Just looking at the guides and I was a bit unclear so I thought I would ask. With the AOS packet we are not to send evidence of the relationship correct?

So then does this come later either when we bring it to the interview or sending it later if requested? What are some different examples of things we could supply for this? My husband and I are currently living with my mom so we don't really have a joint lease or joint bills at this point.

Thanks for the clarification!

No joint evidence needed with the I-485 submission... if and only if you have an interview will they request these items

I sent off my wife's A.O.S June 18th. I also front loaded this with proof of our marriage and relationship.Joint checking/savings account, My Last will and testament showing her in it,Joint safe deposit box,Primary beneficiary on my life insurance,401k plan and that she was added to my health insurance all with our names and address on the documents.

There is a 50/50 chance of having an interview for the A.O.S, Why not show this proof of marriage from the start. Very good chance they will see this and say no interview needed as proof has been shown. If interview is still required then it has hurt nothing to show the evidence early in the process.

Is it only 50/50 for those with a K1? We got married in the states and I applied to change my status. Will he have an interview for sure? Also sent plenty of evidence of relationship joint check, bank account, lease,rent payment stubs, pics etc.

From what I have researched for K1 Visa it is randomly selected as to who will have an interview for the A.O.S basically 50/50 chance.It does not hurt to front load the package with proof of evidence. I would assume this is the same for any type of visa that was used when applying for the A.O.S. I would have showed the proof no matter what type of visa we used. I made copies of the entire package that was sent. If we end up having an interview I will have copies of my package and more proof as I am still waiting on other things I requested to arrive that we will use to show our marriage and we live together at same address.

It's AROUND a 50/50 chance of interview. No-one knows the exact percentage.

I sent none and my case was transferred to CSC (best indicator for no interview). It's a complete waste with an AOS from a K1. if you WANT to, go ahead. It won't hurt anything but it MAY clog your file with unneeded documentation, making your case take longer to process.

Also, out of interest, as you are a K1 they are not expecting evidence. it's likely the drones that process your file won't even know what to do with it. As a K1 you got here and married within 90 days. Depending on how long it took you to AOS then it MIGHT be beneficial to send evidence, otherwise like I said, completely pointless for a K1 AOS applicant.

I also say no evidence with the application. Save it for the interview. It gives you more time to gather things showing joint assets. We did not send a shred of relationship/marriage evidence with the AOS. Futhermore I (USC female) didn't even change my name to his. We were transferred to CSC and thus no interview.

To SaraDee: People who AOS from a K1 have had a recent face-to-face interview for the visa and it's thought that's why they often forego the interview for AOS. In our case the visa interview was just 10 weeks or so before the AOS submission. If your AOS is based on sending the I-130 plus the AOS form because you both were already in the US, then you haven't had an interview. You definitely will have one.

I asked the same question ten days ago Here. I ended up sending 3 photos of our marriage ceremony, a photocopy of one letter addressed to me on our address, and a letter from my gradparents-in-law. That was it!

Good luck to you! :star:

and the responses were the same... other than the marriage certificate... NO other "relationship" evidence is required for the initial I-485. Which it appears you decided to go beyond that (which is fine as you are not harmed) but was not needed

HI! Amykathleen2005,

My Answer to your first question is Wrong.

You must Submit All evidence of your ongoing relationship, Love letter, Cards, Pictures of both of you while you are dating & the Pictures of your marriages , that is Strong Evidence that your relationship is True , I did All that , The day I Applied for my AOS, About you are currently living with your mom right now is not an Issue at this time,But having your Own home is beter because i heard that one of the IO looking to all the person I have re"d in this Site,Like Us, we are presently living in Apartment but we are hoping we can get the house before my Interview date Arrived but hoping i will not go to that Process, As much as the petitioner is has capability in Financial Proof/ Above Poverty Line, I think that is not a Problem at all. Good Luck, to your AOS Journey.,

This person is completely WRONG and appears they are applying the rules for applying for K1 VISA to when AOSing from one... and they aren't the same. Actually those might be the I-130 rules while in the US, or maybe the K3 rules or something.. just because of the reference to wedding pics....

Again, as a K1 AOS applicant you DO NOT NEED to submit anything like the PP wrote. Not to mention, the reference to owning your own home being good evidence is ludicrous. They don't care as long as you live together.

Also it is important to remember that some countries have higher fraud rates and are looked at more closely both when applying for the Visa, and AOSing.

I am not Applying the Rules Of K-1 Visa Applicant, I Just told them how to make thier Proof stronger, Because I have read so many like this ,who passthrough Interview had been denied Because of weak evidence, Go to Forum of AOS , A day before this Conversation , there is a Topic that you can read -Denied at Interview- , Well It is up to her , who she believe is? and I'm not Competing to any of you, because my motive is just to share what I learned from this Site that makes Very Helpful to me. Thank you .
