Hello my awesome members of VJ! you have contributed a lot of information helping those in need , more so than any attorneys ;) and i thank you for that ! tomorrow i will be filing my i751. forgive me for this long post but i had to write for my own sake and to get some clarity on some issues.

i have everything ready. 6 page cover letter detailing all the evidence i am sending etc.

few things i need to clarify though

i wrote my own name in "in the care of name" for physical address. me and my husband receive our own mails at our apartment.

For uscis elis number i wrote NONE, because as per their site you cannot access your own profile if you created it

prior to aug 2015. i created mine in dec 2014 and paid the fees. no way i can access that account information now not even my elis receipt has the account id. so i wrote none.

i wrote N/A for interpreter , preparer etc etc for almost all lines just to be 'clear'.

i wrote my(i am the conditional resident) USC step child's name and address( she lives with her biological mom and visits us on every alternative weekends) for part 5 , 1.a and in part 11 i added the additional information that she is my step child , my husband's USC child from his previous marriage to clarify any confusion regarding that.

i wrote N/A for province and postal code for from husband's address and for my step daughter's address.

Here are some details about my name. I will give an example with the name 'john doe smith'. Here 'doe' should have been the middle name. but for some reason , my middle name has been added as part of my last name in all the official documents. but in credit card applications and accounts my middle name has been considered my middle name. so basically in all the official documents , the name is for example' doe smith, john'. where as in credit card and insurance papers the name is 'John .d. smith'. so i wrote my name as it is in all the offical documents (the one without the middle name) ,as my primary name in i751. but in the section where it asks 'other names used' i wrote my maiden name plus my name with the middle name as middle name .i hope i am not confusing anyone here. do you think this is ok , have i covered both ways my name is used or is it going to be a problem? i added this in other names because some of documentary evidence i am sending shows my middle name as middle name. and some it as being part of last name.

As for the check list.

In the cover letter i have mentioned that we were married in sep 2013 and i had to wait for over 12 months to receive my greencard in dec 2014. all the USA related financial co'mingling is from dec 2014 to present. and I also have supplied the evidence from sep 2013 to dec 2014 which include paypal and western union money transfers between me and my husband , me and my husband as beneficiary for each other's bank accounts, a letter from my husband's us bank explaining since i did not have a visa or residency at that time i could not be added as a joint holder , (now i am a joint account holder , this happened immediately after i came to US. but could not be added prior to my receiving condiitonal green card and state id). and gift receipts , greetings cards and A LOT of skype chat logs between sep 2013 to dec 2014. Honeymoon trip tickets and photos (though i submitted this honeymoon trip details already for cr1) i hope this is enough as evidence for our time phsyically apart from the day of our marriage, before i came to USA

As for the financial evidence in usa. I have a big list.

Here is what i am sending

5 credit cards copies and their statements and pages detailing my husband as the authroized user for all of my cards.

Joint car title for our second car and me as a TOD (transferable on death) for his primary car that he is paying for (car loan is in his name only, therefore i cannot be added as a joint owner to that).

Documents like amusement park tickets, greeting cards , gift receipts and trampoline park tickets, school trip stickers with our names on it , chucky cheese photo prints etc etc showing the family activity with my step daughter and my husband from dec 2014 to present.

Daily whats up chat logs with my family in my country from dec 2014 (after i came to us) inwhich i have regularly mentioned my husband and my step daughter to my parents and sister.

if they ask for more evidence then we will do power of attroney , will etc. (we dont have much assets).

but for now do you feel the evidence i am sending is ok?

also please give your advice on the few points i have mentioned in the begining of this post. thank you!

my whole package is of 5.5 inch documents. and i am sending them in priority mail box. i have used acco fasteners.

I just found your post and you are in the same position as us. I was separate from my husband for nearly a year while waiting for my green card. Did you have to go for interview yet or have you had any problems since sending in your application? For your Paypal payments between you, did you send the paypal transactions or did you send bank statements to show the payments going into your account? I was going to send both but my pack is getting huge :D

 

Thanks
