Hello all,

My husband (petitioner) is sponsoring me for visa IR1 he currently got laid off from his company as the company is shutting down. We got Interview letter already and it’s hard to find a job he’ll be accompanying me to the interview. And his last three year income were above 40k

But the question is will we get 221g for he not working? Shall i carry co-sponsor affidavit to avoid any such circumstances?

kindly letme know anything please

If the embassy finds out your sponsor is longer employed, you will get asked for co-sponsor. Better be prepared.

I’m sorry What? 
 

Your topic was moved to the correct forum.

 

If you are asked about where your spouse works, answer truthfully.  If not asked, no worries.  If asked, the truth will require a "joint sponsor" with applicable I-864 (and if joint sponsor married, an I-864a from spouse) and all required supporting documentation.

My husband’s 2019 salary was 76000.00 and 2018 was 56000.00 he’s been working successfully but due to company was getting shut down unfortunately he got laid off right before the interview! And he decided to accompany me to the embassy  Is there any way we won’t get 221g? Please let us know

Hi no one can tell you if you will get 221g. My husband was not working when he petitioned  4 of us. Our 3 children and I, so we needed a joint sponsor. We got an 221g to get a joint sponsor. We did and within two weeks  we got our passport. 
 

I really think they also look at your potential to make money when you come here. I had a career in government and had BA so it worked out. 
Let us know.

Maybe he should be looking for a job?

 Yes you can have a qualified JOINT sponsor lined up to avoid a 221g.  It doesn't matter at this point how much your husband made previously.  His current income is ZERO.

Ohh i see and what about the unemployment benefits he’s getting? He’s getting  around 2000 monthly is it worth it?

Okay yes we are taking a joint sponsor in the interview his sister is working with great salary ! But I thought his unemployment income may suffice

Agreed that doesn’t matter take the joint sponsor document with you. You might still get a 221g so they can review the documents but listen If your marriage is real and you have nothing to hide it will be ok. 221g is not so bad for everyone. Like I said once we provided our joint sponsor documents we were good to go. Go to your interview and have faith. Good Luck🤛🏽

Be honest at interview. Just hope they don't ask about your husband work. if they do, (99% they will)  be ready to have joint-sponsor form signed.  read about your consular office, if he can accompany you at interview. most likely, no, you will be alone at interview. be ready for it
