  1. My husband and I have a joint bank account together, however, we just opened the account and our most recent statement says we have nothing in the account. Would a blank check from that account (which obtains both our first and last names) be sufficient enough to scan (front and back) and use as evidence? We also have another joint bank account here in Canada, I have statements and proof of consistent deposits and withdraws from that account, which we are also using as evidence for THAT specific account.
  2. I have lived in 3 different places since after i got my green card. i managed to get and save my current and last residence information (lease, utility bills, letters) to be a supporting document for my I751. The problem is, with my first residence. We lived in my father in-laws' property and we didn't have any rent or utilities that we needed to pay. We also had a mailing address which we used in everything. Now, i don't know how to prove that we lived in that address. I was thinking of getting an affidavit of previous residence but i don't know how to proceed with it. My FIL is always so busy and i doubt he'll have time to help me with this and we live across the country. I need to submit my ROC packet asap. Any tips and suggestions? Thank you!
  3. Good day VJ members. I have a question a friend of mines is asking. She is a US citizen who wants to marry a man from Togo, where I was married. The Togolaise government, however, wants her to show that she is not or has never been married. How do you go about doing that I remember being asked to do the same thing but can't remember how I went about doing so. I remember going to the Togo embassy and getting a form that says I'd never been married but can't remember the whole process. I anyone has a similar experience, please share with me how to go about this. Can you do it state side or do you need to do so in the country you will be married in?
  4. Hi all, For the last few weeks/months I've been gathering and organizing the proof of a bona fide marriage for my wife and I. I have an appointment made on Friday the 14th at the USCIS Field Office in Guangzhou. We're going to try for DCF since we both reside in China. I feel like our evidence is strong and mostly speaks for itself. There are, however, a few things I am a little worried about and feel like I should explain clearly. My thought is to add a cover letter clarifying it. I have contacted USCIS about this, and their response was "do what you think is best." I am wondering if anyone has done this. Am I just being neurotic? If I do add a letter, does it need to be a sworn statement? Thanks for any help!
  5. Good day, Today I finally received the "Packet 4" (e-mail stating I can schedule my appointment for interview in the Frankfurt Consulate). The e-mail said: In order to do your final visa interview we still require the following document(s).Please submit the requested document(s)on the day of your visa interview: - Contract between sponsor (joint sponsor) and household member (I-864A) - Householde member’s Proof of U.S. citizenship or U.S. permanent residency I didn't attach I-864A with my previous paperwork because the Joint Sponsor makes all the money in the household. He does claim his son and spouse as dependent, but stupidly I thought I didn't need their I-864A. Now... the problem is that the spouse of the joint sponsor doesn't have a birth certificate. She only has a midwife certificate. Can I even use that as proof of U.S citizenship? Is this going to be a problem at the interview and can possibly affect my possibility of getting mi visa approved? Thank youu
  6. What kind of proof is required or acceptable by USCIS to prove that he/she was a resident of that particular district for 3 months prior to application of N400? And do we submit that proof along with N400 application?
  7. How important would you guys say the picture's proof dates are important ? What if I only have pictures with a few family members? Are family members even needed in the pictures? How well would you all say the love story needs to be typed? Does it need to be college paper stuff or just something decent?
  8. Hello! Please, I would like help with these questions!! EDIT: Is it acceptable to provide more proof of bona fide marriage with newly acquired documents? Acquired after the interview? For example, can I send an IRA acquired after the interview and/or other new documents/bills/ pictures taken acquired only after the interview? Proof already presented at the interview: - driver license of both showing the same address - joint credit card - joint lease agreement - joint bank account - pictures (all we had)
  9. I was wondering has anyone had airline/hotel tickets brought by a friend who traveled with them? How much does it matter if it was purchased by you or that friend? Can the tickets or passport stamps be printed from the email alone or does it have to be the actually physical versions? Hotel/Airline tickets, Passport stamps, are ok alone or is more needed regarding this kind of proof?
  10. My wife and I are planning to file for her green card soon. We've only been married for 6 months, so we really don't have any co-mingling of our resources (aside from a small essay editing business we started together, but it doesn't amount to much). We've gathered photos and I took screen shots of our communications over the years. The communications are really... difficult. I tried to pick out the best ones I could find, but I am looking for some feedback. We really don't want to delay the process. Thanks for any help you are able to give! Upload Comm.pdf

  12. Hi everyone, My interview will be at the London embassy (hopefully soonish) and I see that we must take “proof of payment” of visa application fee. I have the slip for the money order but this doesn’t state who it was paid to, is there something else that we should have received that confirmed payment? Surely the application would have been rejected if we hadn’t included the correct payment? Are there more fees fees to pay at the interview? I’ve seen posts about paying fees etc and I’m not sure what is what. Any insight would be great, thank you.
  13. The parents of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teenager shot dead while walking home from a convenience store by George Zimmerman, have claimed they are owed at least $150,000 (£110,000) by the Weinstein Company. According to documents filed by Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin in a Delaware bankruptcy court, the company formerly run by the disgraced Hollywood mogul entered into a deal to purchase the rights to a possible movie and TV series based on their book, Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin. Fulton and Martin say the figure is what they are owed as executive producers of a TV series that has been filmed but not yet broadcast. https://www.theguardian.com/film/2018/may/23/trayvon-martins-parents-the-weinstein-company-owes-us-150000
  14. Hi all, thank you so much in advance for this perplexing issue I'm facing. I'm the petitioner of a K1 visa and when I initially submitted the application in early 2016, I mistakenly filled out the G325a form saying that my mom's ex husband was my ex husband. Rookie move, I know, but I really thought it was asking for my parents' marital status, not mine. I've NEVER been engaged until now, much less married. After our second app was approved this month, I received an Intent to Deny (I-797E NOA) stating that since I claimed to be previously married on my first app and now am claiming to have never been married on the second app that I must show a divorce certificate or a certificate of death. How can I prove I've never been married and that the initial app was a mistake? I only have 30 days to reply and I'm freaking out. I'm tearing up as I write this because the approval came as such a pleasant surprise and then the intent to deny really crushed my heart and I need to find any way to fix it. I really need to be with my fiance soon because we've been separated for 2 years now and I miss him extremely. I can always move there if I need to, but I would rather we live here because it's safer. Thank you!
  15. I thought I'd post here and see We are months away from the interview (months away from NOA2, actually) but wanted to start to prepare early, so I've been working on a document for proof of on-going relationship. Since there won't be any new visits, we're relying on texts, FaceTime calls and receipts of what we have sent each other. I've searched for what Sydney requires... and I'm wondering if I'm going to over-do it. Because so far, and I've cut a few messages out, there's like 500 message screenshots. I resize them so the amount of pages will be ALOT less. I'm wondering if this is still overkill? If we would still be okay with evidence of FaceTime calls, skype dates (where we both are in the picture), receipts of gifts, and maybe just a handful of messages per month... I want to be prepared but I don't want to spend unnecessary time on it, either, you know? Thanks all!
  16. I noticed that on state.gov it said that pay stubs must be "on signed, business letterhead." I am curious on what this means since most pay stubs do not have a signature and I do not work directly with a supervisor. I am also unable to quickly obtain a letter of employment as it would require me to navigate corporate bureaucracy. Will I be fine if I just submit a normal pay stub with my name and the company logo?
  17. Hello all, I asked this question in the general thread and was advised to come to the 'straya sub-forum, so here I am My question is that I am petitioning my Fiance to come to California from Melbourne. Due to finishing up school last year and only working part time during it, I didn't make the minimum financial requirements during the 2017 tax year. With my current job, however, I do make enough money. Will it be necessary to have someone cosign for us, even though I make enough money now? Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
  18. Hello Everyone, After submitting the petition, I am a little confused about whether or not we included everything I need for "proof". I am reading through posts and the reviews/experiences with Ghana embassy seem to be varied, but many have negative experiences regarding the K-1 Approval. My fiance and I met in person when we both worked in the Middle East. The first part our relationship was in person and we continued our relationship long distance after I moved back to the States. I visited Ghana (his home country) last year for the first time to meet his family and he proposed. In the petition, we included about 6 pictures of us together, visa stamps and a few of our engagement photos. Now, I am reading that many suggest including chat logs/phone logs, pictures with friends/family, cards/love letters and other items to frontload the petition. Is this something we can correct when we submit the proof of ongoing relationship at the interview? I was under the assumption that only proof of meeting in the last 2 years was needed, but I guess I was wrong.
  19. Is putting my non-resident spouse on my LLC company a good idea for proof of bon fide marriage? My Spouse is from the Philippines, i am from USA. we tried to open a bank account in the Philippines but no bank would let me do it because i did not live there. I think she cant get put on my bank account here in the USA from what i heard on the internet. I spoke to North Carolina Secretary of State today and they confirmed i can put her on my LLC as a member/owner. however im not to sure about what the IRS and USCIS are going to think about that. also im thinking if I do it she cannot work for the company nor earn an income because then it be like the company hired an illegal alien and i think thats against the law here. it would be kinda cool if it works because i could then show the we own the company and the company owns this bank account and it owns these bills etc. and thus we have joint accounts and bills together : )
  20. Hello everybody! My fiance just scheduled his interview in Johannesburg, South Africa for March 20, so we're hurrying to make sure we have all of the required documents/proof in order! Those of you who have already attended an interview and gotten accepted for the visa, what did you use as proof of your relationship? We sent a LOT of proof with our I-129F, so I'm not sure what more I need to bring. (I'll be attending with him, so instead of mailing things I will be bringing them with me). I'm thinking: - Multiple photos of us. From the last time we saw one another, the first time we met, everything in between, engagement, and photos taken of us skyping, etc. - Skype/Facetime chat logs (There's a LOT) - Gifts/Packages/Mail we've sent to one another while apart - Social Media posts/comments shared (I'm not sure if this would even be considered as proof of a relationship) - what else would we need?
  21. Hello, I'm back with more questions. I just got my W2's and due to me having finished up college last year, I didn't work full time for much of the year and only made about $13k. I now have a somewhat better job that would put me over the minimum threshold to not need a person to cosign on my fiance coming from Australia. My question is, do you show proof of financial responsibility using previous W2's? Because if so, I did not make enough money. I am unclear how that process works in the visa journey. Thank you all! Edit: I am in California petitioning for my Australian fiance to come here to the States.
  22. Hi everyone, We are about 3 years into this process (K-1, AOS,) and will soon be going for the permanent green card. I would like to suggest an idea for proof of relationship that could be helpful. We don't share bank accounts (and it would be a nightmare to do so) and I already had a mortgage in my name, so we didn't have any of those really substantial proofs. So, we are going to submit our Airbnb history page. It lists both of our names and a review of how we were as guests. The reviews are written by the hosts (so third party-which seems more substantial than a letter from a friend) and in order to get registered as a guest you have to submit photo ID. So, in essence it shows we traveled together, over a period of time, which for us is the whole time he has been in the US. This can be backed up with gas receipts etc. if needed. We will let you know how it goes after our interview in about 8 months.
  23. I have sufficient income more than enough required by immigrations, but I draw Federal workmans comp how do I prove this I have a court order of payment
  24. I've seen posts where people were advised that it's okay to enter the US on a tourist visa and marry as long as they go back to their home country and apply for CR1. However, how can you show proof of bonafide marriage if you just married and left? I read the CR1 instructions and besides the affidavids by third parties I cannot really think of any other evidence. What else can be provided?
  25. I was told that we need 30 letters each snail mail for proof of relationship. our burned up in the fire in cebu PI. But we have 1800 pages of what aap chat. does that count? plus we are told no money chat or love chat can be in the conversation. is that true? 1800 pages is alot to edit.
