List of Evidence for Removing Conditions for my Spouse

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

It is almost time for me to start compiling evidences to remove my wife 2 years conditional green card. I have until November to finalize the list but I was wondering if my list is good enough.

  • Copies of the Vietnam passports and USA green cards of my wife
  • Copy of basic rent agreement of residential lease while in Woodridge, Illinois
  • Copy of lease agreement from Son-Rise property management in Bellingham, Washington
  • Copy of lease agreement from Arbor Park property management in Mt Vernon, Washington
  • Copy of the tax records filing jointly for 2014 and 2015
  • Three sworn affidavits by U.S. citizen friends, attesting to our relationship and marriage.
  • Letter from my company of the designation of my life insurance to my wife
  • Copy of my advance directive indicating for my wife to be the trusted person to carry out action tasks.
  • Copy of my wife advance directive indicating for me to be the trusted person to carry out action tasks.
  • Copy of current Geico auto insurance indicating both our name
  • Copy of electricity bill from Puget Sound Energy with both our name on it
  • Copies of various joint bank accounts (Bank of America, Alaska USA Credit Union, and US Banks)
  • A copy of our airline reservations for a vacation that we have planned in September 11 to October 23rd 2016 to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
  • Various Pictures of our various trips since our marriage on June 19th 2014

I have some questions:

1. Is it necessary to get friends to write affidavits? I can ask my friends to write letters for us but I would like to avoid bothering them if necessary.

2. Is it necessary to get wills, advance directives, and life insurance?

Any advise on what else we should add to our list? Many thanks!

Yes we have car insurance listed with Geico car insurance. We have past evidence of car insurance with Progressive too (I forgot to add that). Also, we had join health insurance with Obama care at one point. But the rule changed and she was no longer eligible for Obama care as of October 2015. Should I provide these previous health insurance with both our names? I would need to find the documents. Thanks!

Health insurance documentation is good. While wills and medical powers of attorney are not required, they sure are something that any adult should have. And, it shows that the people in the relationship are planning for the future. I strongly suggest you add those to the stack - for your OWN benefit.

Hi Sukie,

Thank you for your advise. I am going to do the advance directive for both myself and my wife. Although, I am not sure if I should get it notarized or not?

Also, for the wills and medical power of attorney, I don't know how to get started. Can I write my wills and medical power of attorney myself? Or is there an cost effective ways (that doesn't break the banks) to do this? Thank you!

Absolutely do what Sukie has recommended. Yes, you can choose to do things yourself.

Look on-line for "Illinois will template" or similar.

Just be sure that whatever you work from will be valid in YOUR state of residence.

Sites like legalzoom.com have been used by many and have been described as reasonably priced.

The forms that are appropriate for your state will have the notary-certification language on them, if notarization is indeed required.
