I 129F Questions (filling out addresses and evidence)

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone, 

 

I apologize if my questions are repetitive - I tried to find answers to my questions in other threads before asking for help. I am halfway through filling out the I 129F and would like some advice.

 

My fiance is from Benin and they do not have formal addresses like we have in the states. I included the neighborhood name with the province and country - will that be sufficient? 

 

For evidence - I took around 60 screen shots of our WhatsApp messages (since 2015) - what is a good number to submit? Our conversations are in French and I can translate them myself but is there "a right way" to submit the translations? I included them to the right of the screenshot. Also, Is it okay to put multiple photos of us on the same word document page or should I put each photo on its own page? 

 

I appreciate any help - thank you!

About the WhatsApp question, its not the quantity that maters, its the quality. I think that 60 is more than enough ( I submitted less). My conversations were in Ukrainian and I didn't translate them at all. As far as I know, the evidence is looked at when your case reached the embassy. Someone there must know french. That's why I didn't translate my conversations because they will be looked at by an officer in the Ukrainian embassy, and the offers there obviously know Ukrainian ! You can put as many photos on one word document as you want. But I would suggest to put them in a way where everything can be easily seen. I made screenshots from my iPhone,  made the word page horizontal, and put three pictures with captions on the bottom. There were some pictures that took up a page, but mostly I either had two or three pictures per page. 

 

Make sure you submit evidence that you two have met 2 years prior to submitting I-129, include two signed and dated letters of intent to marry, 2 passport photos ( with names on back), and check . *These are crucial* !
