evidence of relationship question

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was planning to transfer 4000$ money into the bank account of my fiancee. will the transfer of money in the bank account statement of my fiancee count as evidence of relationship? I then plan to attach the bank statement as proof of relationship to solidify my case further.

From a K1 perspective, I don't think financial proof is needed to show a relationship. You only need to satisfy the physical meeting requirement within the past couple of years to prove the relationship at this stage. Commingling assets are best left for the AOS stage after marriage. At the K1 stage you are best showing dated photos, boarding passes, passport stamps, hotel receipts, travel itineraries, and relationship statements from the two of you.

Good Luck!

hi

no need for money, unless you can show that you have been sending your fiancé money during the whole relationship

proof of having met plus proof of on going relationship during the whole process of dating,

such as boarding pass, pictures, chats, phone calls, etc

It's not going to be a negative, but if you are doing it ONLY to show for the interview (and not because the fiance actually needs the money for something), you would be better off using those $4000 to visit again, and spend time together- "face time"- time physically spent together- counts for a lot more than money resting in an account.

All that proves is you gave some woman money. It could also be seen as negative as a money scam. As advised, save the money and go visit her, as visits are worth a lot more in value where relationship evidence is concerned.

Agreed! Because of the high fraud rate in the Philippines, and the number of financial scams across the globe, sending your fiancé $4,000 could very well work against you. Too many times I have heard stories of petitioners including money transfer receipts in their I-129F packages, only to find out later that it counted against them. Remember, the basis for your relationship is love, commitment and time spent together. That is what the embassy wants to see.

thank you all for your replies. I think I did not clarify my question well enough but I see why it could be considered negative. I got my work place to transfer me for 6 months to the city my fiancee is in. And I didn't want to go through the hassle of opening a bank account in another country for tax reasons. That was the motive behind getting the money transferred to her account. But I see the point you guys are trying to make. Just thought I will clarify because of the comment posted above about a relationship being more about love and commitment. That statement hurt !

Maybe you can make a deposit to her bank account when you are already there with her.

vtomar,

Sorry that you were hurt - but your explanation above really does help clarify matters!

If you do give her money, and you will both be using it, and you want to put a receipt in the package you submit, then use the language you typed above to explain the transfer. Having a logical explanation of why you did what you did will help tremendously!

Good luck to you both!

Nope, just evidence of money transfer. It can be looked badly upon.

I then plan to attach the bank statement as proof of relationship to solidify my case further.

Could actually make your case muddier.
