Things to prepare while waiting.

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

I am a US citizen and I am currently living here in the United States. My Spouse is living in Lebanon and I have already submitted the I-130 Package back in the beginning of October. I know the process takes time. I was wondering if there is anything I can do while we wait for our case to move from USCIS to the National Visa Center? Certain documents or what have you? Also when I submitted the I-130 I had just graduated and still had not found employment but now I am fully employed with a full time job. Is there anything I should do or be worried about? Thank You in advanced.

have not filed any taxes since 2013 since I was a student for 2 of the years and the rest I was living abroad in Lebanon and not making enough to file taxes abroad. I am now a full time employee, working in my field, at a reputable  firm in Seattle and started working in early December 2019. So there is some income on my 2019 W2. so here are my questions:

 

1) Should I consider finding a co sponsor since I have not filed taxes in 5 years 

2) What should I do about not having filed taxes ? Will this delay the process ? If so how can I avoid these delays ?

 

Thank You

Yes find a joint sponsor.   You still complete your support documents, along with the joint sponsor 

 

Write a letter explaining you were a full time student with no taxable income thus didn't file taxes.
