Hi TD bank people,
I just moved to the US and got married a few weeks ago an I am planning on opening an checking account. I am living in my US-citizen wife's home. Due to my current situation, I do not have anything like credit card statement, phone/utilities bill or landlord contract proof(I am living with my new family, anyway). All I have now is the passport from my original country, International driving permit with photo issued by my country, Photo-IDs from my original country(no English on it). And the proof of address I have is a official marriage certificate issued by New York city. Other than that are several slits of packages sent to me via online purchase. Can I still possibly open an basic checking account with these documents? I urgently need an US account.
Thanks a lot for your kind assistance.

Thanks for considering TD Bank, Vincent. We'll be sure to provide you with some helpful information today.
