hey eveybody -

long story short. normally it takes 6 7 weeks for morocco to give you an interview date. my fiance has one on jan 23rd, he got it today. in 2012 i didnt work so i made no income and ive worked this year - but due to a bunch of legal issues with my employer - they did not report paying me to the IRS. additionally, when paying me, they didn't provide check stubs. they illegally classified me as an independent contractor per IRS guidelines. I started my own business last month and i JUST made the minimum to sponsor him. Due to my tax situation with my previous employer - i made the minimum but even if i went and got my taxes done tomorrow it would be extremely hard to prove that with a tax return - and they didn't give me any check stubs like i said. really the only thing i can think of is sending them a copy of all my bank deposits to prove that i made the minimum amount for the year... to show i deposited that much in my account over the course of the year. any other ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.... thanks so much everyone!!!

i had my interview last Dec and the consulate asked me to bring tax money of 2012 and on that year my wife didnt make enough to be my sponsor but i took the pay stubs of 2013 and she was making more than enough to support me BUT the consulate refuse the pay stubs they said that they need tax papers not pay stubs. but i was prepare for that cause i had papers of co-sponsor. they are not going to accept the pay stubs they want TAX papers.

Co-sponsor doesn't have to be a family member. Any US citizen over 18 that's above the necessary income level and is willing to sign on will do the trick.

I think you are in a very tough situation.

Even if you made a ton of money and can show bank transactions to clearly show it,

its still a big problem if you didn't properly filed tax and reported them to IRS.

At a minim, you are admitting that you've evaded paying taxes to US government,

regardless of whether the company you worked for were bad folks and didn't give you proper 1099.

Its totally your responsibility to report all incomes.

Without clear demonstration of financial strength on your own, you will have to find a co-sponsor,

but who's going to risk their finances to co-sponsor, because if marriage goes sour, the co-sponsor

is liable to financial support.

Co-sponsoring is a serious matter that comes with all risks and little to no reward in return for them.

My sister's brother-in-law petitioned for his fiancee with the help of his dad's co-sponsorship,

but now they are in the process of getting a divorce, and the lawyer is informing him that his father could very well

be on the hook to provide financial support either as part of the divorce settlement,

or afterwards via law suit.

If you are not lucky enough to find a co-sponsor, you will have to delay the petition until

you get your finances in order...by filing sufficient income to IRS.

Best of luck.

thanks for the help everybody. i do know about the cosponsoring and all that, but like john says nobody wants to sign on to do that. they run for the hills.

John have you looked at the calender date today? before you jump off a cliff please realize it's the 6th of the year, i got the interview date TODAY for the 23rd, and this is the start of the new working year. anyone i know involved in the tax business did not start back to work - they were supposed to start back today, but due to severe weather conditions all over the state they've been unable. because of my specific situation, i'm unable to use any sort of software such as turbo tax, because when i search my social security number because they didn't have a tax ID number the IRS doesn't even KNOW they paid me any money, because for all the IRS knows they don't even exist. so tax evasion is really, silly. thanks!

If you can't sponsor him you will receive a 221G at the interview for more financial information or a co-sponsor. I believe you have up to a year after that to provide the information or the petition is cancelled.

No you are not going to get 221G at the interview if the consulate believe all is good and you need just co-sponsor they will give your fiancee paper said what papers he need to have and after he get what they ask for he need to go back to the consulate and give them those papers and wait for a phone call. you need to have co-sponsor you can ask your fiancee if he know some Moroccan in US but they need i think be citizen, or if you know any immigrant people cause they know what co-sponsor mean because people get scare of be a co-sponsor but there is no worries. believe in ALLAH keep praying and inshae allah there will be a way.
