WU money transfers as additional proof of relationship. Yes or No?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow VJ'ers! So I'm preparing to fedex my fiance my G325a, letter of intent to marry, and other bunch of paperwork that I have here with me for him to include in his application for the i129f, I just wanna know if it is advisable to include some money transfer transactions we have exchanged over the years. (I'm not mooching off of him, I have my own source of income, we have planned the K1 visa since he migrated to the US from the Philippines some years ago, and thought it would be viable to use it as proof of relationship). How correct or incorrect am I? :cry: I have seen that this has been a somewhat divided topic among members here and I really don't know which way to go about it.

1. Should I let him include those money transfer transactions in his application?

2. Would that be a good evidence for relationship or would it possibly be a red flag to the CO?

Younger me did not think it through then. I am most definitely thinking about it now. hahaha, :rofl:

3. How would you guys go about it? Yes or No?

Any answer would really help. I hope this helps others as well. :star:

Thanks VJ!

The best evidence is pictures. Pictures of the two of you together in loving poses ie. holding hands, arms around each other and the two of you sightseeing together. Don't forget FAMILY photos show they can see that he has met the family at social gatherings.

Keep the money aspect out of it. Chat logs will do nicely. They don't want years and years of pictures and logs. Just 12 pictures and a few pages of chat logs spread over the years. They are more incline to ask you questions and when you look them in the eye and say it with confidence that alone will go a long way.

The interview is less than 5 min. Usually, based on your submitted paperwork before hand, they have a good idea of what they are going to do before they even meet you at the window. Don't be disappointed if they don't even ask for pictures.

Thank you so much for this! suffice to say we won't be including the money xfers in our application. We just have to sift through our photos then we're good to go. Projected day of filing would be 05 June 2015. and thank you for your guide, it's been very helpful. *cheers*

It is not a negative to include copies of WU transfers, in fact the embassy instructions letter list them as suggested evidence of a genuine engagement.

EVIDENCE OF A GENUINE ENGAGEMENT. You must prove to the consular officer that you have a genuine relationship with your petitioner and a clear intention to marry within 90 days of admission into the United States. In the past, successful applicants have submitted photographs, letters, e-mails, phone records, bank records, and remittance records as evidence supporting their relationships and intent to marry.
