i'm so depressed. i checked the uscis.gov site and our case was updated to REQUEST FOR EVIDENCE (status). what does it mean? do we have to provide more specific evidence like postpaid telephone bills, chat logs? we didn't provide postpaid telephone bills since we only use prepaid cards to communicate and also through skype calls.

is there a possibility that our petition might be denied if we don't provide this evidences specially telephone bills? we can provide chat logs and email but we don't have post paid telephone bills. hope someone could give us advice.

so depressing, im crying right now. if they only knew, we'll be celebrating our 9th anniversary as boyfriend-girlfriend(5 years long distance relationship)this month.

thanks in advice....

usually it means there may be something missing from your file...look for the paper statement and that will tell you what they need. Normally the phone records etc are not sent to USCIS or even NVC but those are rather kept until interview date. You won't know until you get the letter in the mail to exactly what they need. But if it's beyond 3 weeks call them and tell them you saw it was updated for RFE but you haven't received a letter. Stay on top of it and watch for it :) good luck!

Don't think of it as affecting your petition....they just need to be sure they have all the documentation and its submitted correctly. Could be as simple as forgetting to sign the bottom page... hopefully its a very quick and easy fix...at least you know they are working on your petition! God bless you as well :)

It is probably something simple, not anything concerning proof of relationship as that is not needed at this stage.

My RFE was due to me writing two different names on the forms as to my ex wifes name, one i wrote it as her english name and one as her chinese name. The divorce decree only matched one of the names so I had to get an affidavit signed by my parents to show it was all the same person. It went though easily after that.

I'm hoping that's the case. But, it sounds like they need to send more evidence of their relationship, like chat logs, pictures, phone logs, letters, proof of having met/visit within 2 years, (ie passport stamps, itinerary, boarding pass. They also need to send letter of intent to show they are free to marry. But then again, we have to wait for a letter from USCIS.

SO

You said "proof of relationship is not needed at this stage", then you asked if proof of having met in the 2 years is sent with the petition? if the answer is NO, that said proof of relationship is still needed right?

Proof of having met in the last two years needed to be sent with the petition. That means boarding passes for travel, passport stamps showing when you were there, hotel receipt with both names, photos showing you together. In other words proof that you were in the same place together during the last two years. Later, at interview stage, you have to provide proof of ongoing relationship which is when you can give copies of chat logs, some copies of emails since you last were together etc. showing you have an ongoing relationship.

If you did send proof of having met within last 2 years, then it may be a missing signature or some question that has not been answered or something similar. You will not know until you receive the RFE. But at least they are looking at your file and it is making progress.

What you are asking is very confusing. You cannot answer "No" to evidence of having met in person within the last 2 years. That is THE requirement for a K-1 petition. You provide passport stamps, boarding passes, receipts showing you both in the same place, etc. The phone and chat logs do not prove this, and they are used at the interview stage to show proof of an ongoing relationship.
