1st or 3rd Person for CRI

Recommended Posts

Maybe it's a bit stupid, but putting together the proof of relationship for our CR1 and wondering if it's better to write the captions in first or 3rd person.

 

Thanks!

I assume you mean for photos?  No need to get cutesy.  Stick to names and dates only.

We wrote every thing in 1st person. Later. When we were in administrative processing, the Senator, Congress representative and I wrote in the 3rd person. Many of my arguments were normative at that point. We just received standard responses. Then, I wrote a passionate letter in the first person that got their attention (though I again presented normative statements). This letter led to action on their end. I am not sure if 1st person voice had anything to do with it. However, the onus of proof is on those in the relationship. Thus, first-person is logical.

Must say, I do enjoy the grammatically correct direction this thread is taking!

Thanks! Really helpful! I was thinking that 3rd person might sound to formal and like we didn't write it but I also didn't want 1st person to sound too informal. Our cover letter is more formal but I think I'll leave the 1st person captions for our proof of relationship then!

OK, it’s evidence, not proof. Until USCIS and the consular officers develop the ability to read minds, nothing can be proven. 

 

And I hope you are not relying on photos as your main source of evidence? I’d pay more attention to gathering stronger evidence than worrying about the captions.

Yes we have more than just photos we're relying on, but I'd like to caption everything so it's explicit as to what it is -  it makes me feel better to caption everything
