Changes in income and employment after filing affidavit of support

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

My in-laws IR-5 petition is currently at NVC and still awaiting interview scheduled having been documentary qualified since October 2020. The affidavit of support filed at that time has my husband listed as the main sponsor and myself as the joint sponsor since his income alone did not meet the requirement at that time.

 

Since then my husband has been promoted in the same company and now makes well over the income requirement not needing me any more as joint sponsor. Also since then, my job and income has changed. 

 

 

My question is do we need to submit a new affidavit of support with updated income/job information before their interview gets scheduled? If so what are the steps in doing so. 

 

 

Any information would be of great help. Thanks!

This is for your husband's parents? If yes, then, did you fill out a I-864 or I-864A.  As his spouse, and you are combing your income with his, then you would just fill out the I-864A as a supporting household member.  A joint sponsor is someone who fills out the I-864 to support the immigrating person fully based on their income.

 

If he now qualifies with just his income, then I would suggest he completes a new I-864.   It will be needed for the interview because the one from 2020 would not have updated information - mainly, 2020 taxes.  

 

What is your in-laws country?  Have you checked with the regional forums for you embassy?  Do you know if you in-laws might get scheduled for an interview anytime soon?  If so, then it would might be better to leave the status alone at NVC and give the new I-864 to your husband's parents to take to the interview.  If it seems it will still be a while for the interview, then perhaps wait for next year to have 2021 taxes ready.
