Hey I was just wondering if as a U.K. citizen I have some leeway when it comes to immigration to the US, given the relationship between the 2 nations. 
 

I also have a few questions regarding the immigration process:

 

When will my sponsor/fiancé be required to submit her employment information/taxes) during I-129F or later on? I ask this because she has only just got a job on the books to help with immigration so her taxes wouldn’t be eligible until next year.

 

Also how much of the weight can a joint sponsor take? Is there a certain income the main sponsor has to make in order for things to go through accordingly?
 

Will (if) Joe Biden‘s election effect immigration? He has promised to make some promising changes to immigration and US border policies.

 

Thanks any replies are welcomed and appreciated.

 

 

 


 

 

Another question, is a copy of the I-129F forms and payment really necessary? Seems a little excessive.

No special treatment 

 

Financial information at visa interview 

 

Joint sponsorship is not a risk sharing scenario.   Any sponsor can be liable for 100% if the government so chooses to pursue 

 

Fee payment to the USCIS is absolutely required if you want them to process. 


YMMV

Every politician promises to make immigration changes / most talk about the illegal immigrants and have been doing this for 20 or  30 years'/ they don't seem to be concerned about the legal immigration

but immigration (permanent laws and rules) must be done by Congress as they are in control of Department of Homeland Security / EO's are only temporary 

As noted even the promised wall between us and Mexico is not happening as i think many of the ones in charge of the money realized it wouldn't stop illegals (who can build a higher ladder or tunnel under as in the past or come by water) and that last part is only my opinion

 

Who is on Senate Homeland Security Committee?
Total Members: 10
Majority Members ( 6 ) Minority Members ( 4 )
Portman, Rob (OH), Chairman Paul, Rand (KY) Lankford, James (OK) Romney, Mitt (UT) Hawley, Josh (MO) Johnson, Ron (WI), Ex Officio Carper, Thomas R. (DE), Ranking Member Hassan, Margaret Wood (NH) Harris, Kamala D. (CA) Rosen, Jacky (NV)

In the rules all countries are treated the same. In reality immigrating from a "low risk" country (where fraud is traditionally low) is a little easier as the amount of evidence you'll have to provide to show a genuine relationship is probably a little lower. This applies for all low risk countries - EU, Australia, NZ etc. But don't let this fool you into thinking that you'll get a free pass - red flags (eg big age difference, educational difference etc) can still prove a hurdle, as can other issues like criminal convictions. What kind of leeway were you hoping to see?
 

Also, when it comes to citizenship there is a language test - being a native English speaker obviously makes that much easier.

Sorry I was reading the immigration guide and it states a complete replica of the forms and payment is required.

 

If you think this fee this excessive ,  wait till you AOS after marriage,  this is the most expensive way to go

That is not what I’m saying. I’m well aware of the costs including naturalisation. But they state a complete copy of the I-129F is required, including the money cheque of $535.

So going more into employment, since she has only recently been put on the books and won’t be able to acquire tax certificate what would suffice?
 

Will they need employment history from me? I am currently unemployed, prior to COVID-19 I was a self employed brand ambassador.
 

There is also a 11 year gap between the 2 of us, I am 24 and she is 35. Will they see this as a problem? The relationship is genuine and we got engaged in Cancun, Mexico last month.

Btw, I recommend keeping copies of every immigration-related document, including the petition and payment.
