I-864EZ / Income Related Question

Hello everyone,

 

A few quick questions regarding I-864EZ and its income requirements.  I'm the lone petitioner/sponsor for my spouse in Pakistan.  While I meet the income requirements for the current year (2019) and the past year (2018), I am short for the years 2017 and 2016.  What should I do? Will I be okay?  If I do it alone, will the NVC let me know regarding a co-sponsor before the case is sent to the embassy in Pakistan?  

 

Thanks for any help.

The consulate has the final say, but NVC will suggest a joint sponsor if you don't meet the requirements

Thanks, payxibka.  So it's necessary to meet the requirements for all 4 years?

So NVC won't force me but rather make a recommendation that I do...

In your situation, I don't think they will make a recommendation either.  I've only see them do that when the LAST tax return doesn't qualify.  Even then, it's a "you might want to..." kind of recommendation.  It matters a lot how far over the requirement your income is and what kind of job you have.  It's a judgment call, considering the totality of circumstances.

Thanks for your thoughts, pushbrk.  Much appreciated.
