File I-864EZ or get a joint sponsor

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am the USC petitioner for my wife, currently gathering documentation for the AOS I-864 for an IR-1 visa.  I have lived abroad since 2010, and currently live with my wife.  We are applying electronically via the Bucharest Embassy.


My conundrum is the following:  I currently have a US job working remotely.  I've been with them since January 2018, making well over the 125% guideline.  So, for proof of current income, I am confident that we are covered.


For the previous tax years, I worked in Romania for a Romanian company, and filed tax returns in the US, using the Foreign Earned Income forms.  I made $15,000 or less in each of those tax years, which is a good salary for Romania, but below the poverty line in the US.  If I choose to fill out the I-864EZ and use only my income and tax records, will I have problems considering my past income was so low?


Alternately I can ask my father to be a joint sponsor as he has plenty of current income, and his past three years of tax returns will be similarly high.  Is this overkill?
