Request for Initial Evidence

Hi Everyone,

My husband and I submitted his AoS paperwork at the beginning of August. We then received a Request for Initial Evidence on 9/9.

It states that:

1. The petitioner/sponsor lists their current income on form I-864 as an amount to be considered sufficient, however no evidence has been submitted as proof of current income.

I just graduated college in May and finished student teaching. I was offered a teaching position in May, but didn't begin classes until August. So from January to my first paycheck Sept. 2nd I had no pay. I did submit a letter from my employer stating all the information that was required. Could this have been because I didn't submit paystubs, but just the letter?

2. Submit all supporting tax documentation submitted to the IRS for most recent tax year.

I have been reading about submitting tax transcripts with this instead of copies of my W2 and tax return. Is this a good idea? Also, which transcripts do I submit since there return, record of account, account, and wage and income transcripts?

3. Based on the documentation submitted with Form I-864, affidavit of support, for the petitioner/sponsor, the income did not meet 125% of the poverty guideline for the petitioner/sponsor's household size.

My income is above the poverty guideline for a household of 2 people. Was this possibly put on their because I didn't submit paystubs as proof of income? I'm worried about this because I don't know if we'll be able to get a joint sponsor. I didn't think we needed one because my income was enough.

We have a meeting scheduled with InfoPass this Wednesday mainly to see why we require a joint sponsor when my yearly salary is enough. Just seeing if this has happened with anyone else and to get some advice. Thanks!
