K1 Co Sponsors are allowed.

Every once in a while we read a post on here where they were not allowed

But in general yes they are allowed.

You only heard it from one "horse". Many COs have approved K1s with a co sponsor. During the years I've been on forums WAY more K1s approved using a cosponsor than denied by a large margin!


K1 denied, K3/K4, CR-1/CR-2, AOS, ROC, Adoption, US citizenship and dual citizenship

!! ALL PAU!

I have a question somewhat on topic with this thread .....

When you send in the AofSupport ..... do you need the 3 previous years tax returns ... or just the most current?

At some point I was told 3 years ... but yesterday I was reading on the manila embassy website and it says the most current?

So a little confused here .... thanks in advance for any help

thats my question too..

i read it from forums that co sponsor is allowed and not...which is which?

coz we are thinking right now of getting a co sponsor since my baby bear is laid off since last oct..he used to work in auto business but the good thing is even if he was laid off he is getting unemployment and subpay..and soon hopefully since there is a good news regarding the bailout for auto business might be back to work this march or perhaps february.

although his ITR is above the required minimum salary..

Just because you submit cosponsor paperwork, does not indicate that the CO accepted the cosponsor in making their determination of support. The CO looks at your circumstances and can make a ruling based on his belief that you may or may not become a public charge. There is no set minimum income for this determination for the K visas. Minimums are set by statute for the I-864 which is not used for the nonimmigrant K visas. If you have cosponsor paperwork from close family members, it could show that you have a support network already in the U.S. and may lead him to determine that you are less likely to become a public charge. It does not prove that he used the cosponsor income to meet some minimum requirement. Likewise, if the cosponsor paperwork you present is from someone that has weaker ties, the same determination may not be made. In either event, the consulate in Manila will not use the paperwork to create a cosponsor dependency. They will rule based on the totality of the circumstances with the petitioner as the only sponsor.

During my interview June 05,2008, I was told by the pre-screener that CO don't accept co sponsor but I insisted to give the documents of my co sponsor because my husband (fiance then) income is not sufficient. I was expecting a question from the CO about the income but I only got one question.. Where did you meet?

No harm in trying.. I knew of someone the same interview as mine with co sponsor and got approved. She wasn't even bothered to asked about it by the CO.

To the OP, just be sure to have supporting papers. I think a family member like mother in law is a good choice of cosponsor rather than just a friend.

Good luck to you!

Good point! I believe so.. my co sponsor that time was my mother in law.
