Hi, so I am the beneficiary and my sponsor is supposed to be my fiance. My fiance runs his own business slash social enterprise (LLC) and sales was hit quite bad by COVID. It was already in debt before because it's only a few years old. Anyway, his tax consultant did the figures and he just told me that his adjusted gross income is -26,000. ? Our lawyer in the US thinks that we should just file a joint sponsor and it will be fine. My fiance concurs.
We have come so far, though, and I have also read that some consulates don't allow for joint sponsors for the K1. Mind you, I'm not a Thai national but am a foreigner working here so I don't know if they might take my nationality and job prospects into account. We do have savings, but our savings doesn't amount to 5 x 22000 = $ 110,000 to prove. Much less so if it has to cover the -26,000.
We are both in our 30s and he has a Master's while I'm working on mine so I am hoping that will also show that I am not going to be a public charge (although with the new administration, I'm not quite sure how that works.) Has anyone used a joint sponsor for the Bangkok consulate? Should we just try to borrow some money from family as an early inheritance thing in order to make our cash assets work?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. ??
