Do you have mails/letters/postcards/junk-mails which sent to you and him or to both of you? Showing you two are living together at the same address (more evidence)

Where is your husband's 2005 Tax Return?

Where is your I-693 Suppliment? (I am not sure you need this, since you were on B-1 Visa, someone can verify this please!!!

Where is his Paystubs?

You have absolutely no photos of you and his parents???? You don't need one with you and him and his parents, just any picture showing you with his mom/dad or both of them.

Few things I find troublesome: (trying to play the devil advocate, don't shoot me :) )

I don't know why the lawyer says "Passport and ID is good enough if you don't have BC". BC should be easy enough to obtain from your husband's birthplace courthouse, Vital Record office where they keep track of all marriage records/dead/birth. You will need to explain this at the interview if they ask. Maybe delaying your approval.

They may ask why didn't you two have a wedding already? What religious reason would stop ones from having a wedding?

Why don't you have any photos of you and his parents? Are you not living with him or don't know his parents? They could pick on you for this...

Otherwise, your package looks ok!!! Good luck!

i have the tax return with me and him both on it .2005 one. everything has our address on it where we both live so we dont need proof that we live at the same address.

ill double check for the birth certificate ... we must have it or else how did we apply for AOS ???

we didnt have enough money to get married in a huge wedding in the greek orthodox tradition to be married by the church means that you are married because they dont recognise you by the church and dont baptise your kids and funerals etc so we have to get married in agreek church.....so basically to married and greek you have to be married by the church or your not married at all

his parents have been in greece for six months and werent here for alot of the events .. they are very old and dont leave the house .. i know thats not an excuse but they arent very socialable .. i dont know what im going to do ..

i live in the same house with him and his parents i have been living here for 10 months ... and no photos i know its bad ...

now im really panicing .. advicee ....pleaase

ok just to add a spin on things :) we took TONS of photos the young lady never asked for ONE.... it may depend who you get... I couldnt believe she never wanted to see them.... all u have to keep in mind, once u have the things from the 'checklist" make sure you have things that have BOTH names on... be prepared for ANYTHING ya just never know. I have read so many different stories here it amazes me. I wish you the best of luck.


May God's Grace be all you will ever need ticker.png
