I have 10 days before my greencard expires.. Apology letter needed?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My 90 day timeframe would have been somewhere the end of July. We were in the middle of buying a house at that time, the whole month of August for us was a back and forth with the mortgage company. Our closing date got pushed back a few days and we ended closing on our house at the end of August. We used the whole month of September to move, and now we are finally settling in I just realized, I need my package made AND filed within less than 10 days from now.

My evidence is very basic since we have yet to unpack most of our stuff and I have no idea where most of my stuff is right now. I am including the items I have listed below. My main concern right now is getting it accepted within the timeframe and not having it sent back. I understand we might get an RFE with this evidence down the line and I will have everything to prove the legitimacy of our marriage if they need more, but I just cannot find it right now.

My two questions are: Should I add an apology letter for delayed filing just in case it makes it there too close to Oct 28th? Would they accept the reason I explained above?

and, would this evidence be enough for the time being?

 

Thank you!

You don’t need an apology letter as long as it is within the 90 days it doesn’t matter. If you are late an apology letter won’t fix anything (although a nice sentiment)

 

 

also your evidence looks good but I would suggest more than 1 month of your checking/saving. Include a few months for each year you’ve been married

You may be able to get more bank statements online? So you don't have to go find the box the paper ones are in...

If you can't find them now though, I'd just send whatever you have access to now, and if that's the above list, that already looks quite good. You may just get an in-person interview whereas if you send everything right away you could avoid that.

No apology needed but I'd make sure it gets in next week - so don't skimp on postage charges and send it through UPS or FedEx.

My plan is to get it sent out tomorrow at the latest, and although it will be Friday I am still going for overnight shipping. I told my boss the situation I was in and she told me not to come in to work today and just focus on working on finding these documents. I might be able to get to some bank statements online if I can find the folder our online login is on (we usually just use the phone app but you cant download statements from it, just view them. If not, would a letter from our bank stating when we opened it together work?

 

Why would an apology letter not make a difference if it got there late? Would buying a house and being on the move not be seen as a valid excuse?

thank you both for your reply!

Not sure what they consider a valid excuse - I mean, theoretically, you could have gotten the entire package together before that time. Not to harp on it, but I had a baby in April and had most of my documents together before he was born so I only needed to add a few when all my time was spent caring for baby.

But you don't need to apologize if your packet gets in before the deadline, even if it's cutting it close :) Sounds like you're trying to make sure to do just that. And I'd rather send in what you have than wait for finding the additional bank statements - the acknowledgement letter gave me a way to send in additional evidence.
