I-864

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So, I'm a student, and while I make enough money to meet the I-864 guidelines, it's not as though I have a monthly salary. (I don't even get paid in the summer absent a teaching position, so paystubs show an erratic pay history) And as a university, we run on a September to May schedule, so I can't get a letter indicating all disbursements for the year (since it's summer and *this* year hasn't officially happened yet.) I have a letter from the dean indicating my fellowship status for 2007-2008, a letter for my teaching position offer for the summer, and a letter concerning a prize I won. All included monetary amounts and if you add them together, I'm well over the poverty guideline. And FY 2006 shows a good income year and I have the tax transcripts.

Should that be enough? It worked for the I-134. Any other students have suggestions?

What's your tax return show? That's the only piece of evidence you are required to send.

I wouldn't send all those supporting docs. Save them in case you are RFE'd (which I don't think you will be) or for the interview (where you probably won't need them).

If it shows enough to meet the guidelines, I would think you're golden.

I wasn't sure how to interpret the one part in the instructions, whether the evidence of income wasn't required or was wink-wink-nudge-nudge- required. I'd rather just send in the transcript and skip the explanation of how student funding works, but I don't have a way to show what my *income* is now. Is the tax transcript really sufficient?

My tax return shows sufficient income.

Run over to uscis.gov and click on Laws and Regulations. Then go to Policy Memoranda.

Find the June 27, 2006 memorandum regarding the I864 and download the 27-page PDF.

I think you'll like what you read.
