New job and I864

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I have learned so much from these forums so thank you in advance. We are at the interview stage, just waiting for July appointments to open.

We are currently in Mexico and I am employed. I know that I should put 0 income in the tax return boxes on the i864 because my income will not continue. I have filed tax returns the last three years to include.

I got a job as a teacher and technically I start August 5. My current job in Mexico ends May 22.

Where it says current employment, as of today, it is Big Mega Expensive University in Mexico, but I would like to write New School in USA because by the time my husband goes for his interview, I wont be employed at BMEU anymore, but I will have an official employment letter from New School with my salary. Right now I have emails, offer emails, and copies of W2, and direct deposit paperwork I filled out online.

Question 1:

Can I put teacher and New School as my current employer in Part 6 1 and 1.a and explain in my i864 cover letter that the job starts August 5 and earns XXXXXXX amount of dollars a year?

Question 2:

In current income box on Part 6 number 5, I wrote 0 but now I wonder... Can I put the salary for New School even though it technically starts August 5? I understand that for tax years 2014, 2013, and 2012 I should write 0 and I did.

We do have a joint sponsor, but I would like to show that I am reestablishing domicile (moving back to USA in June with our child to begin my new career while husband has interview and finishes Master's degree and graduates in December and moves to USA in mid December)...

Thank you,
