Its ok, were on the same shoe. My husband got sick and currently on disability. You can add the Health care power of attorney, Durable power of attorney for your finances, I also bought life insurance although its not required but the premium is cheap, like 10 bucks monthly and since my husband uninsurable due to his illness I just bought an accident insurance which cost me 10 bucks monthly too. Then consider getting affidavits from friends attesting your marriage is genuine. Your 401k showing him as your beneficiary. Joint membership as well like Costco or gym. State ID too showing common address.

When it comes to tax, joint filing is the best, since he is on disability and my income exceeds to 32k, we ended paying state tax because is disability income is taxable. Its important that you guys file tax jointly because we need it when we apply for citizenship next year. You can also summit pictures of both of you, with friends and family over the course of your marriage. I remembered I did submit health card too although were not cover on the same  health insurance because I have my own from my work and he has Medicaid from the state. Sample letter or junk mail showing you guys live on the same roof, sample utility bills like phone and cable if you have because I don't have these, I just sent letter explaining we live in my father in law and all bills were under his name. If you guys travel submit it too like the ticket, passport stamp and etc.


For bank account, we only have one, so his disability income and my wage were on the same account, what important is it shows you guys share the same account since marriage.


Btw, my ROC will expire on April 2017 and I just sent my ROC package last Jan. 31.
