Can someone explain I864 requirements

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am a few hundreds dollars below the I 864p limits are wonder if I should get another job or get a joint sponsor. My husband actually works which whom I will be filing for, but based on what I have read I don't know if I can add his income to put us right at the level.. Also if we haven't been married long will that look poorly on filing too soon... We have been married 2 months... I have the paperwork together, it is kind of nerve wrecking because it so important. Any advise stories are welcome..

Thanks :):):dancing::dancing::dancing:

There's no problem with filing directly after marriage. Just have your bonafide evidence in order should they ask for it.

You can't be short on the I-864. If you're missing some money in salary, you need to make it up with 3 x the missing amount in savings/assets. e.g. If you're $500 short, you need 3 x $500. That'd be $1500 in savings or other assets.

If you still don't have enough, you should get a joint sponsor.

I'm assuming your husband is still abroad so his income will not continue when he moves, therefore cannot be included.

Edit: I just realised that you're posting in the work/student/visa section of the forum - is he adjusting from one of those? If so, then I guess he's not moving. :)
