I-129F question #18- Proof of meeting within 2 years

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of filing the I-129F. I first met my fiance four years ago. She is from Mexico and was in working in the US on a TN Visa. We are both accountants and she worked at a client’s office that my company did work for. We have dated for 4 years and got engaged a year ago. Her company was sold in January of 2012 and she returned to Mexico. However she has traveled to the US (to see me) a number of times since then on her travel visa. I have traveled to Mexico a number of times on my passport. I have a question about what proof I need to have in order to support line #18 on the I-129F form. The discription says to explain how the relationship was established and does not say anything about providing proof. I did not keep any type of receipts when we would go out to eat (even thought that would not say who was at the table eating!) Other than write a detailed description and attach it to the I-129F form what else should I try and provide? The rest of the form is straight forward but I want to make sure I cross all the Ts and dot all the Is. Thanks in advance for your help.

On a side note we will travel between Mexico and the US during the I-129F process. Will that cause a problem? Sorry if some of these questions have been answered in other posts but I am new to this forum.

Thanks again

John

Exactly. Pretty sure my response was one or two sentences.

I actually wrote a lot more than was needed and was approved no problem. If I had to do it again, I would just write in the little box a couple sentences. Make sure you include boarding passes and passport stamps because it is great proof of you being there at that specified time.

The description supports the Question. Describe how you met within the last two years. Your evidence, as suggested in the Guides, will support this one meeting.

The question does not ask about your relationship....just did you meet in person in the last two years.

And yes the size of the box is indicative of how long your answer should be. Two sentences max.
