hi again,,, i just want to know about dealing the poverty guidelines. We are not yet filing the K1 visa but i just want to make it sure that everything is alright.. My fiance has two sons living in other state. Then, few weeks ago, they came at my fiance's place to find a work. In short, they are now living with my fiance. But I am sure, they will find their own place once they have settled everything in terms of their work activities..

My question is:

What if we file the K1 visa? does his sons will be counted as another household members although they were born form another state? which poverty guideline it will fall?

thank you very much..

God is good all the time..

Do you know how old they are? I think if they are over 21 years old they don't count...

If they are emancipated, which appears to be the case as they are over 18 and looking for employment, he is not responsible for their support.

You do not include them as dependents within the poverty guidelines if he does not claim them as such.

Some states require child support to be paid until the age of 21 if they are attending school...

So, With that now said... DO the kids get included if he is still obligated to pay child support for them but he does NOT claim them as dependants on his tax return???

I am just curious if this number of 'dependents' for the poverty guidelines is based on the tax return for the guy or the actual support obligation that must be paid.

Thanks to any member for help clearing this up for me. :thumbs:

Hi DaSweetSpot! I just want to know, what emancipated means? I just saw that at my husband divorced paper that one of his daughter was emancipated.

US Marriage Laws website states,"The word "emancipation" literally means to become free from the control or restraint of another. In the context of emancipated minors, emancipation is essentially a legal procedure whereby children become legally responsible for themselves and their parents are no longer responsible (financially or otherwise) for their children. Thus, emancipated children are freed from parental custody and control and essentially become "adults" in many ways."
