Naive hope that if i include it, ill be the 50% that doesn't need an interview.

But that's just my wishful thinking talking... and my dreams!

You don't need to include "evidence of mingling of finances and marriage" but no issue if you decide to do so.

It's up to you whether you want to include it. I'm now sure whether including evidence will have any bearing on whether you get an interview. I included no evidence, and I didn't get an interview. Most people don't include evidence since the forms don't specify it's needed.

However most people who are interviewed get their green cards much faster than those who have theirs waived. So even though it's a hassle having to attend an interview, at least you usually get the green card faster (depending on your local office). I wished that I'd had an interview, my green card took 8 months, and these days it can be even longer.

4. I-864 Affidavit of Support filed by USC with:

- copy of his birth certificate

- Tax forms for 2011/2012

- Extract of Payslips for the last 10 months

- IRS tax forms for 2011/12/13

What's the difference between 2 and 4?

The USC's birth certificate is not needed. Only for a joint sponsor.

I agree with Lainie that proof of co-mingling not needed. We also had no interview. We were only married 2-3 days when we applied so had nothing. Take to an interview and save for removing conditions.

That's my mess up on 2 and 4. He can't find his 2013 tax forms so I re-wrote it and forgot to take that part out. Thank you for pointing that out.

I thought I read somewhere that his birth certificate was needed, but I will remove that now that I know better.

Okay I'll go with what you have both said about the mingling, as you've both done it and have been around doing this for a much longer time than me!

I'll save those for ROC.

Thank you for your advice, This is exactly why I love this website and wanted to check before I made any mistakes.

Makes my package a whole lot smaller! and now cheaper, yay!

The point I was trying to get across, though I wasn't very clear in my earlier post, was that you shouldn't be too concerned if you do get an interview. At least you will get your green card sooner (in most cases). And from what I've seen here, the AOS interview is usually pretty stress-free.

Do you know you can have instant tax return transcripts? Get online and print at home. http://www.irs.gov/Individuals/Get-Transcript

Good choice because they come from the IRS and do not require all those pages of the tax return or a W-2 to go with it.

Also you are actually doing 3 applications, not one big one. I organized mine this way.

You were clear! It just feels like one more thing to worry and stress about. And with his job, it'd just be easier not to have one. But If we do get one, then I know it'll go fine, and maybe quicker like you say.

Hubby did mention something about doing those online, but hes big at procrastinating, especially when I've been trying to get this done for weeks! haha.

But im gonna make sure he does that today, thank you.

You list looks great, really simple and just straight to the point. Im gonna remove the numbers, and just bold each package individually.
