Removal of Condition I751 for young couple

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I just got my social security number and I came to US with spouse visa CR1. I and my husband live with my husband's parents. We think about the next step: removal of condition I751. I know even though it's too early I just want to prepare everything.

 

As a young couple, what documents should we have for removal of condition? My parents in law pay for every bills (gas water trash electricity) and my husband is still their dependant on their tax return. They support us financially even though my husband also works as a part time worker and he is also an university student. Do you have the same experience like this? 

 

Thank you

Get joint credit cards, joint bills, he should stop being on their tax return and you should file married (jointly or separately.), even if you two choose to live with your in laws you should create some sort of lease and contribute to bills and pay a little each month.  At the very least this allows you some independence.

Agreed. Y’all need to start filing taxes as married. That’s one of the first things they look for is tax returns.

 

Start helping with the bills where you can, like the above said have some form of written agreement about the living situation. Open a joint checking account and if there are credit cards make sure you’re on each other’s cards.

 

anything that both of your names are on (insurance, car title, loan, bank account, bills, etc) is what you are looking for.

Oh I see, so we should have something that have our names on it right? So I got my social security number this month, December. What month and year do I need to file I-751?

 

Iam confused here, some people say I should file before my second anniversary so it will be like next year. This month is our first anniversary. And what I know it's 2 years green card. 

 

Thank you before

You file the I-751 up to 90 days before the expiration on your green card. 

So between 90 days before up to the day it expires.

Yes, ours is filed as of May.

Our list of proof for ROC is:

 

Joint Car loan for 2016 Nissan Rogue in both our names
Joint Car loan for 2016 Hyundai Accent in both our names

Document showing we are each others  beneficiaries for our own 401Ks and stock plans

Documents showing we are each others beneficiary to life insurance plans

2016 and 2017 tax returns filled jointly

Cable bill in his name to our home address

Electric bill in my name to our home address

Paystubs showing same home address

Apartment lease in both of our names for 2017 and 2018

School registration showing that he is an emergency contact for my daughter

Car insurance in both of our names
Renters insurance in his name for the house

Joint bank account where all of the money goes in both of our names

Christmas cards addressed to us

Pictures of us on vacation, out with my daughter, family gatherings etc.

Hotel bill from vacation

And then if we get RFE'd for a lease for 2016, I'm going to send a statement saying that I never had him added onto my apartment lease, but we have his drivers license with that address showing he lived there. It also was the addressed used for AOS and the entire K-1 process.
And then if we need more proof we'll add adoption of two cats, cell phone activity showing how much we text and talk, copy of records showing he can take my daughter to doctors appointments as an approved adult, updated info of anything out of date by the time they get to the case, statements from family and friends, and anything else I can find.
