Example - I-751 Cover Letter

19 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

my my question is pretty soon I will be applying for I 751 and for last 2 years we have credit card transactions statement that reflects my name, spouse name and in laws name. But I haven't done any transaction in 21 statements but did in 3 statements. Though my name is reflected in each statement and under each name transactions are shown if they happened.

 

Should I send evidence of all 24 credit card statements?

Just a small item...if you are still married, and it looks like you are - YOU are not filing the petition - BOTH of you are filing the JOINT petition.  So you might want to change a lot of the "I"s to "we"s...

 

Good luck!

for utilities, do you have some in your name and some in your spouse's? This would show common residence even though not both of your names are listed. Looks like you have a pretty good list though. 

Caveat: I haven't gone through this yet.

As am individual who has researched and studied immigration's policies and procedures for years, I will allude to my colleague's comments on the pronoun "I" to "We" which was mentioned numerous times in your assertions. Howbeit, your evidence may not be as solid as a rock, but it has some key ingredients that United States Citizenship and Immigration Services' officials might want to consider in granting you 10 years Green Card; and that is the child bore within the union and perhaps, joint liabilities. There is no other way more conniving to uscis' officials in proving a legitimate relationship then having children or child. Don't get me wrong, there are other pieces of evidence so vital and influential in making a positive decision on your behalf. To sum up, I think you're good.

I’ve utilities under my name, parents name but none under my spouse name.

So I thought of skipping utilities all together.

 

Do you think it is still good idea to add evidence of utility under my name ? USCIS instructions says to show joint utility only.

If you have some bills in your name and other in hers then I don't think there's a issue here.

Thanks for reply. There are no bills under my spouse name.

 

One i can think of - is medical bills - where i am primary card holder, so bills under my name but it shows patients name as my spouse name. But i am not adding medical bills.

utilities are some parts of evidence; if not available for some logical reasons, there are some many ways to substantiate your relationship.  

Yeah. Since no utilities bill together, can't do much.

 

Is it okay to just send utility bill under my name ? will that be better than nothing ? or it may become pointer for RFE ?

On Part 1 - since I don't have middle name. My name wasn't auto populating on Part 7.

 

So I ended up in adding a space in middle name, now my name auto populates in Part 7. But it shows like this -

 

"R. . LastName"

 

Will this be still okay ?

 

in prior i-751 forms, it used to print full name. now it is printing first name initial. middle name initial. last name.

 

to be on safe side, just I don't want to use the old form even though it is valid until Feb 2017.

Do you know why there's no utility bill in her name? Is there any reason?

Before i got married, all utility bills were either under my name or parents name. After i got married, never thought of making any change there. So that's the reason.

(F)    Primary and Secondary Evidence     .                

 

           "  .... Closely related to the best evidence rule is the concept of primary and secondary evidence. Primary evidence is evidence which on its face proves a fact. For example, the divorce certificate is primary evidence of a divorce. Secondary evidence is evidence which makes it more likely that the fact sought to be proven by the primary evidence is true, but cannot do so on its own face, without any external reference. In the above example, church records showing that an individual was divorced at a certain time would be secondary evidence of the divorce". Utilities are secondary evidence. You have other key primary pieces of evidence right? use them and give reasons for the unavailability of utilities in her name.
