Proof of income CR1/No past 3 tax returns

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! 

I am back, with other two questions! I am so sorry if I am bothering you, however I have few doubts out of the blue... 

 

What is a good proof of income? I read that a formal letter from my husband employers would be fine... What could he need? 

 

My husband didn't have enough money 3 years ago therefore his previous tax returns... Are bad... 

 

 

 

Thank you so much for understanding my questions-

He needs current proof of income, paid stubs, employer letter, bank statements... If he didn't file tax, he needs a sworn statement why he didn't file tax. If he doesn't have anything, find a joint sponsor.

He is going to have two jobs but we didn't want to wait a whole new year for starting the process... So this upcoming year he will be gucci,what worried me were the 3 previous negative tax returns because he earned less than 20k

lIKE I said, he can't send what he doesn't have. So a sworn statement why he didn't file tax will be sufficient, current income is what matters.

I don't think it's a matter of not having the returns, just that they do not paint a good picture. Correct? Either way, a copy of the most recent year's return will be required, and the information for the other 2 years is required on the I-864.

Keep in mind this comes into play at the NVC stage, not at the tie of filing the I-130.

 

I would note that current income is king. That's what you make now, not what you made in the past. The other items are factors, but do not warrant a denial on the public charge basis alone.

Yap! Exactly, because my husband had 3 years where his tax return were... A lot below poverty line especially the year when he moved to Italy with me. 

 

Oh, well... I thought that the letters and paystubs would have been enough for the first part of this process...

Just because there was no requirement to file with a lower income doesn't mean you can't file. Simply backfile for the 3 years using the income that was earned  in each year. Problem solved!

He did file them but I was afraid that since he was having money issues 3 years ago they would have make us trouble for the income of the past 3 years
