NVC Checklist

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Philippines

We're having a problem with our IR5 case. It's been nearly 60 days since all the required paperwork was received at the NVC. We haven't received any official notice, and when requesting status by phone or e-mail, we are only told we have to keep waiting.

However, last week my wife was told that our case had a checklist but the operator wouldn't say what it was. She said we had to wait for an e-mail. We have not received any notice of a checklist. Yesterday she called again and the operator said Part 6, #13.a.1 (2013 AGI) of the I864 needs to match her tax form 1040.

There are two problems here:

1. Why weren't we notified that are form was incorrect? Is there such thing as a "false" checklist? What is the normal mode of sending a checklist - e-mail or snail mail?

2. I hate the I864. It's so confusing. My wife is unemployed except for a bit of babysitting she did at the end of 2013. Since we file joint taxes, do I really need to do a separate I864A for myself? For part 6, #13.1.1 I entered her total income in 2013 ($710) but apparently that is wrong. It states "My total income as reported on my Federal tax returns". $710 was her total income, but apparently I should have entered the AGI that includes my income??? Does anyone have an example of an 864 and 864A where the petitioner is unemployed and relying on her spouse?

Thank you.
