Our AOS documents

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We will send out AOS package next week but I would like you,  experienced people to see if that would be okay. We don’t have so much as we are married only one and half month. 

Beneficiary: birth certificate , previous marriages and divorce certificates ( all with certified translations), latest I 94 , passport biographic page ( translated) , visa page in passport 

Petitioner- birth certificate, American drive license and VA ID card, divorce certificate 

Our marriage certificate 

Tax returns from 2015,and 2017( he did not have to fill 2016 and we will include the proof) . 2018 will be filled a bit later so we will bring at interview.

Award letters from pension, VA and social security. 

Bank transcripts from 2015 2016, 2017 and 2018 showing all his income.

Evidence of bona fide marriage: 3 joint bank accounts, last will , deed showing our property together, letters from the family , a  letter from my sisters in law showing that we got my husband’s parents wedding rings, a lot of mail  received at the same address, joint utility bills, proof of beneficiary’s pending health and life insurance and just a few pictures from our wedding and after wedding. Three pictures of us together ( we really dislike taking pictures). We wanted to put my name at titles or insurances of some vehicles but that was impossible as I don’t have an American driving license yet . 

Do we miss something what could course any RFE

Thank you!

Looks pretty solid there. 

Thank you.We will , however,  have more at the interview time . And I hope they will not  issue us RFE because of 2018 taxes as the deadline is 04/15 and my husband usually fills his taxes by the beginning of April every year .

Yep, you have until April 15th. I haven't done mine either. Some of the documents I need arrived really late.

Same situation here . So we will explain the case at the end of the form.

Your evidence looks solid! Lots of financial co-mingling, which is great. For the bank accounts, it's not totally clear how many statements they want to see, but ideally, they should stretch back to when the joint account was opened. 

 

If you don't want to add a lot of pictures, maybe focus on including ones of the two of you with your families? We had pictures of the two of us with his family at Thanksgiving, my family on a vacation, and each of us with both sides at our wedding. While it's not a make-or-break thing, it can't hurt to provide evidence that both sides of the family have met you as a couple. 

 

I highly doubt they'd issue an RFE for your 2018 return.

We will send all bank statements from our accounts and we have highlighted both of our names . 

As for the photos with friends or family: unfortunately we are old people, my family is far away and my husband is 70 . His 2 sisters with their families live at the other part of the USA so we have communicated only by the video chats as they are both older too and don’t travel so much. We hope to see them at summer. 

We both have no kids or other family members. Our place is very isolated and we don’t meet so much people to make pictures with them . 

Having so little pictures scares me but it is the situation, unfortunately.

I wouldn't be too worried. It would be one thing if you didn't have a lot of the evidence you do AND no pictures. But pictures are basically secondary evidence, so given that you have so many other strong ties, you can likely rest easy.
