Just wanted to ask about interview experiences in regards to the COs going through your ongoing relationship packets. 
 

Do they actually go through it? In particular the London Embassy...

 

Thanks in advance :)

A majority of the time they do not 


YMMV

So what is the point of doing all this work to show proof if they aren’t going to acknowledge it??

Mainy just in case they need to see more.

It all depends on the CO's mood.

They did not go through any of what we brought (London). We brought things just in case (and we continue to do so through our journey). I guess having them is good in case they dont believe you are a legitimate couple. :)

I will do it regardless... but it’s just disheartening knowing you are putting all this work in, that they ask you to do, to not even give it any thought

True, but you can keep it all intact for when you will need it at your AOS interview, along with everything else you will have compiled.

Premarital evidence is not so compelling at AOS,  as the requirement is evidence of a bonafide marriage relationship

You're going to find that sort of thing in a lot of this process. It's not that other consulates might go over everything with a fine tooth comb... it's just not that way in London.. which is a great relief for many. Do what they ask, but be thankful when they don't really ask for it when the time comes. :thumbs:

Where do they ask for it? This is the documentation London tells a K1 to bring to the interview. That's all they want. https://uk.usembassy.gov/visas/fiancee-2/required-documents/

 

Meanwhile get the things you need for the medical in London. And get all your shots sorted before you go.  http://www.visamedicals.co.uk/us-bring.htm

As @Wuozopo says, they don’t ask for any proof of an ongoing relationship at the London K1 interview or advise you to bring any on their website - so if you choose to bring it, that’s down to you.

 

The only proof of an ongoing relationship that I brought were a few photos that I printed off on the morning of my interview. I didn’t need them and wasn’t asked for them, but it made me feel better to have them. Took me about 5 minutes and cost around £4 at Snappy Snaps. So yeah, I really wouldn’t recommend putting a novel together...
