IS THIS ENOUGH EVIDENCE?

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys so here is a list of all the evidence I have:

  • Two years worth of our Savings Account statements. (We had separate checking until a month ago because of the I751 but then I found out through VJ that USCIS prefers to see statements from two years ago so I thought that it wasn't worth sending both or our checking account statements from a month ago because I don't want USCIS to question our marriage, or should I?)
  • Copy of a loan statement in both of our names (we got the loan the beginning of this year but we paid it off in march and I could only find one statement, is that ok?)
  • Copy of a Christmas card my cousin sent us from Chicago with both of our names on it
  • Copy of our Car Insurance in both of our names (the title is in my father's name, haven't changed it because it's expensive and now that I think about it I feel like I should have :( )
  • Copy of our lease agreement with both of our names on it
  • Copy of the light bill with my name on it and a copy of the Comcast bill with his name on it (water is included in the rent so no water bill, should I let USCIS know about this?)
  • Copy of our 2013 and 2014 income taxes that both were filed married and jointly
  • Photos (we haven't traveled but we do have birthday pictures, Christmas, family gatherings and etc, is that ok?)
  • Copy of a best buy credit card statement in both of our names (we had got the credit card from best buy a year ago but we never used it until this year to buy our tv, so we only have about 3 credit card statements, is that ok?)
  • Copy of both of our drivers licenses with the same address (I'm afraid to send this one because my old drivers license had my parent's address and it didn't expire till this year on my birthday in may so I hadn't changed mine and there is an "ISSUE DATE" on it dating in may of this year so I'm afraid they might look at that and have doubts, but we both still have our old drivers licenses with my parents address, should I send a copy of those as well?)
  • In addition to the above, when my husband got here in September 2013, we lived with my parents for about 8 months but in the beginning we stayed because my mother was sick with cancer and sadly past away in January of 2014, after that we stayed for a couple of months after that to help my father out with the bills (internet, cable light & water and they were all in his name/my mother's name) but we never paid rent, should I have my father write a letter stating those details as well as providing a copy of my mother's death certificate? If so, does it have to be notarized?
  • I can provide affidavits, one of them being my best friend and the other one either my father or my sister, are family members ok? Do the affidavits have to be notarized?

Please let me know your opinions/advice, I'd really appreciate it! Also keep in mind we are a young married couple, so we don't have much, we literally just started our lives and getting things little by little. I hope everything goes well for us!

Thank you!

Hello,

You seem to have some good stuff. Just make sure that the lease, utility bills, car insurance span the last 2 years and not just 1 recent copy.

Tax returns - I suggest sending tax transcripts. You can order them from www.irs.gov site.

If the auto title isn't in your names, I'd skip that. The car insurance is good.

As long as the Driver license shows the same address for both of you, that's good. This doesn't matter whether it was just issued. If your address isn't the same, I'd omit it.

Photos are light evidence, so if you're sending them, send a few that you have.

Affidavits are light evidence, you can get them notarized if you choose.

All the best!

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."

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!").

Thank you so much for your response :) but What about this question "In addition to the above, when my husband got here in September 2013, we lived with my parents for about 8 months but in the beginning we stayed because my mother was sick with cancer and sadly past away in January of 2014, after that we stayed for a couple of months after that to help my father out with the bills (internet, cable light & water and they were all in his name/my mother's name) but we never paid rent, should I have my father write a letter stating those details as well as providing a copy of my mother's death certificate? If so, does it have to be notarized?"

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."

Ok so If I print a medical power of attorney form and fill it out does it matter if it had lets just say todays date, would USCIS look at that or no? And does it have to be notarized? Thanks for your response! :)

If a legal form is provided, USCIS can notice whatever they want. The point is that the form has been provided.

See the instructions for whether the Medical PoA valid for your state of residence needs to be notarized or merely witnessed. Google is your friend.

Thank you TBone! And one last question, "In addition to the above, when my husband got here in September 2013, we lived with my parents for about 8 months but in the beginning we stayed because my mother was sick with cancer and sadly past away in January of 2014, after that we stayed for a couple of months after that to help my father out with the bills (internet, cable light & water and they were all in his name/my mother's name) but we never paid rent, should I have my father write a letter stating those details as well as providing a copy of my mother's death certificate?

I think it's okay to have your dad sign an affidavit regarding your marriage and that you lived with them for a period of time. I don't see a need to include your mom's death certifcate. Affidavits are light evidence but it doesn't hurt to have 1 or 2 if you wish. All the best!

Thank you so much for your response :) but What about this question "In addition to the above, when my husband got here in September 2013, we lived with my parents for about 8 months but in the beginning we stayed because my mother was sick with cancer and sadly past away in January of 2014, after that we stayed for a couple of months after that to help my father out with the bills (internet, cable light & water and they were all in his name/my mother's name) but we never paid rent, should I have my father write a letter stating those details as well as providing a copy of my mother's death certificate?

Regarding affidavits, an immigration attorney once told me that it's not necessary to send affidavits if all your other evidences are strong. However if you choose to send affidavits, it's better to have them notarized rather than send letters in order to avoid a request for evidence.

In your case, it won't hurt that your father writes an affidavit regarding your 8 months of living with him but if your father can't write an affidavit for whatever reason, you can simply disclose it yourself in a cover letter.
