Need help! Fiancé lost his job.

I'm posting this for my gay cousin.

His fiancé lost his job couple of months ago and he still doesn't have a job until now. They are so worried because his interview is coming up pretty soon.

What are the requirements for the interview?

Why do you have to qualify him as a gay cousin? His sexuality is completely irrelevant here. If the petitioner already submitted his tax returns and W-2 for last year, his joblessness affects little now unless he can't afford to pay for the beneficiary to come to the US and then to adjust status. When the beneficiary adjusts status, he'll need an affidavit of support. If the petitioner - the one who lost his job - can't prove to the government using the poverty guidelines of 125% for all household members, the beneficiary will need a co-sponsor. The petitioner better find some kind of job, even a minimum wage job, or a side hustle like tutoring, to start making income because the K-1 process isn't cheap. If necessary, they can delay the interview until the petitioner has a job again, is making more money, and can provide an employment letter.

The petitioner has to prove at the interview that he/ she has sufficient current income or assets to support the beneficiary. If he/ she isn't working at the moment of the interview, it's still possible to show assets or get a sponsor. The affidavit of support presented at the interview should be an updated version and not only the taxes will be taken into consideration but current income as well. Depending on the embassy, beneficiarys assets can also be taken into consideration.

Which of the two is the USC? If the one that lost his job is the foreign beneficiary, then it doesn't matter at all. If it is the US citizen that lost his job, a co-sponsor may be needed.
