Evidence of Ongoing Relationship

19 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We have over 2 years of call logs and chat messages across Facetime, Facebook, Skype, and WhatsApp. All together it would be 1000+ pages to be printed.

What should we include to condense this but also supply sufficient evidence?

Also we had begun planning our wedding and had Save the dates printed for april however we decided to scrap those plans and wait til my fiance comes over to continue planning. Should we include a Save the Date even though we no longer plan to marry on the date printed but possibly earlier in the year?

What about pictures (will be extra good if it's with family!) and passport stamps/boarding pass from visits?

He hasn't met my family yet bc it's so diffcult to get a visa to come to the US.

I will also be sending copies of my passport stamps and travel itinerary

Looks like you have some good evidence. If you have an engagement ring, you can include the receipt for that. Good luck with the interview!

I have a ring but I don't think we have the receipt anymore.

When it comes to the messages....I don't want to print all of them.

What is best?

Should I just include the most recent only like the ones from the last 6 months or should we print a few pages from each month from the last 2 years?

Yes! It is best for your evidence to cover the entire (or as much as possible of) time span of your relationship to prove an on-going relationship

And also take part where you get to know each other, lovey stuff (not sex stuff), talk about normal day things, family, wedding, the move and so on

As others have said, you can omit most of the love-dovey stuff. Tons of "I love you sweetie pie" and "xoxoxoxoxoxo" aren't what they're looking for; they want to see you have conversations like responsible adults in a loving relationship do. So things like talking about your families, plans for the future, how your day went at your job, the move, planning your wedding, health-related items, etc. etc.

But yes, you DO have a hard embassy, so start from the beginning and grab several pages from each month that cover a wide variety of topics.

Alright from the beginning it is.

But is it ok to submit excerpts from each month because in all its over 1000 pages?

If it was me I would print it all out. I mean if it sets you back 50 to 100 bucks what is that compared to possibly sending up red flags? IMHO

I have a ring but I don't think we have the receipt anymore.

When it comes to the messages....I don't want to print all of them.

What is best?

Should I just include the most recent only like the ones from the last 6 months or should we print a few pages from each month from the last 2 years?

if you're doing k1, you better not talk about any ring during the interview. They will send you back to go do cr1. 3 of my friends were sent back to go do the proper petition. They consider engagement, knocking and both family meeting as marriage. Maybe you might meet a good consular but if I were you,I wouldn't.

Aw really? We didn't have a traditional engagement or anything. He just proposed to me at dinner when I last visited.
