Working away from home

Good morning everyone!!

Ok need some thoughts from everyone. This is the deal. Me and my beautiful wife are getting ready to file the I-751 and all supporting documentation. We have affidavits, life insurance policies, 2 years worth of tax returns, joint bank account statements, and some other evidence alone with photos and such. BUT yes and there always a but. I got laid off last year, so I went back to work abroad as a government contractor. This is what I was doing when I met my wife. So right at the moment I am sitting in Afghanistan working. Well I have all documents done signed and will be sending them off to the lockbox. What do you think will happen if we get called in for a interview? Unless I can reschedule it for when I will be home she will have to go at it alone. You all think this would be a problem? Just looking for some thoughts on my scenario. Thanks again!!!

Chill and submit your I-751 application with all the evidence you have, which looks good. Don't worry about interview now - yes, if need one, you can always explain your case and get it rescheduled. But hope that you don't get to that point. All the best.

Tips: send full joint checking account statements at least one per quarter. Get IRS Joint Tax Transcripts. Joint Lease or Joint mortgage or letter/proof that you are living with parents, ... is very important.

Submit good documentation and there is little chance of an interview. Even so the interview invitation is NOT for you, it is for her. Unless you are specifically requested to be there you do no tneed to go and she can simply explain the situation and provide some documentation of your situation.

IF you get selected for an interview, and IF you are requested to be there then just GET THERE or re-schedule. Yes, it may mean the expense of a return trip for a few days. So what? But that is getting out there in the realm of possibilities.

Submit your I-751 and sleep well. Be careful out there.
