RFIE Received: Asking for Joint Sponsor and Supporting Documents

Please Help!

We filed I-485, i-765 and I-131 on 25th July and received RFIE on 25th July. They are asking my wife who is US Citizen to provide the supporting documents used for filing the recent tax year and also to find the joint sponsor etc. She was self-employed before and was a part-owner in the business she was running with three more people. She sold the business and started a job on June 21 therefore we could not provide the six months pay stubs etc. On the tax form, we provided to USCIS shows her as a self-employed because she was still in that business until May this year.

RFIF: Question 1 which documents can we sent to USCIS that can be counted as a supporting documents used for filing the recent year tax as she was self-employed?

?

Question 2: My wife is thinking to ask her sister to become a joint sponsor so what documents does her sister needs to provide with I-864 in order to satisfy the USCIS requirements?

Thanks

1) it does not sound like she qualifies to sponsor you on her own, so there isn't much point in sending anything else

2) I-864 (the only joint sponsor checked), last year's tax return transcript (showing more than 125% of FPL for her household count plus one), employer letter, pay stubs, proof of US citizenship or LPR status

If self-employed, they will go by line 22 of the most recent 1040. However, if she is currently not self-employed any longer, then she would be qualifying with her current annual income. It sounds as if the income is really recent, but if she is an employee, she can have her employer provide a letter stating position, pay rate, etc., plus all the pay stubs she has received so far. She has only been at that job for 4 months now, so it is possible they will want a joint sponsor anyway, even if her current annual income meets the requirement.

Joint sponsors need the same supporting documents plus proof of being a USC or LPR. Details are listed in the I-864 instructions. Read through them carefully.

Hi I am Back with another question, my wife's sister or dad is willing to be joint sponsor.

My wife's sister annual salary is slightly over $15,000 but she lent some money around $25,000 to one small family business.

Can she use the money she lent as an asset? if yes what sort of evidence is needed to satisfy USCIS request?

If My wife's dad become joint sponsor, he is willing to show his house as an asset which worth around $440,000 but he wants to know if he still can sell the property in the next 6 months or once he become joint sponsor he cant do anything with the asset he showed?

The sister's salary is not enough to be a joint sponsor.

Does the dad have a current annual income, or just the house asset?
