Sorry if this question has been asked a thousand and one times, but is there a minimum income requirement for the U.S. citizen petitioner, and if so, how much is it? If the petitioner (My fiance) doesn't meet those requirements what is likely to happen? If she just falls short perhaps can she go through a co-sponser (Her parents etc)?

Why is it that the only one who can stop the crying is the one who started it in the first place?

Generally, it's 125% of the poverty level for the size of her household, which includes you (the person she is sponsoring), herself, and anyone she supports. For two people, it's currently $18,212 per year.

Most consulates will accept a co-sponsor.

Hey guys, I have another quick question & I don't see the point in starting a whole new thread to ask it, so I'll drop it here. I'm going to be going to see Whitney in near future & that's when we plan to file initially for the first I-129F form, I'm guessing that can be downloaded from the links provided with the rest of forms needed, but is there anything I should bring with me when I go see her that we might need to make the application? I.E my birth certificate etc.

Are you the petitioner or th benficiary? As the petitioner you need several documents all of which are outlined in the guides. As the benficiary however you won't need those documents until it gets to the consulate phase.

Edit : Upon reading closer I think you are the benficiary so no not necessary, you may however want to bring evidence of your relationship to include with the answer to question 18 on the 1-129f. You passport with any passport stamps, itineriary and boarding passes for past trips, phone or e-mail records, pictures, etc.

I've been reading through the guides & everything, but I was just wondering - does age have any factor in this? My fiance & I are both young, but we're extremely sure that this is what we want to do. Will our ages have any say in this, or have any part of being denied? Thank you guys so much for your help!

As long as you are both of legal age to marry, that is the only requirement.
