i-175 Documentation Questions

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was hoping to get some advice regarding my situation. I am filing my i-175. So far, the supporting documents I have are as follows:

1. Our joint health and car insurance, copy of both of our driver's licenses

2. Life insurance policy with each other as beneficiaries

3. Joint tax returns for 2013 and 2014

4. Affidavit of support from my brother-in-law and a friend

5. Documents showing our vacation together (email from travel agency, our boarding passes showing we flew together, hotel reservations)

6. Pictures of us together. Mostly with just her and I during our vacation and attached a few pictures with my family.

7. Lease with both of us on it - We moved twice last year and I have joint lease from both apartments.

8. Utility bill with both of our names on it

My biggest question is regarding our joint bank account. We had a joint account up until few months ago and then we had to close it because of some issues with the bank. So, I had my paychecks deposited to my wife's account and we've been paying all our house bills from that account. I have attached documents showing our previous joint account (statements from 1st 3 months and last 3 months) also, my paychecks being deposited directly to her account and statements from her bank account showing paychecks being deposited to her account.

Would that suffice? Should I even bother attaching them or the documents I have listed above are sufficient.

I would truly appreciate any advice regarding our situation and thank you all in advance. Good luck to everyone!!

Hi,

Regarding the joint bank statements, I'd suggest you send bank statement for every quarter (every 3 months) that you had the account open not just the 1st 3 and last 3 statements. They want to see ongoing stuff for the duration of marriage or conditional green card.

Regarding other evidence, do you have other utility bills in both names other than just 1? Also, be sure this is not just 1 bill statement but multiple bills that span at least 2 years.

All the best!

Thanks for the responses guys. Wrt utility bills, it is indeed just that one bills since the rest were taken care of by the apartment complex we were leasing. Also, there weren't much activities from the joint account anyways since we were both using our individual accounts for everything. How important is a joint account anyways?
