Affidavit of Support - Assets

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

my wife is a student and has no meaningful income. I am an successful entrepreneur and CEO, and have lots of assets, and also lots of cash assets. It is clearly written in the AoS instructions that

a) Assets of the Petitioner can be used


b) Assets of the Intending Immigrant.

I understand that we need about 20k per year, what would mean x 5 in assets, thus 100k are needed.

Now my questions:

1. Is it really no issue to use only assets?

2. Do the cash assets need to be on a bank account in the USA or can they be also in my home country Germany?

3. Is it better that she shows the assets or me? If I transfer 100k to her account, would that not be a red flag, like I paid her for the visa or other wired thing Officers may think....

4. If the money needs to be on an US account, how long before the interview must it be there? Interest rates in the US are lower currently than at my banks, thus having the money there would harm me and I am interested to keep it in Europe as long as possible. Any thoughts here?
