The northeast is giving headaches to people. If your AOS is through meeting spouse in US and then getting married here, I suggest taking lots of evidence even if you have receipts of gifts given to each other. At the least bank statements, apartment lease, insurance

Sounds good. Make copies of all original documents. If they want to keep the document and you don't have a copy they will take the original. Good luck! Lets us know how it goes tomorrow.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."
