K1 VISA to green Card income question

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone my wife came to the US last year via k1visa. We applied for green card within the 90 period and got finger prints done as well. We submitted income tax returns for most recent year (2017) to show maintaining of income requirements. We haven’t had our interview yet and it’s 2019. Do I as her sponsor still have to maintain a certain amount of income on my 2018 income returns even though we already submitted 2017 returns with our application last year. Is it something they would ask for if we have a interview this year?

They can ask for updated i864 and supporting docs at interview, specially to see tax docs for 2018. So it’s safer to keep the same job or if changing jobs, one that has an income higher than the poverty guidelines for your household size

I would plan on them asking for an updated I-864 at the interview.
