Adding this to the long list of absurd immigration myths we hear. Fortunately, this isn't even close to the worse we have heard.

YOu can still live at home with parents, it don't really matter your living status for the most part.

Countless people file K1 successfully as a renter, roommate, etc. Including me - I'm a renter, and have yet to own a home, and we had no problems. The main concern, as the petitioner (US citizen) with K1, is your ability to financially "vouch" for your applicant/beneficiary, and if you do not meet those income requirements, that you have a someone willing to co-sponsor you who does. And they don't necessarily have to be a home owner, either. :) 


Håll ut, y'all.
