CR1 Financial Requirement Questions - Help Please!


I have some questions about the CR1 Financial Requirements.

I'm a UK based citizen. I've been dating my GF from Texas for 5 years now, and we're going to take the plunge and marry.

We're going to be going down the CR1 Visa route, and I just wanted to get some clarification about the financial requirements.

She lives in Texas with her 18 month child. She intends to sponsor me.

As such, the financial requirement is $27,450.

I will not be employed by an American company at the time of the CR1 application.

My finances are as follows:

Regular Income

Employment: $- (not allowed to be counted, since it's not a company based in America).


Savings: $3000

Stocks & Shares: $10,000

Cryptocurrency: $55,000

Property (my primary domestic home): $50,000

Total: $118,000

Her finances are as follows:

Regular Income

Employment: $- (unemployed)

Child Support: $1800 a month / $21,600 a year


Stocks & Shares: $10,000

Savings: $10,000

Would we meet the financial requirements?

My assets are not easy to liquidate. Is her child support payments able to be counted to the CR1?

The consular officer will make a decision regarding this requirement at the time of the interview. For more information, please visit . To avoid delays, an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 for a joint sponsor may be submitted." ​ We already have a petitioner and a household sponsor (the household sponsor's income is above the required level), but still unsure why we received this. Has anyone else received this message? All of our documents say "Approved" on NVC. Does this mean we have to find another sponsor? Can we show the consular officer our
