My fiancee went to her interview in late May and was told that she will be contacted with the outcome.  After two months of waiting, the embassy finally called and requested that she bring Western Union or Money Gram receipts. She had submitted our emails and photos that we took during my two trips in the past 12 months. I am a bit worried about the Western Union receipts because I sent her money only 4 times in the past 12 months and I am not sure if the amounts is sufficient (About 75 to 250 dollars per transaction).  She is living with her parents and does not fully depend on me.  Has anyone went through such a situation and what was the outcome.  Can a consular officer refuse to issue a visa on the ground of insufficient financial support during the relationship ?

Considering this is your fiancee' financial support is not expected. usually when they ask its to see how much money to make sure in their view a green card isn't being bought.

 

Something has made them look at how much money you are sending. Did you submit emails or something stating such.

I am the petitioner living in the US and I am the one who sent the money, not her.

That is ok because they dont require you to support her before interview. I dont believe that green card is bought because you sent it to her from US . If she sent money to US then CO thinks she tried to buy green card not the other way around.
