My fiancé (the petitioner) quit her job last year do to covid and is now working part time , which is something like 13k/15k a year with tips . is it a bad idea to go for a k1 even tho her parents are willing to co-sponsor and they make well above the minimum requirement?  (they are willing to provide accommodations at their place too)  would that cause a K1 denial ? its the Tunisia embassy btw .

she probably should try for a second job or a full time one to help your chances

a qualified joint sponsor helps but do they understand the meaning of the AOS support agreement

issues with a K1 are:

1.  you can not work for a considerable length of time after POE 

2.  the expense of adjustment for EAD , AP and AOS is $1225 and can she afford to file and pay this fee?

3.  have you met in person within last 2 years?

4.  age differences between the 2 of u

5.  your education

6. your work experience

7.  does your Tunisian family approve of the relationship?

8.  how many trips to be with you and how much time you have spent together

9.  are you willing to wait a year to interview as K1 is taking at least that long now?

 

 

for your embassy it would be best to marry and file CR1 for spouse but with her income she probably can't return soon  so have you thought to work and buy her a ticket to come and marry as marriage in Tunisia does not take long / only about 3 days

 

incha allah 

all happens in God's time not ours

4: I'm 27 and she is 22
5: I have a bachelor's degree and she has a vocational school one

6: i've been doing Aerospatial mechanical engineering for the past 6 years

7: both our families fully support us , we had an engagement ceremony among my family and her mother was present too 
8: as i said 1 , for 2 weeks , just covid things xD

All this sounds like a successful visa

living here in the US now,  we see signs everywhere saying "taking applications",  "now hiring" ,  "apply inside"  " help wanted"

it is not out of reach to find a full time or another part time job 

and i would encourage her to do so if she joins our group

when the USC joins they can follow the guides above and do it without a lawyer 

the USC needs to fully understand the process and be able to explain it to the joint sponsor

Typically not a reason,  but a k1 can be a difficult visa in Tunis normally.  

YMMV

been seeing alot of k1 visa denied using joint-sponsor posts in here and it got us paranoid... 
as for the difficult part , we are engaged here in the presnce of my family and her mom , 5 years age gap , we talk daily and she is visiting again before the interview at least 2 times with both her parents and maybe sibling...
my only worry is the refusal since her income is not close to the poverty line

Visa decisions are based on the totality of tbe information.   I doubt the previous denials were solely because of using a co sponsor.  Likely more to the story. 

YMMV

Personally,  I would never have pursued a k1 in Tunisia but that's me.   How close are you to interview ?

YMMV

So what would you do? Spousal visa?? We didn't even file yet xD 

You still have to file an affidavit of support (form I-864) for spousal… it doesn’t absolve you of financial responsibility. I suggest your fiancé start looking for a different/extra job.

Thing is she can have a full time job and make well above the required sur. But that would me we will not talk for more than à year except for weekend.  8am to 5pm for her is 5pm to 2am for me.....

Are you seriously saying that she doesn't want to find a better job to sponsor you because you wont be able to talk often? Wow, that's a new one for me. My now husband was/is working 6 days a week for 10 hours a day while we had an 11 hour time difference for all of our K-1 journey. Still managed to talk every day and make time. We knew that financial stability and being able to show that he can sponsor me was one of the main priorities. Not to sound harsh but I suggest you rethink yours.

Well im sorry but going from talking HOURS daily to barely talking  is kind of tough.  We are together cuz we re in love not to secure something... so yeah
