Filing status question

Ok so my wife and I have been married for 6 years and she is overseas. I have petitioned her and she should be here in US by summer 2020 on a spousal. I have always filed MFS, as she has no TIN or SSN and it was the advice I was given. no kids.

 

 

Now, I will owe a few thousand this year but I wondered if I got an auto extension till October 15 could I wait until my wife arrives and gets her SSN and file MFJ?

 

 

Even though she was not a SSN holder in 2019?

 

It is about a $2000 difference, so I am checking.

 

Thanks

Yes you can wait to file as MFS and just make sure you pay the tax you owe.   The extension is for time to file not time to pay.  Once you have he ssn you can go back an amend a few years if it helps.

Hello guys, 

I have a few questions.  My fiancee just had her interview last Thursday at the USEM Manila and we got a hard hit when it came to my income. I get a lil over 21,000 at work a year.

So can someone tell me what is the poverty guideline? I've looked it up but I'm confused.

What are other supporting documents can we submit?  FYI : I dont have assets, properties, or stocks. (sad)

Also, can I add my SSI benefits as an add up to my income?

Thank you for all your help guys.

I-864P has the minimum income guidelines for filing a petition.

 

For a K1 it is 100%. 

 

USCIS can consider the totality of the circumstances and require more so the K1 does not become a public charge.

 

Odd thing is that USEM  usually doesn't look at the I-134s
