Suggestions for Evidence

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

What are some suggestions for evidence of a marriage when the couple is currently living with a parent. At the moment my husband and I are living with my mom so we will not have anything like utility bills or a lease or anything. So far we do have a joint checking and I am trying to think of more things we could get or include to show our mingling assets.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Do you have a drivers licence or State ID (proof of living at same address)

collecting mail that is posted to you both at the same address.

cell phone bill in both names - you can add you name there without changing your plan. Just tell the phone company that your name needs to be on mail

affidavit from family and friends

proof of him paying your bills and vice versa

photos together

health insurance policy

life insurance policy showing each as beneficiary

Will showing beneficiary as each other

etc etc

We had the same problem, though it didn't turn out to be a problem in the end as we were approved without an interview.

We sent Joint bank account statements with it addressed to both of us. A few wedding photos, A few wedding card envelopes that were addressed to both of us, an affidavit from my dad stating that we do live here with him together. Also one from my mom stating that we are living together. Also sent copy of a few other things addressed to him showing his address and also to me showing the address is the same.

We were very afraid this wouldn't be enough, but my problem is I don't drive so didn't have a car or car insurance so nothing there to add his name to. And also my dad has all the bills in his name.

We sent no evidence of living together with the AOS/EAD/AP package, other than the marriage certificate to show we had met the terms of the K1 visa. We were approved without an interview and without RFE. The Instructions don't say to submit your relationship/co-mingling of assets with the application. You will be fine now without it, but you can start gathering things to take to an interview should you be called for one.

Going forward a little, if you look at the Removal of Conditions instructions, that does name some suggested evidence of co-mingling of a assets that should be submitted with the application. I think if they really wanted/needed that with the I-485, they would tell you in the instructions. I understand how people think if they cram their application full of extra stuff, it will be better for them. I'm just saying I don't particularly buy into that theory and the OP is worrying over something not on the list of requirements until the interview stage.
