Question about how to organize Evidence and mention Evidence in the Cover Letter

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Disclaimer: I already looked at the pinned post from CookieCat

 

I will be mailing out my wife's ROC packet in 1-2 days. Besides the Completed and Signed I-751 form, my wife's ROC packet will include 10 pieces of evidence. 7 of these 10 pieces are only 1 page each. Admittedly there is not alot of evidence that we are sending. I assume that alot of you in your cover letters grouped your evidence as Exhibit A, Exhibit B, etc. This is not necessary, right? Also, how would I determine what to put in the Exhibit A pile versus what to put in the Exhibit B pile, etc.

 

Contents of the ROC Packet

-Money Order for $680 (Not sure exactly who to make it out to)

-Form I-751 Completed and Signed

-Marriage Certificate

-2 pages of Evidence Photos (8 in total)

-1 Hospital Receipt listing spouse

-Airfare Itinerary showing both of our names

-2 signed and notarized Affidavits

-Evidence of sharing same cell phone line

-2014 and 2015 Tax Return Transcript

-New York State ID Front and Back

-Green Card Front and Back

-New York State Health Insurance Document showing us living in the same place (not on the same Health Insurance though)

I just mentioned all the evidences I had on the cover sheet. I didn't group my evidences in piles or categories.

I didn't arrange things by labeled groups and just sent everything in one big loose pile (neatly organized with documents in the same order as listed on the cover letter).  We finally got approval after an RFE (due to moving 3 times during ROC, and they just wanted to ensure we moved together!).

 

Your evidence list is on the smaller side - do you two have anything like wills, powers of attorney documents, or work benefits statements showing the other spouse as beneficiary (like for life insurance)?  Most people also submit copies of joint bank/credit card statements.

Your evidence list is on the smaller side

1.) How did the USCIS know that you moved 3 times? You had already sent in the I-751 and were in the waiting phase, right? Did you just call them or send them a letter stating that you had moved three times?

 

2.) The list is on the smaller side, but that's all that we have as evidence. It's not ideal, but surely the USCIS can understand that not everyone was able to get this set up properly during the 2 year time span.

When we sent in our original I-751, it already showed we had 3 addresses at the time, with changes in auto insurance and utility bill statements.  They otherwise wouldn't normally know unless you tell them.  Oh, and the AR-11 we filed each time we moved, as that is required.

 

As for your evidence, I'd recommend your cover letter briefly explain that you've remained in a committed relationship and any circumstances which might help them to understand your specific situation.  But yes, you're correct in stating that not everyone has the same exact application packet!  The bottom line is that you have a bona fide marriage and are not doing anything illegal, so all will work out.  The number of denials during ROC are pretty darned low, so the stats are on your side!
