Happily Married but Little "Proof"

Recommended Posts

Hi VJ. Wow, I can't believe it's coming up on two years since I was last here! I'm starting to pull together paperwork to file our ROC, and I'm coming up a little short. Hoping to get some advice...

My husband owns a business in Canada and commutes from the US everyday. When we got married, I already owned our house (and all of the utilities are already in my name) and because he had no US credit/income, his car is in my name as well. Because of his business, we do not have any joint bank or savings accounts. All of our assets are in my name alone. We also do not have children.

The only financial documents that tie us together are our tax returns, which I will send. We are also beneficiaries on each other's life insurance. I can show that we both get bills to the same residence, but our joint names do not appear on them.

We have lots of pictures, itineraries from trips, and can provide affidavits showing that we have been living as a married couple for the past 2 years.

I'm still afraid this is not enough.... I am not really interested in adding him to any of our assets, as we have been advised by a few different professionals (law, tax...etc) not to do so because of his business.

Does anyone have advice?

You can't send evidence that you don't have, so there is really nothing to be done. I would explain why you don't have certain things, and think hard about whether or not there are other things you could send. The worst case scenario is that you get an interview, and they ask you about your daily routines, which presumably you could answer easily. Good luck.
