affidavit of support-pregnancy

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I have a question about completing the affidavit of support.

I recently discovered my wife is now pregnant with twins. Do I need to add the twins to the affidavit of support? I believe I don't because they have not been born yet.  She is only 10 weeks pregnant at this point in time. But, I worry that the twins will be considered when my income is evaluated.


What do you think?

True they don't count until they are born, but if for some reason the processing time goes beyond her due date and they have been born at the time of her interview you might be asked to show that you can support a household of 4 as opposed to 2. Someone just posted today they were asked to provide a joint sponsor because he met the poverty guideline for 2 but not 3 and his wife had given birth to their first child at the time of the interview.

My experience, they dont count. I was pregnant before the interview and I postponed it till I gave birth. 7months later i did my interview, i informed the VO i gave birth so we have 2 kids, in case he wants the new AOS but he said he doesnt need it. Visa is approved.
