So I am trying to bring my wife from Pakistan and I am trying to get her a visa.
I payed the AOS and IV fees and I have also sent the DS-260 application online.
I am also about to send everything else to the NVC such as the civil documents and Affidavit of support documents.
But before I send the 864 financial support information, I have a few questions I want to double check on.
Basically my income is not enough and I am using my sister as a co-sponsor.
We live together in the same house along with her 2 children, my parents, one brother, and another sister. So theres a total of 8 of us in the same house.
My sister is also married but her husband lives in another state temporarily.
What I am confused about is how my sister and her husband filed jointly together on their tax returns.
When I printed her IRS tax transcript, it wont show her individual income but both her and her husbands incomes combined.
So in part 6 it asks if I am using any additional household income.
Since I am combining my income with my sisters income, I also put her name down.
But in part 6c, it asks for her income, so should I put her individual income or what it shows on the IRS tax transcript which is the income for both my sister and her husband since they filed jointly?
This is the same case for the other document the 864a, which the co-sponsor my sister fills out.
So in question number 10 it asks for her individual income. Again should I put in her individual income or her and her husbands income combined?
In question 11, it asks for the federal income tax total income for tax year 2013.
Are the answers to question numbers 10 and 11 supposed to be the same?
Also going back to the regular 864 document
In part 3 ( Information on the immigrant I am sponsoring), am I supposed to count my wife as Family Member 1 or do I leave this information blank?
I am only bringing my wife.
In the regular form 864 for part 5 question 8 the household size, do I put in 3 since my sister is co-sponsoring?
So one for me, one for my wife, and one for my sister correct?
Do I include any of my sisters family here? Her and her husband both support their 2 kids financially.
In Part 3 question 1? I am sponsoring the principal immigrant.......
Do I put in yes or no (applicable only in cases with 2 joint sponsors)
Should I use any of my assets or my sisters assets even though I know my sister makes more then enough?
I figured it can't hurt
Sorry for all the questions but this form is a little complicated, especially when your using a co-sponsor.
At least I have all the right evidence needed
to show me and my sisters relationship (through birth certificate)
our tax transcripts and my tax copy (hard to get one for my sister)
our passport copy's
job offer letter
