Proof Domicile Accepted for Spouse but not Stepson

Hi,

Received email today saying my proof of domicile information that I submitted for my stepson was not accepted. However, it was accepted for my wife on a separate application at the same time. Can you help me where I am going wrong. The cover letter I submitted is below (edited for personal information). What else can I do, I don't have many other options as I have been here in the Philippines for over 10 years now. The only thing not mentioned in the record is that my federal taxes have always been filed using my USA post office box as my primary address. I used the format of a letter listed here.

 

Listed below are documents and proofs that I am using to establish that the USA is and has always been my country of domicile. I further believe that if they don’t establish a continued domicile in the USA, the documents clearly establish my intent to re-establish domicile, at the time of their migration, due to my continued ties. The proofs here will cover both areas, establishment and re-establishment, for the determination that the USA is my domicile in accordance with the requirements listed in the DOS website and in the instructions for the I-864, Affidavit of Support:

 

1. Maintained 7 different credit cards from Banks in the USA with my USA post office box being my primary contact and billing address. (Navy Federal Credit Union 3, USAA 2, CapitalOne 1, and Citi 1).

2. Maintained a USA address via post office box as my primary mailing address (see proof of billing address on documents submitted as proof of domicile).

3. See Form 1099 from last year and first 5 months of current year retirement earnings showing state claim for state taxes as Alabma.

4. Arranged to live at my sister’s house upon return. Listed as my attended address on all immigration application forms.

5. Attempted to find work in the USA via USAJOBS portal since at least 2015. Included are a sample of my searches and notifications for jobs.

6. Finished Bachelors and Masters Degrees while searching jobs. Degree requirements where online from U.S. college; Excelsior College, Albany, NY. Recently completed requirements for Masters see email. Diploma not yet conveyed.

7. Maintained membership in AARP (formerly American Association of Retired Persons). (See email).

8. Maintained USA based medical/dental/vision insurance for me and my family (see attachments).

9. Maintained several loans over the years with Navy Federal Credit Union in Vienna, VA. Currently two loans (see attachments).

10. Maintained car loan issued at Navy Federal Credit Union in Vienna, VA (see attachment).

11. Have sold our home here and now living in leased unit in anticipation of hopefully getting visa approval by time lease expires.

12. Family in USA are planning a Family Reunion once the arrival date is confirmed.

 

Lastly, I declare that it is my intention in good faith to re-establish domicile in the USA at the same time that my family migrates, if the proof of domicile that I have provided doesn’t prove a continued domicile in the USA by me. I certify under USA penalty of perjury that all my statements in the letter as well as evidence that I use to support them are true and correct to the best of my knowledge.

 

 

Side note: got through to NVC after waiting one hour as I was writing this post. The customer service representative said he will send my documents to a supervisor to tell me what exactly what is wrong and what can or can not be accepted and why. So I am waiting them but would still like your input.

Do you have a place to move to?

Yes, I have made arrangements to live in my sister's house until we get a place. We don't have a formal agreement to be presented maybe it will help if it is formalized.  But we are also pending a supervisory review of documentation to see if I meet the minimum threshold for having a domicile in the USA or to

re-establish domicile.

It definitely would help though.
