Possible mistake with Affidavit of Support?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am the USC petitioner. NVC received our Affidavit of Support package on January 27 (CR-1 visa). My income was slightly below the requirement, so we used a joint sponsor. We both sent IRS tax transcripts from the past 3 years (2013-2015). The joint sponsor's income is about 4 times more than what is required; however, before I sent it I saw that the transcripts showed that he was "married filing jointly" with his wife, so the transcripts don't differentiate between his and his wife's incomes. I realize now that we probably should have sent in a separate I-864 for her too, as her name or income is not included in our forms. We didn't send in any other information like W-2's or pay stubs. Yes, I know I should have but that's beside the point now.


My questions are... are they likely to send a checklist for more information about his income? Should I send in our 2016 W-2's to the NVC right now to avoid it, or should I just wait it out? Would that even be enough? Does anyone have any experience with this? Is it possible they will just ask for this at the interview stage? My goal is obviously just to avoid delays as much as possible, like everyone else here.

With "married filing jointly" they usually require the spouse to file a I-864A to show she is aware and supports the sponsoring. I'd wait it out, you can most likely bring the extra docs to the embassy interview.
