Poverty Level Guidelines

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, i am married to Costa Rican woman, anyways our case is at NVC. One of the things i am not sure about is the form for Affidavit of Support, Well my ex claims my son on taxes, but should i still count him as household members. he is at my house 1/2 the time and ex's the other half. If so according to Poverty Guideline form, it says for 2 in household at 125% (for all other sponsors since i am not in military) the income is 20,025. my Tax gross income was 20,056. I hope my question is clear for ya all.

Do i need a co-sponsor then?

They go by what's on your taxes, if they are not claimed then I believe it's just for 2 people then.

Just want to clarifying again for anyone reading that this is not true.

Children count even if you never see them, they live a foreign country, etc.

Under US law, you could be forced to support them at any time, so they would be a drain on your household income.


3/2/18  E-filed N-400 under 5 year rule

3/26/18 Biometrics

7/2019-12/2019 (Yes, 16- 21 months) Estimated time to interview MSP office.
