In Manila? Chances of approval with a co-sponsor are very slim. Get married and go for the CR-1 spousal visa, co-sponsors are allowed there.

What are the chances of getting approved? My fiance used to work, but he just lost his job and planning to start his new business. We have 3 cosponsors if needed. Has a valid 3 year Inome tax return. A house, a bank saving.

Current income is what matters most for the petitioner....If no current income then co-sponsor will be mandatory.

Using a co-sponsor for a k-1 visa is not always successful at the US embassy Manila.

If your fiancé has about $60,000 in liquid assets in the U.S., then he won't necessarily need a joint sponsor...depending on his household size of course.

Im outside philippines, and the embassy said they accept cosponsors. But im worried if it will work. Hes got a 71,000.00 ITR and w2 and almost 40,000.00 not including the cash and as well as the cosponsors meets the income requirements. Will there be a chance? He just got layed off and will be working on running his business and look for a job in the future.

And my fiance is living all by his self in his house

You could only use a maximum of 2 joint sponsors per petition

A joint sponsor may submit an Affidavit of Support to sponsor all or some of the family members if the primary sponsor does not meet the income requirements. A maximum of two joint sponsors per petition can be used. Each joint sponsor is only responsible for the applicant(s) listed on that joint sponsor’s Affidavit of Support. Important note: If a joint sponsor is used, the petitioning sponsor must submit Form I-864, not Form I-864EZ.

Please be reminded that USEM is a bit strict on the co-sponsorship and will evaluate on a case-to-case basis.

Good luck!

Forget last years tax return- if he does not earn now, it does not count.

From the I-864 instructions:

A joint sponsor must be able to meet the income requirements for all the persons he or she is sponsoring without combining resources with the petitioning sponsor or a second joint sponsor.

I-864 instructions.

OP...You can use one joint sponsor. I think you have a good chance for approval.

Does your fiancé have any unmarried children under 21 years old?

No he is single and never been married. If we will use his mom, what affidavit of support is needed?

If his dad and wife(fiances stepmom) what affidavit of support?

My fiances mom is living all by herself

Dad & wife and fiances sister have their own house

And my fiance have his own house.

He earned money this year though, he worked for 8 months plus 3 months additional payment. So basically he worked for almost a year. He prolly have the same income tax this year or a little less maybe.

This does not apply. Using 2 joint sponsors is for when someone is petitioning for more than one family member at once and you can have 2 joint sponsors that split up their sponsorship. They would each sponsor one or more of the family members.

Tahoma and Jay-Kay, I got this from I-864 FAQ

http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3183.html

Maybe I was just misunderstanding it. Thanks for confirmation.

My fiances mom is living all by herself

And my fiance have his own house.

My opinion:

Your fiancé should submit an I-864 and all of it's supporting documents. His joint sponsor should submit an I-864 and all of it's supporting documents.

He earned money this year though, he worked for 8 months plus 3 months additional payment. So basically he worked for almost a year. He prolly have the same income tax this year or a little less maybe.

The Consular Officer will look at your fiancé's income from 2011, and the CO will look at this year's income too, which your fiancé should provide. However, the CO will put the greatest weight on your fiancé's current sustained income. Even though he's still getting paid, and he can submit current paycheck stubs due to his severance, he still doesn't have an employer's letter. If you are asked to submit an employer's letter, you are going to have a problem. That's why he should prepare a joint sponsor and he should prepare proof of liquid assets.

Also, I strongly recommend, in a case like yours, that your fiancé attend your interview.

Opps sorry, I meant to multi-quote this one. Sucks no delete button here.
