Received I-864 Checklist

Hi everybody,

I received a checklist the other day regarding the I-864 for my parents. I am the petitioner and I have zero income for the whole year of 2010. My wife and I filed jointly in 2010. All of the 105K in that year is her income. In Part 25 of my I-864, I indicated $0.00 as income in 2010 and my wife indicated 105K as income for 2010 in her I-864A.

The checklist states:

"Part 6 Sponsor's Income and Employment

[x] {MY NAME}'s income indicated on the I-864 Part 25 does not correspond to that shown

on the most recent tax return and W-2(s).

I called NVC and an operator suggested that I should send a letter explaining that I did not have income in 2010 and the amount indicated in the submitted ITR is all my wife's. Not convinced, I hang up the phone and called again. This time another operator told me that I should have indicated 105K in Part 25 instead of zero. Now confused, I asked for the Supervisor. She told me that she will request for the file and re-evaluate it. Now I am waiting.

If we have a similar case, what did you do in your case?

Hi everybody,

I received a checklist the other day regarding the I-864 for my parents. I am the petitioner and I have zero income for the whole year of 2010. My wife and I filed jointly in 2010. All of the 105K in that year is her income. In Part 25 of my I-864, I indicated $0.00 as income in 2010 and my wife indicated 105K as income for 2010 in her I-864A.

The checklist states:

"Part 6 Sponsor's Income and Employment

[x] {MY NAME}'s income indicated on the I-864 Part 25 does not correspond to that shown

on the most recent tax return and W-2(s).

I called NVC and an operator suggested that I should send a letter explaining that I did not have income in 2010 and the amount indicated in the submitted ITR is all my wife's. Not convinced, I hang up the phone and called again. This time another operator told me that I should have indicated 105K in Part 25 instead of zero. Now confused, I asked for the Supervisor. She told me that she will request for the file and re-evaluate it. Now I am waiting.

If we have a similar case, what did you do in your case?

from my understanding of the I-864, in part 25 you would enter the gross income of your Federal Tax Return. since you filed a joint return, it would be your combined income. you should enter 105k. it doesn't matter if you had no income. in question 24a you entered your zero for your income, 24b 105k for your wife's income. 25c 105k for household income. you mentioned you submitted a I-864a, which is required when using a household members income.

someone correct me if this information is incorrect.

Thanks for the reply. That is what the second representative told me. And the first one said that I send a letter explaining the situation. Anybody in a similar situation?
