Filed: K-1 Visa Country: United Kingdom
Timeline

I've got over $300,000 in inherited assets [cash, stocks, bonds, etc.]. I live off the interest income, which is about 1,000 +/- a month. Were these assets converted into straight cash, it would be way over 50% of the value on my monthly statements. I'm pursuing freelance writing, but have not had a paying job yet.

Now, I don't come up to the poverty line with my income, but since I have so much in assets, will that make up the difference? Will I need a co-sponsor?

When it comes to a co-sponsor, does it have to be someone within the United States? I don't understand why they do not take into account assistance from the fiance's side of the family, or allow written affidavits from their side. I don't get it.

My fiance's mother has more than enough to help support him and intends to, there's no chance he will become a public charge. Her boyfriend would readily be willing to be a co-sponsor, but he lives in the United Kingdom. I don't see why they don't seem to take this into account.

Any commentary or help is [as always] greatly appreciated.

TheZilla, It is up to the USC (petitioner) to prove he/she can support their foreign fiance/fincee with the affidavit of support. If he alone does not meet the poverty line requirements and his mother is willing to co-sponsor, that is the best bet. If I understand the co-sponsor requirements correctly, they have to be a USC. Good luck, Payato
