Ideas? Need to show Fiancee was in USA

Background: My Fiancee, Mila, was indeed in USA when she met me. Now she's back in Russia and we are in process w K-1. Recently, she needed to get new passport and her old passport, containing the stamps and such, was not returned to her. Since I am a little concerned about how it is we can show that she was indeeed in the USA to meet me BEFORE the K-1 date I am curious as to how to obtain perhaps verification from USCIS to verify her arrivals in USA. Obviously, if we had her former passport we could show the stamps but I don't think we will be able to get the former passport back from Russian authorities. The objective is to prove to US authorities her two (2) passsages through customs and immigration at JFK. Thank you for your ideas. Mike

Travel verification does not come from USCIS. It comes from the CBP, if she wants her entry records she likely needs to file a FOIA request for them which costs a lot and takes a long time.

What visa was she on? if the visa is still valid she should get the old passport with the valid visa in it. Are you sure you don't get it back or are you just guessing?

Either way, a good thing is receipts/bank statements. How did she pay for stuff while in US?

Did she save a boarding pass? What about the email with the flight confirmation?

For my I-129F, all I printed was the orbitz confirmations of our trips... (saved in "my account" under "past trips" - if you or her signed up for any flight-booking site like this, there might be something saved)

Her former tourist visa was in former passport, the former visa had been canceled at JFK because of questions. I do have other materials to show her presence in USA,

Does this mean that she was turned away at JFK? "canceled at JFK because of questions" What questions?

If she has visited you twice you can use things like her actual boarding pass, receipts, pictures of you two together, affidavits from persons who witnessed you together in the US, documents of any places you went together, etc. Do you live in New York or did you travel together to another location? If yes, then showing you were on the same flight is another way.

Good luck!

Yes, she was questioned at JFK and she elected to withdraw and "cancel" her Visa for entry. There were no illegal violations and she is free to apply for K-1 along with me, the petitioner. We are past that. Now just getting ready for interview or possible RFE. Was hoping to find a way to get info. from the government to verify here dates of entry into USA. Thank you Mike
