Questions before sending off DS 2001

Hi

I just have a couple of quick questions before sending off the DS 2001.

We ve pretty much got all the things they mentioned on their list (birth certificates, marriage certificate, police certificates..).

My husband (the sponsor)lives with me in the UK and doesn't have a job (and income or enough assets) sorted in the US so we got his mom to be our co-sponsor and fill out the I-864. Is that the right thing to do or does he still need to fill one out himself?

Also, I see people talking about the issue of re-establishing domicile.. I have not come across that in the embassy lists of things to do and get prove for - when does that come into play?

Lastly, it also doesn't mention having to bring any sort of prove of a bona fide relationship to the interview - I assume we should still do that and bring pictures, emails etc?

I was looking to send the DS 2001 off today as we are going on holiday tomorrow and it says it will take another 4 to 6 weeks until they give is the interview date (or is it that we will have the interview in 4-6 weeks' time?)but now I am having doubts about the stuff we need etc.. :(

Would really appreciate your help with the questions! Thanks so much!

Even without any money, he is still the primary sponsor and needs to fill out a I-864, including tax returns (or a letter stating why he was not required to file with the IRS if he was unemployed for the last three years.).

He will need to show that either he never abandoned US domicile or is intending to re-establish it; you will bring proof to the interview. I believe it is mentioned on the I-864, but it's been a while for me!

Yes, bring bonafide proofs, just in case. That being said, him living abroad with you is a big proof already, and many DCFers never get asked to show bonafides.

Thanks, thats very helpful. I assume we also need his mom to fill one an I-864 as well though?

He is still registered at his mom's address, has a a bank account, valid drivers license and has done postal votes - is that enough proof?

Thanks so much!

Yep, both of them will need to fill out a I-864 each plus send supporting docs.

What is enough for domicile depends on the consulate, Yours might be ok as Germany is relatively easy, but it is on the thin side. Has he voted while abroad, maybe has bills left in the USA (cell phone etc), put his furniture into storage, can showhe has been looking for a job and a place for you to live?
