14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband received a letter from the embassy in Jerusalem today marked section 221g with an X saying that:

PLEASE PROVIDE AN AFFIDAVIT OF SUPPORT I-864 from a joint sponsor that meets minimum poverty guideline requirements. Submitted I-864 for joint sponsor (name of the person)does not meet these requirement.

My husband went to his interview the past 10 days in Jerusalem,they told him everything is good but the Israel police certificate is missing , which he did one before the interview in a month and after the interview he went and did another one and still i dont know if the received the Israel police certificate or not. and just today we received this white paper marked with section 221g about the affidavit of support what should we do now? what does this actually mean?

Well it looks like they think you don't make enough money to sponsor so you need someone else. Were you close to the poverty line?

It means that the i864 you provided was not enough to support you both and he needs a joint sponsor and if you already submitted a joint sponsor with yours it was not enough either and you need to get another joint sponsor. Get a new joint sponsor ASAP send in the required documents and if that is all they need they will complete the case very soon. Good luck

it's not a denial... it's a put on hold until you submit new docs :)

It means that you do not meet the minimum income required to support your husband and they think he could possibly become a public charge. You need to get a joint sponsor who exceeds the minimum requirements in order for his visa to be issued. A joint sponsor can be any US citizen or legal permanent resident. You need someone in your family, or a friend who is willing to submit an affidavit of support. They need to do the same thing you did, fill out an I-864 along with the 3 last years of tax returns along with supporting evidence.

Well if you already have a joint sponsor, either they don't make enough money or there was something wrong with the paperwork.

Your affidavit of support is not considered fully legit which means your income is not meeting the requirements of 125% of the poverty line. Simply you need to find a co-sponsor to file another I-864 in order to pass the requirements.

it does not mean her affidavit of support isn't legitimate, it merely means her income isn't sufficient

what is the number that i can contact the embassy in Jerusalem to ask about this to get more information and to ask about the Israel police certificate?

how would I now this? Look at their website

Your own I-864 appears to be fine but your selected joint sponsor apparently does not qualify as the sponsor. Unless there is a significant change in that sponsor's income or assets, you'll need a new, better qualified joint sponsor.

The denial has nothing to do with your finances, as others incorrectly indicated. The 221g letter you quoted refers to the joint sponsor, not you.

Correct about the joint sponsor, but I would characterize all 221g ineligibility findings as visa denials. However, some are soft or temporary denials where an opportunity is made available for a short time to "overcome" the ineligibility/denial. Many 221 ineligibility notifications are "firm" and indicate the petition will be sent back with a recommendation USCIS revoke the petition approval.

In my mind, this is a "soft denial" that should be fairly easily overcome with either a corrected affidavit of support or a new one from a fully qualified sponsor.

You just need to look for another joint sponsor that meets the minimum guideline. It seems that you have passed the police certificate issue
