In What Form To Send Skype and Email Communication?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have tons of skype and email conversations saved. My question is how do I print them out? Should I copy and paste them into Word documents, take screen shots, or what? It seems like copy and paste is the easiest but wouldn't hold much validity because they can easily be faked or changed. How did you guys and gals do it? Thanks for any help!

We actually just took a screenshot of my email inbox (single page), and that was sufficient. To tell you the truth, I don't think it would have made any difference if it hadn't been there at all.

For me, what worked is:

I did a few pages of screenshots of my Skype incoming and outgoing call History, (It can be found in the menu of Skype) and printed it out. I wrote on the bottom of the first Skype History screenshot printout, "Incoming and Outgoing call history of my fiance and I on video call program, Skype." We talk twice a day, everyday, so my history on skype was around 7 printed pages! :o

As long as your skype name is your actual full name, and your fiance's full name it shouldn't be a problem. If they are more like a screen name, I would mention who is who in a footnote of sorts.

I also printed out various e-mails (their translations from Japanese, plus the translation certificate also included), ranging from the date I came home from Japan up until the filing of the visa. I didn't screenshot my inbox though, I didn't really think of it. But it didn't seemingly matter, since I had nearly 1lb. of emails, the translations, and 7 pages of Skype History. It worked.

Best of luck, and you have my best wishes!

I guess I can't really imagine that they care so much what you two talk about, but rather how much you talk at all. To me, a summary log of your Skype (Date, time, duration) history would be quite powerful. The same with any chat/email logs. A shot of your inbox or for example googlechat where you can see the size and date of emails/chats would show how often you two are communicating.

Without trying, Nik and I had 3-5 emails per day plus ~100 lines of chat per day, and usually at least one skype call - longer ones on the weekend. One look at my inbox would show "Nik Nik Nik Nik Nik Mom Nik Nik Nik USCIS Nik Nik Junk mail Nik Nik Nik Nik Mom Nik Nik Nik Wedding coordinator Nik Nik Nik Nik Nik....."

On the other hand, sending in emails just gives them some ammunition, especially for a high fraud consulate. More than one couple here on VJ thought it was fun to call each other "husband" and "wife" sometimes in their emails, and when they provided the specific emails - guess what, they were denied a FIANCE visa because they provided their own evidence against themselves. There are many other similar ways to shoot yourself in the foot, since you've now provided all of those communications which were created with a casual intention as very serious evidence.

For Kiev, you probably won't need any of that. Most people who read that comment just ignore it and print out reams of material anyway, but you can get by with a small selection of email. My wife had a binder+, and they looked at a couple of pics and a tax return. Don't sweat it.
