I'm not an eligible sponsor for I-1864

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband and I just sent off a big fat visa packet at the beginning of Feb. I'm not worried about getting the I-130 approved, but when we get to the NVC and I have to sign the I-864 I'm SOL!!

I lived and worked in the US my whole life, but in March of 2010 I re-located to Costa Rica and started to work teaching English. Which means that my income doesn't qualify me to be a sponsor. My parents are pissed at me and won't joint sponsor my husband. None of my friends who are willing are also able (and vice versa).

So, the details are this:I made probably 30k in 2008, 45k in 2009 and 8k in 2010. I own a house (well, the bank owns it still but I make payments!) and a car in the U.S. I have a job offer in the U.S. and will probably return in May to start working. I'll earn about 45k also.

So, domicile won't be a problem, but I've got that one pesky year where my income doesn't qualify me... help!!

These are my ideas about how to meet the qualifications for the I-864:

1.)fabricate my 2010 taxes. Find some sleazy accountant to help me file 1099's that make it look like I earned more than I did. Then somehow (on my Costa Rica salary, which is already struggling to come up with the visa fees) come up with the back-taxes owed and pay them.

2.)enter illegally through Canada and have my husband hide in a closet until we can fix his papers

I am very open to other ideas. Very, very open.

I would simply move back to the USA and land a job that can provide support, if you have a job this may that can provide a letter indicating 45K then you should have no problems with the I-864.

Do not fabricate anything, file a 2010 IRS return reporting income last year.

you are kidding about the whole fabricating thing right???? bcuz that would just spell trouble for you

so just simply move back and get HR to write a job letter stating your position and the salary that you

will earn. do not do anything that you may regret.

best wishes.

just because the casefile made it to nvc -

doesn't mean you have to give them stuff, immediately.

You have about a year to get in 'stuff' to NVC -

suggest you get back to the USA after NOA-2, get that job,

and then sock away enough cash to make up the difference that you'll have

or

go through with nvc processing in 'real time'

use yer house as major asset with some letter of employment for the next job in usa.

ultimately, all is re-evaluated again on Interview Day -

so if you have major differences in the I-864 between NVC Submittal and Interview Day - it's OK ! Just have accurate, better numbers with a new I-864 handed in on interview day (emphasis on accurate, here)

Good Luck !

My case for 2010 income was very much the same. I spent 6 months in my husband's country and I came back to the US and worked half of the year. You will need to return to the US, find employment and when it is time for filing the I-864, you will provide a current letter from your employer stating what your salary is and current pay stubs submitted with the I-864. As long as your US income at that time is adequate, you should be fine - I was. You will ultimately file your taxes in the US for foreign income, and if it is lacking, all you will need to do is write a letter to add to the I-864 packet stating that you were outside of the country, but have a qualified 'current' income.

Good Luck!

Apologies if I state in a comment that my husband and I have been together for years & years. It's just that I can hardly remember a time when he and I were not together.

Ahhhhhhhhhh!!! We are currently in Administrative Processing with no time-lines to guide us!

My husband is looking at cars in Trinidad for me as his wish has come true! Me a Trini-Wife!

BUT

I will call DoS weekly to check the progress and I will not give up hope.

July of 2011 is the cut off date for us, when I will either start construction on a home here in the US or return to Trinidad to be with my husband.

The house can be used but will only help you if you have some significant equity in it.


May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
