unemployed fiance?

Hi everyone,

My fiance (who lives in Canada) is getting read to quit his job for personal reasons. We've already sent our I-129F in and are waiting for the NOA2. He has money saved up and doesn't want another job until he moves down here after we receive the K-1 visa. Does he have to have a job to get approved for a K1 visa, or can he be unemployed? Would it hurt our chances of getting approved if he were unemployed? I would think that it doesn't matter, and they (government officials) would care only if I could support him financially or not. Can anyone help me out? Also, what does it take to get his truck down here? We plan on driving down once approved for the visa, and I think there are car smogging laws, etc that we have to abide by? If I could get a website or something that'd be great. Thanks!

It is only your income that will be looked at. His income is irrelevant as he will be immigrating to the US after the K-1 is issued. The govt just wants to see that someone will sponsor him and he will not be come a public charge.

They are only concerned with your income and if you can support him. His income is irrelevant since he will me migrating to the US. I would not worry about him losing his job, as long as you have a stable job that is all that matters.

If he's quitting his job, if it were me, I would wait. You don't know how long its going to be before the move can take place. He could be months. If he quits closer to his move date he can file for his Canadian EI after he moves. I know from experience from a friend, who appeal and appealed and still didn't get her unemployment. She quit a couple months before. Tried to open up the claim up there, and they response was that it was two soon before the move. The whole process isn't cheap and he might want to hang on to the job a little longer. If cash isn't a problem well then he should be fine. A fellow VJer who was at the interview same day I was got questioned as to why she wasn't employed, but its the petitioner who has to show the ability to support. Your vehicle has to be imported into the US, he'll have to contact the manufacturer to get his letter that states it meets all safety and US emmission control standards for the year it was built. I got mine from GM and it cost me almost $80 bucks and about a week or so to come in the mail. I didn't realize that I didn't have to import it at the time of crossing, the border patrol officer said I could do it when I went to do the transfer and liscensing but since I already had everything I did it then. Best of luck.

As Wis-Can said, tell him not to quit his job until after the visa interview and he's ready to move. Then he'll be able to collect EI. He doesn't need to be employed for the process however. Another note, if he's going to be visiting you while this process is on-going, he's going to have a difficult time getting across the border to visit without a job. He has to provide strong ties to Canada when he's crossing.

Here's two links...one for the Canada forum here, another with links and references to importing vehicles.
