evidence of engagement for i-129f

Getting ready to send off the i-129f and thinking about evidence of engagement...

I don't have a newspaper announcement (we don't want to do this either, peruvians are so gossipy and nasty :( ), nor do we have ring receipts. I'm enclosing two emails discussing our wedding plans, but I think that I need more proof that we are actually engaged and planning to be married. Any advice?

Just your word is not going to cut it.. and a simple letter from you and her. You should get her friends and family members write a letter stating they know about your engagement and they met you and talked with you... This would be proof of a relationship and intent to marry.

you need photos of you and her together.... This is very important.. If you feel you can not do this.. i suggest you go there and marry and do the K-3 Visa

You need to prove that you both met in person within the last 2 years and that you have a relationship, also attach the letter of intent to marry. That should be enough, even if you don't have any evidence of the engagement itself. In some cultures it's not even common to give an engagement ring before the wedding, so it's not a requirement to have one, or try to prove that you have one. Not all people give announcements in newspapers too, it's the first time I hear about it actually :P

I disagree! :huh:

All you have to send with your 129F petition is proof of having met within the last two years + letter of intent to marry(which is a short statement found HERE ). You don't need to ask anyone else to write anything for you. At least not now.

You'll only have to prove you have a real relationship when your fiance goes to the consulate for the interview.

Right now, just focus on gathering enough proof of metting. :thumbs:

Good Luck!!

This is nonsense. No proof of engagement is required - just proof of meeting. If you are 'officially' engaged - good; if not - its still fine. My wife went throguh this (then she ws my fiance) she had no rings or proofs and none was asked for. Good Luck

I agree...all I sent was our letters of intent to marry. I had no proof of engagement...no ring, just pictures of us together at various times within the last two years. Maybe Scorpio needs his own message board?

Submitting evidence of an engagement is not a requirement. If one has it, all and good...if one doesn't then one simply can't.

B. Provide original statements from you and your fiancé(e) whom you plan to marry within 90 days of his or her admission, and copies of any evidence you wish to submit to establish your mutual intent;

Again, with photos.......if one doesn't have any and the evidence one does submit to prove having met within the required 2 years is STRONG, there is no reason it will not be accepted. Regardless of what is sent, if it proves the fact then that is what is required. Each case is different. One has to look at their own evidence as to whether that satisfies the requirement.

I agree with everyone else, the most important thing they need right now is proof of having met. So pictures and a letter of intent to marry from both of you will work plus any other things like boarding passes or passport stamps that show ya'll have visited each other, there does not have to be "proof of enagement". In my case we knew we wanted to get married but my fiance didnt officially propose till a month after I had sent in the paper work....(we has saving $$$ for the ring).

Exactly like others have said, the only requirement for the I-129f is proof of having met in the last two years. This can be proved with boarding passes, passport stamps, hotel receipts, etc. Those who say you must have proof of relationship at this point are WRONG. Some people send it in, it probably won't hurt, but since it isn't asked for it probably won't help either. So, if you don't have it, don't worry. All you need to do is prove you've met in the last two years and the relationship proof comes at the interview stage at the embassy.

Thanks for the replies, everyone. I do have a lot of proof that we have met in person, pictures, passport stamps, etc. I was just a little concerned that I needed proof of engagement. I will send in the letter of intent from both of us, obviously.
