:help: I need advice with this : NVC received the AOS on july 06 2009 with the 3 most recent tax returns, and completed the case on July 11 2009, but my husband received a checklist dated on july 14 saying this:

We have reviewed the documents which you submitted in support of an application for an immigrant

visa. Please review the information listed under each applicant's name and provide any documents

which are indicated as missing or need additional information. You must submit the required

information. Failure to provide the requested information will delay your immigrant visa interview.

MISSING DOCUMENT LIST FOR: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

______FINANCIAL EVIDENCE:__________________________________________

The NVC has received the information you have submitted in reference to

the Affidavit of Support. Please be advised that you, as the Petitioner, do

not appear to meet the minimum income requirement according to the

current poverty guidelines to sponsor the intending immigrant(s) for this

petition. The consular officer will make a decision regarding this

requirement at the time of your interview. In order to avoid delays, you

may wish to submit an additional Affidavit of Support (Form I-864) for a

Joint Sponsor to the National Visa Center to assist in sponsoring the

intending immigrants. To view the current poverty guidelines, visit

http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/I-864P.pdf.

If you decide to use a Joint Sponsor to assist in sponsoring the intending

immigrants, please note that you the sponsor may not use Form I-864EZ

and will also need to submit Form I-864.

My husband didnt include property because his cash supose to meet the minimum income requirement, he is self employed and as it says at AOS instructions, should be asets easily converted to cash plus he neded to make an apraisal for the property and that might take some time. I dont understand why they said he didnt met the income requirement.

Can we submit the apraisal and add the property information before they mail the case to the embassy, we wouldnt like they take this issue as negative at the time of the interview.

Or do we really need a joint sponsor even if he met the income requirement ? We dont't have anyone who can be the joint sponsor.

What should we do?

Concierned wife... :unsure:

You can call the NVC to doubel check the checklist. They too make mistakes. If you are saying your case was approved on July 11th. Then it could COULD be a mistake.

So call them and see first. if your husband meets the requirements there is no problem. But it also depends on his taxes and what he has listed within the I-864

Probably not a mistake. I had the same message. NVC told me they don't approve your financial status. that letter is just reminding you that the Embassy might determine that you need a co-sponsor. I'm in the same boat. I don't really have any co-sponsor options so I'm hoping the Embassy will accept my assets.

I have read here that people do get approved on the assets, but the preferred method of support is an income above poverty level. I don't know where the Embassy draws the line on the issue.

Congrats on your approval and good luck with the interview.

Did your spouse calculate the requirement properly? Asset value (including cash) must be 3X the poverty guidelines. For a household of 2 that is (3 x 18,212) $54,636. Household of 3 $68,661.

Thanks, for your reply. The anual income plus the cash my husband included in the AOS, was over the requirement, so that is why I am concierned, and in the chcklist they sent to us, makes it sound like he didn't. If the automated voice message said the case was completed on july 11, why they sent this checklist? is like the cash doesn't count, because in the AOS part 7, you include the cash as optional to meet the requirement and as I said, it was over the poverty guidelines. And the checklist say: failure to do this will delay the interview.

What is that mean, that if we don't get a jint sponsr they are not going to send the papers to the embassy?

Thanks Qiix for your reply. Yes that's the point, expecting they understand we don't have a joint sponsor. All this journey is long and difficult, not just because the process, being away from my love makes it worst. And now at the final stage we got that checklist. Now with the difficult financial situation in USA when people are getting fired from their jobs, is not easy that all this sponsors meet the requirement with income. I expect the best for all of us.

Are you having your interview soon? Good luck for u too. ;)

So, if I understand correctly you have to be making at least 55K to sponsor your fiance. Is that correct? I am confused.

No Anh map was referring to Assets..

For a household of 2 that is (3 x 18,212) $54,636. Household of 3 $68,661.

125% of poverty income is 18,212 triple that in assets is $54,636

According to the instructions on the I-864, If you use assets it has to be 3x the poverty requirement for income. It seems like NVC isn't looking at the Assets and just basing that RFE on the income section. Maybe they are skipping over that since it is the Consulate that decides.

My cash is savings shown on current bank statements was above the requirement for assets, and they still sent me that RFE..suggesting I might want to add a co-sponsor. I'm quite sure mine was calculated correctly.
