Financial supporting docs for lower income

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My partner was unemployed in 2013 (no tax filed), had a low income in 2014 and 2015 and this year will be making *just* above the required amount for the k1 interview. We will have to get a co-sponsor for AOS paperwork, as I understand this income requirement is higher. He has his 2014 and 2015 tax papers/W2s, bank statements, a letter from his current employer and pay stubs.

Has anyone been in a lower income situation like this?

What else should he get? Interview is October 26th!

I know this isn't very helpful, but it seems like you have all that you need for the interview. With all the supporting documents you're bringing, you should be approved.

Now you guys should focus on the co-sponsor stuff..

Montreal will ask for a joint sponsor for the k1. They like to see 125% not 100.

Most likely this. ^

Montreal isn't too harsh on the relationship proof department, but they have been known to scrutinize incomes. There's a good chance that they will ask for a joint sponsor.

The proof is all there though, he shouldn't need anything else, but again, you will almost 99% chance get hit with a request for a joint sponsor.

Do you have one in mind already? If so, you should start talking to them now about the K1 interview.

I realized that I was totally mixed up/confused (long story....) and my partners' making above the 125% at $24,000 before taxes, as stated in the recent letter from his employer. Previous years' income was significantly lower though. Just us two involved... no dependents.

Thanks everybody for the input!
