gathering docs for AOS interview... TOMORROW

Hi everyone

so FINALLY the wait is up for me and my husband. We have our AOS interview tomorrow at 10:45 in Colorado. today I was taking a final look at the documents they have asked us to bring. I have put a BIG packet together of EVERYTHING. The only thing that worries me is that I am not on my husbands bank accounts. I do have a credit card from one of his accounts, but that's it. I have gone to the bank several times and they wont allow me to open an account or to get on his account yet, they keep saying they either need a state issued ID or my Green Card. so I will explain this tomorrow if they ask, but Im just wondering if this is going to make trouble for us.

I mean, we have LOTS of proof of our relationship: the house lease we are on together, tickets of travels we have gone to, pictures with his family and friends, letters and emails from family and friends, marriage certificate, our wedding invitation card, our wedding website and where we were registered... and so much more. so I am hoping that this bank account thing doesnt hold us up.

has anyone else been in this situation before???

I would't stress so much about it if you have other proofs of bona fide relationship. They can understand there are somethings you can't get done prior to having your social.

If he's added you to utility bills throw those in there. Anything that shows your name and address can be proof of residence : utility bills, driver's license, car and home insurance, if he added you as a beneficiary for his life insurance, if you're on the same health plan, got a cellphone, etc.

However I was able to get a joint bank account with Bank of American prior to getting my social. They would not issue me a credit card prior to having my social but I was allowed to obtain debit card. Depends where you live, I read some state laws do not allow it. Might want to check it out. If you do it today, you might show proof that you applied for one.

Good luck!
