My Fiancée and I use FaceTime - how do we show phone logs?

Recommended Posts

My husband and I didn't text/Facetime every day, so we had not much to send. We sent 7 pictures ( 3 or 4 with family / friends in it) and the airline tickets of all our trips together and our trips to see each other as proof and got approved (K1) without RFE. I wouldn't worry too much bout the phone logs.

Hi,

 

My fiancée and I communicate every day via text and FaceTime video. Because of this there are no phone logs that we can send as proof of our ongoing relationship. Anyone else that's relying on FaceTime or Skype, how are you showing your ongoing communication?

 

Thanks

 

Just use your texts and screenshot how much you FaceTime ( meaning how many hours). I screenshoted 2-3 pictures of call/FaceTime for each month!

 

Use pictures from when you two saw each other. Remember that it’s quality that matters, not quantity!

Depends on the model of iPhone or Mac. Some iPhones use home + power and others use volume up + power. If it's on a Mac instead, the key combinations can vary. ;)

 

 

 

Just screenshot the call log.

That said, I wouldn't worry too much about this unless you are going through a high fraud embassy/consulate.

proof of an ongoing relationship is for the interview part, for the initial petition they just want to know you guys met in the past 2 years to fulfill the requirements.

Thank you. I'm working with an immigration lawyer on prepping the K1...I used this site to get all my materials but they're saying I should send 20-30 photos and all these chat logs and Facetime logs (in addition to all the flight receipts, passport stamp photos and receipts of gifts we've mailed each other over the year.) I think they're just trying to be extra thorough but since we're hoping to get the initial process mailed in this week, I"ll make sure to keep photo logs of all FaceTime calls moving forward so she has them for the interview.

 

Thanks all!

My petition had 1 photo, no chat logs of any kind.  Its quality evidence not quantity

No problem, ultimately the choice is your to make.  It's just there's some threads on here regarding sending chats log in the initial petition mainly due to providing too much information, you don't want to give the CO too much information so they can analyze it and question you.  

 

As an after thought.  I suppose since you hired an immigration lawyer, I would just go with what they say so if something does goes wrong you can blame them for the problem so they can't say well we suggested this but you didn't want to do it.

All you have to do in this stage is prove that you met in the last 2 years, chat logs won't help with that.  Its just extra paperwork., What you can do now is just start e-mailing each other back and forth and then print them out along with the face time logs for the interview as evidence of an ongoing relationship.  

 

I've seen other site say you should send a decree of never being married certificate,  don't send it yet just send what is needed.
