No evidence for AOS package

39 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

 

we were wondering about the AOS evidence of relationship that we should include in the AOS package.

right now, we have nothing except our photos. no bank account, no joint bills, no insurance beneficiaries.

should we be worried?

should we postpone filing until we do all the stuff above or send the package with  no evidence?

some posts states one or the other option so we are confused.

 

 

thanks for the help

sorry we forgot to mention that we have been married and living together one week and we are planning to rush the filing of AOS so we don't loose time waiting. in one or two weeks, it is impossible to have any of those evidence.

what we were asking is that should we wait about a month or two until we do all those stuff that you stated and then apply for AOS, or just apply with no evidence and then gather them for interciew while risking getting denied for no evidence..?

But you must be on the lease if nothing else?

They understand that people that goes thru AOS from K1 don't have much evidence in the beginning.

For my AOS (long time ago) I remember all what we sent was a copy of the marriage certificate (we requested extra copies at the courthouse to have just in case) and a few recent pictures (wedding, family gathering etc). 

If you are the beneficiary and already added to your spouse health insurance (or car insurance) then you can add that as extra evidence.

So do not worry about about having a lot of evidence at this point. but you will need to have more evidence by when you have the AOS interview (if you have an interview) and also when you do ROC 2 years later after AOS is approved.

hmmm.. i guess we don't have another solution except waiting a while  before aplying but i guess that we will go ahead and follow your advice

we filed for AOS few days after POE. No evidence needed by then. Our interview will probably be in another 8 months or so according to USCIS website. We did however, get SS# and collected as much evidence by now in our 5 months some of the bonafide marriage proof. So far, joint credit card, bank statement, lease from the apartment, power bill (wife is authorized on the account), medical from my work (card under my name, but she has medical also), other benefits from my work where she is beneficiary (401k. life insurance, work insurance, bussiness travel insurance, HSA  and others), cell phone under both of our name, 3 trips we made together (hotel bookings, restaurants we ate at, photos) from that is what i can remember. We are still waiting for EAD, so she can't have other proof.  This is a short list from what you could gather before the actual AOS interview.

 a week married and you wont have much. but all it takes is a few phone calls to get you on utility statements. a quick trip to the bank to get you on bank accounts. a call to his HR office and a piece of paper to add you to insurance. ditto for insurance policies. easily done within a few days or a week.

All that really matters at AOS is that you have satisfied your requirement for marrying within 90 days after arriving in the US.

Go ahead and file without much evidence, you will be fine.

ROC is when you really need evidence. 

Good luck!

All we sent in was joint savings account and copy of our lease for the apartment showing both names. No issues but it was something at least.

As mentioned from others, at first you tend not to have much to show but eventually you get more. Joint car insurance, joint medical, life insurance policies, joint cell phone bills, ect.

We married within 5 days of his arrival.  We filed within 8 days of his arrival.  At that time we didn't have much information of co-mingled accounts, and he was from a high fraud country.  We were approved (1 year and 1 month later) for his green card without interview.  FYI...our application was sent in May and his EAD was received by August.  This was 4 years ago, but we didn't submit any extra paperwork.
