NOA 2 Received, but currently unemployed.

Hi Everybody.

Thank you for your attention on this topic.

As the title says, my fiance and me received the NOA2 for our K1 petition a month ago, just during the time I was laid off at my previous position. Does anyone knows if in order to proceed with the process and complete all the neccesary forms (e.g providing the I-134 affidavit of support form) I do need to be employed? Also, is there a time limit if I can't currently proceed with the next steps? Can my petition get disapproved after certain amoun of time?

Thank you for your help!

Yes and no. You don't need to be employed, but you do need to have income above the poverty level up until the time AOS is approved. Therefore, if you are unemployed and have no other income that can let you meet the requirements, you will need a joint sponsor.

The K1 is tricky because some consulates don't seem to accept joint sponsors for the K1, so you would need to know if your consulate is ok with that. The joint sponsor will need to make 125% of the poverty level for his household, without combining income with you.

If you cannot get a joint sponsor, the visa will be denied under public charge grounds.


This does not constitute legal advice.

Yes or you need a cosponsor.

Yes

Thank you both. By the way, can anyone give me details on the time limit if I opt not to use a cosponsor and get a job first? How long do I have in order to continue the process?

Current income is key. As long as you can prove you have a job at the required annual income level at the time of the interview is all you need.
