Me and my wife will have AOS interview in February in Chicago.

Asked over 1 year ago - Elk Grove Village, IL

Her relationship with her boss is really bad and probably boss "will not have time" to sign employment letter. Are pay stubs enough?

    Answered . It depends on what you are trying to establish. If this is a marriage-based AOS and you are trying to show income, then pay stubs may be enough, but if you are trying to show something else, like for an employment-based AOS, then you may need a letter. You may want to consult with an attorney directly. Good luck!

    Answered . Should be enough. You should consider collecting as much evidence as possible, and may want an attorney at the interview.

    Answered . Bring as much evidence of your wife's employment status as you can to the interview. You are right that a recent letter from the employer on company letterhead is the best evidence of employment, but you can also bring pay stubs or letters from fellow employees. If you have received a W2 for 2012, you can bring that as well.

    Answered . We never know what is 'enough' ... a lot depends on the person conducting the interview.

    Yes, pay stubs .. ALL of them since you got married and bank statements ... ALL of them since you got married ... are a good start.

    Does the employer have a bookkeeper? Maybe he/she can write a simple employment confirmation letter.

    Hiring a lawyer is always a good idea.

    Answered . The letter from her employer would certainly be very helpful. However, if she cannot acquire one, gather and present any other evidence that can support you case, including but not limited to pay stubs. Good luck to you.
