Hello all! 

A little background info-


I am a US Citizen petitioning my Dominican husband (CR1). We are still awaiting out NOA2 (fingers crossed).


My question is regarding the financial form I-864 and moving abroad. 


I made enough money last year to not need a joint sponsor for my I-864, but want to move to the Dominican Rep to be with my spouse until he is approved and I can always fly back to the US to mail docs or whatever if I needed to.

My questions are: can I live abroad with my spouse during the process? If so, what implications would it have on the financial part? 

Would the embassy have an issue with me not having steady income in the US? (My employer said I could come back to my job after the visa process)

If I can, should I use a joint sponsor with my I-864 even though I made enough money last year just to prove that I have financial support in the US? 




Thank You! :)

Yes, you not having current income will be an issue. You will also have to be sure to keep domicile (place of residence) in US.
