I-864: Letter from Employer

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm in Thailand and I did the DCF last week.

My uncle has completed an I-864 and provided all of the supporting documents to me.

The only problem is the letter from the employer verifying my uncle's employment. It is not in the below format the US CIS wants.

Instead, his employer provided him with what his company referred to as an, "Employee Data Report." This report shows the company address and telephone # and it is dated. But it's not signed by anyone nor is anyone's name and job title listed. It does have the dates employed and my uncle's job title. It does have his wage per month and per year. My uncle works for a very large corporation and the Employee Date Report is very official looking.

Question #1:

Is the US CIS strict about the format of the sponsor's letter of employment?

Question #2:

Is there any positive or negative consequence to having 2 sponsors?

A friend of mine has already provided me with a completed I-864 along with all of the supporting documents, all of which are perfect, including the Letter of Employment.

Question #3:

Would it be better if I only used my friend as a sponsor, because everything he submitted to me is correct? Or should I go ahead and submit both my friend's and my uncle's I-864 together?

I'm going to move this to the DCF forum. You should get better answers there.

The US Embassy, rather than the US CIS, handles everything associated with the I-864, which involves a sponsor's letter of employment.

The US Embassy in Bangkok finally replied to my questions.

Question 1: The Embassy does not have a specific format for a sponsor's "Letter of Employment"

Question 2: No

Question 3: it's a waste of time using 2 sponsors, if both of them, individually, meet or exceed the income requirements.
