Questions sponsoring family

Hello guys,

I have some questions regarding the sponsor process.

A short history of my case...I have applied for my family in 2009. On 09/2012 we have our interview at US consulate in Brazil.

We have our visa "denied" because I did not have tax returns. As I did not work and did not receive money, I did not file for tax returns.

The consul said to try to find a cosponsor for my case, in order to finish faster. All my documents (passport, birth certificate, etc) still with US consulate.

Well, I started working last year and have filed for 2012 tax returns, but for few dollars, I did not exceed the poverty guidelines. As I did not exceed, I will have to use some assets.

I have some money in my checking account, in US, but it is less than $10k and with only this amount I think will finish the case.

I, also, have some money in my account in Brazil. I know that we can use this money together.

How can I show this in I864? Do I need to sum US money + BR money and inform in 26a?

Or that money in Brazil is considered as sponsored immigrant asset and must be added in 28a?

I will send the package again to US consulate in Brazil to finish this process as soon as possible...

I think I have read about your case in the past. Didn't you file with assets in the past? Did they decide not to approve you with just your assets? For assets, I used the US and Brazil money together on the 864, but made a summary sheet so they could see what was US and Brazil at one glance. On the 864 I showed the money in US dollars.
