Couple 864,230 & 3032 Questions

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi i'm getting my 864, 230 and 3032's ready for the NVC process and have a couple questions. My DH recently visited me in the states and I had him fill out the 230, and 3032 here pre NOA2 and sign them and have some questions about that as well as the 864:

DS 230 & 3032

1. Is there a specific way he needed to fill out the 3032, 230?? i.e. blue/black ink. On the 864 instructions it says to use capital letters if typing responses and my husband didnt do this for the 3032,230. On areas that didnt have enough room for typing he printed out in blue ink. Should we be okay here?

2. On the 230 one of the questions asks to list the previous visits to the United States and my DH listed the most recent visits however he has visited several times before those. Does he need to list every single visit from birth to now??

I 864

3. When it asks the annual income is this GROSS or NET?

4. I will be providing a letter of employment and last 4 months of pay stubs (cannot provide 6 since I've only been employed last 4 mo's) along with my last 3 years of transcripts. Do they want the original pay stubs or can i make copies??

5. I make about $200 in cash tips each month. How do I go about proving this since it does not show on my paystubs??

It is recommended to type or write using black ink in CAPITALS

2. On the 230 one of the questions asks to list the previous visits to the United States and my DH listed the most recent visits however he has visited several times before those. Does he need to list every single visit from birth to now??

Yes, he should. Additional paper is needed if the space fills up.

I 864

3. When it asks the annual income is this GROSS or NET?

Gross Income

4. I will be providing a letter of employment and last 4 months of pay stubs (cannot provide 6 since I've only been employed last 4 mo's) along with my last 3 years of transcripts. Do they want the original pay stubs or can i make copies??

Copies of paystubs are fine.

5. I make about $200 in cash tips each month. How do I go about proving this since it does not show on my paystubs??

There is no way. If you show it on W2 or paystub, it would become taxable.

Other option is put this money in the bank. Then 33% (assuming the petitioner is USC) of this cash asset can be used in I-864.
