Query about income requirements for sponsor

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

Does anyone know if it's your most recent tax return that decides whether or not the petitioner meets poverty limit or is it current income? My husband was living in and working in Australia until earlier this year so his 2017 US income on the tax return is nothing but his current actual income is well above the poverty line. Will we need to use a co-sponsor in that case or will they approve based on evidence of current income?

 

Thank you :)

They use previous and current to determine public charge risk. They are most concerned about current income.

While they consider everything, nothing from the past can replace the need for current income.  If you were coming from India, he would need three years of qualifying income PLUS qualifying current income but for Australia, I wouldn't worry about it, if the current income is solid.
