Photos are secondary evidence?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

  Hello everyone,

First things first, thank you all to the VJ community and members I have began to form friendships with and helping each other get our loved ones together.

My question is, I've been reading about what to use as evidence and I find it odd that photos are considered "Secondary evidence" why is that?

I understand that passport photos are primary, but....I would think photos would be too? it's documented evidence of a couple together in one shot. Just a curious question.

Thank you all.

Because photos don’t prove that you’ve met in the past 2 years like passport stamps, boarding passes and hotel receipts do. Those have dates on.

Even if photos have a time stamp on them?

I’m not the one making the rules here but playing devils advocate, you can change a time and date manually on photos. 

On the other hand photos of you and your fiancé’s family are encouraged in order to prove you’ve met the family.

@SoCalMan Yes photos can be fake and what not, but if you relationship is real, I`m sure you have way more than that.....

  • Photos 
  • Phone messages
  • Postal cards
  • Emails
  • Gift proofs etc....

Dont be affraid of providing too much evidence, simple gather everything you have, put in order, explain the situation and you will be ok. Good Luck :)
