I would like to know if anyone can tell me if I qualify to support my wife? I have an AIG of $17,200 but I also have $22,000 in my saving account. I am wanting to support my wife and she is by herself. No kids or anyone else. Can someone please tell me if I need to file anything other than a I-864 to file for her? Thanks for any help at all.

I have a similar question. What is the most important factor in proving that you can financially support a foreign spouse? I have about less than 10,000 in savings but I have had a good job for several years. Is being above the national poverty line with a good job enough proof without a co-sponsor? I would like to hear from some previously filers on how picky the NVC was when it came to financial support.

If you have 22,000 dollars in the bank according this info I found from travelstate.gov 22,000 = 4,000 actual dollars to your income which would bring your income to around 21,000. Please read this. I would say you meet the income guideline.

"The total net value of assets, less liens and liabilities against them, must equalfive times the difference between the sponsor's income and 125% of the poverty level for the household size.

Note, I don't know how hard your countrys Consulate is but my wife's from Vietnam and they been known to reject petitioners I-134 or 864's who barely qualified. I myself went out and got a 2nd job that put me well over the threshold. I didn't want to chance it or ask for a co sponsor(HCM, Vietnam rarely accepts co sponsors who do a K-1) .

Hope that helps you. Best of luck.......Rich

Current and continuing income is what matters, unless you are self employed. For a wage/salary earner then your annualized gross earnings is typically what is measured. Any income shortfall can be supplemented with assets (such as savings). These assets are considered at a 3:1 ratio, rather than 5:1, in your case as you are the petitioner. $22K in savings would equal $7K+ toward meeting the income requirement.

I trully thank all of you for your responses and it helped me a lot. Now the great news for me is that I email the US Embassy in Armenia with this information about my assets in the bank and they responded by saying that, that I totally meet the requirements in lue of this information. All I need to do is have my wife give them a copy of my bank statement and we will be good to go.

Again to all of you, thanks from my heart.
