Affidavit of Support Questions

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

With the medical over, I'm now working on making sure I have the Affidavit of support stuff under control and was hoping to get some feedback from others who have gone through Montreal recently.

My fiance technically doesn't have a job. He's still got one more year of school and does landscaping at his dad's place in exchange for room and board and food and an allowance, of sorts. Not under the table pay for services or anything, just generally living at home while he's finishing school.

In terms of my fiance, I know he still needs to fill out the form even if not earning any income. Would he need to bring anything else? He has tax returns from 2009 which was the last year he worked (only part time on campus), but didn't file last year due to having no income at all. Would his bank statements/etc be necessary in this situation? or just the form itself?

Obviously, we've arranged a co-sponsor, his mother. She works part time but the bulk of her income (which alone brings her well above 125% of the poverty line for her household +me) actually comes from her retirement. She has quarterly statements for the retirement, outlining the amount she recieves. For her, we were going to be bringing the affidavit of support document, the last year's worth of her retirement quarterly statements, several pay stubs from her part time employment as well as a letter from her employer.

Will my fiance's lack of income raise flags or will his mother's ability to co-sponsor us nullify that? And will the fact her income comes mostly from retirement also be an issue? Should we find a co-sponsor who works full time, instead?

I have savings as well as a small inheiritance from my father, but we were planning on leaving those in my Canadian account to cover my OSAP until I've got my AOS done and can work.

Hoping someone will have advice specific to Montreal and what they look for. Thanks!
