Married but living apart

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This is my first time posting here... I (F-1 visa holder)got marred with my husband(US citizen) 07/13/2020. And i just filed all the paper on 10/15/2020. But there is a huge concern. He lives in NC and i live in NY. we met in NY 4 years ago when he was working here (as a skydiving instructor). Then he moved away. and i remain in NY for school (still attending school) I wrote an explanation letter about why we live separately because school, but we plan to move in together when i graduate school in december 2021. Do you all think thats a huge flag and will be a huge concern for the interview? I gathered as much evidence as i can, but i am still very worried it is not enough because we dont live together. What should i do? and what else should i prepare since we dont have lease/utility bill/address together?


Below is the evidence i sent to the USCIS

Documents include:

  • Joint account

  • Explanation of Living Apart

  • Wenqi’s life insurance beneficiary

  • Authorized Credit card User

  • XXX’s itinerary of visiting XXX

  • Relationship photo timeline

  • Skydiving certificate

  • Phone log history

  • Text conversation

  • Affidavit of support letter and author’s photo ID

  • Gift proof 

  • Joint Car insurance

  • Facebook Announcement

Yes when you don't live together it raises some flags. The important part is your phone records showing you talk together a lot each week. Plus documentation showing that you visit each other often. 

My wife came to the US on an F1 visa about 10 years ago.
