Thank you everyone for the warm welcome.

I am a bit concerned.... our packet is only about 35-40 pages and I see some on here with 100's. I have gone over and over the list. I have only included a few items of on-going relationship as the London Embassy really doesnt require a lot. I do have 2 clear sleeves of pictures of us and him with my kids, boarding passes, luggage tags, intinery, parking receipts, his passport stamp, and a few other things to prove he was here. Maybe I am just a bit paranoid after seeing some with 100+ pages packets to send.

Hello... I am impatiently waiting for Ben's paperwork to arrive and then I'll be submitting the petition (hopefully by the end of the month). Ours isn't going to be very large either. Petitions submitted with a fiance/spouse in a high fraud country tend to be a bit thicker I think. (I could be wrong). Either way, good luck & best wishes. :)

I think what you have sounds great!! I didn't submit 100's of pages and got my NOA2 in 2 months. I'm pretty sure I sent around the same amount of pages and a lot of it was emails to each other as well. You will be fine. It sounds like it would be impossible for them to deny that you have met in person. Just remember to label everything and don't forgot to sign all the papers that require a signature. Good luck!!
