Definitely take advantage of your trip to get your hubby's docs in order! There are a few things he's going to need to get, so I would definitely try to get it done soon, considering some countries take a while to get police records, or birth certificates.

Here's a super helpful link that outlines the NVC process and all the necessary docs.

Maybe before you go, you can try to get your AOS paperwork so that way if your case number and payments come through while you're abroad, you can send them out immediately? Just a thought. Good luck! smile.png

D'oh! Sorry! laughing.gif

Your Dad should also get his pay stubs for the last six months, an employment letter from his boss, and some way to prove his US citizenship (a photocopy of his passport would work just fine). Also, even though your Dad is your co-sponsor, you still have to fill out the I-864 like him, and (assuming you're employed) provide all the same documents as him.

yeah my dad is the business owner so Im assuming the pay stubs and employment letter etc isnt needed he will just need to prove he is the owner and provide taxes for it right? I do not work so I will fill out the I-864 and he will do the I-864A since we will be in his household and he will have to make 125% more than the poverty line. Ill get him to copy his passport.

Your dad will fill also fill out an I-864, not an I-864A. I-864 is for combining income and you don't have any income (per your admission) to combine.

I should have asked that...I thought it was the 864A but now I know its not! Thanks for the correction! :)

True...Im going to start printing on whatsapp conversations and when I sent her money and stuff to show our relationship over the past 9 months ive been gone and plane tickets from before and also this trip as well. Ill see if she ever took any pics with my grandfather while visiting him a few times. Thanks a bunch!

I went through Jordan and I am friends with many others who have also been through Jordan. Not one of us was asked for supporting evidence at the interview(I was at the interview with hubby), so if you are thinking about printing a million pages of skype, whatsapp, email ect to bring to the interview it is a waste of time, I would bring a little supporting evidence, maybe some pictures and a few pages of other correspondence, but other than that it isn't needed, 99% the CO won't even ask. This is a complete list of everything you will need at the Amman Embassy, this is a country specific list so make sure you check and recheck it, there are things on this list that are not required for other countries. http://jordan.usembassy.gov/iv_documents_required.html

You will send only copies of the originals to the NVC in PDF form, as Amman is 100% electronic consulate, and your wife must bring all original copies PLUS a photocopy of each thing to the interview. Best of luck and if you have an further questions feel free to inbox me. Everyone at the embassy in Amman is kind, considerate and very professional, your wife will have a good experience there.

I don't know where you get your information, but six months of pay stubs are not required. A letter from the employer and/or a few months pay stubs are sufficient. On my husband's I-864(he is from Jordan) all I had was an employment letter with my salary and conformation I worked there and for how long I was employed, no pay stubs.

Just passing along information from the guides posted here on VJ, along with what Saylin recommends. Better to be over prepared than be missing evidence. good.gif

My pleasure. Enjoy your time in Jordan, I am so jealous that you are going, my husband and I are dying to go back for a visit but he can't get time off form work yet. I love Amman this time of year, the weather is warm but not so hot that you cannot go outside, the jasmine and gardenias are blooming, everywhere you go you can smell their fragrance wafting in the air, I miss the open produce and spice markets, the dead sea, the hustle and bustle of the city. I could go on forever... *sigh*
