I have a question about a Request for Initial Evidence letter we received yesterday. We are filing for an adjustment of status (I-485) for my husband, who immigrated to the U.S. with a K-1 visa. All of the requested documentation in the RIE letter was provided during our initial filing, so I am not really sure how to proceed from here. The letter stated that we needed to provide the following:
1. A copy of my husband's birth certificate with a certified translation: a copy of my husband's Iranian birth certificate containing city of birth, his parents' names and their cities of birth, and the copy of the certified English translation (sealed and stamped) had all been sent.
2. Supporting tax documentation: I submitted a tax transcript for 2016, based on recommendations to use this instead of a tax return. I still included a copy of my W-2. I also explained that I had not filed taxes in 2015 and 2014, since I was a full time student (I am now a part time student). I also provided a copy of From 1098E from 2015 that my school had sent to me, as proof of being a student.
3. Evidence of assets to prove we meet 125% of the poverty guidelines: Since I had only been employed for 6 months when I filed my 2016 taxes, my total income did not meet the poverty guidelines. However, I provided 6 months worth of pay stubs as well as a letter for my employer confirming my salary (which DOES meet the poverty guidelines). I also included a letter from my bank that reflected my account balance over a 12 month period.
Any guidance and suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance for your help!!
