Timeline

My husband and I went to his interview for an immigrant visa on May 18th. One of the documents that they requested was an I-864a to be filled out by my mom, a joint sponsor. However, I am now working and making well over the minimum for a household of 3 ($5k over actually). From my understanding that means I no longer need a joint sponsor.

So I called the embassy and the local Barbadian that answered was trying to say that I needed to make at least that minimum in the year 2009 to not need a joint sponsor.

Is that right?

I thought that I just needed to show that I am making at least the minimum regardless of what year.

Who's right in this situation? Please respond because I'm sending it to them via DHL in a few hours. :thumbs:

im not sure but i think that they may be right with 2009. Because that way they can see a person has kept a job and may have money or what not, where as if you only just got a job anyone could have a job for a month or 2 and lose it again. I hope that makes sence..

Have you tried calling the NVC? Maybe they will know?

Again, it your 2009 income,,that is why they request 3 years of income tax and a letter from your present employer a-testing to that the fact that your present income is constant to meet the income level.

I don't think I can call the NVC anymore because they no longer have the case. In a way that doesn't really make sense either. If that were the case, that would mean that I'd have to wait for a 2010 poverty guideline? no right?

And it says that no where on the I-864. I told her all of this and I guess I convinced her because she said that I could go ahead and send my new I-864 with supporting documents (employment letter, W-2, check stubs, etc.) :dance:

I even got it in writing. I asked the person I was talking to to send a confirmation e-mail and she did. I attached that to everything that I'm sending.

Okay then explain what they do to people that didn't have to file in 2009. The I-864 states that if they didn't have to file, all they have to do is type up an explanation letter and show evidence backing it up. What happens to people in that case?

What do you mean by didn't have to file in 2009, you didn't have a job, or your income was not subject to taxation?

Yeah. My income was not subject to taxation because it was under the minimum amount that requires you to file for taxes.
