Joint sponsor and you have not files for taxes in the recent year due to low income?

Aloha, 

 

My fiancé and I have our interview coming up in the end of February.   He is Australian and I am American. I'm feeling pretty good about our documents, I've been working very hard to make sure we have everything they require and then some.  The one thing that is pressing on my mind is that I have not made enough money the past few years to be required to file for taxes and I haven't filed.  I feel a bit dumb, but I did not plan ahead for having tax returns to bring with.  I read somewhere that I can bring a letter stating that I was not required to file along with my I-134 Affidavit of support and that of my joint sponsor. 

My joint sponsor is my retired father you gains money from his retirement plan. He has plenty of evidence, tax returns from three years prior, bank statements and proof of his retirement payment each month.  

My question is, will this be enough evidence to get by?

 

My fear is that my lack of tax returns will be an issue with them.  Any constructive advice would be welcome!  Thank you!
