Default Complications if new at job before immrant status granted to family.

I would like to know if there would be any complications to my family's
immigration status if I'm new at a job during their immigration process
specifically when they're closer to their visa interview.

I ask because I found a couple of better opportunities for me out there
that I know I am very much qualified for but am not sure if it'll
complicate my family's immigration process if I would still be in the
probation period at a new job.

Thanks.

Hi Jranin,

Complications in what way? You mean for the Affidavit of Support?

Hi Noorah101,

Technically, yes. I've already filed the affidavit of support but what
I'm concerned about is if during my interview I get asked if I'm still
at my current job right now, I'm not sure how it would look if I say
that I'm at a new job and still in the probation period. Since being
in the probation period does not satisfy stability at a job yet, I
don't want to give the impression that the possibility of my family
being a public charge is likely.

I hope I make some sense because the 2 opportunities I'm very much
qualified for pays double what I get paid now. With me having it
definitely is a big plus to me and my family's financial situation.

Thanks.

You are allowed to have a life believe it or not. And CIS also allows you to better yourself professionally. There is no need to tell them you are in a probationary period of employment. That is completely unnecessary.

I agree with Rete. If you accept new employment before your family has their visa interview, you'll probably need to supply a new I-864 with current information, and a new employment letter and paystub(s). It won't matter that the job is new.
