Is my I-751 evidence good enough?

Hello,

It's that time where we need to file the I-751. So I'm trying to put together everything and looking for a little help on making sure I have everything correct and I'm providing enough evidence.

Here is the cover letter I have put together.

P.O. Box 10751
Laguna Niguel, CA 92607-1075

RE: I-751 JOINT PETITION TO REMOVE CONDITIONS OF STATUS ON:

(CR-1 VISA) name, A#

Dear USCIS examiner:

Enclosed please find a JOINT I-751 petition for removal of conditions of permanent resident status regarding name. name entered the US on a CR-1 visa in February 2013. We are all happily living together and request that this petition be accepted for removal of conditions on the residence of name.

Contents include the following documents, constituting a petition for the Removal of Conditions on the Residence of name:

  • Completed I-751 JOINT Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence.
  • Check for $590 to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
  • Photocopy of both sides of name Permanent Resident Card.
  • List of resided addresses

Enclosed also please find the following documents to verify the status of our marriage and ongoing relationship:

  • Copy of our 2013 joint US tax return transcript.
  • Copy of our health insurance cards showing a joint policy.
  • Copies of Joint Bank Account/Statements showing shared address, and joint account.
  • Copies of our lease agreements showing joint occupancy.
  • Copy of Driver's License/ID showing same address.
  • Copies of phone bill showing our numbers.
  • Affidavit from our parents. (who we also lived with)
  • Copy of our Marriage Certificate.

Copies of documents submitted are exact photocopies of unaltered documents and we understand that we may be required to submit original documents to an Immigration or Consular officer at a later date. Please advise us if you have any further questions or concerns related to this petition.

Sincerely,

Both names signed.

-----------------------------------------------------

Also couple questions that someone maybe able to help me with answering, please.

We only have one Affidavit from my parents who we also lived with once my wife came to the USA. But we have moved out and on our own now. Is this something we should add in even tho we only have one affidavit and its from family?

Last question is that, like many other people forgot to notify of address change. And I'm little worried that may be a problem. I just did the AR-11 online and I have the I-865 form all done and ready to send out this week. I put in a apology letter stating how we didn't know about the I-865 form until we started putting together the I-751 packet. Anyone think this will be a problem for us?

Thank you, and any help would be greatly appreciated.

PS: if there is anything else we could add to our cover letter that may be of help if what we have now isn't good enough, please let us know. :)

1- make sure to make the evidence cover the entire marriage.[ for ex. send a bank statement for each quarter]

2- what about 2012 taxes.

3- what about a rental lease agreement, if you lived with parents make them write an affidavit that you guys lived at their house with dates

4- Don't worry about the address part.

3- I stated in cover letter "Copies of our lease agreements showing joint occupancy". Should I add rental in there?

Should be sufficient, a few photos of you together in various social settings (labeled with date and a brief description) wouldn't hurt but are probably not essential.

Timeline

Looks good, but just as the hmh33 just said, try to add in some photos of yall.

I did approx 4 pages of photos, with each page having 3-5 photos each, everything from me and hubby to pic of of me and hubby's family and kiddos, etc

If you have a life insurance policy with each of you showing the other as the beneficiary, go ahead and include that also. Along with joint credit cards you may have. I was very thorough and not only did I include a quarterly statement of the credit cards, but I also color copied the actual cards themselves onto a page and included that also. I did this for every "card" that I had, from credit cards to membership cards,

Thank you, all for responding and helping. I'll be adding pictures also and how should I assemble the packet? should I just leave the papers all loose? clip them together or can I two hole punch them and use binder clips or something? or does it not really matter.

Doesn't matter. First thing they do is remove whatever binding mechanism you used.
