Affadavit of Support worries hellpp please

Hello Everyone,

I know what is required for the Affadavit of Support >> 125% of the poverty guideline, which for 1 is like $13,000. I make an annual salary of over $30,000, but I just started this job about 4 months ago. My past three years of tax forms are very low income because I was a full time student, still living with Parents, and then joined the Peace Corps where I was a volunteer and made NO money.

Will my support be denied to my fiance based on past years income? Or do you think I will be okay if I can prove my current income is over 30K and I am in good standing with my employer? I don't have a co-signer.

Please help, any advice will be appreciated! Thanks!

It's up to the consular officer to make that call, but most will accept current income if you can prove it's sufficient, and if you can convince them it's likely to continue for the foreseeable future. This means save your paystubs, and get a letter from your employer stating that you're a full-time permanent employee.

can amass cash assets, at all?

IMO, a savings account of 60,000 usd trumps much silliness


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

Best Answer and make best sense. If it will be 9 to 10 months until the affidavit is needed as well. Also, you said in school. Did you get a degree/associates to present and would that be applyable to your Currant Job. If you meet the eligibility of what Jim posted above I think you will be fine.

Oh that's a really good Idea. Or, provide both I guess? I have a Bachelor's Degree and can prove it, obviously. I can also prove my service in the Peace Corps. I think that should be sufficient. Thanks everyone!

It's a numbers game. You either meet the current income requirement or your don't. From what you've told us here you earn enough money. Support your earnings claim with an employer letter and recent paystubs.

Later at the adjustment of status phase (when filing the I-864 affidavit of support) you will need to explain if you were not required to file a tax return for any of the 3 preceding years. See the form I-864 instructions for an explanation of what the sponsor must submit in this case. It wouldn't hurt to prepare the statement now.

Well, I did file taxes, I just didn't make above the poverty guideline for a household of 1. I made a little and got all my money paid back on tax returns. I just wasn't sure if the low income would be a problem.

I'll definitely go ahead and prepare something though, explaining I was a full time student and a full time volunteer. Thanks!

You have already submitted biographical info that lists what you have been doing during the past 5 years.

What you need to prove is that you now (2011) earn enough to me the income requirement for a household of 2 (unless you have children or dependents then the number is higher). Past income is not an important issue.
