Hi guys im a dcf filer here in the philippines and im still waiting for the i130 approval we filed march 22. I have this question regarding the i864. My question is how do you write a letter stating that you have never work or never filed taxes. I’ve been here in the philippines since 2001 but i did go to the u.s on 2016 to 2017 for 10 months just for vacation. i have never work or even filed taxes since i was being supported by parents at that time including my brother. i would get my income/allowance  through western union which my brother would send me every month. My other question is my domicile i do have a u.s voter i.d from 2016 although I nevered voted at that time and i can have my brother wich is also my joint sponsor write a letter stating that me and my wife can stay with him. Does anyone have a template or an example how to make a letter for the domicile and not filing tax and nevered work?

If you had no income, you can simply print a letter stating such to include with the I-864.




ADDRESS to Consulate


To Whom It May Concern:

I, Burt N. Ernie was exempt from filing US tax returns for years, 2018, 2017, and 2016 because I did not work and had no income.


If you have any further questions regarding this or any other aspect of my petition, feel free to call me at 123456789Thank you so much for your consideration in this matter, and my wife and I look forward to taking this next step in our lives together.


Yours Sincerely,


Burt N. Ernie



As for domicile, to be sure to include as much evidence as possible that you will move to the US.  If you write a letter, it can be as basic as the one above, but be sure to follow the guideline in the I-864 instructions which states...


You intend in good faith to reestablish your domicile in the United States no later than the date of the intending immigrant’s admission or adjustment of status.

So you should write something similar to that effect.  "I, blah blah, intend in good faith to reestablish my domicile in the United States no later than the date of the intending immigrant's admission or adjustment of status."


You could have your joint sponsor also write or sign a letter stating the similar fact.
