co-sponsor question

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just want to ask a quick question on something! Ok my fiance (USC) has already filed our I-129f petition still waiting for our 2nd NOA.. As my fiance doesn't work at all, he has no income or any assets of any kind. He takes care of his father full time.. My fiance's sister & brother wants to co-sponsor me. With my fiance's sister who works at a hospital in the pharmacy department who earns well above the federal poverty guidelines.. What i want to know is, she needs to show proof of her tax returns for the year.. What she has told me that she does her tax returns along with her husbands. My question is does that matter if she does her tax returns along with her husbands as her proof of her own income for the year? Or would she be better to have her husband co-sponsor me as he has his own business?

Any advice would be much appreciated..

Thanks

She would have to show proof of income (in the form of tax returns), so if she filed jointly, she would submit the joint returns. Since she has her own W-2/1099's as appropriate, they will be able to verify just her income.

I would suggest you use tax transcripts, and highlight the required information.

You would be in the same predicament with the husband, since they file jointly.


My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.

WARNING: Phrases in this post may sound meaner than they were intended to be. Read the Adjudicator's Field Manual from USCIS
