So I’ll try to be short and concise:
I’m a 26 year old Hungarian man who fell in love with an American woman. She has 4 kids and she is also married to her husband, a military man. She is also 4 weeks pregnant with MY child. They have been separated for 2 years prior but not officially divorced. They were planning a divorce well before she met me, but her husband got an assignment in Hu and she followed him because she didn’t want to keep the kids away from him.
So anyways, the assignment was over, they moved back to the States and now are filing for a divorce.
If everything goes well with the pregnancy our baby will due at the end of July. Now, I understand she will have to get divorced first before we can file for a K-1 and the whole thing may not be done by the time her labor starts.
So my question is: Can we start the K1 visa process and meanwhile I go over on a tourist to be there at the big day? If for any reason I missed my own child’s birth I would be devastated.
Next question, income requirements:
So what I understood a household of 7 (5 kids plus) will have a minimium annual income requirement of $49 550 (that’s 125% of the poverty treshold of a household of 7 people, so $39 640* 1.25=$49 550)
To me this seems quite a lot and from what I read it’s more than the annual average US salary. Im guessing her child support after the 4 kids would also count.
Do assets and savings count? I’m reading conflicting information. If they do count, how much would be the minimum asset value requirement? I also own property in Hu, worth about $100 000, I dont know if that matters or not, it’s not liquid cash. I could try to sell it but I would much rather hold on just for now.
Would the whole thing be easier if she came back to Hu, got married and tried the spouse visa instead?
Thanks for Your help! This seems a lot harder than I anticipated. I love this woman and she loves me, we have a baby on the way and I want to be there, be together every step, I’m already heartbroken as it is that we have to be away from each other.
