You might want to look into an international accountant.  I do my investing/savings internationally.  It allows my Fiance and I to have a joint account, since we’re different nationalities.

Ha, yeah a joint US account would have been nice to have back when my Fiance was visiting me in the US….

In general it’s hard to get a bank account if you can’t prove ties to the country (it’s harder in France than the US!). I never did manage a joint account while we were apart, however now when the two of us visit the US I use my accounts, and my Fiance can add money if he wants. I still have my B of A account because they don’t charge for taking money out of any BNP atm, although after I changed my address they still keep sending mail to my parents house which I’m not too thrilled about. I also have a Charles Schwab account which is great, as they don’t charge for taking money out of any ATM in France and they’ll actually send mail to my French address. 

I guess what you could do is open another account under your name, and then manage it together? Hope it works out!
