I-129F Supplement: Part B, Question 18: Has your Fiancé met and seen you

Fred

Address line 1

City, State zip

Dear Sir or Madam:

I meet my fiancée (X) on July 18, 2011 in City, China while I was teaching an English Language Summer camp at Z University (Z). We spent time together every day during my first trip to China until I left on August 9, 2011 (See attached I-129F Supplement - Part B, Question 18, Proof #1).

When I returned to the U.S. we continued to build our relationship using renren.com which we still use, note that my Chinese name is (L), which is an unofficial, made up name for the benefit of the Chinese. (See attached I-129F Supplement - Part B, Question 18, Proof #2) We also use email (See attached I-129F Supplement - Part B, Question 18, Proof #3 - Proof #9).

As our relationship grew we wanted to be together and I arranged to study Mandarin Chinese at Z to learn more about her culture and language. I arrived in China for the second time on February 16, 2012. (See attached I-129F Supplement - Part B, Question 18, Proof #10). I lived in Z Student Dorm while enrolled as a Chinese Language student (See attached I-129F Supplement - Part B, Question 18, Proof #11). While living in City I spent time every day with my fiancée (I-129F Supplement - Part B, Question 18, Proof #12 & #13) and we also took various trips when School was on Holiday. (I-129F Supplement - Part B, Question 18, Proof #14 & #15)

After school was finished and summer break started we took a three week trip around the northern half of China because my fiancée wanted to show me more of her country. (See attached I-129F Supplement - Part B, Question 18, Proof #16 - 24). We talked about our future often and during this trip I proposed marriage and she accepted. We agreed we would start our life as husband and wife in the U.S. and have been planning our wedding and our future together ever since.

We continue to see each other every day, though for now using Skype (Internet Video Conferencing) and stay connected through email, SMS text messages and phone calls. (See attached I-129F Supplement - Part B, Question 18, Proof #25). I will next see my fiancée in January (See attached I-129F Supplement - Part B, Question 18, #26) when I will fly to City and spend 10 days together with her.

When I returned to the United States, I begin this process to petition the United States for permission to bring the women I intend to marry and spend the rest of my life with to America.

Please forward this letter and all attached documents to the US Consulate in Guangzhou, China.

Yours truly,

Fred

Very impressive, but will USCIS read it all?

If I were you I would make it more concise (the evidence part). I don't think all the screen shots are necessary. Just 3-4 photos of you together and copies of flight tickets to and from China. If there is too much evidence, it might easily get lost/ the workers at USCIS might skip your petition for an easier looking one.

Just my opinion... :unsure:

Thankfully I don't think that you can be denied for over thinking a process. Your letter is overly verbose but should be okay.

"I met my Fiance in July 21, 2011 on the international space station where she was also staying.'

What I was trying to do was address:

A. Proof of having met in person in the past two years

B. Proof of ongoing relationship

At the same time I was answering the part B, question 18. Is this not the best way to so do?

You're very detailed and meticulate. Certainly not a bad thing. When writing the statement, just keep it as short as possible yet giving details of how and when you met. Your details are excellent, but treat this as a separate item from anything else. The evidence of your meeting should or will correspond to the dates and places you mention in the statement. A cover letter with table of contents at the front of the petition is enough to tie things together. If you keep the evidence organized into its on section of the package, it will probably make it easier to adjudicate. If you are going to provide ongoing relationship evidence along with evidence of meeting, make two sections to separate which is which as well.

Yes, you got it. After reading many posts I thought it best to front load mine, meaning give as much details ahead of time so that when it gets to China, maybe it will be easier to process. Who knows, but yes. You have it right from what I have read.
