Making an Affidavit of Support

  • What is an Affidavit of Support?

    If you've decided to back a foreign citizen who's immigrating to the US you can make it official with an Affidavit of Support. Moving to a new country is a daunting prospect, but if you're up for swearing that the newcomer will have adequate financial support, you likely just made the transition much easier. An Affidavit of Support can allow you the means to help someone make the move.


    Use the Affidavit of Support document if:

    • You're planning to financially support an immigrant.
    • You're immigrating to the US and know a citizen who will help support you.

    The government wants to make sure immigrants are financially secure enough to make it in America. When you sign an Affidavit of Support, you're swearing under oath that you'll help the newcomer financially. This can include anything from a place to stay to an allowance. Most things count, as long as you're going to be there to help them succeed. This document is often used when family members are immigrating to the US, but it doesn't have to be just family. As long as you're helping out an immigrant, you can qualify to formally declare your support. Coming to the U.S. can be difficult, but you can certainly make it easier. An Affidavit of Support can help a foreign citizen make the move and prove that you're in their corner.
