Fiance visa support..help!

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone..I'm just new here. My boyfriend for 6 years who is a US citizen wanted to file a fiance visa. He acquired his US citizenship through his father who is an american navy. He stayed here in the Philippines for 23 years of his life and last Feb.12,2007 he finally went in US. He is currently looking for work. As I have mentioned earlier, he is planning to apply for a Fiance visa. However, I am afraid that we might be denied because he just reached US and if ever he got a job it will reflect in his employee certificate that he has just been working for months. Do you think we still needed someone to sponsor me instead of him because of his current situation? Does he already need to submit the affidavit of support on his initial filing? Please help. Thanks.

Hi! I'm in a similar situation as far as financials go... I graduated from college in December and spent the past few months visiting my fiance in Tanznania. So now I'm looking for a job. From what I gathered from searching around here and posting questions, the embassy is MOST concerned with your current and future financial situations, not your past. So if you can file now and get employed now, and have bank records showing you deposit a lot of money until your interview, you should be okay (from what other people say).

I'm still nervous, and I think I'll find a co-sponsor just for peace of mind.

Good luck!

rayne_4,

He does not need to submit financial information for sponsorship with his I-129f petition. That will need to be submitted to the consulate when you have your visa interview.

It would be prudent of you and your fiance to have him wait until he does have sufficient income to support the both of you. Whether or not you will need someone else to sponsor you for your visa, as a practical matter you are going to need money to live on when you come to the USA.

There's a difference between a sponsor signing an offer to provide support and the sponsor actually spending their money to support someone else's bride. A difference that the US consulate in the Philippines is infamous for recognizing.
