Here’s a copy-paste list with additional evidence we brought to my RoC interview:

Here's a list of additional documents we brought with us to the interview:

  • Advance medical directive for both spouses, showing each other as healthcare agents
  • Emergency contact information from work for both
  • Salary warrant recipient designation form, in case I die and there's any outstanding salary still left to pay
  • Employer's health benefit elections for 2022, showing each other as beneficiaries


  • Tax return transcript for tax year 2019, MFJ, due to Covid-related delays we had not received the 2019 transcript when filing for RoC
  • Tax return transcript for tax year 2020, MFJ, 2020 taxes obviously couldn't be filed before sending the RoC package in November 2020
  • Copy of my state ID and my wife's driver's license, showing same residential address (had I not had this document, officer wanted to copy our IDs at the interview anyway)
  • Rental increase notice issued by the management company, showing the names of both spouses in the same address
  • Joint checking account transactions, covering the period after sending the RoC
  • Copies of four-five rental checks, paid from our joint checking account after sending the RoC
  • Renters’ insurance, showing both spouses as beneficiaries
  • Both spouses mentioned as designated beneficiaries for each other's savings accounts
  • Life insurance coverage through my job, not sent with the original RoC package

Getting there, slowly but surely...  (I hope )

When USCIS Misspells Your Name:


Typographical error form filled on USCIS website 1/4/2021
Contacted USCIS if there has been any progress since THEIR error (Received a Tier 1 tracking number) 2/6/2021
Contacted USCIS again as the issue remains to be resolved (Received ANOTHER Tier 1 tracking number) 3/12/2021
Apparently USCIS chat is worthless; CALLED USCIS, Tier 1 agent promised that a Tier 2 agent would call me 4/28/2021
Received a call from a nice Tier 2 officer who said I may or may not get a correct extension letter, but just in case I would be scheduled an InfoPASS appointment 5/4/2021
Went to local USCIS service center and had to deal with a nasty and entitled customer service agent who refused to give me an I-551 stamp. National Benefits Center is supposed to mail me another I-797 within 7-10 days... So I had to waste my day, taking buses for two hours one-way just to deal with this lady's attitude? 5/7/2021

After anxiously monitoring our mailbox for a few days I DID receive a corrected I-797, w00t! All documents good to go Vaccinated Ready to visit my parents in Europe for the first time in 17 months!!  5/13/2021

The lesson: Don't use the chat for anything complicated, AND keep hassling USCIS for a response...
