Although Im K1, I actually made over 125% by a smidget last year which covers both K1 and AOS. But I felt having a cosponsor will be a safety net in case they want to pick on other issues between us because we definitely have a red flag which is age difference. My fiance's uncle can be a cosponsor. If its absolutely not necessary then do you think I should just use the uncle when my fiance gets here when we do the adjustment of status? In the meantime I have:


1. Small amount of stocks. I included a copy of certificate and the subordinate note and wrote in the amount of it for assets. I don’t have a statement from this particular company but I do know how much it’s worth. I hope that’s enough.


2. All they require from my Embassy is 1 year tax returns or transcript. I’m providing transcript since I'm 1099 last year and usually too many pages.


3. This year I’m 1099 and W-2 so I included a letter from my 1099 employer, 1099 copy, two paychecks stubs from my current W2 job (state of CA and it's hell getting them to provide s letter), one stub from my 1099 commissioned job, the stock certificate and subordinate note. I-134 is crisp. I hope there’s nothing else I need.


What do you guys think? Add co-sponsor? Leave him out and use him for AOS?

The Adjudicating Officer has wide discretion in all aspects of the visa process.  If he thinks that the beneficiary has a good chance of becoming dependent on the gov't they can refuse the visa.  And yes, they know you will need to AOS in a few months.


If you barely make the income limit, and are a 1099 employee (ie self employed,  or not a steady income) and don't have a long employment record that could show a pattern of financial instability.


I would err and the side of showing the strongest financial picture as possible, starting with the I-134.
