Me and my husband has a joint savings bank account for more than 2 years now but we don't really use it anymore. There's only like less than $50 in that account but it's still active and open. We do have a joint checking account and credit card account that I'm going to send together with all other required evidences. My question is, is it okay to include monthly statements of our joint savings account even if it doesn't have any money there? Or the joint checking and credit card, etc are enough? Thank you very much!

I'd include it. Even if it has a low balance today,  it seems like it was active in the beginning, I would include that as it's part of how you handled money at some point in your marriage. Joint checking and credit card would show how you handle money today/recently.

They won't be worried about the amount of money that is in your joint account.  All they would like to see is an establishment of you and your spouse sharing things like that, including utilities bills, tax returns, etc.

I don't think an account with no current activity will be useful.............concentrate on quality....not quantity.....
