He will be naming all persons he previously submitted an affidavit of support for. The will count in his "household size" when the Consulate calculates it, so his income will need to be sufficient for the two of you, plus any children he has, plus each person he submitted an affidavit of support for previously.

With secondary sponsor, do you mean he was a household member of the main sponsor, or a co-sponsor? Ie did he fill in a I-864 or no? If he filled in a form, then he must count them.

So, assuming no other dependants he sponsored 3 people last year, plus you now, plus himself= 5 people= $ 32'237 minimum

Yes you will need either a co-sponsor or your fiance can use assets (property, savings account etc) which must be three times as much as the short fall- so about $6000 in your case. Assets would be easier as Manila US embassy often denies co-sponsors.

A little language problem here. Sounds like he acted as cosponsor for his brother's wife and step daughter and the brother is a citizen, so doesn't count. 26+ is less than 27.9 +, so he probably does need a cosponsor. He might get by in a pinch if he includes a letter of explanation for the previous affidavits of support. This may well be critical as Manila often refuses to accept cosponsors in K visa cases.

yes.. he was a co sponsor for his brother's wife and their daughter, BUT THE BROTHER is a GREEN card holder, not yet a citizen..

do you think it will count? if yes, then we might be needed a co sponsor.. can his cousin can be his co sponsor? any suggestion.. thanks

Unless he sponsored his brother, don't count the brother. Again, Manila often does NOT accept cosponsors in K visa cases. You'll want to include an explanation that indicates who was sponsored and that your petitioner and primary sponsor was just the joint sponsor, not the primary sponsor. I would also include evidence of the brother's ability to support his family.

Financial (public charge) considerations are a subjective decision, not a goal line you cross or don't cross. I suggest you have your fiance get advice directly. This is the US Citizen's responsibility and they$9 will have a better understanding of their "gross income" and other related issues. It's always more difficult to try to work through sponsorship issues with the foreigner than with the actual sponsor.

It's sometimes very difficult for the US Citizen too. I recently had a conversation that went like this.

What is your hourly pay?

$9.50

How many hours a week do you work?

I work from 8:30 to 4.

Again, how many hours a week do you work?

35 hours.

Then, your income is too low. Please fax me a pay stub.

Ok.

Pay stub indicates the hourly rate is more than $15.00 an hour and the petitioner easily qualifies as the sponsor for a two-person household. Even the net pay in this case was far over $9.50

Get your fiancee here to ask his own questions. Ok?

You said he sponsored two people. He did not sponsor his brother, so his brother doesn't count. We need to hear from Jake. Ok?
