A couple NVC related questions

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We have a couple questions we just aren't sure about since both my wife and I are currently living outside of the U.S. I am the USC but we are both living and working in Canada, I have a work visa. I do still have ties to the U.S. since we live in a border town, still have a U.S. bank account and a po box mailing address.

We are wondering about the choosing of an agent. Do we even need to do that? If so I would be the agent but don't have a US address other than the po box since we are living outside the country.

Also, for the Affadavit of Support, do I have to have a job in the US or can we just use our bank documents? We have more than enough money in our bank accounts, is that enough proof?

Thanks for any help! It's hard finding these answers when both of us are out of the country.

You do need to fill out the DS260 but I don't know who you will use / select to be your choice of agent .

You can use your asset/funds in you bank account as well as you can get a co-signor for the AOS.

Have you been filing taxes in the US???

Yup I've still filed my taxes so I have that and the money in our bank accounts. With the money we have I'm not sure we would need a joint sponsor unless they require it since I don't have a job lined up in the states, but that would be the only reason as what we have is well over the poverty line. I just don't know the answer to that as I can't find that info anywhere.
