If Joint Sponsor provides transcripts, are W2's necessary?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My dad is our co sponsor. He files taxes jointly with my mom. He just sent me transcripts from IRS for the last 3 years like I requested. Do I still need need to ask for his W2's??? I really hope not :( the NVC guide on here doesnt specify, only says they are needed if it were tax returns. Has anyone gotten a checklist for not providing?

The transcript shows combined income of mom and dad (assuming mom also has income) so you would need to show only dad's income for the I-864. Their tax returns will show the individual income. Copies of dad's W2's will show just his income.

Thanks but I understood my mom would also have to fill out an I-864a in order to show that she is a household member? Is this correct?

hi

not necessarily, he can file without your mom if his income alone meets the requirements

on the i864 he will fill out his individual income, and the proof will be his W2s and they will be able to know what part of the taxes filed is his individual income

your mom will only file the i864A is if they need to combine their individual incomes

Oh i See. I'm sure my dad's income alone is enough. My mom's isnt much so it doesnt really influence.
