K1 Evidence of Relationship for Interview

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I will be interviewing in Montreal and have not yet received my Packet 3, but I'm in the process of collecting documents and have been using the online P3 for Montreal as a guide. I was wondering if anyone has some recent examples/experiences for the "Evidence of relationship between petitioner and beneficiary". I read many of the Montreal Consulate reviews and a few people mentioned that they were never asked for the evidence, but I don't know how much of that may have been because of front-loaded petitions. For the I-129F, we just sent evidence of the 3 trips we had together to show we had met up within the past 2 years, including pictures, so should I bring extra copies of those same photos or would that be redundant? I remember reading several months ago about the interviewer mainly wanting to see evidence from the time of I-129F submission, but I don't know if that still means they want to essentially see a timeline from the early stages to present, just with an emphasis on the latter portion of that timeframe.

My interview in Montreal was in September of 2016.  At that time, I was not asked for any documents to prove the relationship.  The petition was also not front-loaded - just one receipt and one picture corresponding with that receipt, though the cover letter did detail dates of visiting (which were an abundance because border crossing aside, we lived 30 minutes away from each other).  


The only items I was asked for that were NOT in the packets was a color copy of my passport biometric page and the receipt from payment of the ds160.  Everything else you need is listed.  The interviewer didn’t probe too much either.  Just asked how we met, what he did for work, what I did for work.  Other than that he made small chat while furiously typing.

Evidence of a relationship is easy to give and rarely asked for.  Show some regular communication and visits.

Bring what you previously submitted and create something similar for any visits after submission of I-129f. They likely have or at least have seen your entire petitioner packet, but still doesn't hurt to bring that too. And they probably won't ask for any of it. 🙂

My husband and I kept receipts for gifts sent to one another under the advice of NAS Sigonella's Legal team while overseas. We haven't gotten to the point of being asked for proof yet though. That's so good that you got an interview! I'm beginning to lose hope for me-- I've been checking the website every day for months but it always says there's no availability.
