I recently married a fine lady from China. We are putting together our CR-1 visa now.

I read the I-864 support requirements. In 2008 and 2009 my business collapsed and I did not earn enough to meet the minumum earning requirements. So far this year I have recovered and should earn a 6 figure income.

Can I use my assets for support? If so how much does the US Government require I have?

income requirements are at 125 % of the poverty guidelines for the 'household size'

assets are computed at 'asset value'/3

let's say x = your financial picture then

x = income + ('asset value'/3)

example - 2 ppl (you and yer spouse) , no w-2 income , pg amount 19,000 -

then you'll need 19,000 x 3 in assets .

The poverty guidelines are in the 864-P document.

The formulas are in the I-864 instructions.

You've some time to 'prep yer monies' - the I-864 is submitted to NVC, during NVC processing, and is evaluated on interview day, at Guangzhou.

If you've not filed yet - review the I-130 instructions for 'proof of bonafide marriage' evidence, there are 6 item types - here's what I did, ages past - http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/218775-bonafide-relationship/page__p__3324240__hl__Rustic#entry3324240

since yer 'homed' to Guangzhou, you qualify for NVC Electronic Processing, later, after NOA-2 - see


Good Luck !

You should read the instruction pages of the I-864. It clearly states that you can use your assets to meet the sponshipship requirement.
