UK to US Marriage, Filing while living abroad.

Hi all,

I have a few questions I hope I could have some help with.

So me and my wife(us citizen) have been married for 2 years now, together for 4. I live in the UK currently while she lives in the US. I had to stay in the UK due to my job, however we have now filed i-130 and started the process for me to come there. We have a lawyer working with us, which has been a great help, but I’d like to hear from others experiences.

Obviously once I go for my interview here in the UK they’ll want to see proof that the marriage is real. My only worry is that, we can’t have a shared bank account/bills etc.

What should I bring to help this? I do have photos of us together during travel and trips we took together (LA,FL,PA,NY,HI and the UK) I have some photos of us together with each other’s family too. I also took emergency leave from work for a month to go to the US while my mother in law was severely ill (she passed away the day after I got there, I’m extremely close with her family) this was during the pandemic so my work wrote me a letter explaining the situation to allow my travel (due travel restrictions and they even covered my PCR test)

So are those pictures alone enough? And I’m also curious as to what the interview will be like, does anyone have experience of doing the interview as the spouse planning to move while in their home country? What can expect, and expect to be asked.

Thank you all I’m advance!

NVC Case FE Review note

Hi everyone, my family and I are under the F3 category and we just received a notice from NVC that our documents have been approved and that we are Documentarily Qualified. My only concern is this message that we received today in addition to the acceptance: ​ " [Name of petitioner] does not meet the minimum income requirement to sponsor the intending immigrants for this case. The consular officer will make a decision regarding this requirement at the time of the interview. For more information, please visit . To avoid delays, an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 for a joint sponsor may be submitted." ​ We already have a petitioner and a household sponsor (the household sponsor's income is above the required level), but still unsure why we received this. Has anyone else received this message? All of our documents say "Approved" on NVC. Does this mean we have to find another sponsor? Can we show the consular officer our
