I-864: Made no income last year, started a new job this year.

Hey for the last several years I was a medical student and from July I finally started a job as a resident that makes a real income (around $55k).  Originally I had used my parents as a financial sponsor for the K-1 visa process.  I was hoping to be the sponsor myself now that I have a qualifying income.  However, my tax returns the last few years have essentially been 0 (being in school and all).  

Am I still qualified to be a sponsor or do I have to go back to my parents for help?

technically you would qualify but to be on the safe side, i would have the co sponsors information on hand for the interview just in case.


take a copy of your employment contract (if you have one), pay stubs, and employment letter.


You may not need the co sponsor at all but better to be prepared and not need it than need it and not have it. Some consulates are 'pickier' than others.
