Hey guys. So the big day is a mere 48 hours away and obviously I am beyond nervous. For most of us, this is the biggest interview we'll ever go on because our lives with our loved ones hang in the balance. That being said, I have always been one to over-prepare, so here's what I'm bringing. Please leave me your thoughts and/or suggestions.

1. Everything on the interview letter (passports, driver license, USCIS documents, birth certificates, etc)

2. Reciepts and copies of most (couldnt find all of them) of my travels to Montreal to see Lisa. That includes bus tickets and plane tickets.

3. Reciepts and copies of most (couldnt find all of them) of Lisa's travels to NYC to see me. Includes her first visit, and last visit (with return ticket never used). Buses and airplanes.

4. Wedding - Our marriage certificate, receipt of engagement ring and wedding bands, wedding cards from friends and family.

5. Honeymoon - Plane tickets, receipts of a few things we bought (didnt save them all)

6. Taxes/Paystubs - Letter from employer, paystubs from the last 3 months (printed online since my company doesnt give out stubs to people with direct deposit anymore), W-2's from 2005, 2006, and 2007.

7. Joint assets - Phone bill, 2 checking accounts, 1 savings account, lease, invoice from the vet for our dog with both our names and address

8. Various things - Some hotel receipts from Montreal, dinner receipts. Aside from printing out a bank statement showing all the money I spent in Montreal, that's pretty much all I have.

9. Photos - Wedding album, Honeymoon album, and about 50 various pictures of us from the span of our relationship.

I have tons of emails that could be printed out, and I used to leave her a letter everytime I left to come back home that and she saved all of those. Should we bring those too?

How's my evidence look? Thanks!

I think you have plenty. One thing we were told was that receipts are not useful unless they show both our names (so your dinner receipts in Montreal may not be useful), and also. Also if you have any letters addressed to you both that might be handy (in the envelope sent too if available). Good luck, I'm sure it will go well.

Rememeber to take photocopies of things unless you dont mind them hanging on to the original. It came in handy for us.

That looks about like what we brought and they only looked through my wedding album, one bank statement, insurance documents and the booking info for our honeymoon (4 more weeks, I can't wait!). I kinda got the impression from our guy he was just asking to see stuff cause he had to. When we walked in he kept talking about "when I approve you" like it was a given since my husband is from the UK.

Looks good to me. I would sure take it all but have the lease, joint bank statement and utility bills most handy along with a few pictures.

Thanks for the replies, guys. I am bringing photocopies of everything and have them all arranged in folders. I will be seperating the most important stuff from the rest so its easy to hand over. Oh yea we also have our health insurance cards so we'll be bringing those.

Only thing I'm worried about is that when we moved, Lisa hadn't gotten her SS# yet, so the utility bills are only in my name. All the wedding cards are addressed to either our old address (which USCIS had on file) or my father's house (grandparents...what can I say heh), but we saved all the envelopes (mostly because we're sentimental geeks). We have yet to get any cards at our new address, only been here a month.

We had many things in my name only like the car. My drivers license was still my old one from WA while my wife has switched it to our new one in MD etc. So some things I think differences are understandable especially given that in your case your wife does not have her SS# yet. But if you can show you lived together at your old address etc (which we did too) I think it will be fine.

Thanks for the replies, guys. I am bringing photocopies of everything and have them all arranged in folders. I will be seperating the most important stuff from the rest so its easy to hand over. Oh yea we also have our health insurance cards so we'll be bringing those.
