Hi, I'm new here but have been reading for awhile now. My husband and i are completely devastated and don't understand why.

To help you all understand alittle of what happened.............

We had our interview (hubby is the non USC), had all the required documents, lots of evidence (you name it, we had it), medical & police report-perfect. We were feeling somewhat confident, very nervous but confident. We have not seen eachother in well over a year so we were excited about finally getting a interview. Ok, so the interview went well, (at first) then the CO says that your wife doesn't make enough income, (we were given the 221g form) well we knew that so we had a joint sponsor, it was my niece. She's not wealthy and rich but she made alittle over $23,000 (no dependents). What my husband and i don't understand is, how do they come to the conclusion that she also doesn't make enough? Do they count the two of them on her affidavit of support? or am i and our children (3) counted together with my niece, and my hubby as well on that same affidavit? We are simply confused and heart broken. My husband and i discussed this and i was under the impression that the joint sponsor would be counted on there and the joint sponsors dependents (if any, in our case she had none) and the beneficiary (my husband). I don't know anymore, we don't know how this works i guess. We were given a date months from now to get another joint sponsor......I'm almost drowned in my own tears.

I kindly ask if anyone can shed some light for us to help us better understand, we both would appreciate it.

Thank you and good luck to everyone on this tedious journey

I am not an expert on how they count the money. I can't answer your question about that.

I can say that in my experience with the USCIS/ SS/ and DOS, I have seen that it is much easier to provide what they ask for. Even if they are wrong. The I 134 is not a legally binding document. If possible find a different joint sponsor that clearly makes over the guidelines and send them the forms ASAP.
