Co-Sponsor support document

Hello all, has anyone used a co-sponsor on a support document to obtain a finance visa. I don't have a job now but I do have money in bank. We both plan on working but jobs are scarce right now. Or visa should be coming up for NAO2 approval soon so we would probably need a co-sponsor for support. I have a family member that will supply this document and has the money to support the 4 of us. So the bottom line question is should this be a problem? Also what is the forms we need to fill out for sponsor and co-sponsor?

Thanks

Chris

If you are filing for I-485(adjustment of status)you may need to file with I-864(affidavit of support)for the sponsor and co-sponsor.You can also use I-864a for a family member affidavit of support,read the instructions about affidavit of support in some website.like USCIS.gov and link to I-864 instructions.

If I'm not wrong, upon approval and case getting sent to the embassy, the affidavit of support form should be part of the interview preparatory packet they send you( or if you downloaded) Form I-134 accompanied with a signed and notarized letter from the co-sponsor.

Not to be a pooper or anything but I had my interview last December 2010 in Manila and they questioned my fiance's earnings because he is a fresh grad and is not earning much.. His dad was our co-sponsor who was earning a lot so we told him that but the CO flat out told us "We do not really accept co-sponsors for k1 here in Manila" The only thing that saved us was I showed the CO my diploma and work experience in China as a speech therapist at an american international school. so he said "Okay I will take your youth and education into consideration."


My Journey:

We met through a study-abroad program in Shanghai, China in August of 2009

We got engaged March of 2010

I received my K1 VISA in 6 months (June-December 2010)

We were married 04/02/2011
I received my conditional 2-year greencard (AOS) in 2.5 months with no interview (April-June 2011)

Our son was born 02/03/2013

I received my masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology 04/17/2013

I received my 10-year greencard (ROC) in 3 months with no interview (March-June 2013)

My husband returned from deployment 06/20/2013

My naturalization journey took 4 months (April-August 2014)

I became a US citizen on 08/01/2014

Received passport in 3 weeks (regular processing)

Thank you, VJ! smile.png

No I'm not a student. I was retired but since the economy went belly up I need to return to work. My savings acct. is such that I have enough for over 3 years of the required support amount for 2 people. That is why I was hoping that a co-sponsor would be all I needed to get the visa and then find a job.

Thank you for your response. Yes I believe I will be able to show through my savings and the co-sponsor for support that we would not pose a financial burden to the U.S. Congratulations on obtaining your visa and I wish you and your fiance the best.
