Questions on PROOF OF RESIDENCY AND CHOICE OF AGENT

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

According to http://manila.usembassy.gov/wwwh3207.html

The U.S. Domicile Requirement for Petitioners

Your petitioner must live in the United States or in a U.S. territory or possession. If your petitioner does not, he or she cannot sponsor you for immigration to the United States.

You must convince the consular officer that your petitioner lives in the United States. To do this, you may provide the following:

A photograph of your petitioner holding a recent newspaper while at a location that clearly is in the United States (such as a U.S. Post Office);

current mortgage or bank statements showing your petitioner’s U.S. address;

certificates of employment, pay stubs, or utility bills in your petitioner’s name (phone, power, water, cable, Internet, etc.).

If your petitioner currently is not in the United States, and he/she is a U.S. citizen, he/she should provide a letter of intent to return with you to the United States. Petitioners who are legal permanent residents must be physically present in the United States.

Last Update ::03/22/2010

My husband (the US citizen) is currently in the Philippines so I think we'll just do the letter of intent to return. Has anyone done this before? My husband refuses to leave the country without me. I already feel bad for him because he misses home badly and the only reason he's in PI is me.

As for the choice of agent, can we just appoint my mother-in-law since she is the one residing in the States and also my co-sponsor in the AOS?

has he maintained any domicile in the usa?

can he show proof of a mortgage, deed or lease agreement in the usa?

if so - then he should be OK .

even when living overseas - is possible to handle all @ NVC - not need mother-in-law for choice of agent - but will need SOMEONE to monitor postal mail if any RFEs.

If you follow these steps -

not need to watch out for postal mail to the usa, except for any RFE.

Some Canadiens have this issue as well - they've covered ALL the issues on this, over at http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/164618-proving-domicile-when-not-living-in-the-us/
