Hello guys!! I’m very new and I have a few questions regarding the income requirements. I know for a family of 4 the income level should be somewhere around the $32,187 for a family of 4. I was about $600 OVER this amount with just my work income..... How much over are they wanting you to be? Secondly, will any other income help such as child support, etc? Third, I want to be prepared with a co-sponsor so if they ask for it can I give it to them at the interview  and they approve it then, or will I have to wait? What should I do? Any detailed information you can give me regarding the income would be so very helpful. My income for this year will be much higher when I do my taxes at the beginning of next year so I may not have to worry about it by time they require it for next year. I’m mailing the petition in a few weeks on November 30th. Anyone that has been through this process with a Jamaican I would to hear from you!

Income requirements are here (I suggest using the 125%):  https://www.uscis.gov/i-864p

 

The guideline are the baseline, don't know if there is a "overage" requirement.

And if you're just sending your petition now you will certainly be sending the taxes you do next year so this will all be moot. Taxes are required starting February and you won't get through NVC by then, you likely won't even be approved at USCIS yet. 

 

And yes, child support is considered income so you can add it to your salary.

Just checked... You're K1 so you'll need the income at Interview, still unlikely you'll need it before you file taxes. 

 

They use their discretion. There no set "over" amount that they require. They look at you entire case as a whole but usually once you make enough on your taxes you are okay.
