Your bona fide evidences are kind of weak in my opinion. You can go ahead and submit those, but your IO may give you an even harder time than mine did come interview time. I also had cards and travel records, but the IO kept asking for documents with both our names on it that were more than just "hearsay" - aka not from just friends and family. From your story I'm assuming you didn't have enough time to go get a bank account together and what not, but it's a good idea to be very prepared when it's time for your interview. Strengthen your bona fide evidence with documentation (the IO emphasized this so much during our interview) of your names together.

I485: You don't need the petitioners G325a or photos (this one is all about you).

I130: It is the USC who needs to fill this form and supplement birth certificate and/or copy of his passport (not you, the beneficiary).

You should also look look into supplying evidence of joint accounts, insurance etc.

Thanks for your reply.

Yeah i know but it's all I have right now. We tried to add my name to his bank account but the bank need a social security number that I don't have. We are thinking to get insurance together at the beginning of next year, hopefully insurance doesn't require me to have a social security number too. We're living in an apartment with other two roommates but we would like move soon next year so we'll able to have a lease with both our names on it

Ok, I'll change those things. Thank you

About marriage evidences as I replied before, yeah I know but it's all I have right now. We tried to add my name to his bank account but the bank need a social security number that I don't have.

do you have a statement saying who ever did the translations is fluent in both languages?

I tried to translate my passport and birth certificate by myself. It was pretty easy to do and I attached a kind of letter saying:

I, ......., certify that I am fluent in both the Italian and English languages, and that the attached document is an accurate translation of the document entitled “PASSAPORTO”

Name and last name

Signature

I had the same problem with not having a social security number, I wasn't able to get onto his account. Frustrating.

Can you get onto his health insurance, dental plan, and are you the benefactor for his life insurance? I included all of this as evidence in my package.

Joint memberships (even if it's just for the gym), and especially bills or other official mail to each/both names at the same address also help tremendously.

Or you can try another bank where that doesnt matter like TD bank or Bank of America I have accounts at both and my spouse has no SS. They gave him a year but I live in NY and banking laws can vary by state.

I agree with Chardon Ne. I have no Ssn yet but was able to open an account with Capital one, Bank of America and Chase. Bank of America is no issue . However for the two other banks, I had to negotiate and just let them know I was applying for a green card and would then update them with it as soon as I got it. Just try it out.
