mine will be held on April, here is my check list. please feel free to add wutever you necessary.

1. all the docs that i have received from USCIS

2. my EADs and passport

3. birth certificates for both

4. marriage certificate

for supporting docs:

1. lease for landlord (he got one from stable (i paid for it) and have both names on)

2. life insurance which my wife is benificinary

3. share verizon phone bill

4. x-mas cards from friends

5. tax returns (2004, 2005) and w-2s

6. joint auto insurance

7. employment letters and two months pay checks and pay stubs.

8. photos (not many, maybe just one album)

9. we both have our own healthcare through our companies. so we didn't bother to add each other on.

10. now we don't have joint bank account, we used to have one, but since the branch moved far from where we live, we closed it about half year ago. will that be too late to open another joint bank account?

there is one problem concerns me alot, we don't have that many pics. since we both tight with works, my wife(USC) work most time during the Sats. and sundays we just go to her mom's house to visit. will that be a problem during the interview? for the wedding, we don't have big one, since my parents couldn't make the trip (visa problems).

any suggestions?

Don't worry about pictures too much. Our interviewer didn't even open the envelope containing pictures. We took 10 of them with us. Also, do take her insurance (and any visa credit/debit) cards to show you live together (same address) or if nothing else to establish that you are being 'normal'. Also, I had 3 years tax returns (attached to my I864) and I took a copy of my AOS packet as weel as K1 with me. He also looked at my passport to see the dates I visited her (so I suggest you take both your passports just in case.) Good luck
