Spouse VISA - any experience?

bwelburn is an unknown quantity at this point


I'm married to a USA citizen (9 months) and we are currently living in the UK.

We are considering moving to the USA in the near future. At the moment the plan would be for my wife to get accepted as a first year resident and for me to apply for a job once we are in the USA (difficult for me to apply for a job until we know where my wifes residency will be).

My questions are:

My wife has not maintained a residence in the USA and we will not be buying anything until we get there, can she still be my SPONSOR?

We will not have any USA tax returns etc... How will that affect the application (we will have savings that we will be taking to the USA)?

If any one has any answers to the above or has been through something similar, we would be very grateful for any responses.

Thanks in advance
