Hi everyone!

My fiancé and I are currently waiting to get an interview for our visa and I am in the process of trying to get all the documents to gather to send to him, however, I am having issues with my affidavit of support. I have 3 years of steady income-same employer that meets the financial requirement and I have the necessary employment letter, tax documents and tax transcripts. I currently live with my family and I am working part time while doing an accelerated program full time. My last paystub from my previous job was in the middle of September. With Ghana embassy I'm hoping to get an interview by December or January, but I was wondering should I only let my fiancé just take the income from January-September to the interview or should I do the whole co-sponsor route? I was also unsure of what the co-sponsor required documents would entail. Is it just the affidavit, tax transcripts, tax documents and employment letter just like myself? I would appreciate any help with this. Thanks in advance!

If you meet the income requirement and have had steady income for the past 3 yrs which all meet the income requirement then you dont need a co-sponsor.

However, if you have a co-sponsor available, I would suggest filing that out and let your fiance take to the embassy as a back up. If they don't ask for co-sponsor then there's nothing to lose. But if they ask and he doesn't have it, that will add another 30 days for another interview to submit.

Good luck to you!

It sounds like your current and ongoing income is below the poverty line? If so, you need a co-sponsor. it is current income that counts the most, not past salary.
