Joint Account problematic for Affidavit of Support?

Hi. I have a joint account with a family member who is not a member of my household and who otherwise would have no reason to be on any of the financial documents I submit along with the affidavit of support. However, I am going to use the assets in this joint account to bolster my showing that I am capable to support my SO. Has anyone had experience with using a joint account to demonstrate assets? Legally, as it is a joint account of course I am able to remove any or all of the money without the consent of my family member. If for some reason however the consulate did want to see co-sponsorship forms or other information from this family member, I am quite certain they would refuse to provide that documentation.

It will be no problem! I too had a family member on my joint account when I paid the fee to start the process when I filed the affidative of support back in May 09. And that family member's last name was different than mine on the joint account. Also, Having huge amount of money in the account is nice, But all they care about is your tax returns and W2's. This is all they need to confirm that you can support you wife and you have current employment.
