Received a letter instructing me to submit for ROC

I was always told that no warnings/reminders/letters would be sent to let us know when it was time to file. Even my POE officer made sure to remind me I was on my own and needed to remember to file during my 90 day window. I put that date in my calendar back when I first did my POE so it would pop up to remind me in case I somehow forgot between then and now.

Needless to say, I opened the mail today to find 3 letters for myself and the kids. Each one (found this funny) saying that we needed to provide evidence that the marriage was entered legitimately etc and to prove that we are still together and with a list of suggested documents. I found it funny because the kids' letters were the exact same as mine regarding their marriages apparently :rofl:

It was kinda nice to receive the letters because it made me feel like OK, I'm still in their system. They know I exists here still. It also was nice to see the final bit saying that the interview may be waived if the evidence if sufficient enough to prove that it is a "good faith" marriage.

My package is just about ready to go. I have a few more pieces to add but it will be ready well in advance of my window opening up in a few weeks.

nothing to worry. i also got similar letters.

actually when my son got admission in college, they verified immi status with USCIS and somebody called my son from USCIS asking all these questions and told that later you need to apply for ROC.
