I m new to visajourney! My husband and I recently got married and my vacation time in the US is coming to an end BUT we re ready to embark on a new journey and start the CR-1 visa process. We re slowly but surely getting our papers and proof together but I did have a couple of questions regarding the process. I m also anxious by nature and we want to get this right the first time around so dear Visajourney, I had a couple of questions for you regarding the process.
Firstly, both of us communicate constantly through Facebook when we re apart. We never really used text message unless we were travelling to each other. We also use discord to talk, because we usually play video games together as we re talking. It s just a lot easier for the both of us and we both avoid long distance charges. Would USCIS approve of screenshots taken of our conversations via Facebook or is there another way I could go about doing this?
Secondly, my husband and I aren t huge on picture taking but we do have selfies together from each visit. We don t have very many pictures of us with each other s families (we do have a couple). We have a lot of pictures from the wedding though that include both families. I was wondering if that would be a problem with USCIS or NVC? And how many pictures should I send?
Seeing as it s impossible for my husband and I to own joint property or a joint bank account (I live in Canada and he lives in the US) we decided to ask a couple of friends to write an affidavit, stating that we have had an ongoing relationship for the past three years and that we still have an ongoing relationship today. We will be getting it notarized as well. Has anyone else done this?
As for more proof, he has letters that I ve sent from the beginning of our relationship, we have our Amtrak tickets from previous trips, I will be getting phone records to prove that I ve called him and his family, I have Christmas cards from previous holidays and we have invitations and programs from our wedding as well as our wedding vows to each other (we wrote letters to give to each other prior to the wedding ceremony). Is there anything else that I should include?
