Sending Evidence

Hello Everyone.

I've begun collating all of the information we have for me and my fiancé to try and get the ball rolling. Thanks to some tools I've been able to download our entire skype call history, our entire skype chat history etc but I'm having a little trouble deciding how we should send this?

I need to edit out of a couple of things that I don't want in the chat history, nothing overly bad, but it's things I'd rather keep between me and her, certain conversations etc. But how do we submit this?

Originally I had thought about printing everything in triplicate, but our skype conversations amount to well over a thousand pages.... At this rate I'm going to be sending the immigration service a pallet of evidence if I do! Can we not just send it on a CD?

Also, is there a minimum length of a relationships that's preferable? I mean, we've known each other a while but I guess I'm worried someone at the IS will look at how long we've known each other and say 'No, this is fake'

Thanks!

There is no reason to send all those pages. Just choose a select few conversations that covers the time frame of your relationship.

The most important evidence for the I-129F petition is proof of meeting in person within the last 2 years, and chat logs do not prove this. Most important is passport stamps and boarding passes showing your travels to visit each other.

:thumbs:

Include a few that span the course of your relationship. Send some pictures of you both that also span the whole relationship and perhaps some with some family in them. (we also wrote a brief description of the picture)

If you have to edit, you can use a marker to "censor" the statements you want kept private...but it if were me, I'd probably avoid including these to keep things simple.

Copies of passport stamps/itineraries or anything with both your names on it. (We had a council tax bill) Do you have a receipt for an engagement ring or anything you could include?

As the previous poster said...you only need to provide proof of meeting within the last 2 years.

I don't think length of relationship matters a great deal. The UK is not a high fraud country. How long have you known each other?

Goodluck!

Fantastic, We should have no problem doing that

Brilliant, about a year or so, but well, when you know you know (we've not picked an engagement ring yet as she has thin fingers and we want to do it together, this annoys me since I wanted to be all gentlemanly and surprise her... DOH)

What program did you use to get your former Skype messages? Skype program won't allow me to view past the last 3 months.

There's a couple out there, but are you on Mac or PC? I've uploaded the Mac OS file which works perfectly for me, let us get huge call history information, right the way back to December last year when it all REALLY started accelerating. It's attached as a zip file, I found it on a skype forum, I didn't make it, if I find the original poster, I'll credit them oh and, sorry if posting files is against the rules, but to anyone that see's it, do the usual virus scan etc before you run!

Edit : Found the original poster over at this post on the Skype forum and the posters name is Jas000 - That's for your call history,

DniandShaun - The fiancé has just pointed out I may have sent you in the wrong direction, you wanted chat history... if you go to the top of your chat window, you should be able to select all

and then (it might be different on windows) you can click View Chat History which will give you a full HTML formatted page

screenshot20110615at230.png

She's also said there's a setting in there to set the skype history forever -

Click Skype - Preferences - Chats - and change the dropdown for 'keep skype history forever'

If you've reinstalled your computer, the file that has this is lost, same for call history, it'll go back to when you reinstalled Skype (I found out because the lady didn't reinstall her computer, and I did)

Aww cute!... :blush:

Hey also, boarding passes are good to prove you (or she) actually travelled, together with passport stamps, hotel receipts showing both names preferably or other tickets/receipts with names on. As secondary evidence, photos of you together. You only need evidence of having met in the past 2years at this initial stage. For the interview later on you will need evidence of ongoing relationship so you can then use record of communications, chat logs etc - but just examples of them every so often.

All the best for your journey.

Will do, thanks again, We're holding off on the application until we have all of the information, and she's got her job status settled!

Good idea... yep it seems a bit tricky initially - and people will tell you to follow the guides etc and they are right.. just takes getting your head around the jargon etc and you'll be fine. If you keep a check on the posts and have any questions check in the search (top right of this screen) for similar threads it doesn't take long to be familiar with the process. Good luck with it all.
