What kind of proof do I send? My online love proposed online in Oct 08, in personal on his knee 2 July 09, I have his travel documents, a pic us together, him with my sis and a pic of our hands with the engagement ring. Will this be enough?

What stage are you at in the K-1 process? Is this for the initial filling?

What they're looking for as far as "evidence of engagement" goes, is a letter of intent from both you and your fiance pledging your intent to marry within 90 days of your entering the US on the visa.

There's an example form here: http://www.visajourney.com/content/examples

I'm not really aware they want more "proof of engagement" other than your letters of intent, and the fact that you two are legally able/willing to marry within 90 days of your entrance into the US - at this point. That will also include showing proof via divorce decrees from a previous marriage of either the petitioner or beneficiary, it if applies. Some people also include the marriage certificate from their previous marriage, as well.

I've read at the consulate stage, they want more proof of an ongoing relationship - photos, emails, chat logs, phone records, engagement ring receipt (if applicable).

Has anyone sent you a link to the guides? If not, go to: http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1guide .. I found that extremely helpful in knowing what I needed! It's definitely helpful for peace of mind, anyway.. knowing you have the correct documents!

That being said, there is also what people refer to as "front loading", that is, piling high the evidence of your relationship with the initial petition, despite not REALLY being needed (again, you only need your letter of intent stating you are legally able & willing to marry... divorce decrees, if applicable.. as far as "proof" of your relationship goes). My fiance and I were in between keeping it basic and "extreme front loading". We included a few photos of us (labelled on the back, where, who, when), a couple of emails we had sent each other, and a couple months of phone records. Nothing over the top, but enough to show we have a real relationship. It just helped to give us peace of mind.

I hope my answer wasn't too contradictory! I think the bottom line is, as long as you fill the minimum requirements for the petition, as the guides will show, you are fine, and you have done what USCIS needs. Anything other than that is really peace of mind for you and your fiance!

Good luck!

I hope this helps!
