Since she is not married before she should put SINGLE on the application. The 2 kids wont affect the visa processing as long as she met the income requirements needed. Please take note that the info below is for 2016, not sure when they will update it for 2017. She may need a sponsor if she failed to meet the required income. Good luck. 




The 2016 poverty guidelines are available online. The requirement for the affidavit of support is 125 percent of the poverty line guidelines. These figures are set out below.

You will likely need a joint sponsor. The 2016 guidelines (noted above) require a minimum of $36,450/year (assuming she's not in AK/HI). This is likely to go up for 2017. Even then, the CO might think she is a risk for becoming a public charge even if the bare minimum is met. It's up to their discretion based on the totality of the evidence. Egypt is a pretty strict embassy from what I've read, too. Having a joint sponsor ready would be to your benefit.


If she is single, then she needs to put single on the forms. Generally, interpret the forms literally and as of the time you file them. The kids shouldn't help/hurt the petition or visa request (other than the financial obligation of having them added to the household, as noted above).
