Hello Guys,

I received en e-mail from NVC with a checklist stating that I must submit the following financial evidence:

[x] Proof of current employment (examples: a recently dated job letter, pay stub, or a copy of your business license).

When I looked over the copies I made of what I sent them turns out that was included.

I work as a freelance tailor, but at the moment i'm currently only working for a small company with many stores in my city. He pays me as an independent contractor 1099, as I don't have a set hourly/salary pay, or a set schedule If my service is needed I am contacted. The work, I do it from home, sometimes at his store if it's minimal work and has the required machines. On my I-864 the lady who I went with to get it filled out put on my application that I was employed. The letter of employment that I sent with the packet stated that I worked for him as an independent contractor. Could this have been what caused the NVC to ask for "Proof of current employment"? I called the NVC and the guy said that he can't see the paperwork, I told him how I work and he said to make my own Letter and to get an updated letter from the company.

Should I do exactly as he said? or should I take another route? I really don't want to wait another 60 days to hear back because I didn't send the proper paperwork.

Has anyone been in the same situation or can someone give me some advice?

Thanks ahead of time, I appreciate it.

I got a checklist as well. Yes to avoid another 60 day waste, you should call and speak to a supervisor first. I have learned that clerks don't have all the knowledge required and they have even conflicted each other in their answers. Have them transfer you to a supervisor. They will guide you properly. Also a good chance they may accept what you already sent (they did mine, after I complained).
