Well, this month we can finally file the I-751 and I've been collecting papers for that. Of course I've read what it says in the form about what kind of proof you can show of your relationship. I was just wondering if you think that this would be proof enough:

* Last two years' joint tax returns

* Utility bills in both of our names

* Joint bank account statements

* Joint health insurance

* Life insurace showing me as the sole beneficiary

* Boarding passes from trips we've taken together

I might be wrong on this but don't they normall ask for last 3 years ITR? Oh, and they might also ask for your marriage certificate, everything else looks good.

Also if you have any cards addressed to you both as a couple from the holidays or anniversaries would be something to add.


Everything I respond to is from personal knowledge, research or experience and I am in no means a lawyer or do I claim to be one. Everyone should read, research and be responsible for your own journey.

I don't know. I haven't really seen that mentioned anywhere and we've only filed our taxes together for the past two years, so I guess that'll have to do.

Thanks for your suggestion. :)

Yeah, we have some of those too. Thanks. :)

Most couples would only have 2 years Joint ITRs max.

Your list doesn't look too different from ours---auto insurance, or aything like that you can add? Social ties? (gym, costco other non-utility type stuff?)

There are several lists linked in the pinned post at the top of the forum if you want to compare.

Doesn't it come up quickly! :D


Now That You Are A Permanent Resident

How Do I Remove The Conditions On Permanent Residence Based On Marriage?

Welcome to the United States: A Guide For New Immigrants

Yes, even this last one.. stuff in there that not even your USC knows.....

Here are more links that I love:

Inertia. Is that the Greek god of 'can't be bothered'?

nakedice,

You're probably thinking of the (old) tax return requirement for the affidavit of support. Anette is undoubtedly thinking of using joint tax returns as evidence of co-mingled finances, not as evidence of ability to support (which is not required for removing conditions).

As meauxna points out, in the two years since LPR status was granted most people would only have two tax returns.

No, unfortunately I've been too much of a chicken to get a license yet. :blush: We usually just go running at the park and don't have a Costco card, so I can't really think of any other non-utility type stuff. Well, there's our insurance papers for the house, which I guess would work?

Time really does fly and I can't believe that it's almost time for this, but it'll be great once it's over with. ;)

You look good to go.

Relax

Good luck

Thanks. :)
