Hiiiii

I am getting ready to send in our AOS stuff but I have a question. My brother is also sponsoring my husband.

The first question I have is in part one what do I check? Do I check "I am the only joint sponsor" or "I am the first or second of two joint sponsors"? If I shoudl check the latter am I the first and my brother is the second?

Also I was going to send all 3 years of my brothers taxes, however 4 years ago he was a student and didn't make more than the poverty level, but the last 2 years he is above it. Should I send all 3 years or just the last year?

Lastly, when I assemble all of this should I use an ACCO fastner for each application (EAD, AP, AOS) and put them all in the same envelope?

Thank you!

Hi- I am also sending my AOS/EAD packet soon and have a co-sponsor. As far as I understand, you need to check the box for "I am the petitioner" (the USC) and then your brother would check the box for "I am the only joint sponsor".

About the tax forms, I know you could only send the last one with the new form, but if you feel like sending more would help, sure.

I'm not sure how to assemble it, I was hoping I could get advice on that too!

Good luck- :)

You are the petitioner filing for the immigration of your relative and your brother will be the only joint sponsor (at least, this is how me and my cosponsor did it!). Also, send EVERYTHING they say to send as far as taxes go, send the past 3 years, W2's, 1099's, employer letter, etc etc, even if it says you may send it (which I took to mean you don't have to), DO send it all. We got an RFE like so many others for this stuff, so send all three years for both of you. Better safe than sorry, you can always include a letter saying he was a student and did not earn much income that year.

When we put it all together I did the AOS and EAD ACCO fastened seperately (we didn't do AP). The EAD one was really small but I wanted to keep them seperate. I can't remember who the checks were made out to, sorry!

All checks are made out to the Department of Homeland Security, right?

Thank you!

Sarah

Oh, and don't forget to include proof of citizenship for you and your cosponsor! Our RFE was for that too!
