Worried about evidence

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My boyfriend and I might end up getting married and filing for AOS soon, but we couldn't provide many of recommended proofs I see mentioned here. I'm not sure if our situation is unique or not, but this is it: we're currently long distance, living in two different states. I'm currently a student with no income, and he just graduated and is on his OPT grace period, so he also has no income. Upon moving here, he would live with me in my parent's home. (I know we'll need a joint sponsor, but one of his aunts or uncles should be able to do it.)

So, this means we couldn't provide tax returns (no income), insurance (I'm on my dad's and boyfriend has none), or joint lease/property. Co-mingling of finances would be difficult too. We could open a joint bank account once he's here, but wouldn't have many statements to show for it.

I do have the flight itineraries for both of the week-long trips I've taken to be with him in the past year, as well as a few miscellaneous receipts from them and photos of us. I could get affidavits from both of our families as well as a couple of long-time friends we met on one of the trips.

Any suggestions for other evidence we could provide in this situation?

Add this to wedding pics, wedding cards from family, e-mail and phone logs between each other. Explain your situation in brief on your cover letter. Then start to build more evidence like joint bank account, health insurance, credit cards and any other items that show your lives co-mingled. You should be ok.

Good Luck!
