Has anyone been denied because of a lack of income?

Being denied at the interview because of lack of income would only happen to the uninformed.

As a member of this site, you should already know that if the USC meets or exceeds 125% of the poverty limit, then there shouldn't be a problem.

I want to know what happens if at the interview you are denied because of a lack of income. What can you do to rectify it? Can you then add a co-sponser? Has anyone already had this happen?

You might consider getting a job.


I finally got rid of the never ending money drain. I called the plumber, and got the problem fixed. I wish her the best.

Avoid the problem altogether and get a cosponsor if you do not fullfil the income requirements. If you already know you would be able to get one after the interview and possible denial, why not go ahead and get one now and save yourself the trouble?

One of my friends that got the K-1 visa, had her visa "denied" in the interview because of the income thing! She thought her fiance's income was enough, but it wasn't and in the day of the interview they told her to find a sponsor and to come back few days later for a new interview... Then, her fiance got a sponsor and she did the new interview and finally got the visa...

But yes! As long as you already know about this risk and are not sure whether your income is enough or not, find a sponsor in order to avoid having to wait even more... I already know I'll need one! hehe ;)

Hugs!

Come on guys. This isn't helping. I AM reading this site... often, as a matter of fact.

We are in an unusal situation, that would take a while to explain. I have a job, but as i live in Canada I would have to quit to go to the US.

I do have a sponser lined up already, and we have a letter from his work. We meet income requiremnets... but We have planned the wedding for June, and I want to know what happens IF we are denied for unusal circumstances regarding income.

I know that some people have been denied for income. Can someone please tell me what happened after they were denied? I jusst want to know- from a worse case senario, what happens after that? Will we have time to fix it before the wedding?

Well, if you have a cosponsor lined up that meets the requirments I can't see how you would be denied, but if there are special circumstances we can't answer your question beyond that unless you explain them.

I dunno about what happens if you get denied though, but it looks like someone else said they were able to get a cosponsor and come back. I don't know if this applies to your embassy though, why don't you call them and ask them? That would be the best place to start.

Luckily, Vancouver and Montreal are not as strict as say the Philipines. Even being just a little bit over is sufficient for them from what I have read on here. Saying that, I'm not sure what the 'magic' amount is as the I-134 does not have a minimum $ requirement, unlike the I-864 which follows the poverty guidelines.

If there was a denial you would be able to submit your co-sponsor forms to rectify it, it would delay your Visa issuance but you wouldn't be completely denied.

I'm confused, and I think the OP is too, on this thread. I know that a sponsor has to be domiciled in the United States, so if the fiance/e is currently in the non-USC's country of residency/citizenship (or anywhere, really, except the States), the USC will have to get a joint sponsor for the non-USC regardless of income level, yes?
