What is your experience using assets alone for an affidavit of support?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance's interview is coming up and my only concern is the affidavit of support. Supposedly, it depends on the consulate IF assets are acceptable or not.

I DO have the assets that would cover 5 years at 125%.

I do not work as I have been living in India the past few months.

Has anyone used assets alone when applying for an Indian citizen? The interview will be in Mumbai.

Does it matter what form the assets are in - I have 20% savings + 80% money market investments and may stand to inherit some real estate as well.

Do I really need a co-sponsor when I am well covered by my assets? If so, what if they only have assets as well?

Would it count for or against me that I sponsored someone in the past? My ex-husband is now a US citizen so I am no longer "responsible" for him, but I did use my assets alone at that time, 10 years ago.

the source of your assets may come into question. you may need to document how you came by these assets, and how long you have had them. this due to the fact that certain people from certain high fraud countries have in past pooled assets and loan proceeds from family and friends into one pot to meet the requirements and enable an illegitimate immigration to occur.

the time between your divorce and application for a new K1 may also be questioned. hopefully it is 2 years, or so.
