Many questions before an IR1

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Early planning for 2010.. many questions....

1st income to qualify for I-864, on the Affidavit of Support:

We file Foreign Earned Income Form 2555, on line 20A it says $18,000 USD for 2008, due to filling joint our income is reduced to minus on our 1040... Wont this be a flag? Should we file next year as seperate, not joint? Also we dont have W2s we file Foreign Earned Income. We will include a co sponser.

Address? Where, I dont have a real one? My 2nd sponsers house, my mailing address?

Hubby has no B/C will his passport suffice? Will his INTI number help?

Evidence of a Bonifide Marriage ???

These are the 5 options I found, and my questions.. THANKS!!

1. Documentation showing joint ownership or property

I am not Thai, I cant own land or house / Tesssabaan won't add my name to blue book. we checked.

2. A lease showing joint tenancy of a common residence

We dont lease, we own. Do I have my husband draw ME up a lease?

3. Documentation showing co-mingling of financialresources

We have a small Thai joint account. Should I get my husband, lets say on my U.S. credit card? Its an easy way, and I dont have to give him a the actual card. :-)

4. Birth certificate(s) of child(ren) born to you, thepetitioner, and your spouse together

No kids.

5. Affidavits sworn to or affirmed by third parties havingpersonal knowledge of the bona fides of the maritalrelationship.

Can someone elaborate?

I-864 - Unless your income will continue after you move back to the US then it can't help you qualify for the I-864. Majority of DCFers use their assets or a joint sponsor to qualify.

Address - Do you have a permanent mailing address in the States? (such as your parent's house) If so use that

Birth certificate- Husband will have to obtain one (I'm assuming he is the beneficiary/immigrant and you are the petitioner/sponsor)

Bonafide marriage - They may or may not ask to see any.. varies by Embassy/Consulate. Sydney didn't ask to see any even though I had prepared photos, affidavits, joint bank statements, etc. Best to have a search on this forum for advice from other VJers that have dome DCF through BKK and see what their experience was

If you are still residing in the foreign country when you file the 864, for address you should list the address there, not in the US. I specifically asked this question at the embassy and was told if I were still in Denmark at the time I filed it I should list my Denmark address, but if I had returned to the US by the time I filed it, I should list my US address. At the time of filing, they reviewed my 864 for accuracy (just as a helper so I could make any corrections necessary before filing it at the interview). At the time I was living in Denmark and had my Denmark address, and they said this was correct. However, since I moved back to the US after getting the I-130 approval, but before filing my 864, I ended up used my US address.
