I have searched all over for information, contacted immigration and have found little help with my problem. I'm hoping someone that has dealt with this or an immigration lawyer could answer my question. I lived in south Korea for 5 years teaching English. I meet a woman I wanted to marry. She got pregnant so we had to rush everything. I know that you have to show one year's history of financial ability with your tax return. But i haven't worked in USA for 5 years. So can you start the visa process, then show the affidavit of support later? or is there any work around so I don't have to be away from my new born child and wife for 2 years. Thank you for reading this, any reply would be so appreciated. Have a nice day.
It is much simpler than you think, if you don't meet the financial requirements, all you need to do is find the cosponsor file an additional affidavit of support alongside yours. Begin by contacting the US accountant or CPA. There are some in South Korea which can be recommended by the US Embassy in Seoul. US citizens have to file tax returns even when living and working abroad. I hope you have, but not the tragedy if you have not, since a good accountant can file tax returns in arrears for the last four years or amend your current tax returns. Begin from there.
