Lose a job before interview date, any effects?

Hi Everyone,

I visited Vietnam in November 2009 and met my fiancee for the first time at Coopmart Super Market where she worked as a saleslady.

I retured to Vietnam again in March 2010 to visit my fiancee again.

I returned to Vietnam in January 2011 to celebrate with New Year (Tet) with my fiancee and her family.

All together, I have made 3 trips to Vietnam. Her interview date will be on March 15th, 2011.

Currently, I work 2 jobs as a Software Engineer at 2 different companies. 1st Job I get pay $65,0000 a year and 2nd job I get pay $35 an hour. But my 2nd job I only work as a part time programmer and I use my laptop to work remotely. So I don't get pay as much as my first job and since I work on an hourly basis, my income for my second is not as stable as my first job.

I want to make a 4th trip back to Vietnam on March 9th, 2011 to accompany my fiancee. I'm pretty sure If I go back to Vietnam this time, I will lose my first job. If I lose my main source of income 6 days before her interview, will that have any side effect on her interview?

Thanks again.

Well,by the time she have interivew you will have the most up to date info for the I 134- Income requirement. If you don't meet the income requirement when it is time to AOS in the US that when it could be a issue. The fiance really does not have to be present for the interview. I was not present at my fiance's interview.

I'll do everything for my fiancee. As long as I know if my 4th trip can benefit her to pass the interview. Even if I have to lose my job, but if I know that my 4th trip will allow her to pass her interview, I will do it.

How will you be of any help to either of you if you are unemployed. If you have a line on another job, or other income then it is your choice to do what you as you are an adult. But keep your mind clear, talk it over with the fiancee' and see what she thinks. You may get a different perspective. Whether you go and lose your primary job or stay , have income for say.....plane tickets, wedding, change of status fees, ect.....is for you to decide. Choose wisely.

There is no proof that they would even consider the fact that you made another trip, many have made trips after the initial filing that were ignored by the CO... so you could be throwing that job away... most here would agree that the trip can help with your SO's confidence at the interview but it would likely have little or no impact on the CO's decision that you were sitting outside.

I agree with the other posts. You should not risk losing a stable job/income to attend the interview as you would not even be a participant in the interview process. Others who have gone to the interview with their fiance/ee have just sat on the sideline and watched. Although you love her, you should consider how you would support the two of you if she gets her visa approved. You will still have to apply for AOS, etc. once she is in the US, all of these things require more money. The visa petition is one of the steps in the entire process you will have to go through to ensure she will/can remain in the US at her will. Not only will you have to support her emotionally and mentally once she is here, you will also have to support her financially. And let's not forget the cost of medical benefits that you will have to pay if you want to provide her with it. It might be overwhelming if you had to look for another job at the same time. What you can do for her is help her prepare all the required documents and any other supporting documents you may have, and help her to review the materials. Good luck with whatever you decide!

Don't forget that looking for a job is stressful under the best of conditions, and who needs more of that when we are already stressing so much over the Visa process. Keep your job, in the long run, you are doing you both the biggest favor, but, that is just my opinion. Best of luck in what ever decision you make. :star:

Thanks again.

I'll refrain from engaging in judgmental comments and counseling you on life decisions in this IMMIGRATION FORUM. My immigration advice is to complete, date and sign your I-134 and assemble the supporting documents, pay stubs etc. while you're still employed and get them to your fiancee either in person or by mail.

HCMC is a tough Consulate. Time spent together in person is the strongest evidence of a bona fide relationship. If you want immigration advice about how important a fourth visit will be, that would depend on the other factors in your case. If there are red flags, that would make a difference in any impact of all other factors. Best to approach the questions considering the totality of circumstances, not just the number of visits.

Why is this in the IR1/CR1 visa forum?
