Hello guys,

I have been here from when i started this journey. So happy to see that the journey still continues but i am not the only one.

I have a few questions and am about to file my I-751

1) Is the I-751 supposed to be filed before the 90 day window starts or during it?( confused because i saw a few packets were returned to the sender)

2) Kindly inform me about the steps in the process, I did read around but it was all bits and pieces.

3) Need the names on joint bank account be added during the total two years( raising a chance of suspicion if not) or its irrelevant as long as its joint.

4) I did read the USCIS website for the list of the documents but didn't see the need for front and back of the green card. Some threads have been created about it. Are there some additional documents not mentioned but that need to be sent?

Really appreciate any clarification provided. :)

I can only answer a couple of your questions:

90 day window - make sure your packet arrives during the window - not one day before and certainly not after.

Joint accounts - they want to see printed copies of statements that show you both on the accounts along with the transaction details. Give copies with both names on them back to your wedding or as far back as you can.

If you didn't have joint accounts until very recently, supply other proof that your finances were comingled and explain in a letter why the joint accounts were only opened recently.

Good luck!

2) :guides: easily accessible at the top of the forum page. In particular, the ROC guide: http://www.visajourney.com/content/751guide

3) Read the USCIS Form I-751 instructions, https://www.uscis.gov/i-751 , read page 5, Evidence of the Relationship.

4) Discussed in this forum thread 5 days ago: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/620090-anyone-got-rfe-for-sending-copy-of-front-green-card-only/

To adequately prepare your ROC packet for submission you should consider reading and reviewing the links provided here and in the other responses. The forum search function can also be useful. There is a wealth of information on this DIY site, and the official forms and instructions.

Good luck on your immigration journey.

Thank you for the links. The procedures and forms have been updated though the basics remain the same. I was just trying to get myself upto speed with something that needs to be kept in focus while filing the petition. Appreciate the reply :)

Thank You, really appreciate you taking out the time :)

That sounds like a perfectly good way to go about the situation, It had me tensed for a moment there but I can surely provide evidence of co-mingling finances.

Sending good thoughts your way too!
