My wife received her Visa in February. My stepsons had an interview the 17th and again the 22nd of July. At first I thought there was a problem with the income requirements. So I sent bank statements showing well over what was required for income. Still denied VISA. I was even going to send in 2009 taxes as soon as I filed in February if necessary. Now my wife tells me they are requiring a co-signer for my stepsons, because I am over 60. Anyone else have the same problem?

Have you seen a copy of the RFE slip so that you can see exactly what is being asked for? Sometimes things can be misunderstood.

The CO's do have some latitude when evaluating the sponsor's ability to meet the obligation(s). When considering assets the I-864 does say: Only assets that can be converted into cash within one year and without considerable hardship or financial loss to the owner may be included. Could the CO see considerable hardship to you if assets were liquidated?

Have a great job and make about $10,000 more then required for 4 persons. Not much in assets, but what the heck. CO told wife Because of my age, 63, wanted a co-signer. I was dumb founded. I guess that is why they would prefer not to have me at the interview. I would have went ballistic. Yes, Viet Nam Vet. Don't take ####### from anyone. Paid my dues already.

In resonse to those who were interested in the age discrimination at the Bogota Embassy. All they would put on the slip was We needed a co-signer. My wife had already received her visa. This was the second interview for my sons. It was very clear, I made $10,000 over the requirements. What they told my wife verbably, was I needed a co-signer because I was 60 years old. My wife contacted an old friend that was willing to co-sign. Within 10 days , new interview, co-signer, approved visas for my step-sons. There is more to the story, but I'll wait until my family is here before telling "the rest of the story".

The rest of the story is that the co-signer was leaving USA to live in a foreign country. I did not know this at the time. He was fed up with USA. Probably will never return.
