AOS Interview - evidence pre-marriage any use?

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts


I have my AOS interview (from K1) later in this month.

We have been a couple for 8.5 years and married in Oct 2015. I am the beneficiary. I have lots of evidence of our relationship - airline tickets, hotel bills, photographs, phone bills etc etc. but less so evidence since we were married. We are planning to move states in the next couple of months, so we weren't planning on changing any house lease, utility bill info at this time, but start afresh in a new location. My husband has everything in his name as he has been here for a couple of years. We also live in the middle of no-where and have no social life (it's fine -it's temporary!) so no-one who can validate our life as a married couple.

We are doing what we can with me being on my husbands credit card, veterans benefits - health & other, beneficary on life insurance etc.. should that suffice? I also have savings so don't need to rely on him for any cash so have my own US bank account, although my husband pays for the rent, household bills etc.. so he is supporting me. Once we move and I can work then that will change.

Is there any value in our 'pre-marriage' documentation? Or do they need to see everything since we married?

I can ask friends or family in my home country to state that we are a genuine couple, but I can see that that might not carry much weight as they have not 'physically witnessed' that we are living life happily as a married couple. Though have met us many times together pre-marriage.

We also married with no friends or family at the wedding - the way we always planned it - just our personal choice - so lots of photos of that , but no witnesses (other than the one the chapel provided). And no other photos as we have no social life/friends/ etc local. There's only so many selfies you can take - and they look so staged! And all the same - 2 faces on a screen - that's it!

I guess my question is should we do more and is pre-marriage documentation any help?

This site is so valuable - it has made the process possible and do-able - though overwhelming at times, without this site I think I would have made many errors and delays. Thanks to everyone for the knowledge I have gained!

Thank you
