Unemployed but with lots of cash?

Hello hello :)  Bless everyone who is information sharing on this site-- its so helpful! Hoping someone knows the answer to my question.  I want to move home to the US with my British fiancé.  I will obviously have to change jobs to move countries, but I know CURRENT income is needed from other posts on this website.  I can probably get my parents to co-sponsor him, but the question I have is, if I have a certain level of liquid assets (cash), would that mean I no longer need a cosponsor?  I don't have a million dollars, but if I did, would I still need a cosponsor??? Surely not?

I believe you have to have at least 3 times the amount needed in the poverty guidelines and the assets should be in your possession for like a year or so (proven with bank statements and such). On top of that it’s at discretion of the officer at time of interview.

 

take a look at the financial support forms instructions and there should be more information. It’s the i134 for k1 and i864 for aos from k1 and cr1/ir1

Are you both living in the UK right now?

Cash works for a K1 in London. The unknown is how much will convince the officer. 

3x the poverty level for sure, but half that would probably work too for the visa. You'll need a job or 3x when it comes time for adjustment of status.

Honestly if you can do DCF, you should.  It's almost ridiculous to do the K1 visa and AOS when you both live in an Direct Consular Filing country.   Marry there and file directly for the CR1 visa with the US embassy in London.

I think it's 4x cash, that you're short for poverty line. Regardless, if you're short by a thousand, have $4000 in cash and so on. Some embassies consider 125% rather than 100% because you'll have to adjust status soon anyway.
