Hey guys,

I need your help...

After filing the I-864 and DS-230 package @ NVC we received a checklist.

copy:

Checklist for I-864A (filed by MY NAME - BENEFICIARY )

NVC has reviewed the financial evidence submitted. However, additional information is required to

complete the financial evidence review. The checklist below indicates missing or incomplete

documents. In order to make corrections you will need to download a new form at

www.ImmigrantVisas.state.gov. You will need to complete and submit a new form with the changes

noted below. Please provide all requested documents and refer to page two for mailing instructions.

Supporting Documents missing or incomplete

[x] You must provide a copy of your most recent tax return from the country in which you filed if you

are exempt from filing income taxes under U.S. Federal tax laws for the most recent tax year.

Ok, this far not really a problem. I can send the I-864 again, but on the first line they mention I-864A, a form I did not submit, nor they request specifically.

To be sure, I am filling in the I-864A. On that form they request IRS-filings, but no foreign tax filing.

1. Can I leave this tax part empty and just attach my foreign tax documents?

2. on the assets part for this form, I've put all assets on my wife's I-864 (part 27.6), I assume I leave my lines blank to avoid confusion.

I hope my question is clear :)

If she is including your income to help meet requirements for the I-864, they want your tax documents for the country you filed. This may be why NVC is confused. They are asking for the I-864a because they think you are a US citizen contributing income. As the beneficiary, you are not. The reason being, your income can not be counted unless it continues after you immigrate to the U.S. Your assets do not count unless they an be easily converted into US funds and liquidated with in one year.

The I-864 is filled out by and signed by the petitioner, in this case your wife, with HER tax documents, income and assets. She must include the most recent complete IRS tax return, (W2s,and all schedules), proof of her current income and proof of the assets from the bank(s) holding such assets. Monthly statements are not accepted.

I would suggest your wife fill out an I-864 and leave your income off, because it does not count towards meeting the poverty level. If your wife is lacking enough assets, or she does not have income in the US, she will need to find a joint sponsor that is a US citizen, LPR or US national.

So, to be clear,

we resend the I-864, but I leave my income off.

We were allready filing with assets only, meaning checking, savings and real estate. i've put the total value on my wife's name, even tho it's 50/50 in reality. The assets will be liquidated for the immigration process.

If I don't mention my income on the new I-864, i do not have to send along my tax documents as I have no US income to show for. Just a new I-864.

Is that sufficient and correct? Do I have to send a new and complete copy of the first package sent, or just the new form?

Best regards,

knockse

Send a new form, leaving off your income. Be sure to include the barcode sheet and your wife should write a letter of explanation as to why she is sending a new I-864 and that NVC has the documents for the assets.

Remember the assets cash value must total 3 times the poverty level rule.

Well, everything is back out the door...

I've sent the new I-864 without my wages as they don't continue + my foreign tax filing. they won't be needing it, but if they need at least it won't cost me another UPS fee.

with that a letter to explain why we can't provide proof of domicile. We both live in Europe and we have to reestablish all ties to the States. i hope they except our story and the affidavit from the owners of the house we'll be staying at.

For the first the time during this story i have a feeling of uncertainty about what we have sent out to the NVC.

I hope it's over soon...

@ sheeshkabelle, thx for the help! :)
