I filed for the k1 visa for my fiancé (Morocco) and we are patiently waiting ,but I am a bit nervous regarding my income . In 2019 ,I made about 25,800/ household 2 and  I believe you have to make about $21,550. Will I need a joint sponsor even if I meet the requirement ? I think it’s only required when you don’t meet the income requirement. Please correct me if I’m wrong.  Thank you !

Remember that the "requirement" is only the minimum for consideration.  The Consulate Officer has broad discretion when looking at the entire financial situation. 

 

Current income is king, not what was filed on past tax returns.

Current Weekly Income x 52 = Current Annual Income

Current Pay Period Income x Number of Pay Periods Per Year = Current Annual Income

Current Monthly Income x 12 = Current Annual Income

Filed: Citizen (apr) Country: Morocco

for K1 and 2 persons   it is $17,240 100%

for AOS (or CR1 it is $21,550 125%

 

 

Same answer as yesterday

The CO has the right to deny or issue a visa based on the "totality of circumstances"

you need to have met and spend quality time together (very important in the Casa embassy) not just a 2 week visit 

you need to know the cost of providing health care insurance for him if he is granted a visa as he will not be able to work till he gets EAD

The CO will ask about future plans (does he intend to work or study in the US)

the CO will look closely at the Moroccans education and work history to see if able to find suitable job here

the income is only a part of this process and you met that with The over $25,000

but a lot depends on the validity of the relationship,  his education,  his work experience,  his family and their approval and the amount of time you have spent together 

and K1 in Casa is hard to get,  so be prepared to go and marry if you have to

info to marry can be found on US embassy site

 

 

BTW the cost of EADAOS and AP is increasing after October 1st to over $2000 for the 3 applications

 

Best to you both
