My fiance's K-1 visa was approved last month, and he will be coming to the US at the beginning of August. We plan on getting married ASAP and applying for AOS as soon as we get the marriage certificate.
I am currently a student, so my father will be my fiance/husband's joint sponsor. He already has his tax transcripts ready.
Question 1: Per the form instructions, it seems like all we need are the tax transcripts or return photocopies, but so many people on here send copies of letter of employment, pay stubs, letters from the bank, etc etc. Is this necessary? We plan on getting a letter of employment from HR as my father got one for the i-134 and it will be easy to update. Should we submit more evidence? My father's household size is 3 including my fiance, and his income is way over the minimum. He has been with the same company for almost 35 years (this is in the HR letter).
I know I need to file the i-864 of course, even though I am currently a student and have zero income. I filed my 2016 taxes in mid-March, however, the IRS has not yet accepted my return and there is now a mix-up over my health insurance status. (Briefly, the IRS thinks I got premium tax subsidies through the healthcare exchange for 2015 and need to file a 1095-A - but I was not insured. Currently trying to get the exchange to recognize this and send corrected info to the IRS, but of course it's taking forever). At this point, I am not confident that the issue will be resolved in the next month. I have begged the healthcare exchange to move faster on this, but they don't care.
Question 2: I plan on submitting a photocopy of my 2016 return - but will it cause problems that the IRS has not accepted my return yet? Should I submit anything in addition to the return photocopy (an explanation?) or just not mention the issue?
Thanks in advance!
