Not sure if I am in the right forum, but I am filing an AOS for my wife. She's got a CNMI IR permit and with the federalization of immigration here, she needs to file for AOS. Anyways, we are putting together everything for the AOS and the I-864 is the elephant in the room. USCIS has said that they will be understanding on applications from here and there's at least one pending bill in the house to do away with income requirements on the i-864 for people in our same situation, but I'm not holding my breath.

Anyways, 2008 income was about $15,000 because we were living in the Philippines in 2008. Since moving to Saipan, our income has increased substantially and we are earning 50k per year jointly now. We have letters from our employer and pay stubs proving the salary that we can put in the i-864. Will there be any problem on income? From what I understand, current income is what they pay the most attention to and that is well over the 125% of poverty level.

What's the worst that can happen, asking for a cosponsor?

My husband was just recently approved for his greencard after an AOS process that took a mere two months from start to finish. I am a graduate student and he is currently unemployed since he does not yet have a work permit. I only earn $20,000/year, so had my mother co-sponsor. As long as you are 125% above poverty level or have a co-sponsor who is, they will not give you a hard time about finances. At least, not in my case. Good luck!

Thanks. Two months is fast. That would be too fast for us. Our two year wedding anniversary is Feb 26th.
