Beneficiary Earns More Than Sponsor [split topic]

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Interesting...

 

So, in my case, as the person BEING sponsored, I am clearly the high-income earner (although, $65K-75K for the last several years on a TN certainly doesn't make me "high income", but higher than my wife - the sponsor).  I wonder how they will be treating our case.  We haven't heard anything regarding the income issues.  I actually work in US Government, and have been employed in my field for many years, earning about the same (remember, this is Government!) for the various entities I have been employed with (Local, Municipal, County, etc).  My wife, the sponsor, does not have a very high income at all, but clearly my income is substantially higher than hers.

 

Wonder how that will play out?

Should be good as you would have been included in the original sponsor's I864. The intending immigrant income is allowed to be included in the calculation provided you provide the proper financial docs.

Thank you Accumbyte and K1visahopeful for your responses.

 

I don't "recall" filing a form I-864, but then again, all my paper filing was handled by our attorney.  I will certainly be inquiring with the Firm ASAP to ensure this was clearly indicated. 

 

Thank you both!  :)
