interviewer asking for bank records

Ok my wife set up her interview today and they told her that she needed my bank records. It seems strange to me they would want my bank records. I make more than enough to support my wife. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Setup the interview today, or had her interview today?

Did you provide her with the most recent tax return and W-2?

Reality is if the embassy is asking for bank statements the you best email her some copies ASAP

@ Hank Does my fiance also need to send me his bank records even he is qualified for the 125% HHS of poverty guidelines? He will be mailing me next week of his w2, most recent itr, pay stubs, and the rest of all our original copies (l-129 F packet).

Normally the embassy only looks for copies of the most recent tax return and W-2. Income needs to meet the 125% poverty guidelines of the I-864P. There is no harm in having copies of pay stubs or bank statements.

@ Hank Thank you always :) oh btw, does my fiance should also send me the original hard copies of the NOA-1 and NOA-2? Or should we just make photocopies of that? And do l need to bring those during my medical, interview and CFO?

Don't need the NOA1 or NOA2 in the Philippines.

FOR LATER - Need the NOA2 for AOS after you are married in the USA.

We included the last three months of my bank statements as well as my W-2 and copy of income tax return for 2013 for the interview. They wanted to verify that the assets (savings account) that I had listed were accurate.

If you only list your income, but don't list assets, then they will only need your W-2 and tax returns...

@ Paul & Jesica So you mean to say it's okay for my fiance to just leave it blank (bank savings, life insurance, personal property sections) on his affidavit of support? You think they won't question that if he only put his annual income? I will be bringing with me his w2, 2013 tax returns and pay stubs during my interview.

If your fiance's income meets the 125% requirement of the I-864P then there is no need to list bank assets, personal property or anything else.

As long as the most recent tax return and W-2 show adequate income all is fine. Having pay stubs is just icing on the cake.

@ Hank Yes he meets the 125% poverty guidelines. I have one more to ask, l've seen here on VJ about their experiences during their interviews and some of them were asked during the 1st step if they were petitioned before. Should l say yes, because my mom petitioned me seven years ago and currently ongoing. You think l won't encounter any problems regarding to this?

We were WAY over the income requirements but they made us file bank records anyway. For a full year.

So we did. I had the bank certify the amounts.

perhaps something is amiss?

you need to show:

1. prior year tax data and

2. current annual income, proof of.

were you utilizing cash in bank, as asset, to offset a deficiency in current annual income? If yes, then that's absolutely the reason why.

Otherwise, something else may be off, on your I-864. The I-864 is adjudicated in full on interview day, with doc intake and first level check done at NVC. If something is 'off', NVC usually not complain about it, but the Vice-Consul that interviews yer spouse certainly might !


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

Whoa Nelly ! Want NVC Info? see http://www.visajourney.com/wiki/index.php/NVC_Process

Congratulations on your approval ! We All Applaud your accomplishment with Most Wonderful Kissies !

Always, always be honor when answering questions at the embassy... always. Did I mention always... ;):):lol:

It will not be an issue that your mom petitioned you as well.
