Welcome to VJ.

Firstly, yes it's normal for it to take this long.

It doesn't look to me like your husband needs to show any assets.

You can use child support as income if you can verify its amount and consistency.

Retirement can be used as long as you can verify its amount and consistency.

The asset rule is now 3 times the shortfall, not 5 times.

You should report it to the IRS, so it should show up on your tax returns. :D

Child support is not taxabe, so it won't be on her tax return.

Receipts are good.

Do you deposit the money to your bank? I included bank statements and highlighted the deposit. The deposit amount matched the amount in my divorce decree, so it was easily correlated.

It's not? I could have sworn I saw a space for it on my 1040. Maybe it's alimony I'm thinking of, or child support paid OUT as opposed to child support received.

*is not an accountant* :blush:

Your receipts may be adequate. The deposit/bank statement thingy would have just been cake icing.

In your situation, providing all income met the levels (which for the I-134 is actually NOT 125% of the poverty guideline, but the guideline itself) I would suggest you prepare an affidavit with your details and have your husband present it at his interview.

Also prepare an affidavit from your parents, and have him carry that along in case they question the adequacy of yours. He can then produce it if needed.

Which is what I did in London, and my father's affidavit was not asked for.
