Do you live together (or at least near each other)? If yes, you can easily open a joint account. If he already submitted the I-130, then you can save the joint bank statements for the visa interview (they may or may not accept to see it, but it's good to have just in case).

Well, I would say is best to have it if they ask for it thn not having it. Go and get it, it wouldn't hurt u. My husband is from a high fraud country "Ghana", so I went and get a joint bank account.  I already had a capital one credit card so just added as a authorized user. A card was mailed in his name. Hes now using it in Ghana. I keep all statements to show we are both on the same account.

 

I would say cover all ur basics.....don't leave any room for the CO to question ur marriage

Definitely, it is a very good thing to have! Get one if you can, and as far as possible BEFORE you send the application. If it is opened right before you file it might be considered not as strong of a proof.

I don't think there is anything wrong with sending those - you can only send what you have, so I would say definitely send those.

 

However, there is a big difference between periodically sending each other money back and forth and having a shared bank account or multiple shared accounts. Having a shared bank account shows financial comingling ... the sharing of finances that are generally found in any marriage, from which each party can take, share, contribute, etc. The PayPal receipts will not show that financial comingling, which they will want to see in your application.

 

With that in mind, definitely make a shared bank account, or multiple shared accounts, as soon as possible.

Very confusing OP

you are sending money back and forth but live together?

site says DR but someone says Ghana?

Ghana is a high fraud country and contrary to the believe you should send money to there /  immigration does not think so

it looks to them as the high fraud person is using the USC

it is best not to offer proof of sending money

commingling is best 

if you have married ,  add him to your tax returns (IRS site tells u how to do this)   by applying for his ITIN 

then u can add him to joint account here in the USA by getting a POA from him to do banking transactions/ although most banks will not allow him to have a debit card till he is actually in the USA

OP is the immigrant; her husband is the USC. OP is in the US with DACA. OP already has a SSN. OP is not eligible for AOS, so she has to interview in the DR.

NO.  Sending money back and forth is NOT evidence of co-mingling of finances.  Depending on who is sending how much to whom and how often, it can look bad rather than good.  If you CAN open a joint account, do it.  If not, I recommend against showing evidence of money transfers.  Concentrate on evidence of time spent together in person.  If you live together, that is HUGE evidence of a bona fide marriage.  Forget about what means little and CAN hurt rather than help.

I am the beneficiary lol i have DACA and we both live in the us ..sorry for the confusion but we never really needed a joint account i use his debit card as credit cards lol if i need like $600 for the rent and i don’t have it on one of my other reviews cards he would PayPal it to me .. like even when we first met  in 2016 if he would pay for gas or my hair he would PayPal it to me .

Right.  Not really.  Living together 3 years trumps everything else you could combine in terms of evidence.
