Will a Need a Sponsor

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've submitted the i-864 and all of my husbands other paperwork to the NVC since 12/15. I'm wondering if it will come back saying we need a sponsor (or at his interview they will request this). The total number in our household is 4 (me, my husband and 2 children).

This is what I've submitted.

. Current income amount stated on I-864 is $42,000 ($36,000 Self-employment salary, plus $6,000 child support)

. Self-employment letter stating that I am paying myself an income of $36,000 for 2010

. Letter from a client saying that they paid me $42,000 for 2010 (I'm only claiming $36,000 as amount paid to me)

. Business Certificate showing that I've been in business since 2001

. 2009 copy of my Business Taxes to show that I paid myself

. Proof of child support receipt for the last 3 years

. 4 months bank statements showing child support credited to my bank accout

. Child support award letter showing the award amount is $184 a week

. 2009 Transcipt (income 1040 line 22 amount is $24,000)

. 2008 income 1040 line 22 amount is $25,000

. 2007 income 1040 line 22 amount is $35,000

My concern is that 2008, 2009 are below the poverty lines. I write off alot of business expenses. These amount do not include child support of approximately $8,000 just income I paid myself from the business.

I asked a sister to be a sponsor and she didn't feel comfortable with it because she lives in another state and hasn't met my husband.

I want to be pro-active, because I of course, want my husband to be here as soon as possible.

Do you think they will ask me to have a co-sponsor?

Would it be helpful to file 2010 taxes as soon as possible, and write off less income so that my gross income is at least $30,000. Will this prevent them from asking for a joint sponsor.

I've been losing sleep over this, so your opinion will be greatly appreciated.

Wait for NVC to accept or request a joint sponsor. Typically the consulate wont request a joint if NVC accepts the I-864.

Moving to NVC forum.

They will consider your current income to be what is on line 22 of the 2009 individual tax return. That's the way it works for the self-employed. If your $6,000 child support is court ordered, you can add that for a total of $30,000, 3k over the minimum requirement.

Yes, I would file for 2010 ASAP, show more income and provide a whole new I-864 and supporting documents for your spouse to carry to the interview.

You may well be required to submit a corrected I-864 to NVC because you misstated your current income. Again, current income for the self employed comes from line 22 of the last filed tax return.
