meeting requirement

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

thanks for everyone's responses to my last topic. i know we have to meet in person. i was just hoping we could get the process started before officially doing it.

my question now, regarding the face-to-face meeting requirement, is whether we have to meet face-to-face once or twice within the last two years?

if we meet up in october, can i submit the I-129F upon my return to the states? i've found some conflicting information online that says once in the last two years and others that say twice.

i appreciate your help!

Once is all you need. You can send off your petition package as soon as you get back from meeting in person. Take the printed out G-325A and letter of intent to get his signature while there, as those need an original signature, not just a copy. Take pictures together on different days, wearing different clothes, in front of landmark places and with his friends and family as well. Also, if possible, get receipts with both your names on it, like for staying at a hotel together. Save your ATM receipts from there, and any other receipts where you purchased something there, or attended an event of any kind. They can be used as evidence of your meeting along with copies of your boarding passes and passport stamps when sending in the petition.

Once is enough to start. Meetings are strong bonafide evidence, so meeting 2-3 times more during the process, and bringing that evidence to interview, is a good idea.

I forgot to say:

You have to meet once to launch the process, but still you have to try meet as much as you can, cause its really strange to marry sombody without knowing the Max of this person in reality..(contact online are sometimes not good for in the eye of the embassy).

The embassy will question everything in this relationship. You have to make sure that is a bonafide relationship.

Cheers

It's not "the" letter signed by both. It is one letter from each, so two signed letters.
