AoS from K1 for a previous J1 holder subject to the 2 years rule (satisfied though)

I am a K1 holder. Soon I will be entering the US, marry my fiancé and apply for the Adjustment of Status. I am starting to gather all the documentation needed for the application. Although, I have a particular situation: I previously held a J1 visa that was subject to the 2-year foreign residence requirement. I have complied with the requirement, but I want to make sure the evidences I am providing to demonstrate so are in fact enough:

- letters from my employer (only 1 of the two years though)

- letter from my father saying I stayed at his house for 1 year

- letter from a college where I was hosted for 10 months

- letter from a friend whose apartment I was hosted for couple months

- bank statements for the whole period showing that I was making purchases in my home country

Unfortunately, during this period I never had an actual rental agreement because I was mostly hosted at places. Neither I had utility bills on my name. Also, I only worked for 1 of the 2 years. I really hope though the evidences I am providing are enough.

Would this make it harder to get the AoS? and what about the Advance Parole?


Thank you so much.
