Okay I've double checked with a few people on here BUT after breaking down again today with my husband, I want to double check my evidence list with you guys so I can finally get this package sent off on Monday. We're doing the wills on Monday which is why I am waiting until then to mail. He truly feels that we will be just fine and that I'm overly stressed out. I wanted to include another affidavit of marriage by my husband's best friend but I'm unsure if I should just get him to scan and email me a copy of it as I wasn't going to worry about him or the other affidavit being notarized.

  • Completed and signed Joint I-751 Petition
  • Attachment for all addresses and dates

  • Copy of Joint Water Utility bill from December 2014 – April 2015
  • Copy of Warranty Deed for Joint title on house
  • Copy of Bill of sale on jointly owned home

  • Letter from GEHA Health Insurance stating [Me] is covered by spouse's health insurance with copy of health insurance card

Any other utility bills? Cover one per quarter for the entire period. Insurance cards for the entire period since they renew every six months or so i think.

I can't get the other auto insurance cards... I do have auto policy declaration statements randomly from 2012 and 2013 though and can include those.

I have utility bills in my name (power and garbage) and other bills in his name (internet and cellphone) but before we moved into our house, his name was on the lease and all the bills from our apartment. I did sign the lease but my name wasn't on it.

In case anyone asks, no we don't have a joint credit card. He has one and I have one, from separate banks.

I sent all declaration pages of older policies, you can call them they can actually provide all info of older policies.

Well we don't have any banking activities at all so your checking and saving accounts are good enough.

No need 2 pictures, I believe it is enough with your evidences.

GOOD LUCK.

None of the utility companies here will add me to the account for whatever reason, so instead we pay them all directly from the joint account. That is great evidence if that is reflected in your joint account statements.

One other thing I have been thinking of that I haven't really seen around here: Text, call and Skype logs. My husband and I communicate like this almost every day while he is at work and I'm at home, talking about things like what we'll have for dinner tonight, mail that's arrived, what we'll do together at the weekend etc. It's really obvious from the content that we live together as husband and wife, so I think this would be good evidence too. Do you have anything like this?

Also, you mention joint car insurance but not titles. Did you forget those or do you hold separate ownership of cars?

And one last thing: Good luck! I'm really rooting for you :D


ROC from CR-1 visa (Green Card expiration date was Nov 24th 2016)

 

Link to the evidence I submitted. Be sure to send evidence spanning your entire marriage (especially for K-1) or as far back as you can. Just one or two bank statements will not cut it. I primarily focused on the two years of living here since I came in on a CR-1. If you don't have the fundamentals (i.e. joint accounts/policies), you can explain why in the covering letter. E.g. "While we do not have joint utilities, we both contribute to them from our joint bank account".

I'm submitting the entire bank statements and we do pay the bills from that bank account. I'm not on the title for our only vehicle as my husband bought it before I moved down. Next car is mine though. Lol

I didn't submit emails, skype, gtalk, or text for my I-130 and I'd prefer not to do it now. It may be weird with all that I'm sending but don't want to send private conversations.

See?

Yes i see. Lol. Thank you Steve.

Sent it away. Included some old policy declarations for the auto insurance. (spanning back to 2012)

YAY! The wait begins! I think it took longer to get all the wills etc notarized than anything else.


(just sent copies of the wills btw... but we just got them witnessed and notarized today.)
