Hi everyone! 

I am starting to put together my husbands I-751 removal of conditions to obtain his 10 year greencard. 


One of the issues I’m running into is showing proof that we reside at the same residence.


We currently live with my mother so lease is under her name.


What are some expamples of evidences I could provide to show that my husband and I live together? 


Also my husband and I don’t share bank accounts I don’t currently have a bank account but I am an authorized user on his credit cards. What are other examples of comingling of finances that I could provide ? 


Thank you!!

At least you must have a join checking/saving account( this is the one USCIS really looking for). Addition evidence you can think of:

- Driver license with same address.

-Tax return.

-Utilities bill under both name.

-Car loan with both name.

-Car insurance with both name.

-Gym membership with same address and spouse is emergency contact.

-Health insurance with both name.

-Flight ticket with both name.

Statement of the joint credit card

power of attorney 

life insurence showing each other as beneficiaries 

retirement showing each other as beneficiaries 

joint bills or just some in your name some is his at the same address 

joint healt insurance 

joint car insurance 

joint car loans/title (if you have that) 

DL showing same address 

get an affidavit from mom saying you both live there with her

joint meme we ship to something


These are just examples you can include anything you have to show that you reside at the same address and have a bone fide marriage.

Agree with Georgia16 and H&T posts. It seems that you're not trying very hard to get joint documents. Together you need to take out a small loan, get insurance, other bills (cable, utility, credit cards, memberships, etc.). Do you have health insurance with your husband's employer? Need to show tax records/returns. A lot of suggestions on here. It's not usually a big deal, but it certainly can be. Especially for Vietnamese because you come from one of the communist countries - a lot of bias and discrimination by some government employees. I know, I see it often. Good luck!

The only thing we don’t have is a joint checking account. 


We have life insurance together 

we have a will

we have tax returns

we have car insurance 

we have medical


we actually have a lot . So it’s not that I am not “trying hard” enough to gather my stuff. I am looking for advice and recommendations from people who have been through the process and then taking notes of what I have and don’t have. So the assumption that I’m not trying hard is really not the case. Why would I not try hard to get my husband off his conditioned green card so that he is here to be with his 2 kids. But thank you for your advice.
