Proof of domicile letter

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Could I have some feedback on this letter? I've followed the example in files. Just want to make sure I haven't left anything out. This should be sufficient, right? I'll likely be back in the US before we get approval at NVC and definitely before hubby goes for the interview. I was planning on making sure that hubby has a couple current payslips from the job I will have in the US when he goes to the interview. Anything I'm missing?



Form I-864

Part 4, Question 5: Country of Domicile

I, KML, am currently residing in Australia with my spouse, JL. Below you will find a list of attached documents to show that my principal residence is in the US and the steps that I have taken to return to the US with my family.

Steps I have taken to maintain US Domicile:

  • Maintained my Citibank credit card registered in the US with a US mailing address
  • Maintained my Capital One credit card registered in the US with a US mailing address
  • Maintained my bank account at the EAC Credit Union
  • Maintained my Alabama drivers license

Supporting Documents for the above steps I have taken:

  • Citibank credit card statement showing US billing address
  • Capital One credit card statement showing US billing address
  • EAC Credit Union statement showing permanent US address
  • Alabama drivers license showing permanent US address

Steps I have taken to return to the US to take up residence:

  • Made arrangements for us to have a house to live in.
  • Accepted my father’s job offer at his business
  • Arranged for my mother to look after our child while we work.
  • Arranged for shipping of items back to the US.
  • Researching options for flights for our USC child and myself back to the US.

Supporting documents for the above steps I have taken:

  • Email from my father stating we are able to live with them indefinitely until we find our own place.
  • Email from my father offering me employment at his business.
  • Email from my mother stating she will look after our child while we work.
  • Copy of shipping inventory and packing slip from shipping company.
  • Quote for a flight back to the US for our child and myself.

My employment in Australia ends September 30, 2015. I will be returning to reside in the US by October 31, 2015. My spouse will remain in Australia until the approval of his visa.

I certify under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States that the statements in this letter and all accompanying evidence are true and correct.
