Membership card to a local theater Exhibit I: Two affidavits from sister and brother in law I also wrote a letter on why we don’t have more commingling of finances from 2013-2015, I wasn’t working and my husband lost his job (that’s also why we didn’t file AOS until two years into our marriage) not sure what else I could have submitted as we do like keeping our own checking accts separate and we don’t have any kids.
  6. Hi Everyone! Thought I’d create a thread for 2017 ROC filers who have received RFE to maybe keep track of how long it took to receive a response after submitting your rfe, questions about what else to submit and just general support. We filed on March 2017 for ROC, case was transferred to Nebraska on April 6th, received RFE on October 23rd, sent in response on November 22nd. anypne on a similar boat? Any clue on processing time for rfe?
  7. Thanks! I sent the RFE response package on Monday! I’m guessing with the holidays it will take some time but hoping We get good news soon!
  8. Thank you for replying back! So just a bit of background, we got married in 2013 but we actually didn’t apply for AOS until late feb and got approved at the beginning of 2015, stupid me I didn’t save the stuff I sent back then so I don’t have a lot from the early years. The RFE asked for proof of same residence, commingling of finances and children, this is so far what we have gathered: Copies of both or driver licenses showing same residence (we sent this in the past, but we just renewed them) Car insurance showing both of us under samepolicy for 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 IRS transcripts for 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017 2015 (copy of amended tax submitted to IRS as we just did this) joint savings bank acct statements from 2015 to current (that’s when we opened the acct and I forgot to send this initially as I only sent a Silly paper card from the bank that showed our same acct number) Life insurance statement from work from 2015-2018 showing me as a beneficiary on his policy Life insurance statement from 2016 to 2018 showing him as beneficiary on my policy 2016-2017 401k showing him as the beneficiary on my acct current 401k showing him as the beneficiary husbands 401k showing me as beneficiary medical insurance cards showing me listed as covered dependent from 2013 - 2016 (we currently have separate medical insurance because it made more sense financially) the house we live in is owned by my mother, so she wrote a notarized affidavit stating that we have been living here since we got married in 2013 and that we are responsible for all utilities utility bills (this one is tough as none of our utilities allow two people as acct holders and I wasn’t able to get previous statements except from cable company going all the way back to 2013) electric in his name I will send 2018 statements and I have an old statement showing that the account has been active since feb 2013 at our current residence. Water is in my name I can show statements as early as 2014, cable is in his name and sadly we could only get 2017, 2018 statements so not sure what to do here? my credit is terrible so we don’t have any other joint accounts but I do have one secured card to try to rebuild my credit and I just added him as an authorized user, the problem is his card won’t appear in past statements should I just go ahead send a copy of the credit cards only?And explain our financial situation? Sending vet bills showing us both as responsible for our dog +pictures Im also sending copies of our annual disney passes, membership cards to AAA, costco cards two affidavits from family About 30 different bills sent to each of us at our residence from 2013 until today pictures of us, family and friends over the years and cards addressed to both of us and each other honestly not sure what else to send 😕
  9. Thanks so much! im submitting also bank statements from 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, more pictures, even records of the dog we have since we don’t have children due to a medical condition I have, should I go ahead and explain that?
  10. Hi everyone, I received an RFE yesterday regarding our case. Two questions, can I travel abroad while rfe is pending?i have a trip this coming Friday. second question, the letter said I need more evidence regarding living together, financial commingling as well as any power of attorney etc. The problem is my husband and I decided from the Beginning we wouldn’t be sharing a bank acct and for the last 5 years we have lived in a house that my parents own any ideas on how I can show more evidence. We have actually been married for 5 years and together for 8. Also initially I also only sent the tax return of 2014 as2015 had an error and we had to resubmit it. im thinking of sending: 2014 tax return - again 2015 tax return 2016 tax return 2017 tax return 401k from 2016-2017 with him as beneficiary of my policy life insurance, short term disability and accident insurance for 2016, 2017, showing him as beneficiary and same for him showing me as beneficiary condo insurance showing us both as insured parties geico insurance showing both of our names for 2016, 2017, 2018 Current 401k showing me as beneficiary and showing him as beneficiary on mine ive added him as an authorized user to my credit card and he has done the same for one of his credit cards energy, water, cable, and phone, although these do not have both of our names because the companies only let us add one we can show we are both responsible for the bulk of utilities bills at the same address. copy of our DL showing same address any other ideas?? Thank you
  11. Is there anyone out there who filed at the same time I did and hasn’t received their green card? I’m starting to get really worried and disappointed with the whole process. My case was received on March 10th 2017 on April 4th of 2018 I got a letter in the mail saying my case had been transferred to Nebraska and no updates since then except for an extension letter about a month and half ago. The automated phone system said my case was in Laguna Niguel, CA but a tier 2 officer confirmed its in Nebraska. :( seems like most ppl that filed around my date had been processes
  12. Hi Everyone! Long time lurker but wanted to add my experience and hope for any insight. I'm a march 2017 filer and had not received a peep from my case until Feb 26th when i got the notification online saying my case had been transferred as everyone else i assumed it was a glitch. Then on April 3rd I received another notification saying my case had been transferred and today i receive a NOA on the mail saying that after preliminary review my case has been transferred to the LIncoln, NE office which now has jurisdiction over my case. Im in FL so I am a CSC filer why would my case be transferred to Nebraska, anyone else received a notification in the mail?
