My fiance has his own business and filed a loss so he is below the poverty line
thing. He said that we can combine our assets and use that to make up the difference
using his house and my money. Does this money of mine have to be on hold till the
affadavit is over or can it be spent during that time, because as I won't have a job
when I first get over there I will need to spend some of it plus I will need some of
it to get myself and my belongings over there. Please someone help cause this is
doing my head in.

Thanks

Catherine

Your fiance could provide bank records to bolster his case if that would demonstrate
"above poverty level" income.

As for assets...they do not mean much unless you generate income from them.

Worse case.... will need a co-sponsor.

You do not need to generate income from assets - I used my home as an asset for both
my I-134 and I-864. Take Care. Shelley

You don't have to qualify on assets alone. If your income falls short you can make up
the difference with assets, but the value of the asset must be 5 times the amount of
the difference. Example: If 125% of poverty was $1,000 and your income was $900, you
can make up the difference if you have an asset worth $500. All this information can
be found at the INS site under the Section "Who is eligible to be a Sponsor":

The I-134 is only concerned with current income. The I-864 which you file with your
AOS after marriage requires the last three years income. An asset that makes up 5
times the difference between what you make and 125% of poverty can be used - see
examples at the INS website: http://www.ins.usdoj.gov/graphics/howdoi/affsupp.htm
