Home Purchase right after ROC

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good Morning,

 

My spouse's conditional green card expires 8/16, and we will be submitting our I-751 package shortly.  The quandary I'm in is that I put in an offer on a house earlier this month, and unexpectedly beat out multiple bids.  We expect to close on 8/2.

 

In my haste I just signed the contract in my name only, but expect to add my spouse's name at closing. So I suppose this purchase could only be used as evidence if I wait for the 8/2 closing date. That's cutting it very close to the expiration date.

 

But if I don't wait and submit earlier, he'll have to submit what I guess would be a suspicious address change right after filing. 

 

Should I wait until 8/2 and include the home purchase? Is it possible to submit everything we have now and submit this evidence shortly thereafter? Would disclosing in our I751 cover letter that we plan to move next month help?

 

Any advice or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks

Joint property is a very strong piece of evidence.  I would wait until I had closing documents showing both names.......then I would send the package via priority mail to USCIS......as long as they receive it before the expiration date on the card, you are fine........there is no need to rush it now.......

 

Do NOT send additional evidence....send it all together!!!!!

Thanks. If there's a rejection for any reason, do they allow you to resubmit, even if it's after the expiration date? That's partially why I wanted to allow some extra time, just in case I forget an important signature or make some other boneheaded mistake.

Yes, you can resubmit after an RFE or a rejection.........the only rejections I know of within the past 3 years is because of filing too early.........like I said, I would wait and sent a complete package.....

There is also likely an interview that you will have the ability to provide additional evidence 


YMMV
