Affidavit of Support, re income

We've just filed my petition at the London Embassy (9/19) and I received an email from my credit card that basically the fee had been charged to my account (9/30), no NOA1 yet.

I've been a resident in UK for 6 years and even though I have no income in the US, I have filed taxes throughout this time. I am moving to the US in a couple of weeks whilst my wife stays in UK. We have a place to stay, I just need to find a job which shouldn't be a problem (and the salary will meet the income requirements). The question is, say I find this job within a few weeks, will this satisfy the requirements as I won't have a tax return that will show my current salary. What sort of proof from my employer would they require?

As I understand it, the USCIS likes to see steady, reliable sources of income from the US. If you have to go back to the US and then find a job, it seems that the "steady" requirement might be an issue. I would prepare to look for a US based sponsor at this point.

In our case we sent my husband's signed work contract in with the paperwork for the packet 3 and affidavit of support.

He will start the new job once we are in the US.

The CO actually asked him about it one more time at the interview (my husband came with me.)

It was not an issue, and she was satisfied with his additional explanation that he had gotten an offer and signed a contract and would start as soon as he's out there.

That you filed taxes is great, and you could also additionally list any potential assets.

If our case is anything to go by, you should be fine if you send in a copy of the new job contract - letter from the future employer, or something similar.

Good luck!

Thank you so much to all who have replied. I hope more people chime in with their 2 cents/personal experience ?

I'm actually an LPN but unfortunately there wasn't an equivalent qualification in the UK so I've been working with a much lower salary in the U.K. Fortunately my job/salary prospects are more optimistic in the US. Apart from that we don't really have any assets or enough savings.

We just received our NOA1 via email today so I'm excited now. We will be optimistic and try to have just me as a sole sponsor. Our target date for my wife's immigration to US is March 2017. I think that's enough time even with RFE for the visa approval.
