  1. Sorry for cutting into this thread. But, what are ways to prove residency for 5 years? We don't rent so there's no lease. We bought a house earlier this year but it's in a trust and my name isn't on the deed.
  2. Hey, my situation was very similar to yours. Arrived in the states on a B2 Visa as a child. My overstay was at the 27 year mark when I applied for AOS for marrying USC (same-sex couple as well). The immigration officer never asked me any questions about my overstay. All the questions were about our relationship. She didn't even ask anything about my work record or anything like that. Good luck!
  3. Paul & Mary is right, an affidavit of support is an I-864. But if you want to include affidavits from friends/family, below is the guideline my attorney had us send to family and friends which they then followed to write their letters. LAW OFFICES OF August 25, 2020 To the Relatives and Friends of ______________ and _______________: I represent ________ in her immigration matters. As part of ____’s immigration process, she must establish that she and her wife, _____________, married in good faith because they genuinely want to spend their lives together. If you are reading this letter, it means that _______ and ________ have asked for your assistance. Please write a letter, addressed “To whom it may concern.” Please include the date on the top of your letter. The letter should include: 1. Your name, date and place of birth, and the country of which you are a citizen. If you are not a U.S. citizen, but are living in the United States, please include your immigration status in the United States (i.e. lawful permanent residence and your “A” number). 2. Your address and phone number. 3. Based on your personal knowledge, please include as much information as you can in your statement regarding the following points: Ø The date and circumstances regarding when you first met ______ and _______ and your relationship withthem.

Please either sign your statement before a notary public or include the following sentence at the beginning of your statement: “I hereby affirm, under penalty of perjury, that the following is true and correct to the best of my knowledge.” Please make sure you sign your statement.
  4. Not sure if you still need guidance on the affidavits, but I've copy and pasted the guideline my attorney had me send to friends and family below. I've put blanks where are names were. Most people's letters were one page long and my attorney was happy with that, as well as the IO since they approved my green card.

  5. It was a pretty general RFE just saying we provided insufficient evidence. The only specific thing they asked for was tax transcripts. We had provided them our returns from TurboTax but apparently they prefer transcripts. We retained a lawyer to help with the RFE and some of their notes as to why they think we got an RFE and their advice: 1. We only provided the most recent lease. In the RFE response we provided all previous years we lived together. 2. We stupidly forgot to include my wife's driver's license in the initial evidence. 3. We only sent one bank statement for each year we've had the account together. Our lawyer advised that we send 3 statements from each year. 4. I had provided copies of our health insurance cards. Lawyer suggested we get a letter from my wife's employer stating when I was added to her insurance 3 years ago. 5. In the initial packet, I had printed out a page from my retirement account showing my wife as the sole beneficiary. However, nowhere on that page did it have my name on it. Just my account number. So the lawyer had me re-submit that and submit one of the monthly statements that had my name on it and the correlating account number highlighted on both pages. Those were the missteps we made. In an effort to make our case stronger, we responded with affidavits from friends, family, and coworkers. A ton more pictures. Some wedding invites from friends addressed to both of us. A notarized letter from the dog rescue group we adopted our dog from and a letter from my wife's employer stating I was added as her emergency contact and that I'm the sole beneficiary to her retirement account.
  6. I Filed I-751 in June 2019. Got an RFE in May 2020. USCIS received RFE response 9/4/2020. New Card is Being Produced on 9/10/2020. And on 9/15/2020 I got an email saying my case was approved and the green card is in the mail. The RFE process was a lot quicker than I anticipated! Just thought I'd share my I-751 timeline. I hope you all get good news soon!
  7. I'm a June 2019 Filer and my card is in production as of yesterday. Did not have an interview for I-751. My general timeline: June 2019 Self-filed I-751 November 2019 Biometrics May 2020 RFE September 4 Nebraska Service Center received my RFE response (I retained a lawyer for this) September 10 Card in Production
