|CRBA for 4 year old daughter
Read 0 Times
Thank you for your comments and advises!!!
I've talked to the council today again and they said
it would be difficult for me to have the CRBA and US passport for our daughter if my husband is not present.
(because we weren't married at the time of our daughters birth.)
BUT! she said its up to the councilmen to decide
and my husband could write a letter of the reason that he can't be here it might get approved.
and if not, we might have to do a DNA test.
right now I have done
Child's Birth Certificate
Affidavit of Child's Name
Parents' Marriage Certificate
Evidence of Parent's U.S. Citizenship
I'm waiting on my husband to complete
Evidence of physical presence
Both Parents' IDs
I've just copied and pasted what was on the embassy web page..
so my question is...
- does my husband have to send his original ID?
I read the instructions and it says so... but if he won't be present then will it be okay with a copy?
- should he file for my IR1/CR1 while we are here in JP? or can we do that after we arrive in the US?
|I-864 - may be the worst form. Help!? Urgent
Read 28 Times
Currently finishing up the last form (I-864 as part of AOS from VWP) but our situation just got a little confusing. My husband has just this week accepted a job offer that comes with a significant pay increase. We're all set to post our forms in the next two days and will need to do so to meet the deadline.
With his current income we don't quite meet the 125% of poverty deadline and would then include his brother's income as part of the household income (the three of us live together) and that would take us well over the poverty line. Should we just complete the form this way and keep it simple? Or would my husband's new income be easier to use and better reflect our situation? Bearing in mind the only proof we have of this income at the moment is his contract stating what he'll be making from next week. His last years tax return is obviously going to show a significantly lower income.
Where it gets even more confusing :wacko: ... My husband and his brother both lived in New Zealand for 10 years as permanent residents and paid tax there when they were old enough to work (I understand they didn't need to pay federal tax to the US from what I've read here : http://www.irs.gov/Individuals/International-Taxpayers/Foreign-Earned-Income-Exclusion---Requirements - They are both excluded)
But as a result neither have tax returns or income within the US for the last three years.
What do we do about this? Enter New Zealand income for part 6. 13b and 13c ? They both have W2's for the last year. Or do we leave them blank and need to supplement I-864 and I-864a with and explanation as to why there's only 1 year?
They don't really leave much room for anything outside the box on this one huh?
We really appreciate any help, Visa Journey has been such a gem
