Great. The only other super strong piece of evidence that I can think of would be life insurance, a living will...or something along those lines. But you have a lot of other solid co-habitation and financial co-mingling evidence so honestly it's probably not even necessary in this case.

Looks good based on what I have researched in the past weeks! The joint apt/home is a pretty strong one!

We don't have that, as I've owned my house prior to marriage, but we have a child, so equals out, haha!

Can always do a quit claim deed.  Nothing says your marriage is real like deeding out your property.

I just finished collecting and scanning the support documents for my wife's I-751 package which I will send out in 10 days.  I hope we can avoid an interview.  These are the documents I have prepared:

 

READY-Apartment lease with both our names & signatures
READY-Periodic Joint bank checking acct statements since wife's arrival in June 2017.
READY-Deed for new home with both our names
READY-Home Mortgage Lender Letter with both our names.
READY-Credit Cards showing both on joint account with same card number.
READY-Amazon delivery label showing both names and our current address.
READY-Wife's Military Dependent ID card showing me as the sponsor.
READY-Tricare Eligibility Letter showing both of us together.
READY-Military pay statement showing wife as my benefic.
READY-Texas Health Care Directives appointing each other as sole health care proxy(Advanced Directives)
READY-Our Texas driver's licenses with same address for both of us
READY-2018 Joint Tax ReturnTax Returns 
READY-Pictures of us on special occasions here in the US.
READY-Car Insurance Cards showing both of us as insured drivers for our car
READY-Boarding Passes for Las Vegas Valentine Day Trip 2019
READY-Utility application showing both our names for our current address

READY- Scanned front and back of wife's conditional Green Card

 

I plan to attach a cover letter per the example in the VJ I-751 guide, a check for $680.00, and the completed I-751.

Am I missing anything?

 

Relax, you got this.

 

I believe this is just a perfunctory filing (at least for those of us with nothing to hide). Although you (or myself) don’t have ALL the suggested evidence, you have enough to establish good faith. 

 

Of note:  I read a few posts before I filed where people were rfe’d for ALL banking statements, so I opted to include each month mostly because our statements are so small (longest one is 2 pages).

 

Remember to use the cover letter to explain your situation, and anything that may be missing. ie.  I explained the valid reason why we had separate car insurance until about 4 weeks before I submitted ROC, just so if they wonder, they have the answer.

To some, yes.  

 

Having a child just means you had intercourse. There’s no financial gain to children.  Also, many people can’t have them or don’t want them, so while I do agree with you, just pointing out it’s not as rock solid evidence, or on the same level, as finances.

 

Sharing your property is a financial commitment and comes with a huge risk to your investment.  

 

Just trying to be helpful, incase your evidence is on the weaker side, since a quit claim deed is so easy, and relatively cheap :)

Hows does this look? Just so won't create another thread:

 

Joint Bank Accounts (Monthly statements)
Joint Credit Cards (Authorized User, Quarterly Statements, Copy of Actual Credit Cards showing same card number)
Joint Tax Returns (IRS Transcripts for two years showing filing jointly)
Joint Medical Insurances (health, dental, vision, prescription card?, bill from hospital for child birth)
Wife/child listed as Beneficiaries on 401k/life

Child Birth Certificate - certified; paper from pediatrician showing both as parents

Car Insurance showing two cars, both drivers primary and insured
Both names on recently sold car's title/registration (was recently sold, but still)
Driver's licenses showing the same address
Utility Bill showing both names on mailing, but mine only on acct
Notarized affidavits
Some proof of travel together
Various photos together during the time frame

 

Also @missileman, definitely do monthly bank statements! Quarterly are ok for CC only to show activity.
