Affidavit of Support (recently hired)

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 

My fiancee has her interview coming up in less than a month and there is one big issue that has be worried. The affidavit of support. 

 

I graduated with my masters of administration in May 2018. I was able to find a job and start working at the start of September 2018. I am making above the required poverty amount for my state for the K-1. However my tax return documents show only the income I have earned, not my total yearly wage. I do not have a signed contract at my company but I do recieve medical benefits. My question is, can they deny the visa because I have only been working 6 months so far? I have signed documents from my employer showing that I have been working there and my total yearly income. I have documents signed from my bank showing my paycheck deposits. I also had corporate send an official document stating that I am employed and have health care benefits. Can I be denied for not having a full years income to show for? Is there anything I can do to help strengthen our case that I can support my financee once she is here?

 

Thank you for all the help!

Please fill out your timeline. Because some consulates are more strict than others, it will make it much easier for other members to give accurate information.

 

You have documents showing your paycheck deposits. I would also include copies of your paystubs.

Actually, I was talking about your timeline on this site. 

 

If you are on a computer, go to the top right of the screen and you will see your user name.

Click on the triangle to the right and that will give you a drop-down menu.

Click on my timeline.

On the new screen,  click on the green link "Edit/ Add My entry."

On the next screen click Edit Timeline.

Fill in your information on the next screen and click submit changes.

 

This allows posters to see which type of visa you are applying for and where you are in the process. This information is also used to generate estimated processing times.

The CO at the consulate is only interested if the petitioner can support the family size. A break in employment is not necessarily a black mark against you. This is what they are looking for as the requirements.

 

EVIDENCE OF SUPPORT. You should be able to demonstrate that you will not become a public charge or be a burden on the U.S. taxpayers for financial support. A completed I-134 Affidavit of Support Form (https://www.uscis.gov/i-134) K1/K2 Interview Preparation Instructions – English (February 2014)  Page 3 of 9 with an original signature will be useful to the consular officer to evaluate your petitioner’s ability to be financially responsible for you. You should also submit your petitioner’s most recent U.S. Federal income tax return (Form 1040) and wage statements (Form W-2). Employment letters stating salaries and bank statements may be included to substantiate the I-134. Get the IRS transcript in place of the actual 1040 here: https://www.irs.gov/Individuals/Get-Transcript Use this link to determine the income levels needed https://www.uscis.gov/i-864p.

A simpler way is she can select the "timeline" in her profile on the left hand side of the page and it will take her to her timeline page where she can either begin a timeline or update the one she has. FYI :thumbs:
