I-129F/K1 Request For Evidence: What's your experience?

18 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

From VANCOUVER: (I-129F / K1-Visa applicant)

Checked my case status on the USCIS site today, the update read, "On April 11, 2012, we mailed "a notice requesting additional evidence or information in this case..." That notice goes to Hawaii, my fiances address. He's working on a ship, out in the Gulf of Mexico until April 25th. (He's got family there that can scan the notice, and mail it to Canada if need be, so no problem there).

So, what's your experience been? Hoping to hear from people that have recently been through this.

Happy Journeys!

Could be any number of things. When he gets the letter, it will specify what you need. I had one and it was for more evidence of the "LAST" meeting we had. Weird. Anyway, we didnt have anymore than what we had ALREADY sent, so we re-sent what we gave orgianlly and extra reciepts of credit card transactions of the visit. They also asked us to send letter of how we met. So USC wrote a 1 page letter of our journey and had it notorized. (was only 5$ to have it done)

We got our NOA2 10 days after mailing RFE in.

Great tip getting the 'How We Met Letter' notarized. Like you said, wait and see.

Cheers, and congrats on your upcoming wedding blush.gif

Yeah, I'm seeing a trend that it's no biggie thank goodness. I'm SO curious to see what they need.

OUch on the 3 month delay..

I did review what we sent, but we'll just have to wait for the notice, to see what they want.

Can't really do much until then.

Thank you for your input smile.gif

We got our NOA2 10 days after mailing RFE in.

Got the notice/letter via scan/email. Sounds similar to the one you got.

* We both have to provide 'Intent to Marry' letters (which we already submitted with the I-129F package).

*..."Have Met in Person" have met in person and/ or have been in each others physical presence at any time during the two years (2009-2011) immediately preceding the filing of the petition. (I did submit one time stamped photo with the I-129F. Oh well, do it again).

Under Have Met in Person: Circumstances of meeting:.... to establish the relationship & Last Personal Meeting (2009-2011)

Circumstances of meeting: We will both do letters. As advised above, have them notarized.

Last Personal Meeting (2009-2011)... whatever evidence we have, we'll provide. Thank goodness my fiance, (the petitioner) has credit card receipts with his name & year/mm/dd. Unfortunately, we don't have airline stubs during the time period they're asking. Everything is done on the internet these days, we print, travel, and toss. Oops. My favorite receipt is the one for my ring which he purchased in Vancouver/Canada 2010. Other favorites items to submit are time stamped photos. One from Disneyland, California 2009, and another from the 2010 Winter Olympics CAN vs USA game.

My fiance will be here for a visit in less than a week. Haven't seen him since Valentine's Day!

Life happens. It tears you apart, but brings you closer together.

Hey girlie. Here's what we did for the following things you've been asked for:

Form I-129 F – Continuation Page

Part B. Question 18 – Describe the circumstances under which you met.

Holly and I first met while playing an online video game. Originally we were just friends who occasionally played together. However, over time we spent more time with one another. In late 2008 we became close friends. In January of 2009 I made a joke that I should come up to Vancouver and we could spend a weekend together, eventually this joke turned into an actual plan. My first trip to meet Holly began in June of 2009 after my classes had ended for the semester. I drove my car up the west coast. It took three days of driving to reach the border and soon I made it to her apartment. From the moment we first met one another in person I knew this girl was special. I had originally planned to stay there for only two weeks, but two weeks quickly turned into five. We went camping in Tofino, visited her cousin in Victoria, and I met her father, brother, and grandmother in Salmon Arm. Since that first trip we have regularly visited one another every three to four months. Holly agreed to marry me when I proposed to her in July 2010.

*It just needs to be a very simple statement. Always best to go with the 5 W's (who, what, when, where, why!). Our "how we met" statement is probably more elaborate than even they want it to be!

Intent to marry letter:

*We just copied the example on Visajourney's website. Not sure where I found it but probably somewhere in the guide.

Have met in person:

*Sounds like they want primary evidence ie: boarding passes, passport stamps, receipts etc. I believe you can get a record of your trips if your passport hasn't been stamped but I can't remember how. You should try to look back into your visa credit card statements or something and see if you can find any charges at that time.

I hope this helps and good luck!

Hi ya! Yeah, guess our statement could have been longer how we met. 'While on vacation in Hawaii'. But that's how we met!

We did do letters of intent, and intend to send the same as they've requested it. Along with 'primary evidence', (from Nov-'09-Nov-'11).

So far I have 9 pages of primary evidence. My honey will be here for a visit in a few days. We'll see what he can add to that.

Cheer!

Hope you are well smile.gif

yeah just make sure to put the date in of when you met.

We met in Hawaii in January of 2010 - for example. Just make sure you include a date within the last 2 years (since you met originally in 08). Ie.

"we met in hawaii in january of 2008. We have since started a long distance relationship where we visited back and forth. Our most recent trip was when XXXX visited me in Vancouver in February 2010"

- I saw you mention something about the olympics so I'm just assuming :P

Hope it works out for you!

If you ourchased airline tickets on-line through some place like priceline that you have an account with, you should be able to go back and at least get the itinerary/reciept that you purchased those tickets. I know sometimes when I flew from Canada, US customs did stamp my passport so you could inculde copies of those passport pages if you have the stamp.

I was just wondering about on-line airline tickets, which I've been doing for years... I've got some of those. I'll see my fiance in a few days, and how many stamps he has. Actually, we both have Nexus cards, I'm sure that'll be helpful somehow.

Thanks for the advice, much appreciated.

Cheers!

They do prefer the boarding passes, since you can technically purchase a ticket and then not travel, but if you can match the reciept up with the passport stamp then that will solidify the evidence a bit.

Good luck
