I-134 Change of job cant support?

Timeline

Im a mess right now and dont know what to do, I am the petitioner my job just informed me they are moving me to a commission based sales position after 5 years of salaried work where i made $24,000 per year or $500 per week to the new structure of $200 per week gross + commission on sales. I am greatly worried that i will not be able to make my annual salary up on the commission part in this new division or even the poverty level for 2 people. I am maybe just months away from my fiancees I-129 F approval and my boss told me he will write any letter i need stating i still make $24,000 per year. I submitted 3 years worth of tax records to support this fact so i want to know what my options are.

#1 Stay with this company and act like i make the same salary. (Not sure if this is an option, do i have to show paystubs and bank statement at visa interview or are my tax records sufficient enough?) If i have to show paystubs she can potentially say im on a commission base and i had a bad couple months?

#2 Find a new job different company(Can i still be the sponsor if i make over the poverty line on a new job?) Or will the lack of history with the new job be a problem?

#3 Try and get my Sister and her Husband to sponsor my Fiancee <-This can be combined with option 1 or 2

Please help, im desperate and not sure what to do at the moment!

Hi Mike. #1 - You are not required to show a Bank Statement if your last 3 years TRANSCRIPTS are over the Poverty Line. #1- Stay with the Company.. They would not have kept you as an Employee if you did'nt make them Money. #1- Your paystub(s) will reflect your Earnings. #1- Even if you sold Nothing on a Commission basis, the Employer is required to pay : Base Minium Wage . $200.00 a week ... No No No. Hindi! DO NOT Have the Employer write a letter you make the same Salary. It will show.

#2- Same as #1.... Stay with that Company as long as you can see the future is bright and make Current Income Requirements which is about $ 9.50 an hour. The lack of job history will start when you quit your job. I don't know what you do for a living but if they paid you Salary for 5 years you did something right. ARE YOU SURE THE STRESS OF USCIS Has'nt Distracted your Job?

#3- Only if neccesary. Mike you know the Phils don't like to see a Co-Sponsor (but a Immediate Family member maybe accepted)

Power To You. Your a Man.. You have to call the Shots so your Honey gets Approved.

Good Luck.... TIM

I'd go with # 3! Seems to be the safest and easiest alternative!

I confirmed my Sisters Husband will Sponsor my Fiancee but what would he need to do, does he have to send tax records, bank statements, and paystubs to my Fiancee when she has her interview scheduled? I think looking for another job is definitely an option i just need opinions and ideas. Also my brother in law makes enough to cover his household of 4 + my fiancee, hes not required to cover me correct?

Your Human Resources Department could also write. Mike has been Employed with us since ? He is a good Employee and our average sales person in his department makes an average of : $ . We are sure Mark will attain this. I JUST WANNA SEE YOU GET APPROVED.

Selling Ice Cream in Alaska is like selling hot chocolate in the Philipphines. Good Luck Mark

Not for Manila, it isn't . This is the kind of circumstance under which they are unlikely to accept a cosponsor.

Best to go with a variation of option 1. State your current income by taking your year to date income and calculating what it will be at the same rate for the next twelve months. For example, if you've earned $12,000 by the end of June, your current earnings are $24,000 a year and so on. Document "current income" with pay stubs and/or employer letter. Your tax returns are about past income, not current income.

Hello Tim, Are you sure i dont have to show bank statements, and if hypothetically i dont make any commissions in this new division will my sponsorship be denied? If so i would rather go with a co-sponsor. $200 a week will not meet the minimum poverty level if i had to show my pay stubs.

If i have a co-sponsor my lack of job history shouldnt matter correct? and to be honest i dont see a bright future with this company anymore with sales in a decline i kinda seen this coming.

Also FYI My Fiancee is in Cayman Islands working and will have her interview in Jamaica dont think the co-sponsor thing is an issue there?

OK Mike. This is where YOU NEED THE HELP of someone MORE QUALIFIED than me. The I-134, the I-184. ? I won't guess about this if the Co-Sponsor Route is your Choice. I'm Unqualified to answer this.

You will get alot of replies "Trust Me" Be sure and look at opinions objectively and trust what you feel.

My question would be: You started the K-1 alone and need a Possible Co-Sponsor at the Interview. No, don't make sense? They will do a background check on the Co-sponsor to which means HUGE Delays.

Let some Informative suggestions come to you in this matter. I don't know it all Mark.

Probably not an issue then. So do as I described (unless you find a new job) and add a cosponsor if needed.

Members will argue the fact you don't even need transcripts, some will say you don't have to do this or that.

If she is Coming from Jamaca then: A Jamacan is best to reply than me.

(Funny, she looked Pinay) I'm going Nuts. LOL

May I suggest kindly that if you are not qualified to answer, you read instead of post. That way, you'll learn something. K visas use the I-134. Never heard of an I-184. Perhaps you were thinking of an I-864? Read and learn, ok?

No, he is not required to cover you, only his household and the beneficiary.

I think you could get things together to have a co-sponsor, just in case, but also apply #2 and see if you can find a better job in the meantime. If you find a job that will cover the poverty level, then great! If not, then you have papers prepared and ready to go with the co-sponsor route.

By the way, I have never heard of "HUGE" delays for using a co-sponsor. You just need to send proof they are a USC or permanent resident.

Probably not an issue then. So do as I described (unless you find a new job) and add a cosponsor if needed.

My current pay stubs going forward will only show $200 per week and i work for a private company who writes my company checks by hand, i dont get a pay stub that shows amount of taxes paid or my YTD earnings. Yes i can show YTD Earning with my bank statements but when i show my current checks are only $200 per week how do i explain that? It would be obvious i am no longer making $24,000 per year?

If i found a new job and made enough to sponsor my Fiancee can i still sponsor her even with lack of work history Ex: only 2 months on the job or will i still need a cosponsor?

Can they deny for financial reasons based on only my cosponsors income even he he makes twice the amount need to qualify because i dont have a job or am not making as much as before?

thank you for your help!
