  5. Hi All, I am an USC and preparing for my mothers IV package. My parents marriage certificate is not available and they got married in the 80's. now since the marriage certificate is not available i have prepared two affidavits from close relatives one from each sides. I don't have non-availability certificate from the authorities as the marriage was never registered. therefore, i am planning to send the following letter of statement to support the secondary evidence: could you please advise if this is an good approach any help is appreciated To Whom It May Concern: I, Petitioner (Petitioner), solemnly affirm and declare as under: I, Petitioner, the son of Mother and Father. The marriage between Mother and Father was not registered as it was not common to register marriages as it is voluntary to register Hindu marriages as per Hindu Marriage act of 1955. Since my father passed away on January 1, 2010, it is not possible to register my parents marriage therefore I am attaching two notarized affidavits executed by close relatives each from my Father & Mother sides. If you require any further information, feel free to contact me. Thanks for your help.

I report myself as an employee of my own company therefore i am the employer & employee. so i receive W-2 from my own company and file Schedule E as well. I am sponsoring my mum without using my wife's income and I file as Married File Jointly. Questions: - On Form I-864 - Part 6: which option should i use both or just one? - 1.a. Employed as 'abc' and 1.a.1. Name of Employer 'name of my company'. OR - 1.b. Self employed as 'abc' - Since its my company, do i need to submit the Employment letter as well? i can get the letter signed by my accountant? - Total Income reported in 19a, 19b and 19c = AGI (Adjusted Gross Income from 1040/tax transcript)? - Do i need to send out copy of my wife's W-2's in addition to mine? - To make it easier for NVC, should i write an separate statement indicating my current situation where i am the employer & employee? Many thanks for your help in advance Regards, G
