2 month unemployment gap while waiting for NOA2

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Received my NOA1 on October 30th 2018. I currently work a full time and a part time job. I'm thinking of quitting the full time job, to start driving for lyft. I will do lyft for only 2 months so that i have time to train for a commercial truck driving license. During the 2 months of lyft driving, I will be considered unemployed since it's an independent contractor thing. I will most likely become truck driver for a trucking company in February or March of 2019. My fiance's interview will be early to mid June at the embassy in Manila Philippines.

 

So that only gives me about 2 months to come up with paystubs from the new trucking company, and send the I-134 packet. 

 

Will that still be enough to get approved?

Will the lyft driving or multiple employers hurt the application?

Thanks for the help

Correct, but I read its difficult to provide proof of income as self-employed since it only shows on tax returns. 

Then stop reading there.   For most,  the tax return is the basis of the initial evidence.   Secondly,  it's all about current income.   So if you are gainfully employed and can show it via pay stubs that will be primary evidence.   Thirdly,  you are dealing with Manila which doesn't often ask for financial records,  though you need to be prepared in the off chance they do 

 

Visit the Philippines regional forum for all things Manila because they have a few things that are only specific to that embassy

Current K1 processing time is almost 10 months from NOA1 so the Manila interview will be more like August if all goes well.  It could be earlier, or later, but that is the average now, and it is increasing every month.  https://www.visajourney.com/content/k1historical  So you will have a bit more time to establish proof of current income for the interview.

While the processing times expand and contract with great regularity,  our petition to interview was under 8 months.
