I-751 Interview

New York, NY |

When we submitted our documents for I-751, we provided documents with both our names on every billing statements. And on our interview day, can we bring our personal/separate bank account and credit card account with the same mailing address on our interview just to prove that we have the same address?

Also, can I bring more documents on the day of our interview? additional utility bills, joint bank account statements, phone bills, additional affidavits? IRS tax transcript for 2 years because we only provided 2 years of 1040 forms (I know IRS is preferred).

  1. Yes. Bring more docs. If they scheduled an interview, it means USCIS wasn't impressed by the amount of evidence you provided.


  2. I-751 interviews happen rarely. It's not something that you should anticipate. Interviews happen in around 10% of cases.

    Attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship. Please consult with an immigration attorney to get complete answers to your legal questions.


  3. You should absolutely bring more documents to the interview. The focus is usually on your joint life together - financial, social, etc. You will want to focus on the joint documents. I recommend that you go see an immigration attorney for a consultation before your interview so you know what to expect.

Answers on Avvo can only be general ones, as specific answers would require knowledge of all the facts. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advice specific to your case.
