Hello Peeps!

I'm about to send my K1 application for my fiancee and im worried about my income. I know the US Embassy in Manila doesn't allow such. We've been together since October of 2004. I got here in the US at 2005 and finally got my citizenship (after 5 years of us waiting). I know that we can comply with most of the requirements from USCIS, NVC and USEM except for the income. I went home last 2007, 2008 and just got back again about a couple of weeks ago. I'm 24 y/o currently a college student and works part time. I only earn about close to 14k per year because im at school most of the time. On the other hand, my fiancee holds a Bachelor's Degree and is currently overseas (We're both from the Philippines and she is currently in Singapore for employment). She earns about $28,800SGD (about $22,000USD) per year. I'm taking up accounting and about to graduate by the end of next year. Do you think that this can be grounds for the US Embassy in Manila to allow a co-sponsor for my application? I just wanted to clear this up before i send out the app. Thanks much everyone!

Richard

Your fiancee's earning potential doesn't matter. If her income was going to continue (with the same company) here in the US, then her income could be used.

You ought to ask this question in the Philippines regional forum. From what I recall the accepted co-sponsors for K visa petitions were close/blood relatives of the US Citizen petitioner. I assume that the thinking on the part of the CO is that an immediate relative would be more apt to meet the sponsorship responsibility.

Again, do some research in the PI regional forum to verify what I am remembering.

Thanks for the reply! I think she'll do good when she gets here. I'm also trying my best to finish up as soon as possible. My uncle is willing to co sponsor us, he's single and earns about $55,000 a year. I'm wondering if there's someone out there with the same situation as im in. Most of the co sponsor probs that i saw on the portal was dated about a year to 4 years ago.

An uncle may be close enough. The final determination is made my the CO adjudicating the case. If that is denied then you could get married and apply for the spouse visa which uses the I-864 affidavit of support. The I-864 does have provisions for co-sponsors.

Best of luck.
