Co-sponser requirements & DS-230

Ok, so after studying the I-134 me and my Fiance have worked out that he falls short of the required income to support me. His mom has offered to co-sponser but shes retired, would that be ok I wonder? She has a regular retirement check paid to her each month and whilst she also falls short income-wise she has assets that can meet the required level. Any help and advice on this would be much appreciated.

Also on the DS-230 it asks for date of marriage, spouse's name and address and how many times I've been married including my present marriage. But me and my fiance arent married yet. Should I still list his name and address under spouse name and address? Or put N/A? The 'how many times I've been married' gets me because I've been married before and got divorced. So you'd think I'd put married '1' times but then it says 'including my present marriage'.

Thanks :)

Put N/A for spouse's name and address, etc. If you were married before and divorced before, put 1 for the number of times you have been married and ignore the clause "including the present marriage." One form is used for many types of Visa applicants. This is not applicable to you.

The use of the joint sponsor is more difficult when the income is not sufficient but you can and must use assets. It depends on what type of assets and how they yare valued.

In general the assets are to be 5 times the amount of the income shortfall for the K-1. See the instructions for the I-864 (even though you are using the I-134) on page 9, Section 29 where this is clearly indicated.

Make sure his mother includes proof of being a US National, US Citizen or LPR. Birth Certificate or copy front and back of green card will do it. His mother must be domiciled in the United States or there will be potential qualification problems.

Good luck.
