The how we met question

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I almost ready to send in my I129 next week. I was wondering though about the how we met question.

I put something Similar to this: " Allan and I met in early July of 2007 whiel both attending a Bile class at ------ church in jinja, Uganda. we were in the class from July to November togeather. We got engaged in April 2008."

Do I need more info? the question asks how you met, but I know a lot of people go into details on a second page. What do you think??

While it is okay for you to keep it succinct, most put a bit more detail. Remember that you are trying to show the person reading and adjudicating your application that there is an ongoing relationship and that you met in person. Your primary evidence that you submit (receipts and passport stamps) should help to support what you have written. If you have too little information you might get a RFE (Request for Evidence) if the person puts down too little detail, and if you put anything questionable you could also cause a bump in the process. Your case shows a coincidental meeting, as opposed to two people who met through an agency and would therefore potentially need to meed IMBRA requirements. Based on what you listed, you don't have to worry about IMBRA...it's just an example. You might want to add how often you saw each other, state if you gave her a ring (then send the receipt as secondary evidence).

Thanks! I am not really worried about supporting evidance, I have visa stamps with one year missionary visa, bank statment showing ATM withdrawls from all over Uganda, including the town we met, the city he lives in currently and his home village, and lots of other things.

But I just wanted to make sure i didn't need to add more details in my awnser

USCIS adjudicators are only concerned about having met. Evidence of ongoing relationship is for the Consulate stage.
