Help filling out G-325A employment history

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! I need help filling out my employment history on the G-325A form for the K-1 Visa for my fiancé. I'll give you a summary of my case:

I'm a US citizen, I was born there but I have lived here in Peru since I was 4 (i'm 25). I've visited the US several times though, and I am moving there soon so I'm petitioning my fiancé so he can come with me. We're filling out the employment history part of the G-325A and I have a few questions.

For the last 2 years I haven't had a "legal" job, I have a jewelry brand that i sell independently, and I do fashion styling and Art Direction, but have been paid in cash for those jobs. 5 years ago I moved to the US and worked at Macy's for 6 months. The thing is I've never done taxes, i didn't know I had to if I lived and worked abroad.

Should I list the jobs I've had even though they weren't "official" or I was paid in cash?

Please help! thanks

I think you're going to run into some big issues when it comes time for the interview(if it makes it that far as you already are having issues with work history), because they are going to request those tax returns(up to 3 years) and pay stubs to show consistent income.

Most likely need to find a co-sponsor if available, preferably close family.

There is a "self-employed" method for showing income but it also still requires alot of the same things.

I am using a lawyer to assist with our K1 and this is what was asked for in the sense of "if self-employed": assets can be taken into account but if you're just going to be moving back that may be difficult to show.

If self-employed, please also submit at least one of the following to prove self-employment:

1. Most recent W-2s, 1099s (if applicable)

2. Copy of business license

3. Copies of Articles of Corporation

4. Report of Commercial Rating Concern

5. Original letter from your accountant stating the number of years they have been handling your finances, doing your taxes, and confirming your self-employment

As US citizen living abroad you have to file taxes unless you do not owe any

Business owners are expected to pay quarterly payments for federal taxes and expected medicare and SS taxes Form 1040 ES

then file in the spring normally

You sttill need to file taxes and make arrargaments to pay any owed amounts

Thank you for your answers guys! I did some research and found out I don't need to file taxes, so I'm good there. But now I have another question. I just found out my father has me listed as a dependent on his tax return even though i've never lived with him and i need to know if that could affect my petition in any way. I won't be able to be my fiancés sponsor, I already have a co sponsor for him, so there's no problem there but do you guys know if it could affect it in any other way?

Thank you in advance
