Hello, I need help...

My husband who is my petitioner lives in Spain with me and he hasn't income for the last 3 years. 
He has a friend who will help him by being the joint sponsor. The doubt is that this person retires at the end of 2018, and I do not know if that could be a problem.

If my husband doesn't live and doesn't work in USA, what do we need to send to the NVC?

Thank you very much for your collaboration.

As long as the co-sponsor still has an income that supports their dependents as well as you and your husband retirement should not matter.  As to your other question, others may know more, but hopefully your husband still filed taxes while abroad, and eventually he will have to re-establish a US abode.


Good Luck!

It could be a huge problem if the Joint Sponsor recently retired.  His CURRENT income is what is considered; not his past income from his job that he retired from in 2018.  


US citizens are taxed on worldwide income, did he work while abroad?  If he did have income abroad, then he needs to file US tax returns.


You need a qualified Joint Sponsor.

The sponsor is a retired military officer in December 2018. I guess that he will continue to have retirement income.

Yes, my husband worked in Spain. While he was working, he filled his income in Spain and in Usa.
