Got approved in two months and two weeks with very little evidence!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I just want to share my experience with you.I sent in my application to remove conditions in March 2010 and got approved in just over two month.I had my biometrics done and that was it.I sent in just two pieces of evidence,our joint bank account,the most recent,and our daughter's birth certificate.At my immigrant visa interview,I had a lot of evidence and the immigration officer did not look on one of them.Therefore, I decided not to bother this time.

Congratulations, Chavelle!

I've been preaching this forever, but many immigrants are simply intimidated by USCIS as an entity.

There are two requirements to remove conditions:

1) You are still married;

2) You still live together.

If you meet these two requirements, your application will be approved. All the applicant and their souse have to do is provide SOME paperwork to that effect.

Out of curiosity: how many sheets of paper (including everything) did you sent in?


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Congratulations on the quick approval.

Few questions though. You mean you didn't send TAXES for at least the last 2 years? No joint lease since these 2 items seem to be the most important to uscis. WOW that's nice. I guess it all depends on the IO who gets to handle your case. I beleive there are many people who sent same as you and still got RFE. Luck always play a part in these process. Congratulations once again. Enjoy your peace of mind.

Thanks! No, just the two pieces of evidence! I just looked at it this way;it is an application to remove conditions,not application for a visa.We are still married,still living together,and we have a child;what more is there to prove!

Congratulations, chavelle!

Congrats! :)

The USCIS works in mysterious ways. I'd like to think there are at least some standard guidelines for IO's on what type of evidence is considered sufficient and what lack of evidence should trigger an RFE. I don't know though, sometimes it seems like they are just throwing darts at the applications on who to RFE ;).

Congrats! That is so cool. I think that a child's birth certificate mattered. Mostly likely you guys live together with your child anyway.

Personal rant: Even though my wife wants a baby within next couple of years, she recently learned at work that she won't be getting any 'paid' maternity leave (not even 6 weeks you would get at Best Buy... her friend works there), which means it's not going to happen before neither do I have a job that pays and covers for everything nor I file I-751. Well, I guess I have to focus on "still married" and "living together" without any children.


Yes! I am approved!!! :)
