Letter of Employment- business stationary?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife needs to get a letter of employment from her boss.

He asked her what it needs to say, and when she mentioned that it has to be on business stationary, he told her he doesn't have any.

When he needs to write a business letter, which is rare, he just uses a large rubber stamp with the name, address and phone number on it!

Will this be acceptable? If not, what should we do?

We'll be submitting her pay stubs, but we're concerned about getting an RFE for something avoidable.

The store has things like a tobacco license, retail food license etc, should we make copies of this type of thing so they can see that it's a real business?

Read I-864 instructions, it saye you MAY include it, it does not say you MUST, Employer letter is optional and they give you a suggested format.

I would use what you have, it sounds satisfactory..

Well the problem is that my wife has just had a pay raise, so we need the letter.

Before the pay raise, her income was too low to sponsor me, in fact the reason we're applying now is the fact that she's just had this raise.

By the time we send it off, she'll have maybe two or three pay stubs to send off with it, but we really need this letter explaining that she has just had a raise and what her new earnings will be.

Hi there, I just went through the same thing you're going through now and in my opinion business stationery isn't just the paper and envelope, the stamp is as well because it has information pertaining to that business and I see no reason why that wouldn't be good enough. I think USCIS knows that not all business can afford the luxury of having their own stationery so you'll be just fine...hope that helps, good luck to you and your wife!

Yes I suppose the rubber stamp is a type of stationary.

If someone was making a fake letter of employment, it would be far easier to make a fake logo or letterhead on a computer than go to the trouble of having a custom rubber stamp made up...

I guess that and the pay stubs should show the authenticity.

We just don't want to take any chances with silly delays.

If you are on good terms with the employer, maybe have him include a statement like "Feel free to call with any questions." Then if they have a problem with it, they can do their own verification. I wouldn't worry about it too much though. The letter and some new paystubs showing the raise should corroborate the evidence. Good luck.
