97 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!  My husband and I are currently assembling our evidence in preparation for applying for ROC on September 15.  Figured it might be good to start a commiseration thread, as I got so much out of my AOS filers thread.

 

Good luck to anyone in the same boat! :)

So we spent most of yesterday and today compiling evidence and are going to print and scan things gradually over the next few weeks in the hopes of sending it all off on September 16!  I figured I'd provide our list of evidence to 1) see if you guys think it's enough and 2) hopefully help anyone else preparing to apply in September.

 

So here's what we have: 

 

-Copy of marriage certificate
-8 photos from 2017-2019, including our wedding, family reunions, family graduations, family weddings, Halloween parties, vacations, us with our realtor when we bought our house, etc.
-Receipts for plane tickets, hotel, and activities for a big anniversary vacation we took last year (one photo of us with a major landmark from this vacation is included with the photos) 

-Airplane ticket receipts and boarding passes for our visits to my husband's family in the UK
-Renter's insurance document from our old apartment in both our names (2017)

-Car insurance documents in both names (span of the last couple years with different companies)
-Home insurance documents in both our names (2018 and 2019, different policies with different companies)
-Bank account statements, checking and savings (4-5 spread out over the last 2 years, a combination of checking and savings accounts)
-Mortgage documents proving we both own the house (closing documents from when we first bought the house and a recent mortgage statement)
-Life insurance documents proving we are the beneficiaries of one another's life insurance policies (including a 2017 beneficiary designation letter for me proving he's been my beneficiary since 2017) 
-Retirement documents proving we are the beneficiaries of one another's retirement accounts (with an earlier statement to prove that he's been my beneficiary since 2017) 
-Scans of health insurance ID cards proving we are on the same health insurance through our employer
-Utility bills with both our names (multiple spread out since 2017, at both our previous address and our current address)
-Official IRS transcripts proving we filed our taxes jointly (2017 and 2018)
 

 

Hope it's helpful!

Depends whether you mean 3 days before the green card expires or 3 days before the 90 day window opens.   Neither is great.

  • 3 days before the window opens is a bad idea, as if it is received early, it will be sent back to you.  It is fixable but annoying and stressful.
  • 3 days before your green card expires is also not great, as you're pushing up against timely filing.  It would likely be accepted even if only a day late, but why expose yourself to that stress.

I have sent it off 3 days before the 90 days window.I guess I will just wait for it to be returned.
