Interview in August - Prepping documents

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Alrighty, I figure I have time to prep all the documents and was wondering if a few people could take a looksy to see if there's anything I'm missing or should throw into the mix.

This is what I'm planning on bringing - originals plus copies where applicable:

- passport with I-94 and K3

- EAD card

- birth certificate

- marriage certificate

- USC husban'ds passport & birth certificate

- complete copy of AOS package I originally sent in along with applicable originals (e.g. I-130 approval)

- copy of foreign medical (I have a copy, not sealed, never got an RFE for it but bringing it anyway)

- copy of I-693A (not sealed, sent the original sealed with AOS package)

- husband's (sponsor) W2s for the last 3 years along with recently ordered tax transcripts

- husband's pay stubs for past 2 months along with updated employer letter

Relationship:

- photos (wedding photos -- just us and the justice of the peace, no friends and family present, a few with my friends, a few with mutual friends and lots of just us together on various visits and after my move here -- we have none with family -- you can see my hair get longer in each set of photos)

- joint chequing account statement with both our names (we pay bills out of it)

- power bill in both our names

- gas bill in both our names (there's a typo on my last name but too late to change it for the AOS interview)

- vet receipt account in both our names for my dog

- 2 apartment rental leases where he is the lease holder and I am listed as the occupant (they wouldn't put me as a joint lease holder because I didn't have an SSN)

- health insurance cards showing that I am on his health plan through his employer (plus any other documentation we have for it)

- his cellphone showing that he has a 2nd one (Verizon who does our home line refused to put my name on it or the cell bill without an SSN. Have one now but won't be done in time for the next billing cycle)

- wedding invitation from his friend addressed to both of us

- letters from friends and family (4 from mutual friends, 1 from his mom, 1 from his brother and 1 from his former roommate)

I'm also going to bring all the relationship stuff I had for my K3 which consisted of piles of phone bills showing both our numbers on it, flight itineraries, hotel receipts and also car rental receipts from when he drove me and my animals from Canada on "moving day".

Err... anything else? I don't drive so I'm not on his car insurance.

Oh yeah, I'm planning on having TB test results to bring in to the interview as well.

Thanks silke! If they want "more" I don't know what else I can provide since we haven't got any more joint or relationship evidence. :)
