Hi everyone,

 

We are finally at the point with having a scheduled K1 visa interview for my fiance for February 6th (Ecuador)!  I searched online for this question, but can't seem to find it.  With the list of documents needed to bring to her interview, do we need to update the financial ones with recent (pay stubs, etc..) and employer verification from the original we sent for the application in April/May of 2018?  I originally created two of everything (original with signatures) at the time of the visa app, so I can send them to my fiance to have as well.  I'm just not sure if we need to update some things.  What about affidavit letters and such, do those need updating?

 

Thanks!

Financials are not required with the petition.  What you sent is now stale

 

Ecuador should be telling you exactly what they want to see.  What other embassies want may not agree with what Ecuador wants

usually you try to get the most recent paystubs (4 or 6), NOA-2 copy for the interview, bank letter statement with balances, tax transcripts or W-2 with tax returns, letter of current employment with wages, I-134 and assets or such if needed. I would take an updated and signed letter of intent to marry

 

good luck

I would never beat you up.   I might pick on you a little.   Jk.

Well if I go back in time. There was a time before computers even existed .  There was a time when smart phones didn't exist.   There was a time when TV's were black and white
