K1 fiance visa joint sponsor question

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm currently unemployed and wish to use a joint income sponsor.. However my fiance is from Phillipines, which doesn't accept joint sponsors unless married... So my question is... My fiance is currently working in Hong Kong as domestic helper... If we do k1 fiance while she is working there would I be able to use a joint income sponsor?   PS. If I posted this incorrectly I apologize.. My first time to post here.

Hong Kong is China and if she's current legally residing there, she can interview there.  I am unsure if China accepts co-sponsors for K1.  

There's more to the question than just "can I use a co-sponsor or not".  If you're unemployed how do you prepose to support your soon to be wife while she cant work for 6 months?  Does she understand she can't work? You dont need to answer those questions, they are there for YOU to think about.

You might want to also look at the possibility of marrying outside the US, so that your spouse would be able to immediately work upon arriving in the US via a CR-1......It's also less expensive in the long run........

Don't make the mistake that some do.......they put very little thought into the real financial and psychological impacts of spouse idleness.  Good luck....

I almost drove my husband bananas when I didn't work for a month... I can't imagine 6 months!  Moving to the USA already gave me depression...😨
