I believe the Philipphines will accept a Co-Sponsor IF an Immediate Family Member of the USC.

You maybe able to answer your own question here. What did your Finace make last year for 2010 Taxes (Gross Income) and what is his Currant Year to Date from Wages in 2011 so far?

Having 2 Children does not add to much to the requirements. I'm not looking at the guidlines but maybe $24,000.00 or less.

For last year 2010 I'm sure that his income didn't reached $24,000.00.. this 2011 he works 27 days and earn $15,000.00 as a pipe fitter. His a contractual worker and not every month he always get a job and that worries me.. :(

You should get one to play it safe. I think it depends on a case-to-case basis. In my personal experience, the CO who did my interview did not accept our co-sponsor, but I know some who have successfully used one. If your fiance did not meet the requirements then you should definitely have one. :)

HI, i read here you used co-sponsor but was not accepted.. i just want to ask if you submitted the I-134 of the co-sponsor together with your other documents? or you gave it during the interview proper?

I'm somehow worried, my fiance just started working last february, so we dont have ITRs yet since we've been together here in manila before he went back to the states. His current income is $800 per annum short of the 125% poverty level which is $18,400 i think. But he does have savings in the bank which is over the x 5 the $800 shortage, which i read could be used as a cover up for the shortage. We've been together for 9 nine years and the upcoming interview is freaking me out. ohmy.gif

I know co-sponsors are not not allowed in USEM but we're also preparing his mom's ITR's for back -up, just in case.
