Does this look acceptable??????

Also for our evidence of a bonafide couple we have skype logs, social network messages, emails, cards etc to show how we maintain our relayionship when apart. We have written a statement about our relationship including a chronological order of visits etc (and this will be proved by our evidence). Boarding passes and pictures together, in different places, with other members of family etc - We were thinking of putting all this evidence in chronological order from when we first met to make it easier for it to relate to the statement! Does this sound ok?

We also have christmas cards etc for the both of us from family (we think this shows that other people see us as a couple! Along with affidavits from friends.

Should the cover letter state that the order of the photos and boarding passes are in a chronological order of the visits??????

Thankyou

Yes that looks fine (assuming the spacing is not like in your example haha). I don't think I would bother listing the chronological order of the pics on the cover letter. Many people write a sentence on the back of the pictures, stating when and where it took place. Mine was a simple list (I copy/pasted this from an example I found here on VJ):

Department of Homeland Security

U.S. Immigration & Naturalization Service

Please find enclosed my I-130 Petition for Alien Relative, on behalf of my wife (XXXXXX) In support of my petition please find enclosed:

Completed Form I-130:

Check enclosed for the amount of $420.00

Copy of naturalization certificate

Copy of the marriage certificate

Copy of birth certificate the petitioner

Copy of petitioner's divorce documents

One passport-type photos of me

one passport-type photos of my wife

G-325A completed and signed by me

G-325A completed and signed by my wife

Evidence of a Bona Fide Marriage (photographs, chat records, phone records, boarding passes, hotel reservations, wedding invitation, and various receipts from my trips)

Copies of documents submitted are exact photocopies of unaltered documents and I understand that I may be required to submit original documents to an Immigration or Consular officer at a later date.

I appreciate your review of this petition. I understand that when this petition is approved, you will contact the beneficiary of the petition, my wife. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of further assistance; my local address is above and my telephone number is XXX

Thankyou for the reply,,,,,, yes all the contents are on seperate lines but when it posted it just came out this way for some reason!

I was worried that if I listed the evidence in chronological order on the cover letter the cover letter would be too long. I have decided to state on the cover letter that the evidence is filed in chronological order so it is in some kind of order!
