Skype Screen Caps as Photo Evidence?

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband is a pain in the a** when camera's become involved. The moment he notices a camera aimed in his direction he runs for cover or at you lol. On rare occasions he'll allow you to photograph him but for the most part you have to have ninja skills. Now I fear it may come to bite us in the ####. We have photos together (50 ish) just he and I but as far as with other people (Stuart and my friends, Me with his family etc) we have around 20. This is over the 2 years we've been together.

We're at the whole 'establishing domicile' stage of the game since we're now just awaiting his interview date. As of September 3rd I've been in America getting our apartment sorted and relocating my business while he's back in the UK continuing to work and awaiting the interview. We Skype several times daily and often me and my family (Mom, Sister) will Skype with he and his (Mother, Brother, Father, Step Mom, Step Dad). On these occasions I've taken to screen capping Skype sessions...For example, Me and my mom VS Stuart and his Brother:

Would these be admissible?

A few snapshots together ought to be fine. Don't obsess over one aspect of documenting the relationship. The CO considers the totality of evidence presented.

They would help prooving that you 2 are together and have been having frequent contact with eachother. It would help show a ongoing relationship, if thats what your asking.

I'm obsessing over every aspect. I really need to try and calm down. Each day it's different. Usually directly related to whatever horror stories I've read here :wacko: . Thanks for the info!

I was thinking more along the lines of adding this to the photos section since that's looking slightly on the anemic side. But if you think it works proving an ongoing relationship overall I'll add it anywhere so long as it helps. Thanks!

I was able to get a good chunk of photos out of him but not nearly as many as a lot of these shutterbugs out there. He refuses to even LOOK at photos that he's been in. That's why I've taken to screen caps whenever more of either of our family become involved in the chats.

If the horror stories aren't an actual experience from the embassy in LONDON written by the person who interviewed (not second hand retelling version) then ignore them. It sounds like you have 70 more photos than people normally are asked for in London. Why do you need more?

Have you been living in the UK and need to show your intent to domicile in the US? DCF filer? Photos is not really the way to do that.

This is me too. I wonder if people like you and me are really just over thinking this stuff. ;)

That's what my lawyer said. She said we were over thinking and not to give them more than they ask for.

I lived in the UK for 3 years. I came back to the USA last month. So far I've got an apartment, registered my business with the IRS to this address, I'm waiting for the original marriage certificate to make it over from England so that I can renew my passport to my current address with my married name.

As far as intent to domicile I'll be able to show a lease and my letter confirming my business being registered to this address from the IRS.

Photos are considered secondary evidence and for the UK just a few photos of you both together and 2 or 3 wedding photos would suffice. The best evidence you can provide would be documents that show a co-mingle of funds. Bank accounts, insurance policies, leases past and present, etc.... Pictures for your case are not as necessary as they would be for somebody in my case because the consulate we have to go through has been labeled a high fraud post. Best wishes!

Thanks! We've got a joint bank account in the UK and I'm on the lease of the house his currently living in. I moved in there in Feb but left in August to get stuff done here. No insurance policies, I find that whole thing a little morbid however I know that will change once we have kids. I didn't know that about Morocco! The more I read here the more I learn about immigration experiences from different countries. Best of luck on your journey!
