Foreign earned income for I-864

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,


Been reading along on this forum for a long time and it's been very helpful!
I've searched the forum but could not find an answer to my question, so hopefully by posting someone will know what to do.


Next week I will have my i-130 interview here in Amsterdam. My spouse (US citizen) sponsored me and is living with me in the Netherlands as well.
We discovered an error in the I-864 and need to bring a corrected one to the interview.
Since he works for a specific organisation the domicile is not an issue, but his income is foreign earned.

Taxes in the US have been up to date, but based on this his income is 0.


Now I also have a good income and make more than enough to qualify. Its also a permanent contract. However, it's still foreign earned.
But my work is not location bound and will continue once we move to the US. (i can work anywhere as long as I have an internet connection)

Today I received an employers statement as well as a letter written and signed stating that my employment & income with their company would continue regardless of my move to the US.


Is this enough to use my income in the I-864?

The I-864 is driving me nuts.

Yes if your income will continue from the same source once in the USA, and you can prove that, that should be fine.
