Financial - husband with no income but co-sponsor available

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Kind of hard to write a good topic title. For the years we've been living in Sweden I (the Swede) have been the only one with an income, since my husband has not had an income he has not filed taxes (as its not needed). Now that we are planning to move back again my father in law will be co-sponsor for me, again, but I was still pondering about my husband though. Does he still need to get papers from the tax office to "prove" he has no income and has not had any?

The co-sponsor will cover me just fine, just pondering the legality of it all. We previously did DCF, that option doesnt exist for us Swedes now unfortunately and it seemed quite a bit easier then since the embassy helped out quite a bit with the questions and what not ;)

This is from the I-864, Affidavit of Support instructions: "If you were not required to file a Federal income tax return under U.S. tax law because your income was too low, attach a written explanation." Your husband will still have to fill out an I-864 and so will the joint sponsor. But it seems like explaining his situation will be enough for them. Good luck!
