When I read the instructions it said that i didn't have to send the employment letter only if the consul asked for it. This is a different process for me . I came under K3 Visa and This petition is for my mom now who is coming with visa immigrant. I called NVC and i was told that i was supposed to send the letter and the other day I put this in the forum and somebody told me that i didn't need to ....Help please.

No, it is not required unless they ask for it:

(2) Job Letters and Proof of Income.

Pay stub(s) showing income for the most recent 6 months and letters from all current employers are no longer required as initial evidence. The applicant, however, may submit either or both of these items (1) in response to a request for additional evidence (RFE), or (2) with a Form I-864 if the applicant believes doing so would help establish that the sponsor meets the governing income/assets threshold.

Mace1,

You are right. The employment letter (normally) is not 'required'. However, why not just make it simple for yourself?

1) You called NVC. They told you, you should send one. The answer is simple....SEND ONE!! While sometimes the NVC operators do make mistakes. Why take the chance and gamble with it?

The VJ member who said you didn't need it is right. You normally don't need it. BUT, you called NVC and they said send it. In the end, it is not VJ members approving your mother's visa... it's the US State Department (NVC and the US embassies are all parts of the US State Department).

2) A good thing to remember is:... always think ahead -AND- it's always better to submit a little extra rather than a little less.

For example: The instructions told you. It's not necessary to send employment letter unless the consulate tells you to. From this information we know: There is a small chance the consul MAY ask for it. (In most cases not, But we know there's a chance. SO, why not send it anyway (this is my meaning... better to submit a little extra). If it is the consulate who may ask for a letter of employment, this means that the issue would come at the end of the process at interview time. So, why wait for that chance just to have more delay and your mom have to wait while you get the letter and send it? Just send it now.

I will give my case as another example:

In my case, I had a temporary, but big, reduction in work hours in 2009 because of the economic crisis. Therefore, my salary was not enough for the I-864 requirements. So, I have a co-sponsor who makes 3 times more than the minimum requirement. So, no problems.

In my situation, I was not required to send an employment letter. BUT, I sent an employer letter anyway. The reason: I wanted supporting evidence to go with my I-864. Although I have the co-sponsor, I took the extra step anyway. I wanted the visa officer to understand my situation is temporary and that my tax return does not reflect my normal salary or my ability to make income to support my beneficiary.

I know this is not your situation. Perhaps there is no issue with your salary. I only use it as an example to tell you. Some extra things you do now. Can save you some unexpected problem and grief later.

Sorry for the long reply. I hope you can understand my meaning and hope it can be helpful.

Best of luck and hope your mom can be with you soon.

I disagree. It is never a good idea to send information that you have not been asked for.

You didn't say that you received an RFE - have you, are they sending you one?

If not, why would you send additional information that they have not asked you for. It won't make anything faster, however it might mix them up and slow them down.
