I-864 -- calculating annual income

2 posts in this topic

I'm not sure how to fill out my annual income for the I-864 affidavit of support form. Since graduating from college I've been working as a teacher of English as a second language, but I've had two long periods of not working. The most recent period was from last May to Last October, so about 6 months. And my current job is nearly finished and then I have to get a new one. So I'm not really sure what to put as my "annual" income since I've only worked 7 of the past 12 months, but when I do work my salary puts me well above 125% of the federal poverty line for 2. Also, in the fall I plan to attend graduate school, so obviously then my salary will be zero.

And my wife has a steady job now, but in the fall she starts a TA-ship while in grad school, so she pays no tuition and receives a $12,000 stipend. If I produce proof that she has this job lined up, should I record it on the I-864? I'm unsure because the instructions for filling out the form say it should only be if she has the job now and it will continue to provide her income after she immigrates. So I'm uncertain what exactly that means.
