AOS while Still Living with Parents

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My USC fiancee and I are planning to get married this month. We are planning to live in her parents house because we do not have the financial means. She is still a student and I am working under DACA. We will have her sister who makes way above the poverty line as a co-sponsor.

  • I have changed my address in my license, and personal bank account to her address
  • We made a joint bank account and credit card under her address
  • We are in the process of changing the electric, gas, cellphone, and phone bill to both our names and under her address

I don't know if the interviewing officer will find it strange that we are married and still living with her parents. Any suggestions?

No the officer won't find it strange that you guys live with her parents. Happens here quite a lot and they still get approved; however, you'll still need to gather as much bona fide marriage evidence like many others. You're doing good so far keep adding the most you can. Also have her parents send a notarized letter confirming you guys live there. By the way since you mentioned you're a DACA recipient, know you'll only be eligible for adjustment of status if you made an initial lawful entry in the U.S. (were inspected by an immigration officer). If you entered without inspection, you'll need to do consular processing overseas with a waiver, or use advance parole to make a lawful entry then proceed with adjustment of status.

How did you enter?

  • I have changed my address in my license, and personal bank account to her address
  • We made a joint bank account and credit card under her address
  • We are in the process of changing the electric, gas, cellphone, and phone bill to both our names and under her address

Might have hiccups with some of the above being out of status.

A young couple living with one of their parents is not strange. But what you wrote is somewhat strange and I will tell you why.

You say you are planning on living in her parents house. And also we are married and still living with her parents. Again, neither of those statements are strange. You also said repeatedly things like I am changing this and that to HER address, giving me the impression that your bride has been living in the home with her parents already and YOU will be moving in with them if you havent already. Again, nothing odd about that...It is strange however to have the electric and gas in the home changed over to the young married couple in the home. I am assuming currently the electric and gas are under the parents names as the homeowners are they not?

People dont usually give over utility bills to their children when they are 'letting them stay' at their homes to get on their feet when starting a new life. Its very strange (to me at least, not sure how the Officer would view it). Is it a two family home? A detached apt over the garage of some sort?

Yes, my fiancee is currently living with her parents and I will be moving in into their single-family house.

Since I have been working and I will be living in her parents house, I decided to help out her parents by paying some of the utility bills.

We wouldn't have switched the bills from her parents names to ours, but after reading numerous threads, it seems that the bills with both our names are rather necessary to prove cohabitation/bona fide marriage
