Hi Everyone,

Dan's Interview is April 11 and I'm trying to get everything gathered up & ready, but I have some questions.

My income is just barely enough, so at the K-1 Interview we took an Affidavit of Support & tax records for Co-Sponsor from my Mom & Dad (just for back-up). And it's a good thing too because the CO ask for a Co-Sponsor.

So after we were married and filed for Adjustment of Status, we used my son's income (form I-864A) for Household Member Sponsor since he still lives at home with us. But he only works part time & goes to school. So I'm worried that that his income is not enough to satisfy them. So I'm wondering if I might need to take my Mom's Affidavit of Support & tax returns with me for back-up again. Which leads to my questions:

1.) How long was her first Affidavit Of Support good for? It has been less than a years since she signed it. She signed it last June. Can I just take a copy of it or do I need to get her to sign a new I-864?

2.) Since we filed for K-1 and Adjustment Of Status in 2005 is the 2004, 2003, and 2002 tax returns all we need since 2005 taxes are not due until April 15, & our Interview is (April 11) before April 15 , do I need her 2005 tax return?

3.) With my Mother Co-Sponsoring, does her income have to be 125% for 2 or 3 people? My father has his own income.

I hope this makes sense to everyone. And Thanks in advance for your answers & commits.

Thanks,

Mitzi

Hi Everyone,

So after we were married and filed for Adjustment of Status, we used my son's income (form I-864A) for Household Member Sponsor since he still lives at home with us. But he only works part time & goes to school. So I'm worried that that his income is not enough to satisfy them.

I really wish I could answer all these questions with quotes, but these are mostly my own opinions except for 2). :)

1. I would assume that it would be good for a year. If she signed it last June and she hasn't lost her job, been put on disability or otherwise impacted in her ability to sponsor your husband, you should be good. :) I wager you can take the copy you submitted with your AOS and be perfectly fine. That said, if she has had any serious changes, I would update the I-864 and have her sign it then bring it with you to the interview.

2. This was asked in another post today, and the general answer here is no, you don't need her 2005 tax return. However! I like to say "don't put off today what you can do tomorrow". If she has already intended to file for 2005 in the next fortnight, then it can't hurt to ask for a copy of the tax return if she can obtain it. More or less, if it is convenient, go ahead and get that extra bit of paper to tuck away.

3. I don't honestly know if it has to be for 2 or 3 people! I'd assume three, the size of the household, even if your father makes his own income. If for some reason he couldn't work, then she would probably have the fiscal responsibilities of the household. This is only a guess, though. I hope someone else can answer you with more concrete knowledge.

Good luck, from another Canadian. :star:
