Timeline

I have been living over seas with my fiancee for the past 18 months, My first year in Chile I did not work, however this year i have been working since march. My mother will be my co-sponsor and she has no problem with the poverty line.

At the moment we are waiting for the NOA2 letter and letter from NVC.

We are preparing everything for her interview, and I have a question regarding Affidavit of Support.

Do i need to bring a letter from my employer in Chile? what other documents should we submit... Any ideas??? My employer does not know im leaving yet... and i did not want to tell them till everything is ready and my fiance has a visa...

Any advice?

I'm not sure how it works when you are overseas, but I think you need to reestablish your domicile in the US in order to serve as a sponsor.

Yeah, because I think the income has to remain the same when you move to the US and since it's a job in Chile it wouldn't be. Hopefully someone who knows about filing abroad will post soon about the requirements you need to meet. Good luck.

If talking to your employer could jeopardize your employment in Chile, then don't. What the embassy will really want to see is your mom's financial information. From experience at the Santiago embassy, my dad was the co-sponsor and my fiancée only brought his tax returns from 2012 and that's it (also biographic page from passport to prove U.S. citizenship!). Santiago is not a difficult embassy at all, very relaxed, just have the right paperwork and you'll be fine (:

Let us know if you have anymore questions about the embassy in Santiago!

Also, we were in a similar situation to you as I was living in Chile with my fiancée during the NVC stage... from Chile you can contact the NVC via Skype credits, you have to pay some money but it's worth it. The number is (603) 334-0700. There is email too but it takes forever! With calling the NVC, you will be on hold for maybe up to an hour or more but once you reach someone they can tell you important information such as your case number and also if your petition has been sent to Santiago.

Once you get your case number from the NVC you can schedule the medical (we did it with Dr. Grossman at metro Manquehue) and you can also email the embassy to see if they received your petition. Once they have your petition your fiancée can go into the embassy on Wednesdays from 8:30-10:30 and get her interview date + packets 3 & 4.

I know this is totally off topic lol but I hope this helps for your current stage in the process!
