Life After Noa2 ?? Financial questions

Well, we all wait with great eagerness for that ol' NOA2. Then 'Post NOA2 Limbo' arrives with its own tensions--waiting--and QUESTIONS!

I have a financial scenario I'd appreciate your comments upon:

I am self employed in construction. Income varies from year-to-year. I am also remodeling the house that I own (major project) in my 'spare' time. In the last two years I've taken off from work many days per month to work on the house. Consequently my income is way down.

Last years (2005) 1040 tax form shows me a slightly BELOW the requisite $16,500 (125% of poverty rate).

However--THIS year--2006-- I'll be around $36,000+ --well over the poverty bottome line. My BANK statement/summary will show this income but I don't have a 1040 to back it up yet of course.

Also--even though lots of money came in---most of it went back OUT again---sunk into building materials etc--so I'll only have 7 or 8 thousand in the bank---my true "savings account" is the house in which I have about $50,000 in equity.

Question---- will this 'fly' ? Will I be considered as having enough to support my fiancee--with low income on last year's tax form and small savings?

My best friend earns a MUCH higher salary and I'm sure he would be willing to co-sponser my fiancee---should I just play it safe and go ahead and have him do that considering the circumstances?

Thanks Friends!

John-

I just heard that Morocco doesnt ask for the affidavit of support, at least that what i heard its been like this for a real short time i am going to call and check on it in the morning... i just checked under the embassy info at top of page, and checked under ukrain. thats right your fiancee is from there and it doesnt say anything about the affidavit of support. i was told that they now ask for it when u adjust status in the U.S.... my best thouhgt is to call the ukrain embassy and check that out, dont for get to use your assets!!!

best of luck!!

You can download Packets 3 and 4 and check them out.

• 7. EVIDENCE OF SUPPORT FOR FIANCE(E) VISA APPLICANTS: Any evidence from your American spouse/fiancé(e) which will show the consular officer that you and members of your family who will accompany you will not become public charges while in the United States. Documentation regarding financial support can be in any form – preferably three years of tax returns, bank statements, earning statements, letters from employers. PRESENTING ONLY THE AFFIDAVIT OF SUPPORT I-134 FORM IS NOT SUFFICIENT. The I-864 form is not required for a fiancé(e) visa.

From their instructions (downloadable file found there).


I only offer advice - not even legal. Just the plain and simple kind.
