Proof of Domicile

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband is living in the US and I am a Canadian in the process of immigrating to the US. My case is completed at the National Visa Center and I am waiting for my interview at the Montreal Consulate. It has been a long two year process to date. I am in the process of getting my final paper work together for the interview and medical.

I need to get my police certificate done again since it has since expired and I needed to do it last July, 2014 for my DS260.

For a proof of domicile would my husbands "pay stub" from work be okay? It has his home address on it as well so proves he is both employed and living in the US. Also do I need his original divorce decree for the interview? I have mine.

I am not leaving anything to chance and am trying to be extremely thorough with my paperwork, I have read so many conflicting information on different sites so it can be so frustrating.

I just found out I don't need a Hep A and B for the medical...after I just purchased it :( The US immigration said I needed it but my panel physician said no.

I will so pleased when this whole thing is complete.

Did NVC or USCIS ask for his divorce decree? If they did, you don't need it. Reason you get conflicting informaiton is each country and embassy has different requirements. You will have to have copy (IRS trqanscript) of his last year's taxes. That will show address. If you want to be safe, ask him for a copy of driving license as address and photo are on there.

No they did not ask for it (divorce decree)...I read it somewhere :) Good suggestion for the driver's license but he just moved but it is changed on his work pay stub but it will take some time to get the license updated

Not related to proof of domicile or the AOS, you do need a divorce decree for the NVC or the Interview. You will want a court certified/embossed copy or the original in hand when you go for your interview

I do have a photocopy of my divorce decree (as I am the one immigrating to the US as my husband is a USC) I sent my original divorce decree last July, 2014 as it was required by the National Visa Center...to send in all my civil documents. I hope they did not lose it. They keep telling me my case is complete and they have all my necessary documents.


Do I need a copy of HIS divorce decree as well?

They probably wont need most of the things you're worried about but it is best to have it ALL, at our interview we brought in every scrap of paper we had accumulated and they didn't want to see any of it!! Honestly you've basically been approved already, the interview is just a formality. Take a deep breath and relax, you're almost through!!!!

I just found out I don't need a Hep A and B for the medical...after I just purchased it :( The US immigration said I needed it but my panel physician said no. I will so pleased when this whole thing is complete.

I would read Rob L's response because he speaking from personal experience. I also have another friend on VJ who has now been issued her visa but initially received 221g for the Original divorce decree document which had not been required by NVC. Every state's divorce decree paperwork looks different. We have all just come through dealing with MTL.Trust me while the interview is really not intimidating the documents are a big big deal. Better to be over prepared than to get a 221g. That's a black hole with no rhyme or reason.My hubby interviewed on 5/5 . We did not know until 2 days before his interview that he needed his original police certificate from his country of origin. He is a naturalized Canadian citizen and had not lived in his country of birth for 40 years but had lived there until he was 16. We had a valid Canadian certificate and NVC never check listed that we needed any other and we were never told we needed it until two days prior to the interview when we received an email from Montreal. We went to the interview anyway thinking that if we explained that we had not been made aware or asked for it then they would be lenient... Wrong!!He was given the 221g.We provided the missing document 2 weeks after the initial interview. It has taken 8 weeks for us to go through AP to ISSUE just yesterday.Even if NVC did not ask for a document and even if it says you do not need it b please review the Montreal Consulate's specific requirements. For proof of domicile I had a friend that they asked for a copy of her husband's Driver's license to proof that he lived where he said he did. So the pay stub may work but if he has anything that proves he actually lives at that address bring it. We had everything BUT the only thing they wanted to see was that original Police certificate.Don't stress about the interview just have your documents organized and answer only what you are asked. Good luck in this next step. Wishing you APPROVAL on the day you interview. :)

Thank you! I am taking this waiting time as an opportunity to collect everything I need...I am going tomorrow to get an updated police certificate as my last one expired last month (only good for a year) This whole process is unbelievable....nearly two long years and it is still not done. Our priority date is September 30, 2013 for the CR1 visa.
