Proof of Residency

Hi folks.

Trish and I have just assembled the I-130 paperwook. Surprise surprise, it's very bulky. One final question I hope someone out there can help me with.

According to the checklist we have to supply "Proof of Residency". I have included a photocopy of the stamp in Trish's passport "given leave to remain in the UK for an indefinate period". But it has occured to me that the stamp in her passport may not be what they mean. By Proof of Residency, do they mean a tennancy aggreement, or a utility bill or something that prooves that she actually does live here?

Well, thats my question, thanks in advance for all the help I'm gonna get on this one... :whistle:

Regards Dave 'n Trish

The passport page is a good start, but I highly suggest putting in any other info you have that can prove the UK is her "permanent residence" i.e. a copy of your lease or mortgage with her name on it, utility bills, bank statements, proof of employment, etc. It also would be a good idea to have a copy of her LTR letter from the Home Office. (they can be sticklers about this stuff! ;) )

Good luck!! :thumbs:

Are you filing the I-130 to London? If so, you will find more folks who are doing the same posting to the DCF Forum :)

If you are filing to London, I encourage you to include a good sample of evidence of your USC's genuine residence in the UK. The ILR should be sufficient, but it can't hurt to include 2 or 3 items that show she's been really living there. Your ideas are good!

How Do I Remove The Conditions On Permanent Residence Based On Marriage?

Welcome to the United States: A Guide For New Immigrants

Yes, even this last one.. stuff in there that not even your USC knows.....

Here are more links that I love:
