arrowWhat exactly counts as "annual income"?

Our case is the following: my USA fiance was working as a contractor for a company 40 hour a week the whole last year, making pretty good money. In February he came to Spain to spend 3 months with me (as his company said he could work remotely, and therefore he would be making money while visiting me). But the company run out of projects and stopped sending him work, which basically means he made very little money for 5 months this year.

Then, upon returning to the USA, he got a job in another company 40 hours a week, in which he is making 30,000 a year. BUT he started this job in June, so he will not have made that amount when 2016 ends. Approximately, in 2016, he will have made a total of somewhat over 15,000.

On top of this, he has some credit debt from the months he wasn't given work. It's not a lot, but not sure he will have paid it all off before we he has to provide proof of income (we recently received our NOA1).

So my questions are:

1) is annual income counted by actual year - which would mean he has to make a minimum of 125% the poverty line IN 2016-, or rather means that if you got a job that pays you more than that you're fine regardless of WHEN you started making money?

2) is credit debt a problem? will it count against us? does he have to provide this info at all?

3) is there a minimum of savings in bank required?

4) overall, do we need a joint sponsor, or we will be fine as he is currently making way more than the minimum required?

Thanks a lot for your answers!

Hi there VJrs,


As the topic title states, I concurrently filed I-130, I-485 and I-765 a couple of months ago, but did not file for I-131 since I thought I would not need it. However, I have decided to travel during Christmas and I need to file the I-131, but I do not know where to send it.


Does the I-131 also go to the Chicago Lockbox office?

arrowHow long does it take to get NOA1 via email/text?

Hi guys!

This is my first post, though have browsed the forum a lot.

We sent our petition package on Saturday August 6, and our check was cashed on Saturday 12 (completed on Monday 14). That means USCIS got our package the week of August 7-13 (we had a problem with the USPS tracking, that is still stuck on "accepted at post office", but that's another story!).

We included a G-1145 with our package, but my fiancé hasn't received any notification from USCIS yet. We know the NOA1 hard copy takes a couple of weeks, but I thought the email/text notification was just a matter of a couple of days? Well, it's been a week and no news from them yet. Is this normal or should we start to worry? How long did it take for you?

Thanks for your help!

arrowEmbassy Interview - Return Of Passport Issue

Hi, my wife is Russian and is a legal resident of Spain. Our interview will be in Madrid but we live in the South of Spain. Thus we must fly to Madrid and back.


My question is:: here in Spain even when flying domestically...when you check in for a flight, they ask for her resident's card _AND_ her Russian passport. Being the Embassy will keep her passport and send it to us via courier, how will she be able to check in to our return flight home??


Not sure how to deal with this, can the embassy offer us any kind of document that will certify that they have her passport that will allow her to get on the flight?


There is no way we can drive to Madrid and avoid flying.


Thanks for any help

Does any one know what happens internally after taking your biometrics?.  I thought USCIS submits your biometrics to the FBI right after they take them, I googled FBI processing times for 2016  and the offical website states it may take between 11 and 14 weeks,   My questions are. do they start processing your application after they get the OK from the FBI or before?. Im an early Dec application  and last week I called to get an update, TIER2 told me  they started my packed in June, What happened before that?  why people that sent off their pakage at the same time or even later got already their application processed ?.  How different is this process from AOS? .
