Didn't meet income requirements last year but I will this year.

Hi! 

 

So my tax transcripts won't show that I met the income requirements for the affidavit of support last year, but I can provide paystubs and letters from my employers showing that I will make enough this year to sponsor my fiancé. Will this be sufficient? I'm also looking into having a co/joint sponsor, but I'd prefer to do it myself if possible.

 

Thank you!

The CO will consider you whole financial situation, but providing pay stubs and an employment letter, bank statements is a good method of showing current income.  Even if you meet the minimum requirements, the CO can still ask for a joint sponsor.  So, it might be wise to have one available.

I've also been told we may not need to provide an I-134 at all. So I guess we'll see, but I know we'll definitely have to have the I-864 (I think that's the right one) when he moves here. So I'm just trying to be prepared.

It depends on the consulate as to whether they ask for an I-134.  But you are correct in that you WILL need an I-864 when time to adjust status.

I'm sorta hoping they don't because I'm going to be in a much better place financially in a couple of months (I've just accepted a job for nearly twice the minimum income requirement, so I'm hopeful that will be enough for the I-864) but I also know that it's a possibility. I also know that it's going to be coming up pretty soon, so I want to be as ready as possible.
