My US fiance is currently on disability, and that income alone isn't enough to satisfy the i134 requirements. We don't have (and probably can't get) a US sponsor.
However my savings / investments / property assets get us well over the line. As soon as we get to the i864 form for AOS though, we're gold, even though the threshhold is higher. The i864 form allows me to include these things.
I've read anecdotal evidence that the London embassy is pretty good about "self-sponsoring" applicants, but I like to be prepared...
My plan is to provide the following at my interview:
- the i134 form as filled in my my fiance
- an i864 form completed by me
- valuations of my flat from 2 estate agents
- current mortgage statement showing how much is outstanding (hence proving the equity available)
- bank statements from my savings / investment accounts all dated around the same time
- bank statement from my company bank account (I'm self employed) proving that the payments are legitimate dividend payments and not just someone putting money into my account to cheat the system
- company invoices and company articles of association (showing that I'm the sole shareholder of the company and showing where the income is coming from) to support the above
Is that enough? What else should I provide? Are we going to face any problems at interview?
My thinking is that if I can prove that we meet the AOS / i864 requirements, then the shortfall on the i134 will be okay. I'm assuming that if I can prove that I'm not going to be a burden on the US taxpayer, and have enough money / cashable assets to last me should I be unable to find a job for 5 years (which is unlikely!!!) we should be okay?
Thank you in advance!
