Hi Green/Tran,

If you can start at the very beginning of the Asia: East and Pacific (Except China) regional forum that your posting in, there are numerous posts regarding this same issue.

Some have had no problems with co-sponsors, while others have run into difficulty. Again, like I mentioned in my other post regarding the I-134, a lot of discretion is left to the interviewing consular officer as to the credibility of the co-sponsor and the relationship between the co-sponsor and the petitioner.

Some VJ members have gotten around this problem by showing that they had very good income in previous years to the low income year.

You can also change your petition to a K-3. Filing an I-864 from both you and joint-sponsor gives the CO's less leeway in treating your petition so subjectively, as they do a K-1. Bringing in a joint-sponsor on a K-1 petition at HCMC is a real #######-shoot, in addition to the #######-shoot that it is already.

The answer to your question is "it depends".

Each case is treated and review by the Consulate Officer individually based on the specific circumstance which relevant to the case.

I will try to make a lot of assumption when giving you the answer for your question here.

Assumed your annual gross-income: $16K plus or more. It meets the poverty guideline for K-1 to sponsor ONE (1) person.

Assumed you and her do not have any children of whom you need to sponsor and bring them here to the States.

Assumed your total net-worth is well beyond $20K or more. You can use house/car/stock/bonds/life-insurance/business/saving/checking accounts/valuables to present as your total net worth and substantiate your financial well-being and meet the Govt. poverty guideline. The keyword here is "GUIDELINE".

The C.O. is not only looking at your current financial being, but also looks at your pass and future potential earnings as well. For example: If you were a Medical student who spent the last 4 years in Med School, scrubing :) and earning next to nothing, got no incomes to show when asked vs. a someone who works at McDonald for the past 4 yrs making the minimum wage. Who do you think would have a better case, financially? The answer is BOTH, because "it depends", and that's the standard answer for a lot of questions when it comes to HCMC. So you need to look at this process in the grand scheme of thing: How do I present my "story/case" in the best possible way to tip the scale on my side!

Once you setup and put your finance in working order, and you still don't meet the minimum poverty guideline, then you may have to think of having a "CO-SPONSOR". Remember, HCMC does accept Co-sponsor, however they reserve the right to deny it when they are in doubt of frauds involved.

Good luck and I hope this helps....

Thanks,

chuck and kim

I don't see where a job offer would help! Anyone could have a job offer writen up by some friend's company's letterhead paper. In fact, if you need one, I can write you up with my company's letterhead paper! Meaningless to the consulate if you show up with one, you could and couldn't have accepted that offer. The bottomline is do what you can to meet the guideline, requirement, to prove your case and provide supporting evidence.

Remember, OP needs to make the ultimate decision based on what best represent his case to the Consulate. Co-sponsor or not. I still think having a high paying job, fat-wallet or solid career is just a part of the WHOLE BIG PICTURE. OP should not get completely locked up on this "MONEYTRAIN" :)

If OP can share more information with us, he will be better adviced. In the end, Co-sponsor is the last option if OP can't come up with enough incomes to meet the guideline. I think!

Good luck,

chuck and kim

Respectfully disagree!

Telecommute: Meaning, you do not have to be a residence of a State where your employer is located to be employed or to be offerred employment. One can be offerred of job regardless of his/her location, the employer can and may offer the job based on the line of work and qualification of the potential candidate. I work from home at least 2 days a week, in the office the other 3. My employer is based out in Europe. That's why, location/state is not the problem. I don't know how to explain this to you, but someone can chime in and help out please!

The point I'm trying to make here is: even with an offer letter from some employer in the same STATE of residence, it still won't be 100% guaranteed to have your visa approved. The lawyer you're retaining may be correct and knowing something that I do not know, however, I would ask the question: why does a job offer letter work? Just because isn't good enough, the OP probably needs solid supporting evidence, rather than some lawyer says: get a job offer letter and you're set!

Thank you,

chuck and kim
