Hey there, I was just wondering does it matter if the benificary (inteneding immigrant) is unemployed? ......... I'm thinking no because it's the petitioners job to support them ..............but I don't know, any thoughts?

Thanks! :star:

Well, the US government pretty much thinks that if the petitioner in the US believes that the beneficiary is worthy of moving to the US, then the US government thinks so as well, with some notable exceptions like past drug abuse, immigration transgressions, etc.

In general, requiring the beneficiary to be employed would be quite problematic. Many are students and in a lot of countries, students live with their parents. In the culture of many Latin American countries, children live with their parents even after graduating college and finding a job (I personally know many examples). In some countries, many women really are not allowed to work and therefore live with their parents until marriage. Basically, it would be impossible to make the beneficiaries adhere to American cultural standards in order to obtain a visa.

In my case, my wife currently lives with her parents, although she has been on her own in the past because her parents had to spend some time outside of her country. Why would she look for her own place, which could involve things like signing a long term lease, when she is about to move to the US?

Absolutely ! With few exceptions, beneficiary's income not evaluated. Is some exception with UK filers, where a beneficiary can 'self-sponser', but is different math, different calculations.
