Hi, my fiancé is in the US and I'm from the Philippines and we wanna apply for a K1 visa using a Joint Sponsorship since my fiancé doesn't meet the income requirements. His grandmother is more than happy to do this for us. But I just have some questions on what we need to do and was wondering if anyone from this subreddit can help us out.
- What forms do we need to fill out for affidavit of support and when do we submit them? I read that we're supposed to get the i-134 filled out by the sponsor (grandmother and not my fiancé ). Then after we get married, they both need to fill out their own copy of the i-864. Is this understanding correct?
- We saw on a bunch of websites that Joint Sponsors for K1 Visas are not allowed in the Philippines. We have tried to contact the US Embassy in Manila and they basically said yes and that it is still a case by case basis. Is this true for 2020?
Note: We tried to call my embassy and the USCIS hotline to hopefully get solid answers for #1 but we have yet to talk to any human :(
