Hi, so my husband (USC) was just graduated from college and was unemployed when we started the process. He filed the affidavit of support with zero income with his father co-sponsoring me. Things have changed since then and now he has a job.

My interview is coming up next month. Should I bring copy of his pay stubs or something like that?

pay stubs and employment letter and a new I-864, since 'all is new' from the time the I-864 was first submitted.

Plan on keeping the co-sponser, though.

Good Luck !

Thank you for your reply.

We're keeping the co-sponsor for sure.

My husband has just finished the 2 months trial period and got hired officially from May. 1st month was a part time and the 2nd month was full time. For that two months, he worked for minimum wage. This is his first job ever and now he gets a little over minimum. They go by hour, by the way. He never filed tax before.

In this situation, I wonder how to calculate his current individual annual income (I-864, 23)...

Photocopies of paystubs are fine. Many people don't ever receive an "original" paystub because they receive their pay thru direct deposit. I'm one of them.

Figuring his current annual income is determined by $?/hr x ?hrs/wk x 52wks/yr. If he makes $8/hr and works 40hrs/wk, do the math on that x 52wks/yr. Whatever you list as his income, make sure you have proof to back that number up. Paystubs, letter from employer, etc.

Regardless of all of that, in your case, your co-sponsor's documentation will probably be more important. Photocopies of supporting documentation should be fine, but I-864 needs an original signature.

Thank you for the reply. Ok so for my husband, I fill bring the signed original and new I-864, copy of pay stubs, and a company letter.

Now I have a question about the co-sponcer. Does he need a new I-864 as well?? Is that what you said? His financial situation hasn't been changed and we submitted all the supporting documents (tax return, business license etc) already?

Thanks for your help.

We filed it with 2009-2011 tax year info on the co-sponser.

So we need his latest 2012 tax data as well, is that right?

I didn't know that. Thank you so much for telling me this.

Then of course we need to edit and update his I-864 and submitted at the interview as well, correct?

I'm so worried about this.

Just be prepared for the interview and bring photocopies of it all. 2011 year tax returns for the co sponsor and just a few weeks paystubs from your husband. Things have changed but not for the bad! Congratulations and try to relax about the immigration. The hardest part is over and you two are doing fine. There may be a small bump at the interview as they digest the new numbers or it may go smooth and no problems.

Just try to enjoy your new lives together!! It'll be fine and your real journey together will be beginning!

Best of luck,

Bob

Ok everyone, so here is my one last question.

Does my co-sponsor need to modify his I-864 (item # 25 Federal income tax return information) and re-submit it at the Embassy since the new tax year has passed?

I will bring his tax report for year 2011.
