Hi Folks,

With regards to sending bank statements, did y'all just send the first page that has the names/address or all pages from each statement?

Thanks,

Kat

If the purpose being that you are showing continued evidence of a bonafide relationship... attaching the subsequent pages of the statement really does not ....

I attached banks statements for each quarter of each year we had been married - four years now and starting our 5th in June. So for 3 of the quarters for each year I attached just the first page showing it addressed to both of us, however for the 4th one submitted I attached the whole return showing activity of the account from me and activity on the account from my husband. I also alternated so that for the first year it was the 4th quarter; the 2nd year it was the 3rd quarter; the 3rd year it was the 2nd quarter and the 4th year it was the 1st quarter. I figured it would help to see that each of us also used the account and were not just listed on the account. If they want to see more statements or more activity they can send us an RFE.


“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

We just sent ours in today, and what we did was sent two mostly-full statements per year.

I think it's better to include at least some full statements to show that you actually use the joint accounts regularly for paying bills, withdrawing cash, etc., and did not just set up the accounts without using them. We also highlighted rent payments and other items on the statements as additional proof that we are living together.

We did exclude pages from the statements that were just informational and did not show any account activity.

We sent our today too and we only sent 1 bank statement from 2 different accounts and both pages. We didn't send them for each month or even year. But then we do have a mortgage, Wills, Life Insurance etc....so lots of strong evidence

My lawer said to send only first page of bank statements. It does show some activity-but the pupose (I was told) to show address. We sent about 3-4 statements of everything (credit card, bank, utility)-to show that we have been living together throughout marriage.

I read here that some folks actually cover with black marker all financial info for USCIS (and get approved). Some do not want to mingle finances and still get approved. Some have kids and still wait for approval and go through interviews. Go figure. I went with lawers advice-since I guess 20 years of experince means something.
