AOS Interview Checklist - Opinions

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I know ya'll probably see 3000x of these a week, but I would verily much appreciate if someone could go through these with me and see if it sounds like enough proof and to make sure I have all of the other documents at the ready. A bit of history: My husband (The applicant) Doesn't have a SSN, and we haven't gotten our EAD/AP Combo card yet either. At the time of interview, we'll have been married  a little over 7 months; getting a lot of this stuff has been tough with him not having a SSN. Do you think they'll take that , and the time we've been married into account when processing the amount of shared information we have? Can you guys think of anything else we can get really quick?

Anyway, here's what we were able to come up with:

 

 

Documents: Identity & Immigration Status


Request for Applicant to Appear for Initial Interview (I-485)

Vaccination Documentation Worksheet

Up To Date I-864 Signed by Citizen Spouse

W-2 for 2018

I don't see you mention the actual tax return which is required with an I-864. A W2 is not a tax return. Download a tax return transcript from the IRS. https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript

 

The instructions for form I-864 say 6-months of pay stubs. That is listed as an optional proof.

 

Did you take any photos on the day of your civil marriage? 

 

i've heard of two people now who got a rather harsh treatment at the Philly office, and know a third who had zero flack. Don't let them ruffle you. Be calm and explain your situation when asked. You have some good proofs.

 Thanks for the advice. I will grab the tax return document instead (I think that’s what I have btw I was just incorrectly calling it a w-2)

 

as as for the civil marriage question: we self officiated (Quaker marriage) as that was an option in Philly. We spoke our vows  very privately and pragmatically in front of our witnesses then Literally all we did on the day of the “civil marriage” was bring the paper work to city hall in casual clothes and have the guy stamp it. I realize that’s not exactly “traditional” but nothing about this really is...now I’m starting to freak out that they’re going to pick apart our decision even though we have proof that we’ve actually got a venue for the “big ceremony” that we’re paying off ...

 

 We wanted as little pomp as possible; for our family’s sake we’re saving “the big celebration” for the 2020 ceremony. We didn’t really do anything besides get the papers signed then go stuff our faces at Redding terminal, so no pics . Hopefully the agent doesn’t have an issue with that as it was well within our rights to officiate that way  and save up for the big ceremony further out when the dates lined up for both our families to be able to make it .
