Affidavit Support Documents

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

I'd like to ask about several things related to the evidence for Affidavit Support Form to all of you who already passed this process :

1. On point 8a-c, are all of the documents required/need to attached with the Affidafit Support Form? Or when the letter of employee mentioned that the petitioner's salary in annual already stated more than the poverty level of US, the bank statement and proof of assets is no longer needed?

 

2. Do you think how much money that should be stated on the bank account to make the embassy so sure that the petitioners can fulfilled the beneficiary needed?

 

Thanks a lot!

1. My now-wife just brought my pay stubs and most recent tax transcript to the interview. She might have brought a copy of my most recent W2 too, but I can't remember. It was sufficient for the embassy. She didn't have any problems and there weren't any issues. 

2. The instructions on the similar I-864 (which you'll need to do for adjustment of status after you two are married here in the US) provide the following example:

Example of How to Use Assets: If you are petitioning for a parent and the poverty line for your household size is $22,062 and your current income is $18,062, the difference between your current income and the poverty line is $4,000. In order for assets to help you qualify, the combination of your assets, plus the assets of any household member who is signing Form I-864A, plus any available assets of the sponsored immigrant, would have to equal five times this difference (5 x $4,000). In this case, you would meet the income requirements if the net value of the assets equaled at least $20,000.

If the petitioner's income is sufficient, there is no need to provide any asset information.

You only need them if the petitioner's income isn't high enough, and you need to make up the difference via assets (such as savings in a bank account).
