Any K1 approvals for petitioner on permanent disability but with co-sponsor?

Recommended Posts

I'm new here so I hope I'm doing this right.

I am disabled and on RSDI "permanent" government disability. I do not make enough to qualify for the 125% threshold, but I have a co-sponsor who does.

I read here http://www.visajourney.com/content/support that "an actual case has been documented wherein a fiance visa was denied because the petitioning fiance was on government benefits and would not be working, even though the US fiance had two co-sponsors."

This worries me. So I was wondering if anyone has actual experience obtaining a K1 visa when "permanently" disabled, using a co-sponsor.

It is especially frustrating to me because even though I know it's inadmissible my fiance has an income of his own (from a pension) that he will continue to collect when he lives here. It's frustrating that the process is completely blind to the fact that he can support himself.

But again my question is... Any disabled, co-sponsored approvals? Just to put my mind at ease.

I've seen several cases on here that got approved, and you are from Europe, which tends to be "easy" to get approvals. There are sometimes questions asked about why the petitioner wants to marry someone from abroad, to ensure they are not bringing in a nurse for themselves via marriage, but I don;t think you will have major problems.
