Hello Everyone!

 

So, I am starting to fill out the I-864EZ and gathering the documents. Since I took two years off to raise our son, I did not have an income. My husband took care of us financially with his job. Recently I moved back to the states and I am working again. My current annual salary is above the 125% threshold. 

 

Looking at my tax transcript and finding the "Adjusted Gross Income" section, it is lacking by a lot when I enter it into the form. So I am providing my 2017 and 2016 tax transcript too, which is OK....

 

We are not looking to rope in a joint sponsor because we (more like my husband's bank account in Switzerland) do have the cash value for a family of 3 (5 times what is required) plus my job. Also there is a 70% chance that my husband's job will be relocating him to the USA branch. 

 

As of now, do I upload bank statements of my husband's bank account along with my pay stubs? 

 

Thank you for the help!

If im understanding you correctly, you will be using your husbands financial and you are the petitioner correct? If so you cannot use the I-864EZ, instead use the standard I-864 from. EZ version is only available to petitioner using only their income.

If you qualify on YOUR income, you can use the I-864ez.  You cannot include your assets with the I-864ez.

You are understanding correctly. Ok, I just re-read a particular line. Since I recently started the job, clearly my W-2 form is not available. Thank you!

If I do use the I-864 then could we use my husband's assets?

It needs to show on A w2. Whichever year.  But i think the I-864 is better suited for you right now.

Sadly no you cannot.

 

To qualify, an I-864 joint sponsor must meet all of the following requirements:

  • Be a U.S. citizen or green card holder
  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Reside in the United States or a U.S. territory but not in either spouse’s household
  • Have total household income equal to at least 125% of the Federal Poverty
  • Guidelines for their household size and location (for both the most recent tax filing year and the current year)
  • Be willing to accept joint liability with the sponsoring spouse for financially supporting the spouse seeking a green card

  • Be willing to accept joint liability with the sponsoring spouse for financially supporting the spouse seeking a green card

Then I am confused. When I did the I-864 Form, it has a section where I can enter in my husband's assets (cash amount in the bank).  Part 7 of the form (Assets of the Principal Sponsored Immigrant) where it is optional. 

 

**Item Numbers 6. - 9. Assets of the Intending Immigrant. You may use the assets of the intending immigrant regardless of where he or she resides. The intending immigrant must provide evidence of such assets with this affidavit. Add together Item Numbers 6. - 8. and type or print the total number in Item Number 9. Form I-864A is not required to document the intending immigrant’s assets.**

 

Thanks for the help!

Actually i just reread it income you cannot however it looks like assets are fine. He is the sponsored immigrant correct?

 

If your total household income does not meet the requirement, you may submit evidence of the value of your assets, the sponsored immigrant’s assets, and/or assets of a household member that can be used, if necessary, for the support of the intending immigrants. The value of assets of all of these persons may be combined in order to meet the necessary requirement.

Yes, he is the sponsored immigrant (The only non-USA citizen that I am bringing). Thank you for the clarification and taking the time to respond!
