Well, in the main K1 forum there is a post by a newbie who's case was denied/delayed on the 29th of March. Apparently they denied him because he has inadequate income and didn't care that he had a co-sponsor. At least, that is what I think he said. His post is kind of confusing.

So once again more rumors or information that if you have a co-sponsor, HCMC will slap you down. If this is true I am doomed.

Have ANY of the cases approved of since January 1 of this year had a co-sponsor?

syee999 is the poster.

P.S. I cannot find my income tax returns for the last 5 years. I have no idea what happened to them. How can I get copies of them? Is there any way?

You are just in one heck of a pickle. I was thinking about our whole engagement party discussion too. On the one hand, you've got this co-sponsor flag thing. Then you may have the lack of engagement ceremony flag also. But then if you do go for anything extravagent while your income is in question, that will be another flag because they will wonder where you suddenly got a large sum of money, so it's probably best not to do that either.

This isn't really a very uncommon predicament guys find themselves in too. They know that if they have only one visit, their may be skepticism of the relationship, but then if they don't make a lot of money they will be questioned on how they can afford to Travel so many times.

I still think your case has enough positives to overcome these questions though. The fact that you met in another country is a good thing. It would seem to me that if she can afford to travel out of country already, then she is not looking to get into the US just to find work. I mean, who goes to France to get a phony US visa?

The consulate officers know that. Relax. If you have a good co-sponsor and you get denied, at least you will have taught others something.

She didn't pay for her trips to Europe. All were paid for by her school, or by sponsors in Europe who were kind enough to send her the money for the tickets.

We have decided to do the Dam Hoi. We will have 30 people and it will top out at $1300. Anh's parents were understanding and agreed with all my requirements. Anh is now relaxing a bit.

There will be a ring, but not a classic engagement type ring, which she does not want anyway. Basically, it's a platinum ring with 5 diamonds and will run me around $1500. It's gorgeous, actually and she will love it and her parents will be very very happy. It shall end up being her wedding band. She doesn't like the idea of a wedding band and another ring with a fat diamond. "Too bulky", so that is kinda good in my favor. :D

So my only real worry right now is how do I prove I paid for my ticket to Vietnam since it's from a voucher...

And the co-sponsor situation.

Matt,

It does seem by the latest post that there wasn't a straight out denial. Here is the thread in question http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=7918

Denial, delay. Whatever. That blue slip means 1/2 a year to a years additional wait. Basically, asbolute torture for the couple involved. It will be very hard on a relationship to be thrown into limbo like that.

In my case, I really think I am screwed. Not only did I officially make no money last year, but I am moving this Summer and that means looking for a job. Worse, my mother, who is my co-sponsor is also moving and that means she will be switching jobs!

Matt,

I realized you have alot of concerns right now. You need to better position yourself if you do get a delay because of having a co-sponser. What I mean is you need to find a job this week. You still have a few months to go before the interview and by having a job (now or very soon), in 1 or 2 months you can have the employer work letter and other supporting documents that they may request with getting the blue slip. Post your resume on Monster.com, Look in Craigs lists. Their are alot of jobs out there that will put you above the poverty limit.

Good luck

I wouldn't worry so much. HCMC is not denying all joint sponsors. They just have a criteria for who they will accept. I think that since your joint sponsor is your mother, they will allow you. The theory behind this is if the joint sponsor is a member of the petitioner's family, the petitioner is less likely to have committed marriage fraud. After all, if you're to bring someone over for money, would you tell your mother? In other words, a person who commits a crime is less likely to ask his family to be apart of his criminal affairs, especially his mother.

I had a joint sponsor who is my brother. Nothing was mentioned.

I hope you are right.

Now my problem is taxes. My ex wife SHREDDED all of my returns and W2's! Why? Because she could. So now what?!

I am really ready to have a heart attack. My stress levels have not been this high since the divorce was going on. :(

Hello Matt,

I didn't have my tax records either, and this is information given to me by my attorney:

If you don't have a copy of your Federal income tax returns, you can order a transcript of this return

from the IRS by calling 1-800-829-1040; however please note that we will still need copies of

all w2's and/or 1099's. You should be able to obtain copies of your w2's and/or 1099's from

your employer, and you can also order copies of them from the IRS however the IRS charges

a fee for this service.

You should contact them to obtain your records. It took about 8 to 10 days to receive the transcripts. I had my W-2's, so I didn't order those. I hope this information helps.
