Evidence in Our I-751 Packet

Hi all,

We're planning on submitting our I-751 packet this week and want to make sure we have enough evidence! This is what we have so far:

  • Joint apartment lease spanning Apr. 08 - Feb. 09.
  • Joint apartment sublease agreement spanning Feb. 09 - Present.
  • Joint tax returns for 2008 and 2009.
  • Copies of joint credit cards, plus printouts of online account pages and monthly statements.
  • Copies of joint health insurance cards and printout of online account page.
  • Life insurance policies showing eachother as beneficiary.
  • Copies of drivers licenses showing the same address.
  • Various utility bills or printouts of online utility account pages showing joint accounts and/or same address.
  • Joint car insurance policy.
  • Joint renter's insurance policy.
  • Copies of joint checking account cards and statements.
  • Flight itineraries, boarding passes and hotel bills from trips taken together (Jun. 07, Dec. 08, Dec. 09).
  • 4 affidavits from friends and family.
  • Various photos from our wedding to present.
  • Various birthday, anniversary, holiday cards addressed to us both.

Couple of questions:

  • Is it better to submit evidence spanning the period since our AOS interview (Jul. 08) to present, or from our marriage (Oct. 07) to present?
  • How many bills or statements should we submit? We were thinking 4 per year for each account?

Any and all feedback is appreciated! :)

Thanks,

Buffertortoise

It's better to have proof spanning over the entire duration of the marriage.

4 per year is sufficient but Honestly an overkill (providing a monthly or bimonthly) won't hurt!

Also i forgot to mention, your evidence looks good.

First off, the evidence list looks very good. Covers many different accounts/bills/etc... which is what USCIS likes to see.

As for your two questions: sending in evidence should focus on since you became a CGC holder - but my wife and I sent in a few things that went back to AOS or even our photos went back to since we met.

For the second question, 4 per year should be just fine.

good luck

1. Your list looks very good. For ROC they usually want to see evidence since you became an LPR but it doesn'r hurt to go back to your AOS days and add stuff. You want to give uscis more than they ask so you cover all bases.

2. 4 per year will be just fine.

Don't forget to add copies of your card front and back and ofcourse the $545 to make them happy.

Just jumping into the thread for a moment...thanks for clarify that.

I was wondering how we would have anything to show for the year we were navigating USCIS prior to my move. I have been collecting evidence from my POE date forward, sounds like that should be okay.

You don't need to show that... they really care about since becoming a resident - since they consider this being the period where you should have evidence of a marriage... I wouldn't worry about anything prior to getting married and getting your AOS approved. Just wanted to provide you with my side of the story...

good luck!
