Hi all,

ME and my wife are currently preparing our AOS documents. Can anyone answer the topic question? My wife is already earning enough this year but the form i864ez has fields for 3 consecutive years gross income.

Regards,

Ron

The sponsor does not need to have worked for three years as long as they are currently making 125% above the poverty line; this can be proved by sending paystubs, employment letter. If she has not worked and therefore not filed taxes before this year then do not cross off those fields, but you need to add a written explanation on why she did not file taxes.

Thank you! Do I leave the fields blank for the 2nd and 3rd previous years and just include an explanation why only the most recent year is entered even if it's low?

Regards,

Ron
