makes you feel better. The reason USCIS wants to see joint money things is because people in it for fraudulent reasons would be reluctant to turn over their bank account or joint title to their car to someone they weren't committed to. Marriages that aren't "his money" and "her money" but OUR money, appear more genuine which is what you want to prove. It is one way to show as a couple you are in It together--for richer, for poorer, for better or worse. It's not the only way and I am sure you will have some things before interview.

It says I-485 July 9, 2014.

That means that they are currently interviewing cases submitted last summer.

But those include I-485 from a K-1, correct? Typically, those take around a year, but from non-K visas they usually only take 3-5 months. I checked out the Immigration Timelines (up top, menu) and the latest data is from 2014, so maybe something has changed in the last few months to slow down that office, I honestly don't know, but if I were the OP I would expect an interview much sooner.

OP, don't wait for your EAD to open a joint account, do it now. I received my EAD right before my interview.

No idea. I don't pay attention to timelines. I did not know all I-485 are not created equal. So you're saying someone adjusting from VWP gets priority processing for an interview over someone who did the K1 visa? Thanks for the info.

I don't know if it's priority processing, or just a different path. Most K-1's don't require an interview, anyway.
