We filed in January 2020 and on August 3rd 2020 we received 'Request for Evidence' paperwork for two different documents:


I've attached the letter  --- https://ibb.co/Ctmh7Pb https://ibb.co/xz3SgDS


1 - The applicant must provide a copy of the birth certificate. We submitted one but the one her mother sent over to the United States did not have 

the parents names on the document for some reason. This shouldn't be as issue and can be done fairly quick.


My main concern is # 2 which is the I-864. I'm at a loss of what to do. They are saying based on the documents they have received they could not determine

that I am qualified ( the petitioning sponsor). I sent them my 2018 tax returns which was just under the 125% poverty limit. I had yet to file for 2019

but have done that recently and it is over the poverty limit. Should I use the 2019 tax return as well? They are also asking for pay stubs (which I sent in) but the major issue is I am

currently unemployed due to COVID. I have a job prospect within the next week to return to work, and I could send them my previous pay stubs again but will that even matter ?

On the paper is states 'prospect for future employment'. They also want assets which I don't own my house ( I rent) and I also don't own my vehicle ( I make on time payments every month)

I don't have stocks or bonds.

I'm so worried that if I resend everything I have that it still wont be enough and they will deny the application.  I wish they were most specific on what didn't qualify as in they didn't have enough paystubs or if it was the AGI on 2018. Should I chance it again and resend my documents, or try to involve someone else as a joint sponsor ?

Get a Joint Sponsor.


Your 2018 tax return did not meet the I-864 requirements.


Your 2019 tax return isn't going to help since you no longer have that job.


Also, your current income is zero since you're unemployed.  

Should I still re file as a joint sponsor with the other person as well since I am the spouse?
