Having 2 residences after K1 before CR-1

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

My fiance and I will be renting a room on the same lease together when I get to the US after my K1 visa is approved, but he wants to keep his old room for another year because it has a big shed for him to keep his large equipments -- not easy to find here in LA. We will have a joint bank account, and he will change his address to our new place and would be spending most of his time there. Will this be a problem? Trying to be very careful :)

Thank you and have a wonderful day.

Do you mean "after K-1 before AOS"? If you're already in the US, you don't need another visa!

And I don't see a problem. As long as you can prove you live in the same residence you're fine.


ROC from CR-1 visa (Green Card expiration date was Nov 24th 2016)

 

Link to the evidence I submitted. Be sure to send evidence spanning your entire marriage (especially for K-1) or as far back as you can. Just one or two bank statements will not cut it. I primarily focused on the two years of living here since I came in on a CR-1. If you don't have the fundamentals (i.e. joint accounts/policies), you can explain why in the covering letter. E.g. "While we do not have joint utilities, we both contribute to them from our joint bank account".

Yes that is what I meant! Thank you :)

I am just worried that they'll somehow find two associated addresses and question us about it. Should we just tell them upfront during the interview?

Most conservative would be to have you also on the other lease. I was able to add mine no problem to an existing lease. We just did our AOS interview and one of the first things they went to see was documentation of the lease. It was only for current living situation. I very seriously doubt they would even ask if there were other leases so I wouldn't worry about it at all.
