hi everyone! i hope i'll get clear answers with my question.

i am the petitioner, i just have returned here in the US after being gone for so long. i do not have any ITR because i have been staying in the Philippines and by that time i was still a minor and was still a student. by that being said, i am not financially stable. i do not make enough. so i need, i badly need a co- sponsor. i do not have relatives here in the US which is close to me. well except my mom, but my mom was not been able to make enough for the past years because she got sick and she was one of those who got affected by the recision. so then, my fiancé's aunt who is from hawaii, offered a little help. she offered to be our co-sponsor. since she's financially stable and has been in her work for a long long time. the problem is i am in CAlifornia, so my Fiancé intend to live here also. so we were thinking if it is possible to use a co sponsor who is from a different state.

i have just sent the packet earlier today. and i was thinking lately that i think i am going to move out of state after my Fiancé arrive (hopefully). i am planning to move in Hawaii. because i am applying for nclex rn there. since it is much easier there than here in CAlifornia. and because my fiancé's auntie is there, who's gonna help me or us and who is gonna be our co- sponsor. but as for now i am looking for a 2nd job. so i could at least try to reach the poverty guidelines.

would that be okay?

or if its not, please do advise me in what to do.

thank you!

i am moving in hawaii right after my fiancé arrive here. first because the co sponsor (which is his auntie) is living in hawaii, {because i could not look for anyone who could be a co sponsor who live here in California). second is it is much easier to apply for NCLEX-RN in Hawaii when one is a foreign graduate than here in California. and i have heard that it is much easier to apply for an RN work there than here in California.

but anyhow, can i still use his aunt to be our co sponsor though she is living in a different state than i am the petitioner?

yes you can still use his aunt as your co sponsor. they do not have to live in the same state, yes you can move to Hawaii before or after your fiancé arrives. You will need to notify USCIS of your new address .

Hawaii is expensive place to live, but if you can live there that is good

Your co-sponsor can live anywhere in the US, it doesn't matter if they're close to you or not. Location does not matter (as long as it's in the US), but their finances do.

That said, if you move you just need to alert USCIS about your address change.

what docs shall be the documents to be presented in using a co sponsor, besides the ITR, W2, bank account and such which is related to it? shall the co sponsor provide a personal letter? stating that she is related with my fiancé (beneficary) and that she knows our relationship since we have started it, and have known me, though not personally yet because we have not seen eachother yet (my fiancé's aunt) and that she is willing to help my fiancé or us if ever we need help. please do help me to get through with this. because most of the people said that it would be really a red flag to use a co sponsor if the beneficiary is from the philippines. thank you!

Moving is not an issue, complete a change of address, form AR-11, online. http://www.uscis.gov/ar-11

Some bad advice been posted here, what is acceptable in Manila is not same as other embassies, or how it works with other types of visas is not the same as with K-1. As for using a co-sponsor with the K-1, K-1 visa it is very difficult to get a co-sponsor accepted at USEM, and when they do accept them they want the co-sponsor to a close relative of the PETITIONER (not beneficiary). Better to be married and file a spousal visa as any qualified co-sponsor will be accepted. Only a 50/50 chance of a qualified co-sponsor being accepted with the K-1 at USEM.

From data I could gather and past experiences I have read of with K-1 and co-sponsor, not being a close relative of the petitioner reduces the odds of being approved.

Now here is a little side note: Many times lately USEM is not asking for ANY support documents with the K-1... none.. zero.... nada... zilch. So it is possible to go through the whole visa application without having to provide the I-134 or anything. But this is not 100% of the time, so you still have a gamble there.

Best you can do is be informed, and prepared the best you can.

Co-sponsor needs to provide the same documents as the petition; I-134, most recent tax return and W-2. I suggest with a co-sponsor to have them also submit the I-864

What Hank said is oh so true. I have spent a lot of time in the Philippines, and he is exactly right. They do not accept co-sponsors very easily.

Hank is an expert, to a lot of people, on the Philippines, he is always right, he has helped me many times.

Listen to his words.
