evidence chat history

Hi

i am currently looking at my msn/skype chat history and amongst relevant supportive chat for the visa application there are personal conversations which i would not want the co to be reading,

will immi accept cut and paste into word document, or does it have to be screenshots???? as with screenshots i can not remove the personal convo sections.

thanks

If by chatting that infers you were not actually together, then forget it in total as an indication of a relationship.
If you want to just show how long you have known oneanother before starting the residing together relationship that Immi look for then you would only need a bit of the dated history.

Hi gys

I have printed the skype and msn stuff for the application. I figred if they ask for emails, letters and mobile phone records that skype and msn are just as good. I thought abot going through it all and blotting out the stuff that was a bit personal but then I thought, this is my relationship and they want to see that it is real with its ups and downs and private moments.

I am sure they will be discrete with it. I am sure they have seen more personal stuff than what we have put into print.

If Wanderer is correct then I guess its up to you what you are comfortable with.

:-)

hehehe true true who knows what the immi officers have seen

there will always be someone worse out there

the only thing im worried about is there is alot of culture difference compared to australia and other countries in europe, so i dont know how the immi people in other countries will find some very personal concersations where as for us in australia it is seen as normal and no big deal

i have read on some other forums about peoples experience where they were looked down upon the interview because of culture difference, eg a applicant was asked if they give out their number to everyone guy on the train......the person had met there partner on the train and had exchanged number on the spot

did you just copy and paste into word document, or supply screen shots?

I think I went into skpye and selected his name, then selected 'from the beginning' and right clicked to 'select all' and then pasted to word doc. It pastes lots of detail so thats good. length of calls, messages, date etc.

I dont like screen shots. too fiddly and not as clear. i would imagine it would take half a day to do it that way too.

Sending in MSN/Skype transcripts is pretty pointless if you ask me. The date stamps are easy to change - the Case Officers know this and as such treat them all as weak evidence...
