I-864 Affidavit of Support

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, my husband is filing the affidavit of support for me for my AOS filling. I have a copy of his 2017 and 2018 tax return from the IRS along with the W-2's. We have a copy of his federal income tax which is the 1040 that he printed out after filing his 2018 federal taxes. Is that copy along with his W-2 for 2018, updated letter of employment, and 3 most recent month's of pay stubs sufficient for filing or does he need to request a copy of his federal tax return from the IRS?

He should have a copy of the forms he submitted to the IRS. You are supposed to keep a complete copy for your records. Do you mean ordering a Return Transcript?

The I864 instructions will help you narrow down what documents are required for your particular financial situation based on your household size and what amounts you fill out on your sponsor's I864. 

It's very difficult to answer what documents you will need as it's specific to your situation. Its not a checklist of documents that you are required to submit. 

 

IN GENERAL, the only REQUIRED financial documents you must submit are the most recent year's tax documents. That could be the most recent RETURN Transcript (best choice) plus the earnings statement(s) IF that return was filed jointly

OR

the most recent COMPLETE actual federal tax forms they submitted to to the IRS which includes ALL pages and schedules (not just the 1040) plus the earnings statement(s) whether that return was filed jointly or not.

 

As for the rest, I suggest you read the I864 instructions to figure out what documents apply to you and your financial situation and correspond to what you have filled out on the I864. The documents you submit are directly and completely related to that.

 

There are quite a bit of errors in your original statement too...ie, stating 2017 and 2018 when you only need 2018. Three years are optional....6 months paystubs....

Reading the instructions while you check over your I864 would probably be a great idea for your situation if you arent completely understanding of what your situation requires.

I would use all means possible to obtain a 2018 "Return Transcripts".   It is an official IRS record of what was really filed.
