I have received in the mail that my petition was approved on October 2nd. It says that the USCIS has done their part and they sent it to the NVC. I got some question. What do I do now? When do I fill out the affidavit of support and how do I do it? I am currently unemployed living with both my parents. Do I need a joint sponsor with one of them or how does it work? When I fill out the affidavit of support, who do I send it to ? Is there any other documents that need to be filled out? Thank you.

Hi there


What can be done when the US citizen is below the minimum poverty line?

He's from Brazil. She's from the US. We are preparing to apply for the K1 and found out that her income will be a problem.


We've heard it's possible to have a co-sponsor. Does it make things more difficult? How does the US consular service in Brazil see that? Also, do you think hiring an attorney would help at all in this case?

We really dont know what to do anymore. We received a checklist in the beginning of August. Checklist was mailed to NVC and received on August 21st. Called multiple times since then and nothing. No scan date. Mailed it a second time and they received it on Sept 8th. Called again, nothing. Mailed it a THIRD TIME and was received on Sept 23rd. Nothing. NO SCAN DATE and reps dont know what to say to me. I have emailed NVC the screen shots of those 3 tracking numbers showing they have arrived at NVC. I havent gotten a reply. We are confused and aggravated because I see people mailing their checklists and getting scanned DAYS shortly after. I have confirmed with reps wether We are mailing it to the correct address and we are!! Please!!!!! Is this normal??? We have been at NVC since May!!!

arrowI-129F Passport Photo Size (Issues in Brazil)

Hey everyone,


My fiancee and I are in Brazil right now (I'm visiting) and we're trying to take our passport photos for the I-129F. However, we're having a hard time finding a place that will do a 2" x 2" photo. Apparently, square passport photos are not standard or even offered in Brazil.

  • Would it be alright for us to use a photo that meets all of the other specifications, but is 35mm x 45mm (1.3" x 1.7") in size? Like this
  • Or would it be better for us to take the photos and have me attempt to print them in 2" x 2" on my photo printer when I get home to the states?

For reference, this seems to be the photo that every shop wants to offer us.


Thank you in advance for your help!

Hello everyone! We are new to this website and we are loving all the information exchange.

We are an American-Brazilian couple. My fiancee is spending a few months here and we have put together all the papers to start our k1 visa.

The question is: can we start it now while she is still here under a tourist visa or should we wait to start it after she returns to Brazil?

Thanks in advance!
