Filed: Other Timeline

Hi everyone.



I have filled CR1 application for my wife and kids.



At this moment we are filling our form I-864 and i have a question.



I was out of the country for last four years and did not made enough money to file taxes. Now i am back, got a decent permanent good paying job which i started like three months ago. In this case can i do the affidavit of support my self or will i require a joint sponsor. as I dont have the tax returns for last three years.



Thank you so much for your help.

My suggestion is to get a joint sponsor.

You will need a joint sponsor unless you are using assets. Read the NVC wiki.

the person reviewing our case was not aware that the police certificate is not required at the NVC stage but they check listed us anyway. Had to have a supervisor remove that. NVC didn't like my husbands original birth cert so they made us get a certified copy from the registry in Costa Rica. The translations were fine. You no longer need certified translations. It can be informal.

The birth certificate checklist cost us a month at the NVC otherwise we would have been out of there in 30 days.

You will need a joint sponsor. They will want to see income from 2013. You cannot use foreign income. You will also have to write a letter explaining why you didn't file taxes. I am not a tax expert but I am thinking you still should have filed your taxes even though you were living abroad. That may become an issue . Maybe someone else will chime in who knows about taxes and filing from abroad.
