final questions re: proof of relationship

Recommended Posts

me again!!

well we got married yesterday! WHOOP!! and now we're just putting the packages together. gonna send them off tomorrow. just have one or two quick questions tho.

1. did anyone pay a crazy amount of money for the physical? i paid close on $300. i was baffled. but whatever. what's done is done.

2. seeing as how we got married yesterday and it's snowing like crazy outside, there is no way we can get a joint account or my name on any bills in time so we're thinking if the other "proof" we have will suffice for now. we will get the joint accounts and so forth in time for the interview. so far we have:

- pictures like you wont believe (with my folks in SA, with his folks from the wedding, trips we took, etc etc)

- plane tickets from trips we took

- how valid are facebook messages or screen shots of wall posts?

- emails

- a signed affidavit from the officiant at the wedding

i'm really hoping that this is enough initial evidence. oh for those of you who haven't read my previous posts, the reason for this rush is that my i-94 expires on friday and we'd like to get the paperwork out before the overstay becomes too big of a problem.

anyway, if anyone has any other solid advice to offer that'll be faaantastic.

thanks in advance :)

You will likely need more proof at the interview. But that is fine you will have time to go do thos other things like get a joint account etc after you filed but before the interview.

Civil surgeons figure they've got you over a barrel because you need that physical to adjust status. The prices tend to be more reasonable if you live in an area where there are a lot of civil surgeons - free market forces work to keep prices down. $300 is a lot, but I've heard of some civil surgeons who charge a LOT more.

You just got married, so it stands to reason you wouldn't have much evidence that you've merged your lives yet. The stuff you've got is fine to show you've had a relationship, but expect the IO to ask for more practical evidence at the interview - joint accounts, apartment lease, insurance policies, tax return - stuff like that.

BTW, did you actually get the medical before you got married? I have no idea whether that would be a problem. I've just never heard of anyone doing it that way before. Most people don't start prepping for the AOS until after they're married.

We did the medical before we were married. It's no problem.

Congrats on your marriage! My husband's medical was $255 - the bulk of the fees was for the lab work and testing. Our doc gave us a breakdown of the expenses and her fee was only $100.

Good luck with your filing.
