Spousal Visa When Alien is Unemployed

03 Jan 2020

“If I’m unemployed does it affect my US spousal visa? I’ve never worked.”

No. It’s not going to affect your case or your petition if you, the applying alien, haven’t ever worked before. Now, having said that, your US citizen sponsor or green card holder sponsor would have to prove that they meet the financial requirements, and prove that they can sponsor you, and show that you’re not going to become a public charge and collect means-tested benefits.

NOTE: Please note this question was answered prior to the new Public Charge Rule, which now does look at the alien’s work history more closely as a weighted positive factor.
