I-864 affidavit of support question

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My wife is filling out the forms to sponsor me to become a permanant resident. She got a job in Apr, 2012 and her current income for one month is about $2,400 which meets the requirement of the poverty guideline if counted as annual income. However, She didn't work from Aug, 2008 til Apr, 2012 due to . taking care of her son, his income for 2009 to 2012 were $0.00. He also joined the National Guard in Sep, 2011;

So.. my question is that should he have a joint sponsor to help him sponsor me?

Thank you in advice.

Your situation is similar to mine. My wife started working full time (well above poverty line) in March 2012. Before that she did work but only part time and did not make enough.

When I filed my petition she was my only sponsor and she filled out the I-864. She submitted her taxes from last year but since it showed that she did not make enough, we also submitted a letter from her employer stating her current salary. It didn't work for us. I got an RFE stating that she did not make enough (she did, we just didn't do a good job of proving it). I ended up getting a co-sponsor and it was fine from there.

So you might be able to show enough evidence that she makes enough now, but if you find a co-sponsor it will save you the headache.

Sounds alot like us! I worked FT as a LPN and went to school PT for a couple of years until last year, when I dropped to PT work and FT school. Graduated early Dec 2011 as RN, and started my new job late Dec 2011, so current income not reflected on last year's taxes. We just filed his AOS this month, so I have just over 8 months of check stubs showing I make well over the "limit", even for our family of 6. Got a letter from my employer, have check stubs, etc. We're guessing that by the time the interview rolls around we will probably have already filed this year's return, so are planning on taking that to the interview. Hopefully it will be enough because I'm not sure if I'll be able to find co-sponsor.... Guess no good deed (bettering yourself through education) goes unpunished! Hopeful anyways! :blush:
