Aloha! We are filing our I-751 this month as well. My husband's conditional GC expires in early November. Since we're in Hawai‘i we will be sending our petition to Phoenix. Although we could technically file this week, we will be waiting until the end of August, as my husband is traveling home for a visit the second half of September and we are concerned his biometrics appointment could be scheduled during that time.

 

Anyway here is our Table of Contents!

  • Personal check for $680.00

  • State of Hawaii Department of Taxation Form N-11 “Individual Tax Return–RESIDENT” for Calendar Year 2018

EXHIBIT D : Financial Accounts and Household Accounting

  • Explanation of documents in Exhibit D (explains our rather unique way of managing our bank accounts and household finances)
  • Explanation of absence of joint home mortgage or lease (explains that we did not wish to refinance home I owned before meeting my husband and that we hope to purchase a home together when housing market and interest rates are more favorable)
  • “Verification of Account Information Notice” from Bank #1
  • Bank statements from Bank #1 checking account since February 2016 (joint account but primarily used by my husband)
  • Copy of completed “Signature Card Amendment” form from Bank #2 (added my husband to be a co-account holder of my checking account in May 2019...oops shoulda done that sooner!)
  • Bank statements from Bank #2 checking account: June and July 2019
  • Monthly household accounting spreadsheets since July 2016

EXHIBIT E : Vehicles

  • Copies of current automobile registrations showing joint ownership/responsibility 
  • Copies of current and previous automobile insurance cards showing joint ownership/responsibility
  • Copies of current and previous automobile policies showing joint ownership/responsibility, primary driver, and other household driver

EXHIBIT F : Other Joint Accounts

  • Select monthly mobile phone statements showing both of our names (one per quarter)

  • Printout of personal profile from my employer’s employee management portal

  • Printout from Bank #2 showing beneficiary status for my life insurance and brokerage accounts

EXHIBIT H : Travel

  • Copy of flight itineraries to/from Tokyo-Haneda, Japan (May-June 2017)

EXHIBIT L : Affidavits

  • Included four affidavits: from my mother (husband's mother-in-law), our next-door neighbors, and two friends. Based on research on VJ and plenty of people stating their petitions were approved without notarized affidavits, we did not get them notarized but are including originals with wet signatures.

Whew! Best wishes to all fellow August filers for no RFE's and speedy approvals. :)
