i-751 - Do I have enough evidence to file?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I think I am ready to file. Just wanted to confirm if I have enough evidence.

Few things to note:

1. During 1st year of our marriage, we lived in her mom's home. A month after our marriage, she sold the home but we stayed there as renter. I have a notarized statement from the landlord saying we were residing there.

2. All the utilities were still under her mom's name. So, I have nothing to show as common bill the first year. Should I get a statement from her mom stating that?

3. We don't really have a joint bank account. Meaning its basically inactive. So, not sure if there is any use of us showing it.

I would truly appreciate any feedback. And GOOD LUCK to everyone!! :)

Following is my application/documents:

Dear USCIS examiner:

Enclosed please find a JOINT I-751 petition for removal of conditions of permanent resident status regarding my husband. My husband and I are living happily together and request that this petition be accepted for removal of conditions on the residence of my husband Husband.

My comments are in blue. Have you made any power of attorney for health or wills? Those are valuable to you and your spouse and enhance your I-751 application. Good luck!

2. All the utilities were still under her mom's name. So, I have nothing to show as common bill the first year. Should I get a statement from her mom stating that? Yes, you can get mom's affidavit to explain this situation. OR you explain the situation yourself in a cover letter

3. We don't really have a joint bank account. Meaning its basically inactive. So, not sure if there is any use of us showing it. If there has been minimal activity, no point in including it.

I would truly appreciate any feedback. And GOOD LUCK to everyone!! :)

Thank You for your feedback. Much appreciated.

A follow-up question: Do I actually have to include statements for my health insurance? I was just gonna include copies of the card. Is that not enough?

Thanks again.
