Another AOS question...

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I know this forum is always flooded with repeat questions so I apologize in advance, but I have another question about the adjustment of status/financial requirements....

 

I am curious at what moment exactly is it necessary to proove my  financial ability to support my wife?

Is it based entirely on the documents sent in the packet or is it something confirmed at a future interview perhaps ?

 

I am asking because I want to take 3 weeks off to pick my fiancé up, get married and have a honeymoon trip. The thing that has me worried is that I would have to resign my job in order to have that time. 

 

That would leave me a short order of time to find another job to provide for the 125% poverty requirement.  It’s seems like a gamble a bit because jobs don’t just fall out the sky when we need them. 

 

Any insight would be appreciated. Thx.

I would find a joint sponsor......the interviewer will look at totality of your financial situation.......I would find a joint sponsor with stable and sufficient finances.

You can get a co-sponsor.

Is there risk associated with a co sponsor? Do those things affect the decisions of the consolate officers? I considered that and asked a friend if he would be willing to do that for me if needed. Is it possible that it could complicate being approved?

Manila most likely will not accept any co sponsor who is not an immediate relative 


YMMV

After marriage you file for Adjustment of Status .. the bulk of the requirement is financial.   

 

I would postpone the fun and address the obligation first.    Fiancee may have to fly alone -

True. Be practical in your moves. I flew by myself coming here in the US and I made it well. My husband is a business owner and he can't just leave his business easily. 

You'll be able to save some money if you'll have your fiance fly by herself. Tell her to follow instructions in the airports she'll have a layover. She's an adult, no way she can't do it.

Also with your honeymoon, don't be too lavish. You have around 1250 dollars( this may not be the exact amount) to pay for her process for adjustment of status. So be money wise. Quitting your job is not an option this time.
