I-751 Getting documents ready

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone in the forum. My window for I-751 will be opening first week of February but am still gathering my documents. Meanwhile, I have few questions to ask and will really appreciate positive answers from you guys. First, am I required to photocopy my foreign passport data page to add with other document?  Also, should I add the photocopy of my US wife passport data page along with other documents.

Another question is based on the USCIS Form I-751....PART 4 at 2.a Family Name (Last Name ) of my US wife, am I going to her maiden name or her married name since she has done the name change?

Concerning pictures from our daily activities, should I print them on 4 x 12 colored and then write the events at the back or just to photocopy the pictures of A4 paper (black and white) . Last but not least, in submitting bank statements or credit cards photocopy and their statements, should blank the account number, available balance and the debit cards digits or should I leave them open.

Thank you guys as I wait patiently on your positive response.

Hi, no need to send a copy of your passport. Front and back of GC is required. 

Pictures -> Paste them on a Word document and color print them with a regular printer using paper sheets. (Include a caption for each photo with date, place and a brief description) 

USCIS wants to see financial co-mingling more than they want to see pictures.

Not sure about the other questions. Good luck to you!

Thanks Stephanillia. My other question is whether I should put my wife's maiden name on the Part 4, 2a of Form I-751 or my last name since she already did name change to mine.

Use her legal name. You can even add a little explanation on a separate sheet to let them know of her name change if you want to.

Use your wife's married name since she legally changed it due to marriage.  If there is a section for other names used, you can put her maiden name in there, but otherwise I would not worry about that.  As to you question about blanking out account numbers, we did that for our bank accounts and joint credit cards on my wife's I751 and no one at USCIS said anything about it.  As to photos, we just used electronic photos imbedded on Powerpoint slides and printed them out with captions in color.

 

Good Luck!
