our NOA2 has been received (YAAAAAYYY)

anyway she needs to send me more stuff but theres a few details i need to ask about

1, we need proof of continuing relationship. from the time we filed the i-129f till present. we have some photos we omitted from the i-129f taken two months before the filing (werent ready in time) can we use them even though they were slightly before the tim we filed for the petition.

2. they ask for copies of things sent for the RFE. but all they did was ask the question on the form itself. my fiancee just ticked signed and sent away that minute. does this matter

3. i know i need a copie of the "entire i-129f" but is there anything from that we need originals of?

anyone know if this is an issue

1. You can just use documentation of skype calls, phone calls, letters, emails, etc as proof. Take a screen shot of you two video chatting. The pictures aren't really proof of ongoing relationship if it's before you filed...

2. Did you photo copy the RFE sent to your fiance? That's what they're asking for.

3. The only thing I remember bringing the original for was the NOA1 and NOA2, passport, birth certificate.

1. I mean you can include those if you'd like. There's really no harm to put in more than asked. I don't believe my immigration counselor really looked through the evidence because our case was pretty straight forward. I did pack in a lot of letters and emails and cards that I got between filing and interview though - so at least make sure you have that.

2. Hm don't know how to answer this q then. They should have the RFE info in the packet that they forwarded to her local consulate. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

3. Yeah. That's what I remember having originals of. It's been a few months so my memory is a little faint. But just follow the checklist they send you, bring originals and copies of everything if you can, and you'll be fine. I remember I didn't bring a copy of my passport and the lady was really nice and said no worries I'll photocopy it for you. But just follow the checklist and you'll be good.

1. You are interviewing in London. They want ZERO photos or anything else of relationship between filing petition and interview. I assume you put in a few photos with the petition. Whatever is in the petition is all you need. Nothing more for London.

2. They do not want any petition RFE things in London. Mark that worry off your list.

3. You do NOT need a copy of the entire petition. They get the original.

Also they do not want a copy of the NOA2 approval. Keep that safely in the US because photocopies go in with your AOS. You don't want it lost or misplaced when you move.

All you need from your American fiancé is the I-134 Affidavit of Support and one proof of her income. They (London) especially like employer letters as the proof of choice. She can choose one more proof if you want to be extra cautious, but you certainly don't need to prove income five different ways.

Everything else that goes to the interview is your documents, not hers. Here is London's list.
