Should My Fiancee Have A Job?

My fiancee (the beneficiary) currently works but her job is very hard and she doesn't get home until like 9 pm every night. I would like for her to quit, but I wanted to find out how this would affect our visa. I am the USC and I currently make barely enough to meet the financial requirements (around 19,000 a year). I have my mother and/or father as cosponsors so as far as I know that's not a problem. But perhaps the consular will determine that we are a risk for becoming a public charge and look at whether the beneficiary has a job as a way to determine if she can contribute to our family? She has two degrees and working here in the U.S. will be no problem, but I'm not sure how they judge these sorts of things. So my question is if she quits her job, could that negatively impact our chances of getting our visa approved?

Thanks

Her job in Ukraine really won't effect your petition at all, nor will her education. USCIS just needs to determine that some one has the income to support her - so she doesn't arrive and go on some aid program.

It has no effect on the visa.

It may affect her life there, loss of income, and there is no guarantee she will get a visa or when, so it is usually best not to burn one's bridges. The decision is a personal one and has no bearing whatsoever on the visa.
