I-751: Is this information sufficient?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I have finally completed my comprehensive package of information!! :) Can someone please comment that I have everything covered? Thank you so much!!

Firstly, I will include a cover letter (still to prepare, but I see there is a template on here :)) and my completed I-751.

Secondly, here is my table of contents:

1) Copy of permanent residency card (front and back)

2) Birth certificate for child born to the marriage (along with supporting information to this)

3) Residential Lease

4) Affidavits (three in total - from family friends)

5) Financial Records

- 2014 & 2013 Tax Transcripts

- 2014 & 2013 W2 and tax return

- Joint Credit Card Account with Transaction History

- Joint Checking Account with Transaction History

I HAVE NOT included copies of our credit cards (although the visajourney advice notes suggest we should??) for security reasons - is this an essential item?

Is there anything else i should include in this section?

6) Travel

Captures evidence from two trips we have completed together. Evidence includes rental car receipts, boarding passes and pictures

7) Joint Documentation and Greeting Cards

Includes health insurance cards, our driving licenses (show the same residential address), car insurance cards, utilities, Sam's Club and greeting cards sent to us both.

8) Family Pictures

This section captures pictures from when my Green Card was awarded to the present time.

9) Cards of Affection to Each Other

Includes Birthday cards, Anniversary cards, Valentine's cards etc...

10) Additional address information

Includes items which were sent to us as individuals over the past year or so - all to our residential address.

Thanks for taking time to read!!

I'd replace the affidavits with copies of your wills and healthcare powers of attorney, but you seem to have a lot otherwise.

06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

In our initial submission we included joint credit card information, retirement accounts with my wife listed as beneficiary.

It seems that lately, the USCIS minions want as many "marriage bonafides" (their term) as possible. For our recent ROC RFE experience, the USCIS minion wanted ALL of the joint account financial records since the inception of the marriage. We also included wills, DPOAs, living wills, for each of us.

Our initial submission weighed in at around six pounds, the RFE follow-up submission came in at just under four pounds, we included everything 'cept the kitchen sink. Hopefully you won't get the micro-detail adjudicator that we ended up with.


Good luck on your immigration journey.

Completed: K1/K2 (271 days) - AOS/EAD/AP (134 days) - ROC (279 days)

Just remember - the evidence should be since the date of your marriage - not the date of your POE. Lots of people make this mistake....

You have nice evidence, but if you want a picky suggestion on organization, here goes.....

2014 & 2013 Tax Transcripts

2014 & 2013 W2 and tax return

Those are redundant. Pick the transcripts. Less paper bulk.

7) Joint Documents and Greeting cards

Greeting cards seem odd here. Better fit with the mail category #10.
