I have a quick question. I was approved for 1-129f and now we need to get the package together to send back to the embassy(Egyptian).

I just started working again in Sept 07, and haven't worked full time since 2004. I have worked it's just I haven't been working full-time due to illness. I'm better now but I don't have income tax since 2004 over the poverty level, and I'm working now but my tax won't show me being over the poverty level.

I did get a letter from my employer stating my current salary, which will show me above the poverty level, I just don't have this in tax forms for the last year and the 3 current years either. I did ask my Mother to co-sponsor and she said she would, so what years taxes do I need? 05,06,07? or 04,05,06? and also what years does my Mother need to give me? or what is it she needs to give me besides the signing the forms?

Also, say she has 3 children, plus herself does she have to make money for a family of 5 to qualify?

Thanks a lot in advance

Usually you submit I-864 with tax papers for the most recent tax year (for the 3 recent tax years is optional) along with the AOS application after the K1 holder enters the US and got married to the petitioner. And yes, if your mom has 3 children (including you) living in her household, she would have to make enough money to support them, herself and your fiance. Household size of 5.

For an interview at an embassy overseas you will have to submit I-134 (unless otherwise instructed by the embassy itself). That form has slightly different requirements what to submit along with it than I-864. You/your mom will need bank statements about accounts and deposits, statements from the employers about how much you earn and when you got hired, some pay stubs wouldn't hurt and state if you have any property, assets etc. Check out the instructions on the form, it tells you everything. It doesn't ask for tax documents yet.

Thanks Liebi. I need further explanation on something. What year taxes do they need if I send the papers now? 06 or 07? I haven't done my taxes for 07; but here is a catch and I'm worried about it.

I was ill for 05, most of 06 and didn't start working until Aug of 07 and I am no where near the poverty line in taxes. However, I'm working full time now and can support us, I just don't have the income tax records to show it. I have gotten a letter from my manager telling my income. I have copies of my pay stubs as well.

I'm getting my Mom to be a co-sponsor and yes she is making well over the poverty levels. Would it be a problem if she lives in another state? and secondly do I have to send my bank statement as well with the co-sponsor tax papers?

Thanks

Nancy,

They are most concerned with current income. I think there's a judgement call involved when you have only been making that income for a short time, but if your mom meets the requirements and is co-sponsoring, it doesn't matter what your income is (even if zero).

The general rule of thumb as far as evidence is concerned is that "too much" is better than "too little" (though some people definitely overdo it). Include some evidence of your income as claimed on your I-134, and make sure you have all evidence you can get for your mother, within reason. Include the things Leibi mentions.

Good luck

Thanks everyone. Can i use a co-sponsor for Egypt for k-1? and do my sponsor and I both submit I-134, because i made 15,000 under the poverty level do to temp disability. I'm working now and make well over the poverty level, but dont have the tax forms to show. Will Egyptian consulate accept my co-sponsor? recent pay stubs, letter from employer?

thanks

I think there's one or two countries who have issues with a co-sponsor, and I don't believe Egypt is one of them. They are all governed by the U.S. so the requirements are (more or less) the same globally. I think you can safely assume a co-sponsor is ok

Good luck!
