I'm in the same situation.  I very clearly stated in the cover letter that I had owned the house for 10 years prior to meeting my spouse, but, like you, I also included Home Owners' Insurance that has both of our names.  In fact, I sent three years' of premium statements in to show both of us had been on the insurance for multiple years.

 

Just explain it UP FRONT so they won't overlook it and issue you an RFE

 

And...why only one year's worth of tax transcripts?  You should have both 2014 AND 2015.

As for 1 years tax return

I did not work in 2014 so we did not do joint tax return, we did only in 2015

We do this year too ofcourse but dont have enough time to include in application. So we will probably get rfe about that and will send 2016 tax return.

we also have affidavits notarized from 3 friends

do you have anything that i dont in the list?

Where does one explain such things about why you don't have your name on the lease, bank account, etc.? Is that explained in the cover letter?

Hi,

Actuallt you are right, you dont explain that. Cover letter os only for table of contest to let them know what proofs you have ao it is easy for them to find everything in your file

Still i do not think its a big problem that i dont have lease or house agreement together

My philosophy with this I-751 ####### now is that you can't provide what doesn't exist, so don't get stressed out over what someone else has provided compared to your list.

Believe me, I have been there very recently prior to my non-interview, scrabbling around trying to find every little possible document dating back years, and you know what, I'm done with it.

 

Your list looks fine to me, particularly the US military dependents card.

Only if you were required to file a return....some people earn below the threshold to file. Edit: I see the OP confirmed this was the case

 


CR1 / DCF (London): 2012 / 2013 (4.5 months from I-130 petition to visa in hand)

 

I-751 #1 [Denied]

 

Early May 2015 : I-751 Joint filing package sent fedex next day 09:00am from UK ($lots - thanks). 
May 2015: Notice of receipt/1yr extension received, dated day of receipt. This was forwarded to me outside the US, and no issues re-entering multiple times.
June 2015: Biometrics completed - walk in / argument, stressing proof of imminent travel and multiple prior inconvenient appointments & reschedules.
May 2016: Vermont Service Centre updated to processing May 2015 cases, therefore my case is now classed as outside normal processing time
May 2016: Service request sent (whatever that is) after calling to find out why I am still waiting after 12 months. Unable to tell me anything.
May 2016: Letter received in response, stating processing is on hold due to 'pending security checks' with no other information. Not helpful.
May 2016: (7am) - Infopass appointment for I-551 Stamp in passport.  (8am) - Returned to USCIS office for another I-551 stamp after realizing the dumbass put the expiry stamp as 2015 not 2017. Two entire passport pages wasted. Cheers. 

Oct 2016: Infopass appointment (not at local office). USCIS have sent my file to an overseas office, in a country that neither myself or my spouse have ever resided in. It has sat there untouched for five months. Why? Who knows. Internal query requesting urgent clarification is sent by USCIS officer.  
Oct 2016: An identical 'pending security check'  letter received, addressing precisely none of my or the immigration officers legitimate queries. 
Nov 2016: Infopass appointment: My file is now back in the US and at my local office...no other updates or progress. 
Jan 2017: Notification that an interview has been scheduled at a local office. Bizarrely still no RFE... 
Jan 2017: 2hr wait, then interview terminated before it began, due to moving my ID to another state 2 wks prior. New interview 'in a few months...maybe.'       Informed them that divorce proceedings are underway, but not finalised at this time. 
March 2017: An Interview was scheduled - marked as no-show as they didn't actually send out a notification of interview. FML 
April  2017: Filed an official complaint with the ombudsman, and have requested Senator & Congressman assistance - enough is enough. 
May 2017: Yet another infopass. No updates, interview of further progress. Still no response from Congressperson, Senator, or Ombudsman received. 
June 2017: 68 days after contacting them, the Ombudsman finally contacted USCIS. 'It may take up to 60 days to receive a response'.   
July 2017:  A follow up enquiry sent by Ombudsman to USCIS after receiving no response or action after 45 days. I am Jack's complete lack of surprise. 
August 2017: 60 days has come and gone with no response from USCIS. Contacted the Ombudsman who will contact them AGAIN. 
August 2017: Email from Ombudsman - USCIS have scheduled an interview at the very end of August .  
August 2017: Interview - switched to a (finalised) divorce waiver. Told that decision will be made that afternoon, but no problems foreseen with my case. 
September 2017: Now 4 weeks since interview, my file has not moved from the officers desk, and no decision is showing when I call and speak to a Tier 2.  
September 2017: Request filed for Senator assistance (a different senator - maybe I will get a reply & assistance from this one?). 
October 2017: 37 days since interview....and no decision.  W, and indeed, TF is going on???? 
October 2017: Letter of Denial received - reason given as 'I-751 petition was not properly filed'. Discovered ex-spouse made false allegations to USCIS

I-751 #2 [Pending] 

October 2017: Within 72hrs of receiving denial notice, a new waiver I-751, divorce decree & $680 cheque, sent to Vermont via FedEx overnight 9am priority.  

October 2017: I-797C Receipt/extension letter received, dated day of receipt at VSC 

October 2017: Another I-551 stamp obtained at infopass appointment, as the extension letter is useless with a 2yr card that expired 2.5yrs ago! 

November 2017: Biometrics completed (early walk-in) 

2018: Re-entered US multiple times with second I-751 extension letter & stamp. Quick trip to secondary required to verify, and stamped in as normal

  

N-400 [Pending] 

February 2018: N-400 filed online.  $725 paid to the USCIS paperwork wastage fund

February 2018: Biometrics completed (walk-in)

I was asking a sincere question though. Because I will need to explain some things soon in our I-751 and I'm not sure where those things would be explained if not in the cover letter.

My current wife will be filing with a divorce waiver but the divorce date won't be ready in time, so obviously we will be sent an RFE. She should not mention anywhere in the cover letter that's we don't have a divorce date yet, but that we will provide one when the RFE is sent, right?

Trymester3,

 

I had my packet divided into sections - including one that had house and car insurance policies.  I put a sheet of paper as a "detailed table of contents" for each section (as well as having a high-level table of contents as part of the official cover letter).  It was on these detailed ToC sheets that I put my explanations.

 

For example, in our case, I own our house (and have since 2002).  I met my spouse in 2006. I am the only name on the deed.  We have two cars - one that I owned before I married my spouse that is in my name only.  The other car has both of our names on the title.  So in my section with house insurance and car insurance (which has both of our names on the policies), I put a sheet of paper that explained these facts.

 

At least if the adjudicator can READ (and WILL read it), they will understand why we both are not on everything.

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks Sukie, My wife and I lived in my mother's apartment. This means neither of our names is on the lease or any other document. Would there be anywhere in the packet to write that the piece of evidence is missing because it's under my mother's name. Or should we not worry about explaining that unless an RFE is sent?

Hi friends, I am Feb.17 filler. Still I am trying to prepare my doc. I have 2 questions.

1- Should I send the original of family/friends affidavit letters or just a copy?

2- My spouse got a mail from his company to USCIS . It says that my name is on his 401k, retirement plan and life and health insurance? do u think I I sent the original letter to uscis or not? should we ask the copy of those policies too?
