DOES ANYONE HAVE THE SAME SITUATION BEFORE FILING I-751..?PLEASE TELL ME UR EXPERIENCED ABOUT THIS ISSUE SO WE KNOW WHAT'S AHEAD OF US..

I don't have a personal experience, but I know it happens for some peope while studying. Make sure you can prove joint ownership and finances and get affidavits from people who know you and can testify that you have a bone fide marriage.

You can even do a letter if you feel it helps. If you see each other at least on week-ends and all it should help.

That's right, they likely won't know unless you tell them. And honestly it's situation dependent, too. When I had my AOS interview, my wife and I lived in 2 separate states. But it made perfect sense for both of us not to move together yet since we were seniors at our respective universities. So if you intend to bring it up, make sure you have a very valid reason to back it up.


Wife's I-130:

03/15/2019 NOA1 (Nebraska Service Center)

02/11/2020 Case transferred to Vermont Service Center

02/02/2021 NOA2 الحمد لله

so when u guys filed the AOS u both used only one address..?cuz theres also question there (any address used for the past yr etc)..

I don't have a personal experience, but I know it happens for some peope while studying. Make sure you can prove joint ownership and finances and get affidavits from people who know you and can testify that you have a bone fide marriage.

If you keep the same address I think you should be OK!

THANK U GUYS FOR ANSWERING MY Q..i appreciate it..

If both your LEGAL addresses remain the same, and they should, you're OK with the I-751. If she goes out and gets a California drivers' license, then you have a problem.
