ROC evidence question.

Hey everyone, I just have a quick question regarding my wife's ROC application that I will be sending out next month. As far as the evidence goes, this is all I have. We live with my parents at this time until my wife finishes up school and I can save up enough to get our own place(around July 2015) hopefully.

We don't have any joint bills because that's all under my fathers name. I have the following evidence so far.

2013 tax transcripts/return-filed jointly.

Copy of our ID's & DL -showing same address

My life insurance with her as the primary beneficiary.

Our daughters birth certificate who was born here(U.S) about 6 months ago-showing us both as her parents.

Pictures of us together-on trips-with my family.

A cover letter explaining our situation.

Should we be expecting an RFE or interview? By the way, my wife was interviewed at her AOS stage and it went very smooth, we received the approval email about 2 hours after we left the interview. Thanks in advance for your inputs.

No chance of you having any joint accounts of any kind? Car insurance/title? Memberships like Costco/zoo/YMCA/etc? You might look into having a will written up as well, those are simple yet pretty solid proof of relationships. They really like to see joint financial ties, so without them I would think the chance of an RFE and/or interview is high.

With those evidences, you will get RFE definitively as well as an interview. It is sad to say, but child certificate is not really a comingling evidence (I know it is stupid.) You need to add those:

1. Old leases (if any) or affadavit of communial residence by your parent.

2. Car insurances, car registration.

3. Cover letter explains everything.

I can have a will written up, get an affadavit from parents, she doesn't drive so i can't put the car under her name. I will write a cover letter explaining everything. Anything else?

Mutual wills will be excellent evidence. Other such documents (often suggested or prepared by lawyers at the same time as a will) are a Medical Power of Attorney and a HIPAA release. See what other such documents you can add. Even more important than their helpfulness during the ROC process is to have them in "life."


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

Do you have any joint bank accounts or credit cards? You need as much co-mingling of finances as possible.

If no... Best open one up ASAP!! You can easily open up a prepaid credit card with both names on an account.

I would also suggest getting her life insurance policy with you as her beneficiary. Again, very easy to open one up online and pay the few dollars a month.

Also, join AAA, and you can get yourself and her, covered, they'll issue yall both a AAA card each. She doesn't need a license for this.

Have health insurance? Easy to open up an account online with both your names on there. While it may take a while to get the actual insurance cards, no matter, just print out the application you filled in along with the confirmation of coverage .... And in your cover letter you can state that yall just opened one up together see attached application which shows this.

I would also suggest getting at least 2 affidavits - one from a family member and one from a friend.

And coz your living with your parents, have them write up a "rental agreement" which both you and wifey will sign, as well as parents, as I'm sure you are adding some kind of money towards the family home (whether it be food bills, electricity, etc) so you do have a "$" amount you can list for rent. It will also show the dates took which will also help as evidence. You can easily find lease examples on google!

Hope all this helps! Everything I've listed above is what me and hubby did when I was going thru ROC. Had no RFE and no issues with the process!

Opening joint accounts at this moment is neccessarily useless. In USCIS perspective, it will look you are trying to cook up some evidences to avoid an interview.

Oh & I forgot to mention the tax returns/transcripts from 2013 which we filed jointly. I will be filing taxes again this year(jointly) but I'm sending out the package before that.
