Can i send money to my fiancee?

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

i`m the nonUS citizen and i wanted to ask you if we would have any problem if i send a one time Western Union to my fiancee.

Usually he`s the one sending me money but this time we have a situation where i need to send.

Now, what i`m afraid of:from what i`ve heared usually at the interwiew i have to show evidence that he sends me money to prove i`m not paying him to help me imigrate or something like that.

Do you think they will know about this western union and will it cause problems if they do?it`s a one time thing

Thank you

I've never heard of such a thing at an interview, though I suppose it is possible at a consulate in a country that is considered high fraud - I don't think Romania qualifies there. They'll only know if you tell them about it which I wouldn't do unless they specifically ask you - and I'd be surprised if they do.

I usually recommend that people leave any financial transactions out of their pile of evidence completely.

The passing of money between people can so easily be misconstrued as something else.

If you do that, then there's no need to worry about who way paying who, either!

The Manila consulate has a habit of asking benificiaries for proof of fiancial support from their petitioners.

But as previously mentioned, the DoS doesn't monitor Western Union or banking transactions. Unless you told them you sent money, they would not know. Good luck.

i had my interview there,they are not interested in things like that...their main concern is proof of a real relationship and telling the truth when you answer consul's questions,and on your papers...as long as your relationship is real, u will be fine...Iti urez succes...

That should not be a problem at all as long as it's legal. And I don't see why it would be considered illegal. Just keep a paper trail, like Western Union, and keep tabs on why you sent the money, even if it was just as a gift. You should not have a problem. If you are really nervous, contact the USCIS directly and ask them if it would be a problem. If you have nothing to hide, you are fine.

This is rather an easy questiosn to figure out... There is not law that prohibits fiances and fiancees from exchanging gifts or cash, however, it is upto the petitioner to proove that he or she is capable of supporting the beneficiary once they arrive in the US. This actually comes in the form of 1-134 (Affidavit of support) that must be presented to the consular during interview. Without the complete satisfaction of this form, your K-1 petition will be rejected.

@HandA:

The question was not about the I-134 or the proof of affidavit of support.It was about the info i had that if the beneficiary sends money to the petitioner the CO might consider the beneficiary is paying the petitioner to help imigrate.

But it has been cleared up for me and since that`s not the case i`m feeling much better! :yes:

Thank you so much everybody for your replies!

I as always think outside the box. Since 2004 I have sent many travelers checks to my fiancée in Thailand,

not for her basic support (she was employed full time and had a good job) but for something extra she needed,

as I knew she had a son in the best university and that she would never abuse my generosity. She

never asked for money but I was always there to help in any case.

The method we used may come as a surprise: AMEX travelers' checks in ordinary mail, not registered.

I felt comfortable with this because if they got stolen or sidetracked, there would be a full refund as

I had copies of all the receipts. Her name was on all of them so nobody else could cash them without

impersonating her. Thai banks are notorious for not trusting even their own regular depositors.

All she did was bring it to a bank where she had an account and the exchange rate would be even

BETTER than cash dollars. Usually it was in amounts of $500-$1000 and there was never any problem.

The checks were free at my credit union and the money was taken directly from my account to AMEX.

If you ask any banker if this is a good idea they will invariably tell you NO, as they are more than

willing to sell you their "value-added" money transfer services, as is Western Union. I have always

ignored them and have been very happy with the results.

Just be sure to enclose the check within plain white paper folded around it so the casual observer

would not suspect that there was a check within. If you are not in the habit of sending snail-mail

to your fiancé(e), you might send a few trial letters with no checks to see if they get tampered with

or stolen. Her neighborhood had fairly good & reliable postal service, so I felt OK about doing this.

This may vary from country to country. Never send cash.
