How is my evidence for interview?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

After over a year and a half of waiting (PD September 2017 in NYC), we finally have our interview! I was hoping to get some feedback on what I'm putting together for the evidence portion.

 

We've been together for ~8 years, married for 4. We didn't have a wedding due to financial reasons, though we have matching rings.

 

- Photo collage for every year we've been together with ~10 photos on each page and a little caption of date and description

- Leases and subleases for past 5 years
- Renter's insurance (past year)
- Utilities (three companies -- I just pulled two most recent months of each)
- Joint tax returns for past two years
- Separate returns from two years before that (he was on his dad's but you can see I filed as MFS)
- 401k and life insurance beneficiary (he is on mine; he doesn't have any)
- Health insurance (cards and page showing both of us on account)
- Joint bank account with statement activity
- Credit cards showing him as authorized user and bank statements (some of the cards don't have much activity, hope that's okay -- we've been sticking mostly to a couple same cards)

- Various pages of flights, reservations, couple trips we've been on

 

Does our evidence look ok? I hope that they can see we've been together for a long time, especially with the photos that follow our relationship throughout the years. I'm confident we will make a great impression but still a little nervous about the papers part.

 

Thank you!

I don't know what you're applying for. You've been married for 4 years, are you in the US? Or are you applying for a visa? Photos are just secondary evidence and the joint bills, insurance, bank accounts, etc. have more weight than the photos so I suggest loading those up. 


10/15/18 - I-751 Packet sent

10/16/18 - Signed and received

10/19/18 - Check cashed

10/22/18 - Text from USCIS with LINXXXXXXXX

12/20/18 - Got my NOA1 aka Extension Letter 

03/14/19 - Got an update thru email that "New Card is Being Produced" (Not sure yet until it really comes in the mail) (Case Status website)

3/15/19 - Got an update on myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov of "New Card is Being Produced" Followed by a "Case Was Approved" update.

3/18/19 - 3 Approval Letters came with the approval date as 3/14/19

3/20/19 - Physical card arrived in the mail

Hi, my apologies, will update my post (nvm I see I can't edit the op). I am in the US applying for a green card from a B2 visa. I'll try print out more statements, thank you!
