I am very anxious to get it over with. I think I have all my stuff ready and in order. I have the origianl and copy of everything below

NOA2

Passport

Passport pics

Birth certificate

Divoce decree

police report

affidavit of support

letter from his employer and the 3 recent pay stubs

Letter of intent to marry me (do i need to do one up signed by myself aswell?)

My medical is June 11 and i pick up the evelope the morning of the interview at 7 then run over to the consulate.

Dont forget your Express post enveloppe and to write down your tracking number.

I dont think you need a letter of intent yourself, but I guess it doesnt take much time to write one up and then that's one less thing to worry about.

I know you might know this but I didn't see the following items on your check list:

a) Medical sealed envelope.

b) Copies of NOA-1, letter from NVC, and a copy of the I-129F package sent out initially.

c) Birth certificate.

d) DS-160 form + confirmation page.

Hope this helps!

Do you think we will need a sponsor. He is above the poverty line now he just started work in February and his annual income is above it, however last year he wasn't because he lost his job and was on unemployement for a while. i am not sure if i should get a sponsor for the interview or not or if the letter from his employer and his paystubs will be enough. I am confused as it says you only need a co sponsor if you don't have adequate income, he does now but when they take a look at his tax return from last year it will below

Yes, the reason (I think) it is so big is that they say (or used to say) on their instructions to bring 1 of those envelopes for every 4 visas being issued. This saves them having people bring the wrong size I guess.

As far as the Affidavit of Support goes, his current income should be above the poverty line. It will be on your shoulders to prove that his income is above the poverty line as his last years returns will not indicate that.

If you could get a co-sponsor, that would be really good.

Good luck!

We are going to use his moms assets amd she is going to co sign for us, his father passed away 4 years ago and there is an inheritance sitting in the bank which we can use as assets to supplement the $3000 that he was short last year on his tax return, so $3000 x 5 years is $15000 we should be ok. I assume i just get her to complete the I-134 form and put in the amount she has in savings and then a copy from the bank showing how much is on account in the savings.

On the affidavit of support, i noticed my fiancé checked the "I do not intend to make any contributions to support the person on question 3" (Question 11, juste before signing). Will this cause a problem? Was he supposed to check the "i intend" for the interview?
