We need advice with our case

Hi, my name is Mary I am new here. 

I met my husband 5 years ago when I was traveling alone in the US.

I am 38 years old and he is 45, not kids and no huge age difference.

I ended up staying in his city for two months and we spent all the time together. 

After two months I left to my country and we kept talking on the phone and texting for 3 years, we had plans to go see each other but because of work and elder parents we didn't.

But as I said kept talking every day.

After 2 years my husband wanted to come to my country to see me but he was injured at work and ended up not coming.

a year later I came to the States to see him, and stayed for two months, he proposed to me and two weeks later we got married at city hall.

Because I have and ill old parent I had to come back to my home country and wait for the interview in my country, my husband stayed in the US waiting for me.

We went to Barcelona together for a week for out honeymoon , that was just a month ago. 

We sent the petition a year ago and now it's time to send the financial documents and wait for the interview.

 

What we sent with the I130 -

Some photos of us, about 15 (no wedding photos - city hall quick wedding, was never interested in a big wedding), too many pages of chat logs throughout the years, a receipt for the engagement ring he bought me, marriage license and a letter from a friend that knows us.

We didn't have anything else to send since we never lived together and we don't have a joint bank account. 

 

Our petition was approved and we got the NOA2

 

My husband like I said was injured at work and he didn't work for 2 years, in 2018 he started working as self employed contractor and he made around $25000, but no income for the 2 previous years.

 

Now for my questions - 

1. Is the evidence we have enough? do we need to send more? upload to CEAC? (don't even know if it's possible - but I have more recent pics from Barcelona and boarding passes from our trip, attraction tickets, receipt for a gift he bought me, hotel booking confirmation)

 

2. Is his income enough? I know it's enough for 2 people, but I am worried because the two previous years show no income.   

 

Thank you :)

His income will be enough if it is shown on line 6 of the first page of his 2018 US Tax return.  Enough, meaning it meets the minimum.  With no income the two previous years, you would be well advised to have a qualified joint sponsor at least ready to step in, if needed.  No, you don't need to send more evidence of relationship to NVC, if coming from Spain.  What IS your "home country".  It can make a difference.  For instance, if it's India, you will definitely need a qualified joint sponsor. For a Western European country, most likely not.

 

Ultimate decisions on affidavits of support are always a judgment call made at the Consulate, not NVC.
