Affidavit of Support before 2019 taxes filed (proof of income)

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

quick question (I think this may have been answered but I can't find a succinct thread regarding this)


I am currently still awaiting NOA2 but want to make sure NVC documents are in order so we can upload quickly (beneficiary is a UKC). I am currently making more than double the minimum income for a household size of two, and I started my job in January 2019. Assuming the VJ timelines are close to correct we should have NOA2 in November and likely will need my Affidavit of Support documents by December/Jan, with an interview date for, hopefully, Feb/March.


The problem is, I will not yet have filed my 2019 tax return by the time these documents are needed. I have access to 3 years prior tax returns, however I was working abroad during those years and while I did file and my income in US$ is shown (and sufficient!), I know foreign - earned income does not count.


My question: Will a year's worth of paystubs showing my YTD earnings and a letter from my employer, alongside earlier tax returns (showing consistent earning, though abroad), be sufficient for the Affidavit of Support? Or should I prepare a joint sponsor? 


I plan to file my taxes as early as possible, so by the time the interview comes up, I should have the completed 2019 return-- can my spouse bring this along to interview as an update ?


thank you!!
