Co-Sponsor

Hello everyone,

My dad will most likely be the co-sponsor for us. Does he have to be employed in the USA? He has his own business outside of the USA (He's a USA citizen and recently left his job in USA for the private business outside). Can he still be the co-sponsor? I understand that the reason for all of this is to prove that the alien fiance will not be a burden to USA. My father-in-law will provide my fiance with money before he leaves as well, and we are both planning on working once we're there. Will all this help to prove that he won't be a burden? Thanks guys!

NOPE...it's very doubtful. The co-sponsor should be EMPLOYED INSIDE THE USA....no exception!!!

Any reason why you cannot provide for your fiancé?

I mean I don't want to be mean OR anything. How can you build a family if you cannot provide? (if your the man/petitioner) To be a family man you should able to be a provider. Sorry but I’m just saying.

(put it this way your not only going to be burden in the USA...but ALSO for your own family)

My advice is to work 2jobs to start planning to have your own family!!

The longer it takes to happen the more you'll appreciate it when it does!

Incorrect information and your moral 2 cents. Awesome. Anyway, I myself would pay this post no mind. On topic however, I believe the following to be the requirements;

Be U.S. citizen or national or a permanent resident

Be at least 18 years of age

Be domiciled (live) in the United States

Meet all of the financial requirements of a sponsor

Goodluck OP

woohh. Calm down a bit! First off, I will be the wife NOT the husband!! And I am currently residing with my fiance in our country until he gets his visa and we'll both travel to USA. And for your info, I am employed here!! So I am not being lazy! Anyways, there's much better and respectful ways to deliver a message to someone!! And please don't jump into conclusions!

Anyways, thanks for trying to help.

this is INCORRECT. As long as the co sponsor is domiciled in the US and when he files taxes files foreign earned income he can be the co sponsor. I know for a fact it's true because it's true for my co sponsor. My husband just received his visa and did not have a problem, my co sponsor was accepted with flying colors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And who are you to pass judgement on this person? Seriously? Did you ever think that perhaps the OP is a student or a recent graduate? This forum is for people who need help on their journey. Grow up and keep your opinions to yourself.

Thank you so much for the reply. I appreciate it. Just a quick question, what if the co sponsor goes on my trips outside of the USA due to business trips? He does file tax forms and visits USA often. He has a bank account as well as a house and such in USA. Do you have any ideas??

Thank you so much. Do you by any chance know what the financial requirements of a sponsor are? Thanks a lot!

One more question...Does the co-sponsor have to be related to me by blood? For example, can it be a family friend or an extended family relative? Thank you!

Hey again :)

The following exert hopefully helps;

A joint sponsor is someone who is willing to accept legal responsibility for supporting your family member with you. A joint sponsor must meet all the same requirements as you, except the joint sponsor does not need to be related to the immigrant. The joint sponsor (or the joint sponsor and his or her household) must reach the 125% income requirement alone. You cannot combine your income with that of a joint sponsor to meet the income requirement.

And this is the link to the poverty guidelines;

Thank you sooo much for your help. I really really appreciate it.

one last question :D do you think we can use only assets to meet the requirements?

I mean, since we're both unemployed in the USA at the time, can we use the assets instead of using a co sponsor? Thanks a lot!

As long as the co sponsor is domiciled in the US and meets the minimum income requirements and can prove it you will be fine. The co sponsor needs to claim all foreign earned income on their federal tax returns. The co sponsor does not need to be related by blood.

No relationship is necessary. For I 134 it is the same requirements as you would have for 2 people.
