Few questions regarding I-864.

1. Part 5. Sponsor's Household Size

A. Persons you are sponsoring in this affidavit: 1

B. Yourself 1 [Persons not sponsored in this affidavit]

C. If you are currently married, enter "1" for your spouse. [What do I enter here? if I enter 1 since I am married and petitioned for my husband, it would make total 3].

23. My current individual annual income is:

I only got a permanent job in June 2012. Before that I had been working temp jobs and did not have sufficient income on my own.

Let's say my current monthly income is not same each month, it varies due to Overtime. Example: Made $1573.86 in July, $2523.20 in August and $1080.17 in first two weeks of September and next paycheck coming on September 28. How shall I calculate my individual annual income? Take the maximum and x 12 / take the minimum and x 12 or do take average of 3 months income (3 months income /3) x 4 ?

Q: I was studying and was in between jobs back in 2010 so my tax returns for 2010 are not that bright. Will that effect my petition at time of interview?

Q: Do I need to send a copy of my birth certificate to NVC as a proof of my US citizenship?

Q: Should I need a Co-Sponsor, does the Co-Sponsor also need to provide his/her birth certificate as a proof of US citizenship?

Q: I do not have a W-2 for current year because it is only given at end of the year. Should I need to provide it before end of the year, what can be done?

Q: What is the current fee for AOS? $70 or $88?

You are sponsoring your spouse. They are already accounted for in 21a. 21c is 0.

23. My current individual annual income is:

I only got a permanent job in June 2012. Before that I had been working temp jobs and did not have sufficient income on my own.

Let's say my current monthly income is not same each month, it varies due to Overtime. Example: Made $1573.86 in July, $2523.20 in August and $1080.17 in first two weeks of September and next paycheck coming on September 28. How shall I calculate my individual annual income?

Average your paychecks over the period of time that you have been working. Then use that average per pay period to calculate a 52 week income.

Q: I was studying and was in between jobs back in 2010 so my tax returns for 2010 are not that bright. Will that effect my petition at time of interview? It should not.

Q: Do I need to send a copy of my birth certificate to NVC as a proof of my US citizenship? Attaching a copy of your b/c or passport bio page is a safe thing. Why risk an RFE for something so small?

Q: Should I need a Co-Sponsor, does the Co-Sponsor also need to provide his/her birth certificate as a proof of US citizenship? Yes, any sponsor must prove that they are a US citizen or Green Card holder.

Q: I do not have a W-2 for current year because it is only given at end of the year. Should I need to provide it before end of the year, what can be done? Submit copies of recent paystubs along with an employer letter to support your income claim.
