Evidence of Joint Occupancy of residence

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I/we have no mortgage and no rent payments, and of course no lease.........Anyone else in a similar situation? I've owned my home outright prior to marriage to my wife.

Although we do not have a prenup I'm a bit annoyed that the INS seems to suggest that it's a requirement to place her name on the deed to prove joint ownership.....This is clearly over the line IMO. If I should die, she's the beneficiary, and is entitled to all, however, if we should divorce then the house is premarital property.

This isn't something the INS should be getting involved in IMO....

What do you think?

I plan on submitting as evidence:

-2006 joint tax return, her 2007 W2 (don't have 2007 taxes done yet)

-life insurance with her as beneficiary

-joint checking account info

-401k beneficiary info

-automobile title(s) in both names

-her paystubs (with current address)

-some house utility bills in both names

-affadavits from neighbors

Enough?

My name isn't on our house deed or the mortgage either however, I have received invoices and paid bills that relate to maintaining the house (regular lawn service, getting a problem tree removed, signing work orders for work done at the house, etc.) and am including copies of those with our application. We are also including our wills which name each other as our beneficiaries as well as each other's executors.

I have the cats' (that moved with me from Canada) microchip information showing that this is their address and the receipts signed by me, plus our phone bills, bank statements, car loan documents, car insurance, car registration and credit card statements showing both of our names on the same accounts and the statements coming to our address.

My favourite pieces of evidence, however, are two letters from the IRS addressed to both of us for the tax returns in the year we married: they debated the alimony my husband paid to his ex-wife, so we had to gather all of the cheques (copies of both sides), copy of the divorce decree, proof of direct deposit of his military pension to her account, (she got a sweetheart settlement!! Grr.) etc., and I faxed it all in to them. (I also have the fax coversheet and receipt from the fax location included as well) They then sent us a letter addressed to both of us with their decision to allow the deduction as it was filed. (Phew! we think she didn't 'claim' all of it which is why our claim got challenged).

It is surprising where you can find evidence of your life together as a married couple (VBG).

We rent and have no mortgage and our landowner has really no lease agreement. We 're from small town USA . I included copies of our auto insurance, our IRA's and bank statements along with copies of our taxes for the last two years with our ADDRESS on all papers. Plus we sent abunch of pics and anniversary card along with 2 notarized affadavits..... I believe there was some paperwork even from the local church with our address on it. I think each situation is different and the USCIS must treat each situation differently. Wishing u the best!
