My wife will be sending in her I-751 Packet soon (coming from K-1), and we have been assembling the collection of materials.

Does anyone see anything here that seems unnecessary, or that you think should be added?

Here is what we plan to send in the packet:

  • $680 check ($595 application fee + $85 biometrics fee)

  • G-1145 (people disagree on if this is necessary, but it seems like they'll still take it, and doesn't hurt if sent)

  • I-751 Application Cover Page

  • Form I-751

  • Permanent Residence Card copy

  • Passport Biographical Page copy

  • Marriage Certificate

  • Photographs from Wedding Ceremony/Reception

  • Lease agreement from jointly rented property when we lived there (lived there 2019-2020)

  • Deed, Mortgage statement, Homeowner's bill, most recent electric bill statement for jointly owned property where we now live (bought 2021)

  • Mortgage Preapproval Letter (issued in August 2020)

  • Joint Bank Account Statements for (roughly) every quarter since marriage

  • 401k statements showing each other as beneficiaries for each others' 401k plans

  • Joint health insurance
  • Tax return transcripts for 2019, 2020 (since marriage)
  • Honeymoon trip September 2019 (flight, hotel, and pictures)
  • Trip to see wife's family January 2020 (immigration entry stamps, flight itineraries, photos
  • Trip to see my family for Christmas December 2019 (bus ticket)
  • Trip with friends November 2019 (bus ticket, photos



It seems good enough for me, although I'll admit that evidence from 2020 is a bit more sparse than I'd like. But still, between the January trip, August Mortgage Letter, and quarterly joint bank account statements, I think there's still enough evidence for that year. I think we also might have a few more good joint photos from 2020, although they don't have the same supporting evidence in terms of flights/receipts/etc.

Definitely do it. I sent it and as a result, they texted me confirming the receipt of my application which wouldn't have been possible without the form.


Your packet looks great. Good luck!
