New here - question about expedition and affidavit of support

I just joined here and it looks like there is a lot of useful information on this site. Maybe someone here can help me with two questions. First, I guess it would be helpful to know that we met while in South Korea. I am American and he is from Cameroon. My visa expires at the end of this month and I will have to go home. We are going to try to get married next week if we can get the right paperwork for my husband. We are having some trouble because his consulate here doesn't know what to give him. We will either be filing for a spouse visa or a fiance visa. I am 6 weeks pregnant and really want him to be with me when our child is born.

1. I am worried about the financial requirements for sponsoring my fiance's/husband's visa. I read somewhere that either 100% or 125% of the federal poverty guideline is required in order to sponsor the visa. Is this correct? I think I will be fine if that is the case, but I know I won't make a lot of money. Will his savings be taken into account also? I am worried that his visa could be rejected if it is decided that I don't make enough money to support us both.

2. I read something on here about a request to expedite a petition but I couldn't find any information about it on the US Immigration website. Can anyone tell me the requirements to expedite a petition or send me a link to the information? Does pregnancy count as a good reason to expedite a petition? I will really need his support, both emotionally and financially when our baby is born.

Thanks for any information! I am really starting to panic about everything!

YOu will file CR-1 for spouse and should marry with child on the way. but do not expect him to be here for the birth. My process has taken 16 months from day i filed to interview. the Finacial is very important. for 2 it is just over $18000 but you will have 3 by time of interview. that is annual income only according to tax returns. Other things they look at at property you own, car titles, savings, chenking account balances, investments, etc. while you are with him, fill out the 130 and his bilgraphy, get as many supporting docmements that you can. His birth certificate, marriage documtents, ( translated into Enlish and cetififed -2 copies --1 for immigration and 1 for NVC. nice to have 1 for your files too) national ID, passport, etc.Not really a way to expediate for pregnacy. If ther was, a lot of people would use it. Hope this helps.

Assuming you are in South Korea now -

If you've been in SKorea 6 months so far, you guys can marry in SKorea and then file the I-130 to the USEmbassy in Seoul, be prepared to extend your visa at least 3 to 4 more months, waiting for the paperwork to unwind at the US Embassy IV unit. You'll have to qualify on the sponsership on the I-864, if you don't qualify, you'll need a co-sponser/joint-sponser.

Otherwise, yer filing an I-130 to Chicago lockbox - expect 6 to 10 months from filing to interview date.

*** not a K-3 visa topic, moving to IR-1/CR-1 forum ***
