Hello Everybody!

First of all, a big thank you to everybody for their contributions. I hope I'll be able to give back soon as well!

My latest tax return is 2009 which was filed with my ex-wife. What amount will they count, my income alone of the return since we are divorced or all of it as it was filed "married filling jointly"? I filed 2010 and 2011 (but with no income as I've been on a leave of absence living with my spouse in France).

If they count all of it ($70k) and I get it right, does that mean I meet the guidelines which are set at $18,912 per year ($56,736 for the 3 years)? Should I get a sponsor to "beef up" the file since I've had no income for the past 2 years (my wife has been running the household since then...)?

In advance, many grateful thanks to everybody for their time and help!

Ben

2009 does not matter. Current and continuing income is what is evaluated.

With zero current income you will need a joint sponsor that meets the income requirement for their household plus the intending immigrant.

Thank you for your quick response!

Makes sense...

If the sponsor is married filling jointly, do we need to include the husband's pay stubs and income verification?

The intending immigrants income will not count towards the I-864 income requirement unless that income source will continue after the immigration. BUT his assets do count.

To make things clear, if I have no income (haven't had in 3 years), but my wife has in her checking account €70,000 (approximately $89000 USD), then that would waive the requirement to have a sponsor? Or is the fact I have no current income the trigger for a sponsor in the US with income?

Thanks for all your help and time!!
