Skype as proof of ongoing relationship

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancé and I primarily commuicate via Skype (alomost daily) and I take a screenshot almost every. It wasn’t until later I thought about making sure to put date on screen when taking theses shot. I don’t have extensive phone records or e-mail logs but I have dozens of these skype shots that clearly show Wila’s face and mine many with dates. Should this be sufficient as proof ongoing relationship along with plane ticket receipts and photos of are trips together and meetings with family? If so how many should I include?

Welcome to the forum.

How about passport stamps and airline boarding passes? Review the great information in the site's step-by-step K1 guide.

Good luck on your journey.

Pictures pictures pictures. I got a 221g because I didn't have enough photos even though we lived together in BKK for 2+ years. They want to see photos of you together. I had proof us living together, and that wasn't good enough. They want those photos. I had a 48 page passport full of exit and entry stamps. They didn't care.

Hi,

Before my petition was approved I got a RFE and they specificly asked for dated pictures. In my case, my fiancee and I have been together for alsmot three years and have seen each other multiple times, however, none of our pictures were dated, so I sent a copy of both of our passports, some receipts and airline ticket stubs and they approved my petition.

If you get an RFE it says that pictures are consider secondary evidence.

So bottom line is, Pictures are not THAT necessary.

Straight of the horses mouth so to speak. This email was sent to me by the Embassy. The IRS thing was already fixed. Take photos. Lots of them

Hearing about all these RFEs is making me nervous that I didn’t handle things in ways to generate enough proof.

I can print copies of several plane ticket from trips we took togehter spanning two 3 week holidays together, but have only of few my boarding passes due to water damage from a heavy Thai rain. And I don’t have staggering amount of photos of us together though some from each destination. I have skyped with Wila almost every night for months and months and after this last trip I know don’t want to be without her. It will be devastating if everything I have so far falls short.

Worst case scenario they give you a 221g or an RFE. They'll ask for more info. Give them what they want and you'll be fine.
