Should I move?

5 posts in this topic

Filed: IR-1/CR-1 Visa Country: Morocco

So, I have been living with my family for the past 6 months in order to save money. I recently got a promotion at work and moving out wouldn't be a problem. However, I hate living alone and my husband I are just now at the beginning of our visa journey. We just received our NOA1 a couple of days ago. I don't want the fact that I live with my family to be detrimental to our application. Does anyone know if they look at living with your family as a negative thing? I would prefer to wait to relocate after we have gotten a lot further in our journey, unless I have to move sooner. I appreciate anyone's thoughts on this :)

They don't care if you live with family. What they care about is your income and ability to show the beneficiary wont become public charge.

Your I-129f was approved in 5 days from your NOA1 date.

I actually stayed with my family as long as I have just because I didn't want to move during the process, needed help with my son, and wanted to save money. Inky is right, as long as you can prove income, living with family shouldn't do anything to your case.

Never give up on anything God has told you to believe for; never quit doing anything He has clearly shown you to do. Your diligence will pay off with a blessing from God." -Joyce Meyers

Dont know your personal info enough to answer if you should...but knowing how my husband is and the culture...I assume your husband would definitely feel calmer if u would stay family until you both could be together...plus you probably could save up money for the future.

Never heard of them questioning about living at home. Or it making an issue.

Congratulations on your marriage and your upcoming Visa journey!! :star:
