Hi everyone,

I do not know if this is the write place to post this question. To make it short I will just shoot the question right away!

my wife is an American citizen, she is 22 year old and she is a student, income is $0. I am an engineer (computer Engineer) working in Germany and she is living with me.

for the AOS I asked one of my friends, he is an American citizen as well, to sponsor me, will this work?

I also have a job offer from a very reputable multi-national Company in the states, will this also help? We have a joint bank account also with good amount of money in it, in Germany (Euros). will this also help?

is there any chance of us getting denied because she has no income?

Thanks a million in advance!

Best regards,


P.S We are celebrating our 2nd anniversary Nov 5th, 2014 ;)

yes you can have a joint sponsor as long as they are domiciled in the USA.

Your job offer will not help.

However your assets will. But you need 3x the poverty guidelines in assets to count. The DOS prefers US based assets.

As long as your joint sponsor makes enough for his household size, including you, you will be fine.

About the assets, I guess you can have the money transferred to a US bank account, but if you will be using a joint sponsor, the fact that she doesn't have income wouldn't affect you.

Unfortunately, job offers don't help meet the AOS requirement either. Good luck.

This does not constitute legal advice.
