Hi guys,

 

my AOS interview is tomorrow and we tried our best to have as much evidence as possible, but I feel like it is not enough. The only real proof that we have of living together is the joint lease, but because of the virus and some unfortunate timing, I have not yet obtained a drivers license (will later this year) and we dont have much other financial evidence to show off. We dont have a joint bank account yet, but were planning to make one soon, and other than the lease, we dont have our names on anything together. We have our separate phone plans, for example. Will I get into trouble? We have tons of pictures from the marriage and recent years, our marriage certificate and can talk about our relationship in extreme detail. Will it be enough? Thanks for the help!

 

Regards

Did you file tax jointly? A joint tax return provides good evidence 

We did this year, but we didn't file ourselves and the tax person she uses hasn't gotten back to us yet since the deadline was pushed, so we can't use it as evidence either. Last year I wasn't immigrating until May, so she was already done filing taxes by the time I came.

You can get your transcript immediately, and you'll have it to bring with you!  Go to  https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript   Even if you submitted it in July, it should be available. You'll be able to download it.

Thanks for the help! Seems my wife doesn't have an online account though and it takes up to 10 days to receive an activation code. I guess I should've thought of this sooner. 

 

Reading other people's experiences though I think we'll be fine. When it comes to remove conditions, we'll have much more evidence either way. Thank you :)

I'm sorry. I didn't realize that. I don't remember having to wait when I did it myself, but that was a while ago. I'm sure you have enough evidence. Good Luck tomorrow!

It takes 60 seconds for the IRS to text you a code, everything is online. Make the account now and you can print them tonight. It's easy.

Well we tried some login data and apparently she did make the account a while ago but never activated it. It says she indicated when creating it to have an activation code sent, but I suppose she either didn't get it or didn't activate it back then. I can't see a way to change that method at the moment.

Actually, I was just able to create a new account with texting a code. However, the 2019 tax return isnt showing up on there yet. Probably because of the delayed deadline. Good thing I checked, though. Thanks!

I was wondering how this worked myself. Due to I don’t have as much evidence. We have a bank account together and the power is in both of our names. I’m not sure I’ll have anything else. I didn’t put him on my taxes either for 2019 because he came in like October so I was told not too. Let us know how it goes I wish you luck with it.

Thanks! I heard that most of the time, they aren't quite as strict in the AOS interview because they mostly understand that coming here, moving cross countries and often continents etc. means you won't have much in both your names anytime soon. Let's hope!

I mean that would only make sense. I can’t imagine people can just throw things together so quickly and especially due to the fact we’re in a pandemic. I think you’ll do fantastic. Positive vibes your way !!!
