CR 1: co sponsor or self sponsor?

:blink: Hi everyone.

We´ve been spending a ton of time researching the various options for getting Daley into the States. As I have said on the K-1 discussion board, I am a 20 year old ex student living with Daley (my British Fiance) abroad in Spain (only on a tourist visa). We plan to marry very soon and start the I-130 petition for the Cr-1 visa, having decided that is probably the best option.

The questions I am really burdened with are about the financial end, which I know I have to face after the I-130 is processed. Here it is: I have not had a full time job ever as I have been a full time student until this point in my life (of which I am living abroad unemployed). Daley is also unemployed HOWEVER he has recently sold his house and has a savings of around 60,000 plus Great British Pounds. Does this mean we will need to seek out a co sponsor or can Daley, the intended immigrant, account for the fact that I have no income and/or assets of my own?

Also, to my knowledge I have not filed any tax returns through the various part time employments I have had. I can recall the pay stubs saying that a certain amount was taken out for taxes, and I remember filling out certain forms about taxes at the beginning of various jobs (ie camp counselor, waitress, etc) but never doing anything after that. Do I have reason to worry, and if so, what can I do?

Thanks to everyone that replies. This site is invaluable.

The US Citizen Spouse MUST file I-864 to sponsor the immigrant, you can also use a Joint-sponsor who is in the USA.

Foreign citizen cannot self-sponsor for an immigrant visa they can for NON-Immigrant K-Visa.

I would be worried about the Tax Returns. I would sit down and get at least back to 2004 done. Even if you were a student and overseas. You should try to file some thing. This could cause problems for you in the future regardless of your immigration process requiring it or not.

You are going to most likely need a co-sponsor. I would start looking around for someone (a US Citizen) who is willing and has the required means to be a co-sponsor. The 60K pounds should work out to about 110K USD, but that would have to be transfered and already in your account, which may not be what you want to do with it right now. I would shop around for a sponsor and get some kind of tax filing in for those past years just to cover yourself. If you were over seas working then file the 2555 with the 1040s.
