Default Credit card statements, to I-751 filers

We are collecting evidence for our future I-751. We have several joint credit card accounts and some accounts where one of us is the account holder and another one is authorized user.
Anyway, when we receive cc statements, we have to send the top part with both names along with payment back to the cc companies. How do we prove that the account is on our both names/joint, since the part that says it is usually gone?
It would be nice to know what other people, who already filed I-751, did in such cases.
thanks

Hi bantik,

I have one bill that comes like that. Only my name is on the portion we keep to file, but both our names are on the remit portion. I've called and they can't change that. So, before I pay that bill, I make a photocopy of the page with the remit portion on it. Then when I send back the remit portion, I still have the photocopy that has both our names on there. We're not filing I-751 until 2007, but I'm starting to save early.

Best Wishes,
Rene

They have this great device nowadays... it's called a photocopier! Hey, there's even one for home use... it's called a scanner! Consider one or the other *before* you actually mail the silly thing. This isn't rocket science.

Hi:

In addition to the bills, attach photocopies of the actual credit cards -- they have the same number.

Our joint credit cards have same numbers, and each of us has his/her own set of basically same plastic. So when it came to I-751, we just photocopied credit cards in the sets of two, side-by-side, with same numbers but different names. In cover letter we pointed out this fact. Just another option...

If I don't amaze you, I'll have to try something new! As the resident sanctimonious prick, I like to amaze everyone! I'll try to do better for you.

I still pay and mail all my bills by check, the old fashioned way. Oh wait, there are 2 that I pay by a transfer from checking to credit card. I suppose there will be a day when they no longer accept physical payment, but only electronic. ***sigh***

Actually, I do as well. I honestly do not like paying online. Have had problems with that in the past and will not attempt it again. I rather like writing the check and supporting the post office ;-)

Amazing, isn't it?!

On the credit card billing front: My bills show only my (USC) name; the DAH is an authorized user (but has still received credit reporting benefits as a result) so I photcopied both cards, included a copy of the billing printout (paperless) and went into my controls on the bank website and found the page that showed 'all authorized users' and printed that out. so I have the bill that show my name + addy, the 2 cards and the authorized users printed from the 'official' looking site which matched the billing page.

It worked for us, in combination with the other evidence.
