Affadavit of Support & The Overseas worker

Hello to all,

I am plannning to begin a K1 fiancee petition, and although I know I don't have to worry about the Affadavit of Supprt JUST yet, I'm thinking ahead.

I work as a US military contractor in the Middle East. My income is certainly above the 125% of poverty level, and I own a home in the States. My intention is to seek employment back home, return to the US before the visa is finished, and prepare things at home for my new bride. One option is to transfer within my company to an office Stateside.

My question is: will the fact that my income is earned overses be an issue in considering my case? Or, should I plan on returning to the States and securing employment there before starting?

Thanks in advance, and best wishes to all on their own journies!

Rincewind,

You ask a good quetion.

At the time your fiancee submits your financial support information to the consulate, which at most if not all consulates is at the visa interview, you will want to be showing a reliable income within the USA. Or, in the event that the timing works out such that you are still working overseas, documentation from your company that it will be transferring you back to a position in the USA.

You do not want to be between jobs when you fiancee has her interview, unless you have a close friend or relative you can call on to sponsor your fiancee's visa.
