K1 visa photos of us together

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I wanted to ask about a different issue. I have many photos of my Filipina fiancee and I together from my trip to the Philippines back in July. Some of them even include her cousins. My question is how do I include some of these in my petition? I don't know how to make printouts with several photos on them and add captions. I have photo software but I don't know how to use it. I have been talking to a local immigration lawyer but I am starting to get frustrated with him because I don't agree with some of the things he is telling that are needed. But again is there an easy way to include several photos of my fiancee together without having to make things look pretty, so to speak? I have read where you can write on the back of the photos and that would be ideal for me. I also have all boarding passes and receipts from the hotel and even restaurants and other stuff along with copies of my stamped passport. But my main question is how do I include the photos of her and I together without making a photo album?

You can have them printed at Walgreens or something, write on the back, put on a ziplock bag, label with your name, attach to the envelope/folder you are sending.

 

Or you can copy/paste on a word document, add a few lines (who, where, when).

 

You can't send in a photo album or a scrapbook, regardless of what YouTube says 

 

You can definitely do this without a lawyer too. Just familiarize yourself with the process (see official USCIS instructions, and K1 guide on this site, browse on this site). Most do it by themselves. You can save yourself a few thousands,

Pictures are secondary evidence and are of little utilitarian value,  in fact many people have been approved without sending in a single photograph 


YMMV

I did basically the same thing but I used a online service to do this on real printer paper. We sent in 3 8X10 pages of about 4 photos each of us together and me with her family. It worked great for us

I had many photos of Carlos and I on my phone.     I simply did screen shots on my phone with the photos and then emailed them to myself  and printed them .  So i put some examples below of screen shots and then printing them...as well as we had photos with dates that I also copied and sent.  Hope that helps.
