Affidavit of Support...starting early

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I'm visiting my fiancé this summer in June. We are expecting our NOA2 in late July/August.

I wanted to know if I can fill out my Affadavit of Support and bring my Employment proof letter/pay stubs with me to my fiancé in June so he is all prepared with those documents. I know my pay will increase in August (it is still well above poverty level now) and that will be noted in the employment letter. I will also keep mailing him my pay stubs as time passes.

Will my Affadavit of Support still be valid two months later? Even with a pay increase? My boss noted the August pay raise in his letter as well.

Yes I think so, my fiance filled his out start of Jan and my interview was close to the end of feb and they didn't comment on it. The very nature of the form needing to be signed with a "wet" signature means it has to be either sent from the US to the beneficiary or brought with them physically (as opposed to scanned, which is instant) so they cannot expect it to have been completed super recently prior to the interview. I think two months is fine :)

Actually I think it'll be close to around three months by the time of the interview. Thanks for the reply! That's why I wanted to bring it with me this summer with a "wet signature." I'm also going to pack in as much financial support documents as I can get my hands on. So that way there is no room for faults or delays if the officer asks for them :)

Also, do I have to send the Affadavit of Support to anyone/any agencies other than my fiancé brining my completed documents to the interview? Or will he just have the filled out copy, bring it to the interview, and that's it?

Just the beneficiary to take to the interview.
