Posted (edited)

Planning to file online and will be uploading the following supporting evidence with the application. Here's the evidence and the questions I have prior to submitting the application for naturalization online.

 

  • Copy of U.S. Spouse Birth Certificate
  • Photocopy of Permanent Resident Card. Question: Provide a photocopy of the front and back of your Form I-551? Can I just submit copies of front and back of current green card or do I also have to submit the green card approval notice which I'm assuming is the I-551 Form?
  • Copy of marriage certificate;
  • Copy of U.S. spouse-divorce decree
  • 3 years of tax returns & transcripts 
  • Joint bank and credit card statements. Question: How many months should we submit? Should we also redact account numbers?
  • Lease information. Question: We rent from a private homeowner, does the lease agreement need to be notarized by my landlord?
  • Insurance policies: Joint auto insurance, life insurance, medical insurance, advanced directive of health care 
  • Copy of Driver's License.
  • Copies of Passport pages along with flight itinerary(2 trips out of US 2 weeks each)
  • Copies of Utilities bills 
  • Copies of 8-16 photos together (i.e. wedding, graduation, vacations etc.)
  • Notarized Affidavits from family members.

1.  Your Green card, itself,  is the I-551.

2.  I would not redact the account numbers, but I don't think it would be an issue if you did.

3.  No.

This is not I-751 application, so no need to add  everything

  • Copies of Passport pages along with flight itinerary(2 trips out of US 2 weeks each)- no need
  • Copies of Utilities bills - you many add as additional evidence
  • Copies of 8-16 photos together (i.e. wedding, graduation, vacations etc.)- no need
  • Notarized Affidavits from family members.- no need
  • Health directive- no need
  • 3 months of bank statement would be fine, since you are adding tax transcript.
  • No need to notarized lease documents- but add them as additional evidence

When I did some research on additional evidence in this forum, I read that I should treat additional evidence as a mini-ROC ? So uploading this much evidence is with the online application is out of the norm? I'm trying to avoid an RFE's but it just feels odd that they don't want to see more evidence for the N-400.

Okay, since you have everything ready to add as additional documents , go ahead and add those.   Nothing harm to add more documents.   May be I got lazy after submitting all those documents during I-751 and decided not to add those and got approval

Also forgot to ask which tax transcript to I upload. Do I upload the account transcript or the return transcript?

Just to clarify one question regarding our lease. My landlord typed it up himself and since we are renting from a private homeowner, the lease agreement is not on an official letterhead. I was just wondering whether that agreement is acceptable?

If it's signed, you're fine. The standard of evidence is a totality of the circumstances.

When you submit your N-400 application, the only evidence that is required is:  2 photographs if outside the US, copy--front and back--of your Green Card, current legal marital status document(marriage certificate for most people), and military docs if you or your spouse is in the military.

 

When you go in for your interview, THEN you bring proof of an ongoing bona fide marriage if applying on basis of marriage to USC.
