Couple of Questions about Attached Evidence

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey, y'all. Been a lurker, but this is my first time actually posting. Nearing completion of our K1 application (to bring my UK fiancee to Virginia) but have just a couple questions/concerns that I've seen so much mixed information on that I figured I'd just ASK directly. Feeling overwhelmed about piecing everything that we've collected together... I am a worrier so I realize I might be thinking too hard about it all. Thanks for bearing with me.

 

  1. I am having to answer YES to part 3, item 4a (page 9) because I have a first offense DUI conviction (2013). I have obtained certified court documents of the conviction and I have document evidence of having paid my fines, completed the class, gotten my license reinstated, etc (receipts and whatnot). I took care of everything and kept records of it all and was just going to include copies of everything. I am basically just wondering how much detail I need to go into as far as actually answering 4b? I was thinking that I'd just add a small blurb in the form about the conviction and successful completion of sentencing and to please see attached evidence. Do I need to include with the evidence a detailed description of what actually happened with the full sentencing and outcome written out, or do the documents speak for themselves?
  2. Is it safe to say that we just need to include proof of meeting in person in the last two years and I don't need to bother with a letter detailing how we met online/how our relationship began?
  3. What is ACTUALLY included on all the attached evidence sheets? Do I need to put my name and address and some type of heading on everything? Do I need to sign every single thing? 
  4. Final question, unrelated to attached evidence... do I include from g-325a  with the passport photos or not?!

 

Okay... THAT'S ALL! Thank you in advance so much for any input. Very much appreciate how helpful this forum is regardless.

Keep it simple fellow virginian :thumbs:. we met online on (name of site) (when) and then in-person (when/where). attach the terms of service for the site.

 

100% guarantee this will be asked by the consulate in the interview step later.

No g-325a is old k1 process. do include passport photos of each of you with names written on the back of them.

My partner and I originally met on Twitter. I need to print off and include the entire ToS for Twitter?

 

Thanks for your response, too! And HELLO, neighbor! (How funny!)

USICIS only cares that you meet the conditions to apply for the visa when processing your 129f. Those conditions being that you are both free to marry, intend to marry within 90 days of your fiance's arrival, and that you have met in person in the last 2 years. I just posted how your statement of meeting should look earlier so here it is again. "Me and my finance met in person on January, 1st 2019 in London. Evidence of this meeting are attached in the form of passport stamps,  credit card receipts, and pictures." No need to say anything about how you initially met at this stage because it has nothing to due with a 129f and they aren't going to assume it was an IMB unless you give them reason to. 

 

Court records are very important in your case and looks like you have it covered.

 

g-325a is no longer needed.

 

A cover letter with package contents listed is good. Sign the letter of intent and the actual 129f.

Its just trees... you'll go through a few forests before this is all done.  Some ppl get an RFE for the ToS if they omit it. Better safe than sorry! Good luck!

Include the court documents and a very simple and factual account of what happened for the arrest.  It will not impact your petition.  

 

A brief description of your first meeting in person.  No novel.  No love story.  Ours was a couple sentences..."We met at White Moon Bar on March 31, 2016".  We also included some pictures.  If you met online state that you online and include the ToS.

 

Simple is best.  We used about 15 pictures and passport stamps.  No receipts or affidavits.  We were approved.  Just prove you met within 2 years of filing.  That is all they need to see.

 

The G-325a has been discontinued a few years ago.  The newer I-129f has all that information included.

 

Our entire approved package was about 20 pages and 14 of them were the forms.  Keep it simple.  Prove you met and prove you are both legally free to marry.  That is all you need for the petition.  More proof comes later at the interview.

Everyone, including USCIS, knows what Twitter is. If they send out an RFE for that they must be bored or living under a rock lol. I met my now husband on POF, didn't even realize I would need proof that that's not a IMB site. We never got an RFE and when the officer at my interview asked how we met I said online. He just asked the website and that's it. Usually if it's a very common website / app (tinder, twitter, FB, POF etc) they're not going to send an RFE since that would slow down the process for no reason at all.
