NVC Suggesting Joint Sponsor despite meeting Affidavit of Support Income Requirements

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

CR1 NVC/ DQ'd

Any Visa Applicants  that succesfully used Assets to qualify for Sponsoring their spouse ? From what i have read so far is that it is can vary from Embassy to Embassy & is up to the Consular Officer to decide.

I am a retiree with Social Security & Private Company Pension Income & meet the required income per the guidelines for 2 household members.

I provided the Social Benefits Statement proof & proof of Benefits Statement from Private Corp. Additionally i also provided Bank Statements that show the direct deposits of both these sources of income each month. NVC accepted all submitted documents & Documentarily Qualified me but sent a note that I don't meet the minimum income requirement & the Consular Officer will make a decision. I have seen that this seems to happen to retirees with SS Income. Anyone with experience in a similar case ? I am aware that NVC only  just collects the documents required & do not make decisions for Visa Issuance.

You probably don't have tax returns showing over $21k since you have SS income that's tax exempt.  The response you got is standard verbiage when someone doesn't have 3 years of good tax returns.   Don't worry about if your income is higher than the 125% poverty line.  The US Embassy will see all your financial information and make the appropriate determination.

No worries.  Just ignore the message.  It's a stock message when the tax return doesn't show sufficient taxable income.  The Consular Officer knows how to consider your retirement income properly, based on the documentation you submitted.

Yes,  I have seen the exact same notification on various FB & other Immigration sites regarding this subject & it does appear to be a "Catch All" Boiler plate type response/notification as you have identified. You have definitely been very helpful & i see a lot of your responses helping others as well. So THANK YOU !!!       Hoping & praying for a succesful outcome.

Thank you for your encouraging response. Actually my Social Security is over 21K per year. And I have the Statement of Benefits from Social Security as proof. Also my bank account shows the direct deposit into that account from Social Security each month. So hope that is enough evidence to support proof of my Current Income. And yes, i have been reading that the note i received is a standard/boiler plate type notification & upon review by the Consular Officer it should be ok.
