Would a U.S. job offer help me get my marriage-based visa (if my U.S. spouse’s income is too low)?
I am a national of Japan, recently married to a woman who is a U.S. citizen. I work as a business executive, and speak English. I am already looking for a job in the United States, and may have an offer by the time I attend my immigrant visa interview. My wife, however, is widowed with one child, and works part-time as a teacher’s aide. It appears her income does not reach the required level to sponsor an immigrant. If I obtain a job offer, will this overcome this difficulty? Will she still need to fill out Form I-864?
