Another AOS/Sponsor Question

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was going to do the I-864EZ form and it only asks for the most current tax return which would be 2017. Here’s my situation: 

In 2017, I made above the poverty guideline. 

In 2018, I had a baby (add dependent/one more person to household) and am now working part time. 

Should I try my luck with just submitting 2017 tax return or should I do the I-864 form and get a sponsor since I not above the poverty guideline this year?

By the time you go to the interview you would most likely have filed your taxes for the next year and you'd bring them with you. So, get a cosponsor. 

Better to be safe than sorry. I'd vouch for this as well.

The i864ez also asks for current income and household size. If you are correctly filing it, with your current part time income and adding the baby, it won’t be enough anyway. Stating your latest tax income alone wouldn’t qualify you anyway. They look at all the info, current and past, to identify if the person immigrating would likely be a liability, so, best to sort out the joint sponsor before sending your application

It is not information from a tax return that qualifies you.  Your current income is your gross income from one full pay period times the number of pay periods in a full year.  If that isn't enough, nothing from a tax return will overcome that.  If your current income is not enough, you CANNOT use the EZ version of the form.
