This one has me worried...

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband is going for his interview in Montreal next month and we have everything ready. However, there is 1 thing that sits in my head and worries me a little. I am a fulltime student and do not work, when my husband gets his Visa, we are going to stay at my parents house for a few months until we both have jobs and get an apartment. Now my parents have both filled out financial affidavit's for my husband and make plenty of money. Will this look bad at the interview though? Could they deny his Visa just because I don't currently work? We have somewhere to live until we get our own place and he will be able to apply for work shortly after he gets here. Does anyone have any information regarding this matter? Thanks!

Having a joint sponsor is not uncommon (I am in the same situation as you, my mother-in-law will be my husbands joint sponsor) so they will not deny you purely because you are currently unemployed.

However, bare in mind that your husband will not be authorised to work in the US until roughly 3 months after entry on a K3 (if the EAD or AoS forms are submitted straight away). It takes up to 90 days to receive a work permit.
