Affidavit of Support when living outside the US

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

After living for several years together in Belgium and recently getting married, we are planning to move to the US (to move back to the US for my husband).

We're getting ready to fill the I-130 form while collecting all other documents that will / may be requested down the road.

Our biggest issue is with the Affidavit of Support.

First of all, are we sure that it will be requested?

If it is, how to we show enough income / assets?

Since we don't have any income from the US, would bank accounts work? Could we show both our account balances?

Thank you very much for your support.

yes, everyone does the affidavit of support. You can read up on the requirements in the guides, wiki, as well as in the actual instructions for the form (I-864)

The best way to help is to defer you to these links -

Affidavit of support is always required. Assets and bank accounts can work, and you can also try to find a co-sponsor.

Check out this page: http://www.visajourney.com/content/support

And here's a thread about it for people who've gone that route: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/284641-i-134-affidavit-of-support-assets-only/

Best of luck to you!

Hi,

Reading your post made my day!

A short introduction ...

I am living in Belgium and married to a USC (my wife) who joined me here back in 2010 and we got married the same year (in BE). We just got a baby and we are looking forward to move to US (IR-1/CR-1 Visa).

I went through all the available resources regarding forms and instructions to consider in order to get ready for this process and proceed with a maximum of efficiency.

Just like you, I am worrying about this Affidavit of support and the fact that my wife does not fulfill the criteria related to the "Domicile in US" ... If this is not too much, I would like to know how did you manage to go through that step. If I am not wrong, you are now in US what means that it ended up positively (congratulations!).

Thanks for your support !
