I-485 Interview: Is this enough Supporting Evidence of Relationship?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, my initial i-485 interview is on January 31st. :)


I was wondering if this will be enough evidence to prove that our marriage is bona fide. 

- Joint Bank Account Statement

- Joint Car Insurance

- Joint Health Insurance

- Phone bill with both our phone numbers in it

- Photos (wedding, travel pics with friends and family, date pictures;thinking of bringing 10-15 pics)

- Airline/accommodation confirmation receipts for our 2 vacations, since I came to US 



What I can potentially prepare:

- Affidavits from friends and family members stating that our relationship is bona fide

- Birthday card from husband's grandma saying welcome to the family. 

- Christmas cards from husband's mother and sister. 

- Congratulations on your wedding card from a friend


I know birthday/Christmas/wedding cards will be a perfect addition, but it's just that they are all sent to my "English" name not my real name. 

It's like, my legal name is Hyunkyoung, and I go by Hannah here.

and I didn't mention Hannah as my "other names used" in my i-485 application since I thought it was more like a nickname, rather than something like a maiden name. I did however mention that I go by Hannah in my i-765, because I go by an English name at workplaces.


If I'll need the cards as well, I can screenshot some work emails of people calling me Hannah/Office outlook calendar, or an affidavit from my supervisor that I go by Hannah at work.


However if the evidence I mentioned above would be enough, I'm just planning not to, so that I could only include documents with my real name.  


So what do you think? Any advice will be much appreciated. 


Thank you very much for your answer in advance, and hope you have a great weekend!

Looks like you have plenty of evidence.  I wouldn't bother with the affadavits from friends and family.
