Affidavit of Support- not meeting poverty line

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

My husband does not meet the poverty line for the Affidavit of support because he is a student and I am planning on having a co-sponsor. My question is: Does my husband need to send all his tax information and employment letter (non-existant) besides the I-864 form? Or only the co-sponsor sends the tax returns and transcripts?

Any info on this would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much!

NVC topic,, MOVING...

I-864 needs at least a copy of past year's IRS return or simple IRS transcript, that is what the form's directions specify, the other items (pay stubs, employer letter) are suggestions, not requirements.

OUR TIME LINE Please do a timeline it helps us all, thanks.

Is now a US Citizen immigration completed Jan 12, 2012.

I sponsored my husband but as a student did not make enough so had a co-sponsor. I sent the form and evidence for myself, even though the money amount was not what they needed, to be more transparent. I would suggest he files the form, taxes, and a letter saying he is currently unemployed, date of graduation, maybe plans to get a job, something like that.

Note that the co-sponsor must show proof of US citizenship/residency, at the time of our interview they asked for co-sponsor passport copies, which we didn't notice earlier in the process.
