hi all,

I posted a few days ago about the RFE we received, well its finally got here now! so they sent the one that says.

F. (11) we are unable to determine if your household income meets or exceeds the 125% of the federal poverty line.......

-now i make enough as the USC , my husband has proof of assets in the USA (well in excess of the 5x the difference as they ask for), so i was wondering why the RFE? i checked the opack we sent in and we forgot/neglected/stupdily missed out (take your pick) any paystubs - everything else W2's/letter from employer/ IRS statements was in the pack. Would they really RFE for forgetting the paystubs when everything else is there? The thing is i only just started making enough this tax year and as such my previous 3 years tax stuff doesn't show enough. Has this happened to anyone else.

Should I:-

1) resubmitt the whole I 864 and get a co sponsor(another I864): to be on the safe side?

2) just submit the paystubs?

3) resubmit the I864 just by ourselves (with no co sponsor AND the pay stubs) ?

:unsure:

I feel a little better about this now as at least i know what is wrong - the wait for the RFE was terrible - not knowing what to do etc...

any advice anyone.

thanks

I don't think pay stubs are expilicitly mentioned in the I-864 instructions. I think most send them as supplemental information to the employer letter.

We also got the same RFE letter and concluded that the only thing they could be asking for was my 2005 tax return. Which years did you already send?

Hi, nope pay stubbs are not mentioned in the RFE either - ????? we got the 2005 taxes done real early and sent those in too, it appears that a few people have had 2005 tax issues. Would they you what is missing if we scheduled an info pass appointment??

I know some people have tried calling the USCIS to try to get information, and I think a few have been successful. It wouldn't hurt to try that first.

I am not sure but if you filled out the part where you show your income and the family size and then the poverty guideline level etc. (parts C and D) did you support the line item figures with documents? e.g. if you said you had income of xxx (did you W2 or tax return support that?) If you said you had bank assets of zzz did a bank statement support that? Get my drift? Maybe you can highlight the line items and support them as 1) W-2; 2) Bank statement; 3) Property tax statement etc. etc. Good Luck

hi again all,

OK im going to try the information line (hope they can help), just one other question. I have changed my(USC) name to my husbands , the original I864 (I485 etc) had my maiden name - if i have to refile the I864 should i use my new married name or will this confuse things??

thanks

OK we tried the information line they said.

1) you do not need to file the whole I864 again - just end in the paystubs.

2) as my tax returns for the last 3 years DO NOT show 125% of the poverty line then you should consider a co-sponsor. They are trying establish a "normal" level of income even though you only have to "currently" make it.

3) When you send in the paystubs IF you use a cosponsor, send a letter saying : if needed please use the co-sponsor I864 ....(or words to that effect). IF it all goes through and the co-sponsor is NOT needed this will be discussed at interview.

so - i guess im gonna send in the paystubs (fingers crossed) and send them a co-sponsor I864.

NOTE: the lady at USCIS (Ruthanne) also said get a reply sent ASAP.

wish us luck
