Affidavit of Support interview experiences?)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

i would really love to hear some of your experiences during recent interviews in regard to the affidavit of support questioning. How many of you are being asked? How in depth are they looking?

I've seen people on other forums saying "oh they don't even ask anymore" but I am hoping to hear from someone whose been to the Sydney consulate recently...

I'm using a co-sponsor so I'm just a little nervous it won't be good enough and would love some VJ moral support specific to the Australian embassy..

I'm 25. I was a full time college student until 2011 so I didn't work and I have no W2's or tax returns in the U.S.. I moved overseas to live with my fiancé from 2013- June 2015 so I have no big bank statements here in the states. I have had a bank account set up here though since college. Im currently unemployed but I'm not on any government assistance and I should secure a job within the next week or so. Anyway my step father is going to be our co sponsor and he makes plenty more then the requested amount..

I'd just like to know how often it's being looked into deeply during Australian interviews..

Thanks!

I had two co-sponsors when I had my interview in Sydney (Sept 2013). They certainly looked over them but seemed happy enough since they made well over the poverty threshold. It is nerve wrecking but you shouldn't have any issues provided your co-sponsors income is all legal, etc. Good luck!

Good to know, thank you!

Hubby had his interview at the end of April.

We had me as his sponsor, and a joint sponsor (brother in law). they didn't question anything about it, and brother in law made maybe $4,000 over the limit. Not a whole lot, but plenty to pass :) I only came back to live in the U.S. in February, and I'm now 8 months pregnant so we relied on the joint sponsor for the income support for immigration . We also completed the assets portion so we could sponsor ourselves, but we were told that a joint sponsor earning a U.S. Wage would provide better support for immigration so we used that as well. All went smoothly and hubby is here working now!

Good luck
