Proof of Joint Assests etc.?!

Hey VJ!

I'm from Canada and entered the U.S. on a K1-visa back July 2015. Since June 2016 I've been granted 2 year conditional status. My concern is that my wife and I don't have any joint assets. At the moment we are staying by family friends. She doesn't have medical insurance to even add me on to, she doesn't have a license so she can't add me to that either and all utilities etc. in the house hold aren't in our names. Since I've started working all we have done is opened a joint bank account and applied for a credit card in both of our names. We are looking to get our own place soon hence why things just seem all over the place. I just don't know what to do right now because we have little proof of anything due to her being in a rough spot trying to get her life in order and me literally just starting to build my foundation her in the U.S. Are there little things I can do on my end to build more proof of our" current life after marriage"? What little things can I do from now to be prepared for ROC? Answers/experiences would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

Hi Michael_88,

Our situations are similar. When my husband and I adjusted status we did not have many joint accounts either. But we are both older (in our 40's) so I was already established and most everything was paid for when he arrived. We did have the joint bank account and two credit cards together. We also bought a vehicle together wtih a very low payment.

I'm not suggesting that you go out and buy a car, but do like we did...I wrote a letter and explained our situation. Just be honest. They know everyone has to get a start and living with someone else while trying to get established is a responsible thing to do.

BTW, we had no problems with just that little information.

Good luck to you!

Get driver licenses or state ID (if you don't drive) and you will have official state documentation showing you live at the same address.

File joint tax returns.

Show you both actually use the bank account by both writing checks on it. My bank includes a page of thumbnails in the statement. Also they show up online. So somehow get copies of checks she wrote and checks you wrote. I purposely had my husband write some checks instead of always me. Submit a sampling of months that show both people. Even if you don't tend to be check writers, go buy groceries with checks so you create some evidence.

Take photos together just being normal around the house, cooking out, with the dog, with family...even if you don't like to take photos.

Get library cards from your local library.

Both names on a phone plan.

Some easy proof of co-mingling have been said in the last post like the driver's license or state ID, both name on your phone account, and pictures (with some family members). It is not the quantity of evidences that matters, it is the quality of them.

Good luck,
