Using Income & Savings?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi! A little backstory, I am from the US and he is from Brazil. I currently make below the current UCIS income requirement for my state. There's a chance it might change in the future but it isn't set in stone yet, so I am just going to plan for it as if it'll stay the same. Would it be possible to use a bit of my savings? I keep seeing mixed information about how it's supposedly the difference between my current income and the income requirement x5. In others, it says x3. Or could it possibly be just the difference between my income and the requirement? Which one would it be?


I do not have anyone that can co-sponsor me so I am lost of what to do. If the amount I need saved is x5, the amount would end up being too large. What would you guys do in a situation like this?

Assuming you are applying for a K1 visa 


Form I-864P has information regarding the poverty guidelines. (https://www.uscis.gov/i-864p


You would add your income and your assets (x5) together.  (see 'if you can't meet the minimum income requirements' https://www.uscis.gov/greencard/affidavit-support
