Hello I had a question about chat logs. Me and my wife use WhatsApp and I found out how to print the log. However I have a few issues.

1. It's both in English and Spanish 

2. It will be in plan text with date and time.

3. If I print it it will be 65,535 pages in Word.

 

This is a mobile app for those who don't know. I know that is way to much plus there are some very personal conversations as I am sure everyone have with thier partner. I can take a screen shot but that only has about 4-5 post per screen shot. How have others done this? Anyone else have this issue?

We use WhatsApp too. I just picked about 4 or 5 conversations per month, took a screen shot, and pasted the screen shot into a blank Word doc. I made sure the screenshots each showed the date and arranged them in order on the Word doc. We should be very close to receiving our NOA2 and haven’t received any RFE’s or anything. I’ve read many times where they don’t care too see every conversation you’ve ever had, but just a basic sampling that shows consistent communication between both of you.

Ok Thank you for the quick responce.

 

So it should not matter that the language is not all English then.

 

When you printed your pictures did you use normal paper or photo paper?

I think I remember reading somewhere that it need to be a certain kind but can not find info about it now.

I don’t believe chat logs need to be translated. Just as long as they at least show the dates and the fact that you communicate on a regular basis should be enough. 

 

I just printed my Word docs that had our sampling of WhatsApp conversations in color and on regular printer paper. I did the same thing for photos of ourselves as well. Just make sure you have a good quality printer, or just do like I did and have them printed at a copy center like Office Max.

Just a representative sample of chat messages is sufficient in most cases. A page (or couple pages) per month is usually fine. YMMV.

No it won't, because you will run off of ink/toner, paper, probably the fuser lifetime, and sanity long before that finishes. :P

Also, it would likely be missing pages...65535 is a limit (16-bit unsigned integer), so I'm assuming it just cut off at that point.

No I wasn't planning on printing that many pages just was asking how other did it. I am sure others have chat logs even longer.

Unless a high fraud country, chats for the petition are a waste of time.  Also, anything submitted to the USCIS must be translated into English

Correct me if I am wrong. I do not think Panama is considered high fraud. However my wife was born in Venezuela but has lived in Panama for awhile now. She is a resident of Panama and has her card.

By I submitted zero pages with my petition.  USCIS is determining eligibility for the Visa and is not concerned with valid ongoing relationship, that is what the embassy does

Yes but understand that I do not have anything else other than a marriage certificate, plane flights, and pictures to prove our marriage is real. That is why I wanted to include more.

The concept is to provide examples of how and how frequently you communicate.

If that were completely true, then the USCIS would never RFE for relationship evidence nor require any with the I-130 petition.  However they do both.

You bet they do.  More importantly, Consular Officers making the final visa decision are not required to consider any relationship evidence that was not in the original file.  You include relationship evidence primarily for the Consular Officer.  USCIS instructions or website will never tell you that.  It's why...  Facts are cheap...knowing how to use them is precious...
