Advice about AOS

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

My spouse( beneficiary) and I used a joint sponsor for our case because at the time,  i was visiting my spouse oversees and i had quit my job before visiting. I will be returning back to the US soon, prior to my spouses visa interview, to avoid any possible issues regarding domicile but my question is regarding the AOS. I would like to start working again once i am back in the US as we still have a few months before the interview, but if i did so and my income were enough to support my spouse, would that delay our case at the interview? I know we would need to fill out a new AOS with my info and that would need to be presented at the interview, but my worry is that updating the financial sponsor to myself would that put us in AP if they required us to upload that AOS ( we would be in Islamabad consulate).

 

If anyone has experiance with this or similar changes in the financial sponsor at the interview, please share. If it will cause a delay, i would rather wait to get employment until after the interview has been completed successfully since this process has already been so slow...

If your Joint Sponsor makes enough to cover the principal immigrant(s) and themselves, then it’s more than enough.

 

The petitioner MUST fill out an I-864 regardless of income. If you and/or your spouse has savings, these can be included in the I-864. If you get a job in the US it won’t effect the case at all. Consular officers review paperwork they get, they don’t go looking if you got a job between the time you filed the I-864 and the interview/visa issuance. 
 

in terms of domicile, you could technically stay with your spouse until visa issuance if you have a valid joint sponsor. Write a statement that you will reestablish your domicile, explain your plans of travel and moving and you should be fine with intent to reestablish domicile.

Okay, good to know that I wouldn't have to go through all that. Even with my employment, i would still make less than my joint sponsor anyways.

 

As far as the domicile, it has been more than 6 months that i have been out of the US 😕 i have heard of Cases at this particular embassy where they make the petitioner go back to the US to establish domicile (at time of interview) and resend proofs if they have been living abroad for an extended time. But i did not know you could write them a letter to prove the stay is temporary. I will certainly look into that as thats an option.

 

Thank you!!

A letter for intent for domicile would be considered. The CO may or may not determine it is sufficient.

Other evidences of intent can be included as well.

Highly suggest you put down your country and use your country portal.  Some consulates or embassies are pickier than others in regards to income and domicile and generally your fellow portal members can be the most helpful with this.
