everything looks good except the wire transfers. Could be interpreted that the beneficiary is in the relationship for monetary reasons only. It doesn't really show a relationship. everything else looks good, so you should be fine.

Ongoing relationship evidence is NOT requested with the I-129F, what USCIS wants is evidence of having met in person within the past two years. Passport stamps showing entering the Philippines, airfare ticket stubs, photos together, receipts from purchases while in the Phils.... those are needed.

Ongoing relationship evidence is later at the visa application in Manila.

not necessarily refused, but,...it is true that some embassies,as msbau764 stated, do not look kindly towards money transfers to the beneficiary.Is best to check country specific forums to see what others have done. In our case we were told not to submit money transfers so we did not, the only evidence we submitted (secondary) with the I-129-F petition with my passport stamps for 6 previous visits and about 12 photos with us and family. At the interview they accepted a photo album and asked questions about the photos, we brought text and phone records but these were not accepted.

Do you really think that the visa maybe refused if your fiance supports you with money? isn't it silly? I thought that it shoved that he is able to support his fiancee and he does it.

It depends on the beneficiary's country of origin and also the personal opinion of the Consular Officer reviewing the file.

I helped my husband pay off his (our :P) car so sent an amount of money each month when I got paid. I sent evidence of this, and it was clear in the Paypal receipts that it was to help pay his car. I'm also from the UK which is not seen as a high-fraud country.

However someone from Nigeria sending some amount of money per month to their American spouse/fiance could raise suspicion because it could look like they are paying the American to get them a one-way ticket to the US via marriage.

It will be the overall picture of the relationship that will make or break the visa issuance in the CO's eyes, so if everything else seems in order then the wire transfers would probably be a non-issue. That's why for high-fraud countries it's a good idea to send in proof of a real relationship on top of the proof of meeting in the last two years. The CO won't necessarily want to look at anything you bring with you to the interview and will go by the case file sent from USCIS/NVC alone.


ROC from CR-1 visa (Green Card expiration date was Nov 24th 2016)

 

Link to the evidence I submitted. Be sure to send evidence spanning your entire marriage (especially for K-1) or as far back as you can. Just one or two bank statements will not cut it. I primarily focused on the two years of living here since I came in on a CR-1. If you don't have the fundamentals (i.e. joint accounts/policies), you can explain why in the covering letter. E.g. "While we do not have joint utilities, we both contribute to them from our joint bank account".

 

September 26th 2016: I-751 package sent to CSC

March 15th 2018: ROC approved. 535 days (1 year, 5 months and 17 days)

March 29th 2018: Card being produced

April 4th 2018: Card mailed out

April 6th 2018: Card in hand. Has incorrect "resident since" date. Submitted service request on I-751 case (typographical error on permanent resident card) and an I-90 online.

April 2018 - August 7th 2018: Tons of service requests, emails and now senator involvement to get my corrected green card back because what the heck, USCIS. Also some time in May I sent a letter to Potomac telling them I want to withdraw my I-90 since CSC were handling it.

August 8th 2018: Card in production thanks to the direct involvement of Senator Sherrod Brown's team

August 13th 2018: Card mailed

August 15th 2018: Card in hand with correct date. :joy:

October 31st 2018: Potomac sends out a notice stating they have closed out my I-90 per my request. Yay for no duplicate card drama.
