Applying for AOS and the requirements....

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi.

Me and my husband are about to apply for AOS. My question is, is it enough that i have my name on a few bills here and there, or how important is the co-mingling finances part? Is it enoguh ,if really important, to have a joint savings account?

Thanks

Not to worry, the original AOS after marriage for a K-1 entrant doesn't need commingling of finances. They know it takes time to establish such things. But do work towards this as the standard expected to remove conditions two years later is much higher.

The only proof of marriage you need to send with the initial filing of AOS is a copy of your certified marriage certificate. If you happen to get an interview, then you can/should bring proof of co-habitation and co-mingling of finances and accounts.

But with one of the forms, it says you need to prove that you have a bonafide marriage, doesnt say anything that those proofs are needed for the interview...hmmm

On I 130 it says that

You entered the US with a K-1 visa. Why would you be filling out an I-130? That is not needed for AOS from a K-1. Follow this guide > http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1k3aos
