Ongoing relationship proof

23 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

i am still waiting for the NOA2 but i figured i might as well start to gather all proof of ongoing relationship. I hav not and will not be able to see my fiance until the visa is approved and will not be able to provide evidence of visits due to this.

i am gathering:

skype logs

screenshots of us on skype (and also of him and our daughter talking on skype)

screenshots of me talking to his other daughter on skype

phone bills starting in 2011 until interview date

facebook messages and will take screenshots of each of our FB pages showing our engaged status

our daughters birth certificate

also will give everything from our i129f petition

-plane tickets/boarding passes from a trip we took in 2010

-my ez-pass statements showing me driving to his home and back to canada again

-photos of us together

my real question is... since i wont actually be seeing him until i POE and wont have any new photos of us... what are other things i can provide as proof on ongoing relationship?

i feel like i only have the skype logs to go on. since we talk on skype every day all day. will this be enough. i want to cover as many bases as possible.

Was never asked for any proof of ongoing relation at the interview - most people who go to Montreal are not asked for any proof. They just ask for the requested forms and papers, ask you some questions and then your done.

No need to stress over it, just bring what you have - they likely wont even ask to see anything.

I must agree, I think with all the items that you have you have no reason for worry. I just scheduled my interview and thinking that I have two-thirds of what you present.

Good luck!

Was a Valentine's card sent? Christmas card? Love letter? It is cheap, always enjoyed by the recipient, and, most important, TANGIBLE.

I don't know if ours helped my fiance in his interview, but I am sure that the 10 or so he had stuffed together in his folder were apparent (in the envelopes with the post dates). I believe the first 7 plastic pocket evidence pages were looked at in the embassy for us--receipts/boarding passes/ etc matched with a photo of us in each of those locations to further prove we were there together.

I haven't read/heard of any problems with Canada. Good luck!

This is something I worry about too - my fiancé and I talk almost exclusively through AOL IM, with a few skype calls here and there. Hoping that jcpenney christmas reciepts and amazon birthday gift receipts will help, and I'm visiting him next week (also did in december after it was filed). Good luck and I hope you get your second NOA soon!

Thanks so much everyone! And I'm so jealous that you can see your fiancé while the k1 is being processed. I have been denied at the border 2times and don't feel like going through that again with a 2year old!!

I'm trying to cover all bases with our proof of ongoing relationship and hope I have more than enough even if they don't ask for it!!!

That's a worry for me this time around - mostly because I have to take a connecting flight through Vancouver so it would kind of suck to be stranded for an undetermined amount of time. Always wonder what happens when you're denied. I guess you don't get the money back if you bought a plane ticket?

If u don't mind me asking: What was the reason u were denied?

I can only imagine what it's like with a 2 year old ...

They denied me due to lack of ties to Canada, I had never been asked before and didn't have anything on me for ties to Canada. Also they were trying to say that I was working and living illegally in the us.

I have never been in the us longer than 2 or 3 months at a time, another problem in their eyes was that my daughter was born in the us...

So because of my daughter being an American citizen, they considered me to be an immigration risk... I explained to the CBP that I have been visiting on and off for almost 4 years and now there's a problem.???

The second time I tried to cross they asked me to provide all my

Roof of ties to Canada, I felt as though I had more than enough proof of ties to Canada, but they felt like still I was an immigration risk since they denied me the first time now I'm an even greater immigration risk....

I just don't want to do that again. The first time they held me and my daughter for 4 hours and refused to let me give her a snack.

Ugh sometimes I feel like the IO's make their decisions based on their mood... Luckily they have never asked me to provide any ties to my home country (I wouldn't even have any) but I'm in the same situation as u. Won't see my fiance until I have the visa :/

Yeah it just downright sucks! Luckily for me I live only 10 minutes from the us border so it wasn't a long drive home after they turned me around.

It's a bummer but CBP officers are doing their job. Witherwings don't worry about proof of relationship, you have plenty already. And as it has been mentioned, they rarely ask to see those.

That's a worry for me this time around - mostly because I have to take a connecting flight through Vancouver so it would kind of suck to be stranded for an undetermined amount of time. Always wonder what happens when you're denied. I guess you don't get the money back if you bought a plane ticket?

No you don't get your money back. If you are ready to put up a long fight with the airline company, you can maybe get a credit for the unused portion of your trip. It's doable but it takes time. I won my case a year ago and also got a credit for my travelling companion.

Oh I know I don't blame the CBP officer I told them I know they're just doing their job I get it.. It was just the way the officer handled us the first time was ridiculous.. Really you won't let my 2year old have a snack... But the worst part was when they checked my car they never buckled my daughters cars eat back up and I never noticed until the next day...

I get it you have to look everywhere but at least you could've mentioned to me that's never did it back up like maybe didn't know how to or whatever... But no not a word. Luckily I didn't have a long drive with her back home but that was really the scariest thing ever.

I would of made a formal complaint about this because that is a huge child safety issue.
