evidence of meeting

Regarding evidence of meeting and having a real relationship, what do you all suggest? Here is what I have:

I bought my plane tickets online, and tossed my boarding passes. But I do have the itineraries from 2 trips, as well as the stamps on my passport.

Most stuff I paid for in cash, I have only one credit card receipt for a hotel, but there's no reference to 2 people or my fiance.

The photos I took- I dont know how to get them to print with the date on them. I tried to figure it out .... I have about 7 pictures of us together, plus one of me and his mom, spanning 2 separate trips.

His mom and boss wrote letters saying they are happy we are getting married and that they met me while i was there. A mutual friend (American) did the same. My uncle, a minister, wrote a letter on church letterhead saying that he will be marrying us when my fiance gets here.

I have emails and phone bills too.

Any other ideas? Is this enough?

Thanks a lot.....after reading the RFE thread, I just really don't want to go there!

Maybe the airline company can do something for you. To show that you boarded the plane. An Itinerarie doesn't prove that you actually went on the plane.

Passport stamps prove you were in the country. Nobody cares whether you flew or swam.

Frankly, I'd skip most or all of the letters you mentioned. They might be good to have in your back pocket for the interview but are not needed with the fiance petition. They don't prove you met. The pictures will be fine without dates.

You can write the names of the people, the place and dates on the back of the pictures with pen or pencil. An itinerary is all I had submitted - so its not what evidence is best but what's enough for the examiner. (I didn't submit letters, hotel bills or anything else - just two pictures of us together with a copy of the itinerary). You do what makes you comfortable. Good Luck

They're only at this point strictly interested in your primary evidence that you were actually together. Use your passport stamps and the itineraries, that's proof enough. Send in the hotel bill receipt too.

I sent in a bunch of secondary evidence with mine just in case it helped (the letters and photos and whatnot), but if you're not going to see your SO until you've actually got the visa, you might want to hang onto a few of these items until the interview. They want to see evidence of ongoing relationship then; maybe they wouldn't be so impressed if you only showed them a bunch of stuff that they'd already seen. (though presumably by the time of the interview you will have more emails/phone bills at least).

I would send in a little bit of secondary but that's just me. At least a couple pictures. Mine weren't dated, I just estimated the date and location on the back in pencil.

Your passport with the stamps on them are enough proof that you were in the country. The flight itinerary will also be good to include. If you don't have dated photos you can just send in the ones you have. Make sure you write a nice circumstance of meeting letter of how you met her.

This is what we sent as proof of meeting:

Copy of Brazilian visas from passport

Copy of stamped entries into Brazil

Copy of teaching certificate from Brazil

Copy of both sides of Brazilian residency card with translation

Copy of Flight Coupons and the itinerary from last trip

Receipt from hotel and business card with translation

Pictures (6) from 2004 to 2006

We also sent proof of ongoing relationship. I think it's better to send a little bit of everything, also gives you peace of mind that you did what you had to, you know?

We had one affidavit from a friend about our ongoing relationship - maybe only one will do for you too.

Good luck!
