MORE EVIDENCE NEEDED???

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

Hello All,

I am helping out a friend of mine to remove her conditions. We send out the following evidence in November 2009

Various Birthday and Valentines Cards

Copy of Marriage Certificate

Joint Tax Returns 2007-2008 (They were married in 2006)

Joint Checking and Savings Account

Her Paycheck to show proof of employment and address

Copy of both of their passports with Stamps showing they travelled together

Social Security Cards

Her Green Card

Her Learners Permit to show proof of address

JC Penny Credit Card Statement

3 Affidavits from family/friends explaining their relationship and knowledge of marriage etc

Various family pictures and wedding pictures

With all of this sent in they still sent a letter stating they they need MORE evidence.

Can someone help me out as to what else I can send?

They do not have medical insurance (can't afford it)

They do not have life insurance

they do not own a car

They only other piece of evidence that I have for them right now is a lease that we had written up. They live with his mother and brother but they do help out with the bills, grocery, mortgage for house etc.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Also, would sending in copies of their joint credit card help? They credit card is in his name but they both have a card under the same account.

Also keep in mind when we first sent in the evidence we showed more evidence for her and not for him

Again,

Any help will be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Mellie

Just browsing what you sent, I can sort of see why. SSN cards don't show they live together - all that shows is they each have a SS number. What about his driver's license along with her permit to show they are at the same address? Same goes for utility bills (some in her name, some in his)? All her paycheck stub shows is she works and where she lives - doesn't say much for him. Was the JCP card statement in both their names or just his/hers?

Use the checklist on VJ as a guide.

Think "Living/Cohabiting Together"

They live with Mom. What can they provide that shows they live with mom?

First:

  1. Show that Mom owns/rents the place
  2. Statement/affidavit from mom

Living together is critical (in my opinion).

I would provide taxes for the last year, and the cover letter explaining why they do not have insurance, lease etc. that is what we did. since we have separate insurance through our jobs and we have no credit cards together because we do not want to open those.

good luck

Sorry to hear about this, but with the list of evidence you provided, it sounds like it is missing some things your friend can add.

See my thoughts embedded in your question.

Various Birthday and Valentines Cards considered ok evidence

Copy of Marriage Certificate doesn't count

Joint Tax Returns 2007-2008 (They were married in 2006) excellent

Joint Checking and Savings Account excellent

Her Paycheck to show proof of employment and address the address part will be helpful only

Copy of both of their passports with Stamps showing they travelled together good

Social Security Cards doesn't count

Her Green Card required - but this is not considered evidence

Her Learners Permit to show proof of address good, but did the USC spouse send in a copy of their DL?

JC Penny Credit Card Statement does it show both names?

3 Affidavits from family/friends explaining their relationship and knowledge of marriage etc very good

Various family pictures and wedding pictures good

Also, would sending in copies of their joint credit card help? yes, yes and yes.

They credit card is in his name but they both have a card under the same account.

Also keep in mind when we first sent in the evidence we showed more evidence for her and not for him it needs to show as much as possible joint evidence. This shows USCIS that they live together and they share finances (most important) and social life

In general, make sure both names appear on all the things you send in. Also, if anything related to finances will create a bigger effect on their decision than social so keep this point in mind.

Some additional suggestions:

1. copy of their W2s for 2009 even if they didn't file taxes yet - this will show address on them and it will also show that they and uncle Sam understand each other.

2. Do they have any children? if yes, send copies of birth certificates. This shows that they are leading a normal life with a good marriage.

Thank you all for the help. I think we lacked showing JOINTNESS...(I know that's not a word but you guys understand what I mean)

I did this for myself a few years back but my husband and I had a child and a lot more things in our name together. My friend and her husband do not have very many things jointly. Which I have told them needs to change ;)

Thanks again,

Mellie

Not sure if this has being mention.

I would say the most glaring need would be UTILITY BILLS.
