Removal of conditions on CR-1

Hi everyone,

We know it's not time to remove conditions yet but expirience tells us to plan ahead. Right now we're a bit concerned we might not have enough "evidence" of a bona fide marriage.

We have no kids, no utility bills, no rent, no car payments, no health insurance or life insurance, no vacations we went on, no mortgage, no nothing.....

All we have is our car insurance and joint bank account - only husband's name on car title

Ever since we've been over here we just haven't been able to catch a break. And it's been a struggle just getting simple things like a SSN and a 4 months license. So we are really worried about having to remove conditions. Especially since we're pretty sure we won't be able to get our own place or anything before then.

So guys......any ideas???

get wills making each other beneficiaries

get letters of support from people who have known you and can attest to the fact that your marriage is bonafide

submit evidence of joint tax returns

are you renting? where are you living? what can you rustle up that proves you are living at the same place?

any letters/mail addressed to the both of you?

think outside of the box and try to round up anything that proves what they are looking for: that you have a bonafide ongoing relationship and a shared domicile.

We are currently living with his parents and have been doing so since we got here.

As for mail....that is all sent to a P.O. Box which we have been told won't prove anything.

We don't have any magazine subscriptions, gym memberships or anything of that kind. And again that would be sent to a P.O. Box....and the P.O. Box is not in our name.

We can most likely get an affidaviat from a family member but no friends or people we work with since they don't want immigration "all in their business".

Get a sworn affadavit from your parents explaining the living situation.

how about library memberships? I know ours requires that they have your civic address as opposed to the mailing address?

I have yet to hear of anyone who wrote affidavits getting immigration "all in their business" -- are they really that adamant that they won't help you in this way?

I have noticed that you have some time (at least two years) until you have to send in your petition to remove conditions -- you do have lots of time to collect evidence -- joint tax returns, insurance, other assets/liabilities, investments, wills, pictures, evidence of trips, maybe even a child? :) etc. Now that you are aware of what you don't have, start doing research (this forum has lots of excellent suggestions!) and focus on what you can get now and in the future. You have time!

You're right we have 1 year until we can start the process of removing my conditions. So right now we're just doing the research. Because we really don't want to end up having more problems than we have to. Especially since bad luck seems to be stalking us ;) We have be debating whether or not to just have a child now (since that would really help out) or wait another year or so.

As for the friends and stuff. Yes they are really that - i don't know what you want to call it - that they don't want to help. They didn't even want to give up their birthdays to our auto insurance company because that was none of their business. So you can imagine the struggle it was to find someone to sponsor me (actually had to pay a family member to do it)
