thinking it'd do damage than good, coz we do have have seperate checking accounts, personal accounts that we get our pay checks deposited to but also have one shared account to pay common things like rent utilities at&t bill etc. but balance on it isn't that high, couple hundreads at most usually, sending this is a good idea or not?

It isn't about how much of a balance you keep in the account each month. They want to see that you have a joint account and share expenses. You should send statements from your joint account that span the entire length of your marriage.

List looks good.

I added the following in addition to the list you have:

- Drivers license showing same address

- Copy of your/spouse passports including the page of the entry/exit stamps of your vacation trip

Also, balance in the bank account is not critical but the financial commingling is what USICS is more focused on.

I added full bank statements with transaction view showing where was the money spent (obviously it was spent by both of you together which is better)

BJ's card statement etc..

Good Luck!

Cheers!

Send the form letter provided by your bank and the latest statement, 2/4 affidavits from friends and business associates, other cards and joint medical,life inusrance, 401k, Costco, AAA etc. See the interview with the USCIS Director in the Forum.


In Arizona its hot hot hot.

Quick comments,

  • Try to attach the full bank statements not just the front page, it helps to show joint living expenses such as food, grocey, etc..
  • if you and your wife received your W2/1099 to the same residence then i would attach copy of them as well.
  • Affidavits are mentioned in the I-751 instructions they are not mandatory but optional so i would attach them as well if possible, dont have to get them notarized.

Good Luck!

I have questions about how the packet would look "physically" when sending

Do I staple stuff by kind or do I just lay one sheet on top of other in order by dates/type without stapling or paperclipping?

Can I use ONe single giant clip to hold the packet together before putting it in an envelope?

Did you guys label each sheet of everything with the A# on top?

Fees:

It says $505 and $85 for biometrics.

I am assuming the above is for TOTAL fees. Not for each ( him and I ) I am only petitioning my husband no kids or etc.

Thanks for your help. I am trying to mail this week.

Use paper clips and binder clips -- no staples.

Otherwise, read the Guides and other threads in this forum.
