Military benefits for K-1 visa

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I have been scrolling through the threads on this forum and I haven't quite found what I've been searching for. Me and my partner filed our i-129f in the middle of October and I'm starting to think about the next step in our application.

My partner left the Navy in late 2016 and started working immediately after. In January 2018 he also started studying using his GI-bill which contains both housing allowance, book costs and a "salary" every month. This means that he is both a full time worker and a full time student getting both his military educational benefits and the salary he earns from work. 

What type of papers do we need to prove that he is over the poverty limit? We will get papers stating his salary and his pay stubs from his employer but does the GI-bill count? If so what type of papers do we need for this?

 

Thanks a lot in advance

Pay stubs, bank account, anything showing his gi payment and pay checks.  Yes gi bill counts.

Yes, the GI BIll or any sort of payment by the VA to him does count as income. He will have paperwork from the VA showing how much they paid him for the months he was going to school, or he can just print off the page from the VA website showing all payments made to him from the VA.

Thank you so much for you reply! If we print it off the webpage is that sufficient or do we need to get the original paperwork just to be safe?

Showing actual payments hitting the bank is best. 

Downloaded and printed ststements are fine

It counts as income, for everything  other than the IRS as taxable income. It has never been on my 1040 (CPA dose it every yr.) and document from VA states as non-taxable. Have bought cars, houses  andother things and all consider income, even (NVC & State Dept)for k1.
