immigration visa interview

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband has his interview on the 20th of May and I'm just worried about the supporting documents he needs to take with him...we have everything from the checklist (DS-2001):

our Birth Certificates

Passports

Marriage Certificates

Affidavit of Support

Medical exam

Police Certificates for the United Kingdom

Photographs

I feel like this is not enough?

I read somewhere that we should take things to show our marriage is legit... like to take bank statements, bills and things with both our names on it, pictures...

Should we take extra documents??? I've read somewhere to take bank statements, rental agreements (for our home), docs that support our marriage is bonafide...I'm sure it will be better to over prepare, right? Did anyone else take more documents than what was ticked off the checklist?

Also because I (the usc) have been living in the UK for almost 5 years I'm worried about my 'domicile' I have been applying for jobs (in the us) and i have emails i can print off that confirm my application....shall he take these?

I also have a couple of emails replying to enquiries about apartments we're interested in...we'll these be any good? I have copies of my 1040's and 2555EZ'...I have papers to show that I have applied for a Texas teaching certificate and been approved (still waiting for actual certificate to be mailed) will this be enough to show that i want to 're establish US domicile'?

....looks like this may be an issue and i'm worried now...

we rent so we cant show anything there... my UK residendcy visa is not in my new US passport....do u think that'll count for anything?

What about employment? They know I'm going to leave...shall I ask for some kind of letter?

we cant put the cars up for sell yet...

I've got 2 shipment qoutes (to move our things)!?

*sigh*

what do you think?

OH! and one more thing

i read somewhere that the spouse (me) doesnt have to go (to the interview) BUT can if they want to BUT then i read somewhere else that only my husband can go.... surely as i am the petitioner I need to be there????

thanks to anyone who takes their time to reply! x

WOW! I can't comment on the domicile question but the ideas of bringing extra things to the interview is a good idea. My wife had her interview in mid April and while she was not asked to produce additional documentation as to the validity of our marriage many others were. I think it is better to have supporting evidence that you don't need than to go and not have anything to add weight to you case.

Domicile is an issue - please review http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/164618-proving-domicile-when-not-living-in-the-us/

Whilst it's Canada, the issues are the same.

re: evidence of bonafide marriage - yup - time to generate UPDATED evidence - review the I-130 instructions - there's 6 types of evidence you were encouraged to submit , with the I-130 submittal, but you should really think about making an 'updated packet' to reflect your life together.

Here's what I did, ages past (review it, at least, for the list) -
