Establishing Domicile?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all, my wife's I-130 has been accepted and I am preparing to send the AOS $88 fee and send the required documentation. I just have a question about my domicile in the US. We were married in September 10, 2011 in Indonesia. I arrived in August, 2011, and have been staying here since we were married. I still have a job guaranteed in US, and will be sending an employment letter. My father will also be a joint sponsor for me. His home is where we will be staying. Is an employment letter and his address enough? Before I left America before I was not living with him. I just want to make sure I have enough evidence. Let me know guys, thanks!

Domicile in the USA are usually things like :

US bank account

US drivers license and insurance

US medical insurance

Home / apartment in the US - showing your mortgage or rental agreement, you have a home to go back to.

Utility bills in the US your paying

Voters registration

A job that is expecting you back/ one you are currently working at.

US taxes payed/ filed returns.

I don't know how strict they are in Indonesia but in Canada they want to see ALL of it, not just a job letter. They want to see your home, your bills, your license, your bank, your job etc. They are extremely strict.

Do you have anything to show that dad's address is your US address? Car registration? Bank statements? etc?

The promise of a new job may not be enough. Being on leave from a US job would be better. What are your circumstances?

Anh map, None of my mail would be going to his home, as I did not live with him prior to traveling to Indonesia. Also, I mis-worded my job situation. I have held that same job since April 2010, and will be returning there as soon as my wife gets her visa. Also, I have health and car insurance. I also have 2 cars which I own with my name on the title. I don't know if that changes the situation, just some stuff I forgot to add. Let me know guys, thanks again.

Edit: The car titles are registered under my previous address at which I no longer live. (lease finished in December).
