Interview question RE: Affidavit of Support

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

This forum was so valuable to us during the previous steps of this process so I'm turning to you guys again. We got a letter in the summer saying we probably wouldn't be interviewed, but somewhat recently received an interview date so we're back to the paperwork!

We want to file our taxes now as additional proof of our relationship. We recently had a child together and have a ton of just about everything you can imagine for the relationship so I'm not worried about that part, however, I have other questions...

Since we are now in 2015 and I'm doing 2014 taxes, do I need to bring an updated Affidavit of Support with me?

If so, does my husband's income (he started working with the EAD) also count towards the household income?

AND.. is there an additional form to fill out to show his?

We have gone through the checklist a few times and I think this is the last question we have about being interview ready. If for some crazy reason we are missing something do they give a grace period to give it to them? I don't think this will be an issue, I went over the K1 interview paperwork with a fine tooth comb to make sure it was all orderly.. but there's nothing about this process that is calming! I'll be so glad to have the interview done, green card in hand, and take a break from immigration for a bit!



(p.s. This is a different account name since I couldn't remember my email for the previous, I'll add my timeline later on. He came over Dec 2014, we were married in Feb.. and so it's a year after that we're going for the AOS interview)

You do not need to provide a new I-864. As it states on the interview letter, to bring it unless already submitted. If you file the 2014 taxes before the interview, then bring a copy of the return with you, especially if it shows you filed jointly. It can be used as proof of valid marriage. If you have not filed yet before the interview, then bring the W-2 for 2014 and recent pay stubs from you both, just in case they want to see updated income. They may not ask, but good to have them on hand just in case.
