Affidavit of Support
Skilled Immigration Lawyers
The Affidavit of Support is a document required by the U.S. government that a petitioner signs in a family petition or, in some cases, for immigration based on employment. The affidavit demonstrates that the immigrant will have the necessary economic means when he or she immigrates to the U.S. and not become a public charge.
