Translate love letters?

For my supporting evidence, I have a ton of emails, instant messages, and love letters. Do I really have to get them all translated? Or is just having them evidence enough of our relationship? They're pretty intimate and it'd be a huge pain in the rear to get them translated. If anyone has any suggestions or experience with this kind of thing, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

I know it's a major pain, but I would try to translate as many as possible since you never know what can happen. The problem with certain countries (not sure if Honduras qualifies, but speaking from my experience with Peru, I would say it probably does) is that you don't know what the consular officer is going to be like. You don't want to give them any excuse to turn you down (that's what happened to us and we're stuck with the much longer process for a marriage visa). The nice thing is that you don't have to send them out - unless the idea of translating them yourself makes you want to rip your hair out. I hope that's useful.

You have no time-line recorded so I'm going to assume that you're just in the I-129F application stage, correct?

You do not need to submit any of this "stuff" for the I-129Fpetition. Save all this stuff for the interview. Having said that however, typically only documents such as birth certificates and divorce documents need to be translated.

You do not need to translate the types of relationship evidence that you described, typically.....

For the petition you need to submit solid evidence that you and your fiancee have met within the past two years; that you and she are eligible to marry (submit divorce decrees, death certificates, etc.) and that the petitioner is a U.S. Citizen.

Why Ryan,

Who are you to say that? I happen to like and agree with does pictures. No one ask you for advice or commentary on her opinion or choice politically. Stay with the topic, if want to be a political commentator buy some air time on a radio station or go to a political blog. :yes:
