  1. Hi all, I'm attaching the cover letter I'm drafting up. Would love to get some feedback on it. Thanks in advance! Stay Healthy, VasilyR March 28, 2020 USCIS P.O. Box 660480 Dallas, TX 75266 RE: Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence for: VasilyR, A#000000000 Dear USCIS Officer: Enclosed please find joint Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, for my husband VasilyR. My husband and I married in June 2017, and his status was adjusted to permanent resident in June 2018. We have remained living together happily, and are expecting our first child due in early May 2020. We respectfully request that this petition be accepted for removal of conditions on residence for VasilyR We have enclosed Form I-751, a check for $595 for the filing fee, check for $85 biometric service fee, and copies of the permanent resident cards for each conditional resident. Please also find attached, and as listed in the Table of Content, documents enclosed to verify the status of our marriage and ongoing relations. Please take a note of two minor discrepancies that you might identify in some of the documents below. First, apartments in our residential building have two numbers assigned to each of the apartment units. As a result, you might see in some documents our apartment marked as “8”, while in others it is marked as “4R”. Second, in 2018, we filed our taxes as “Married filing separately” per recommendations of our accountant to minimize the amount owed to the IRS. Copies of documents submitted are exact photocopies of unaltered documents and I agree to submit original documents to an Immigration or Consular officer at a later date, if required. I appreciate your prompt attention to this matter and respectfully request your favorable adjudication of this petition. Sincerely, VeronicaR VasilyR
  2. Hi @Eric The Wait thanks for the detailed response We do not have the wills and durable powers of attorney naming each other as beneficiaries. Is that something that people typically do for this? For the tax return of 2018 that "married filing separately," was just a financial decision. We owed money, and it was a smaller amount if were filed under that status. For 2019, which we did this past Friday, we filed again as "married filing jointly". Its a good idea to add that explanation to the cover letter, though I don't have any objective evidence confirming that. Hope that a simple explanation would be enough Thanks again!
  3. @AstroCanada Thanks! I've been with different visa's literally most of my life, and its always nerve wrecking. Was a bit shocking to learn how long the Removal of Conditions process takes, so I'll have to do a lot of breathing exercises.
  4. thanks for checking it out. I guess I rather go more than not enough, especially since there is no hard definition on what is enough. The Doula contract I though was a good piece of evidence because it has both of our names, as well as our address
  5. Hi all, First time poster. So let me know if I'm not following the protocol for posting. I just wanted to get some input on the list my wife and I are putting together, and see if I have a strong case. Thanks in advance for any input! In addition to the info below, I ran into two main issues my wife's bank statements are from US bank, but are in spanish. Can my wife translate? We don't have a physical correspondence from friend's family. Is below sufficient to supplement this?
