Hi, Visa Journey users!

So I'm going for my K-1 visa interview in Montreal next week and I'm nervous as ever! My question is in regards to showing an ongoing relationship. I cannot access my phone records showing my calls to my fiancé in New York. I use phone cards so her actual number doesn't show up on record. I also logged into my call history with my phone company and it only goes so far back. What do I do in this case? because that is the honest truth of the matter. I have Facebook conversations but I'm not really an avid user of social media so there would be some inconsistency with our message logs. I also have several itineraries and see her every three months or so out of the year, will that help? Do I explain the circumstance when I go for my interview? Everything else I've prepared seems to be in order for my interview date except for this situation. I just hope this all works out in my favour. Answers would be great thanks!

I actually had a question like this last week (My interview is on the 7th of may) as prepaid phones are common place in Ireland and it was what me and my fiance used while he lived here. If you have the call card receipts or the call cards that could be helpful. But mostly the most important thing would be to be honest about using call cards because of it being cheaper, and that there is no record of it on your phone. The in person meetings will be more substantial from what i can gather so itineraries and photos will be a good thing. I know what you are going through, I have felt so sick the last few days with worry about this interview. I just get so stressed.

I am sort of surprised it is something they would ask for.

Call records and Facebook conversations are secondary evidences. Much more important to have fotos. I'm sure if you show Facebook, skype ? logs along with fotos just to prove that your relationships are still ongoing it will be enough.

I'm a wreck of pure nervousness myself at this point lol. Trust me I understand how you feel completely. My interview is actually on the 12th of May, yikes! Like you said, in other words at this point it is just best to gather as much proof as possible and be honest and clear with your answers. I feel the main thing they're looking for out of you in the interview process is you just showing them how much your spouse really means to you. All of the other paper work are just facts and this entire visa process is not just solely based off of facts alone. If that were the case a far more greater amount of people would apply and be approved who shouldn't be. The best of luck to you! Just try and stay calm and be organized. Be prepared for potential questions like this one we are currently discussing that way you'll have more power to support your case.

They very rarely ask for proof of relationship at Montreal (recommend you check out the consulate reviews if you haven't). The interview was an incredibly easy process since I basically knew exactly what to expect after reading posts on visajourney. Relax!

Your itineraries/passport stamps/any photos should be more than enough. I took a few letters and photos but none of it was asked for. They care about all the other documents and i-134 supporting evidence, so have those organized.

You have evidence of your visits? That should be fine. No call logs, social media records, etc should be needed. My fiancee just brought photos and my boarding passes and it was enough.
