Yes, it is valid and counts as income for the affidavit of support. You need to check with your embassy since some doesn't accept co sponsors. If yours does, then go for it. Co sponsor can be anyone.

Incorrect. A cosponsor does not have to be an american citizen. A cosponsor could be a an LPR or US national. That said, the person must be domiciled in the US or one of its territories.

As for the OP: From what I understand the gi bill is educational assistance, so I'm not sure if all of it can be used since it's supposed to be used for school. I suppose if anything is left over after educational expense are met, you could use that amount.

Your best bet would be to use a joint sponsor (cosponsor, same thing). Since you are doing the K1 visa, not all consulates accept joint sponsors for the K1, but most of them do. You can start a thread or search through the Italian K1 threads and see for sure.

The joint sponsor must be a USC, national, or LPR, domiciled in the US, and have sufficient income by themselves.


This does not constitute legal advice.
