K1 poverty line

Remember to calculate your household size properly. You have to include LPR's you have sponsored before that are still subject to their I-864 if any, children or dependents, yourself, and your fiance when calculating the household size.


This does not constitute legal advice.

Quick question: i was in school all of 2012 and 2013.. therefore my income for those years was not much. However, in 2013, by the time i graduated til the end of the year i was able to make enough to meet the k1 poverty line requirement. I guestimate that by the time my fiance receives his visa i will have filed 2014 taxes and for 2014 i meet the requirement for both k1 and resident sponsoring...

So my question now is: do i have to have proof of making the income above poverty line for three years straight, or will they understand that i was full time.in school for two years, and accept my current 2014 income as enough to sponsor my fiance.... or will i still need a sponsor???

It is not about your past income. It is about current income. You do not need to show 3 years of tax transcripts, just the one most recent year.

For current annual income, take how much they earn weekly, gross(before taxes) and multiply that by 52 weeks. If they are paid bi-weekly, then their bi-weekly gross pay multiplied by 26. The letter from employer and recent pay stubs are provided to prove that current income amount.
