hello everyone

i am going to apply for a condition removal for my green card

i need a sample of affidavit of support pls

can you guys help

thank you

Please review the guide from the link below on what you need for ROC. Affidavit of Support is not needed.

 

https://www.visajourney.com/content/751guide

From the guide...

1. Payment as required by USCIS. Use a personal check so you can track the payment. Money Orders are also accepted. Read the Guide to Paying USCIS Immigration Fees.
2. Cover Sheet (example here)
3. Form I-751, Petition to Remove the Conditions on Residence (see example form)
4. Copy of the Green Card (Front and Back) for the person filing to remove conditions (and any K2 children)
5. Evidence of Bona fide Relationship (see below)

“When starting an immigration journey, the best advice is to understand that sacrifices have to be made; whether it is time, money, or separation or a combination of any or all.” - NuestraUnion

FYI affidavits are a weak form of evidence and are not required. Anyone can write one. As long as you have a good quality and quantity of evidence in terms of co-habitation & financial co-mingling, you don't have to submit affidavits.

thank you for your answers but i still hope if anyone can give me a sample

 

and yes it is for removal of condition for my green card

I'm not trying to be snide, but Google and VJ have a number of examples.  Search "removal of conditions affidavit" in google and you'll come across plenty of links.  Here are a couple:
https://citizenpath.com/how-to-write-an-i-751-affidavit/

https://www.***removed***/greencard/***removed***/remove-conditions-marriage-permanent-residence.html

 

Again, please keep in mind this is not primary evidence.  You'll need to submit strong proof of intermingling of finances and cohabitation.

I would recommend reading the I-751 instructions. https://www.uscis.gov/i-751 

 

 Affidavits are in fact on the list page 5/10 & 6/10. (See the list below)They do carry the least weight. You can add credibility to affidavits by getting them notarized.  Please not the last sentence: Affidavits must be supported by other types of evidence listed above. This means that:

  • if the person who writes the affidavit says you all go to dinner once a month, then you would show pictures and receipts that place you all at the same date/time and location.
  • If the person who writes the affidavit says they helped you move into your home, then you can present text message conversations around that subject.
  • If you rent, you could ask your landlord to issue an affidavit.

*****************************************************************************************************************************************

Evidence of the Relationship
Submit copies of documents indicating that the marriage upon which you were granted conditional status was entered in “good faith” and was not for the purpose of circumventing immigration laws. Submit copies of as many documents as you can to establish this fact, to demonstrate the circumstances of the relationship from the date of the marriage to the present date, and to demonstrate any circumstances surrounding the end of the relationship, if it has ended. The documents should include, but are not limited to, the following examples:
1. Birth certificates of children born during the time of this marriage, if any;
2. Lease or mortgage contracts showing joint occupancy and/or ownership of your communal residence;
3. Financial records showing joint ownership of assets and joint responsibility for liabilities, such as: 

  • joint savings and checking accounts with transaction history,
  • complete joint Federal and State tax returns, insurance policies that show the other spouse as the beneficiary,
  • joint utility bills,
  • or joint installment
  • or other loans.

4. Other documents that you consider relevant to establish that your marriage was not entered for the purpose of evading U.S. immigration laws; and

5. Affidavits sworn to or affirmed by at least two people who have known both of you since your conditional residence was granted and have personal knowledge of your marriage and relationship. (Such persons may be required to testify before an immigration officer as to the information contained in the affidavit.) The original affidavit must be submitted and also contain the following information regarding the person making the affidavit: his or her full name and address; date and place of birth; relationship to you or your spouse, if any; and full information and complete details explaining how the person acquired his or her knowledge. Affidavits must be supported by other types of
evidence listed above.

The first post on this thread is a great example of how you may want to format your evidence. It is important that you state in full sentences what the evidence is proof of. Don't just say "Joint lease". Instead, say "Copy of lease agreement listing us as joint tenants at “Our Address”, beginning July 01, 2013 and copies of lease renewals for the same address for subsequent terms until June 30, 2016"

https://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/604970-i-751-cover-letter-list-of-evidence-samples-and-reviews-megathread/

 

You may want to consider furnishing an Advanced Health Care Directive and a financial power of attorney. USCIS takes both documents very seriously.

 

All the best,

FYI getting affidavits notarized doesn't add credibility. The notary simple confirms that the signature belongs to that person, notarizing has nothing to do with the truthfulness of the affidavit.

Sure, you could argue that. One could also argue that a notarized affidavit has more credibility because whoever signs it can be held accountable for the statement. With a sworn affidavit, the person could say "I did not write that".

The takeaway is that affidavits are listed as one of the options on the instructions.

The US cannot compel somebody to show up, let alone testify, at a field office. Unless it is one's own case, failure to appear would have no basis to be held against the applicant.

They could request it, but I have yet to see that actually happen.

Also on the cover letter, which isnt required, joint lease is just as adequate as copy of joint lease for blah blah blah... all of mine were very simply written and no rfe or other issues.  I had two affidavits neither of them were notarized nor did I supply further documents showing the item to be true (but that's not a bad idea!) However I knew they were miniscule in the decision considering we had a joint account and joint deed (not even a joint mortgage.)
