So this part is rather confusing, and frankly, quite ridiculous. Anyway, my USC husband owns a business here in Sweden, which he will sell to fund our move back to the USA. We will use a co-sponsor, my FIL who also lives at the address we will be living at when we arrive (temp), the same address we are putting down on the I-130. We don't have a bank account in the US.No car, no bills, no insurances. NO job offer. BUT could we use the sale of the biz as a proof that we intend to establish one in the US? I know it sounds fluffy. But it's the truth. What else, make his parents write up a sort of 'lease' ? Buy a car from online? lol.. He does have a valid US DL. Anything else we can do?!

We do have two (school) children but intended to seek out a good place to start our new biz before enrolling them into a school, so we hope to move at a longer school break after one semester is finished. (i.e summer, or after christmas). Thanks for any help.

Sweden is FALLS UNDER EU. SO UR HUSBAND MUST HAVE PASSPORT. SO PASSPORT / DL AND HIS TIES WITH PARENTS IN US SHOULD BE ENOUGH TO PROVE DOMICLE.

Ok, so where exactly did you obtain this information? I am ahead of our process here, so I have no info really.

Furthermore, what he DOES have now is : DL (expires next year), Voter registrated (where does he get proof of it?) US Passport. Tax returns.

His voter registration card, state drivers license and any copies of receipts from shipping companies like DHL showing proof of having begun to ship over belongings (clothes he doesn't want to throw out, but can live without until you move) to his US address. Any proof of maintaining his US address...mail in his name at that address. These are things that should suffice in cases like his where there isn't much to show as proof.

I'm a USC living in Germany with my husband for almost 4 years now and I don't have much more to show as proof than your husband does. I'm not worried about it one bit, especially since I can go with my husband to his interview to clarify anything that raises their eyebrows.

Thanks S.O, I wasn't sure how much of an issue it may become. Only been gone 2.5 years, maybe that helps. Won't be shipping anything over unless it goes through regular mail service, so I doubt they'd care about that. But vote reg, passport, tax returns, maybe a letter from his parents stating we'll live there and intend to buy our own car helps.

We proved domicile at the embassy in Stockholm

Here is what we had:

I'd suggest you get a lease from the parents. Our final accepted by the embassy list had my soon to be house in America (will, probate documents, and title), bank account and credit cards with US addresses, driver's license, recently renewed library card, SS card, unexpired AAA card for the area I intend to live in, proof of being on my mother's car insurance for the past 6 years, etc.

I did not include proof of being registered to vote or voting because it was too much hassle and Stockholm is not Canada - they don't care that much.

We also included an email from the school district talking about enrollment for my daughter. Something like this should be sufficient for the school district the parents live in.


3/2/18  E-filed N-400 under 5 year rule

7/2019-12/2019 (Yes, 16- 21 months) Estimated time to interview MSP office.

We live in Sweden, so we don't have all that, except what I mentioned earlier. I will contact the embassy, maybe they can explain what they want.

Yes, I understand that - we were living in Denmark. It was ideas and easy enough ones for you to get. He can get a lease from his parents. His parents could easily put him on the car insurance, you can easily open a bank account from abroad with an online bank or credit card company, you can email the school district at your in-laws place of residence and ask about procedures for enrolling your child or print out their policies. Simple stuff.

Anyway, the reason you don't have any of the things I previously listed is that you have not fulfilled the steps required to "maintain or re-establish domicile." If you had taken steps to re-establish domicile, you'd have more proof than you currently do.

Okay, I will look into those things - thanks! I haven't fulfilled these things yet,, since I am actually way ahead, haven't even sent in the I-130 yet. I like to be prepared so now I know what to do.
