Affidavit is making my brain hurt

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I apologize in advance if I'm rambling on and it's long butttt... I cannot find much for consistency in filling out the Affidavit of Support. In general it is pretty easy and straight forward. That is, until you get to the income section. I've found some people saying to copy your income from your transcripts and some (like the NVC website) do not mention that little tid bit at all. My numbers will not add up for it because as of February of this year I got 'hired on' as a permanent employee at my job which essentially included a few raises along the way these last 7 months. My problem is what number to I use?! Last year I wouldn't have made the threshold, but this year with my new income I will be over the 125%. I already have a letter from my supervisor and printed off my pay stubs. So technically. writing down my income off of last years return will force me to get a Co-sponsor but that won't be my correct income. My brain hurts. If anyone can simplify this for me I will forever be grateful! :)

Filed: AOS (apr) Country: Philippines

As most have stated during alot of my readings through the forum(even 3+ yr old postings), as long as you can show currently that you are making the required 125% or above then you will be fine.

As you said having the consistent pay stubs and the employer letter stating your job, full time, salary(or hourly wage) and such that should more than suffice for the requirements.

Every consulate is different, but as most have said they really just care about what you're making now, not what you made last year on the tax return.

Hope this helps and others will chime in also. Good luck on your journey!

Where it says current income you put what you are CURRENTLY making...then a few pages later where u list your 3 years taxes you put the adjusted gross income from your tax returns there....and then any assets u list or not...etc

Hope this helps

Yes!! Thank you so much that does help. That's how I originally filled it out and apparently I couldn't put commas lol but anyways that's perfect answer.

One random question though, I've seen mixed things as well about sending in passport style photo for the beneficiary to the NVC. I swear I didn't see anything on the state dept website if I send them in or not. Thanks :)
