Reporting foreign income of Non-Resident Alien spouse for American Opportunity Tax Credit

I am married to a Spanish citizen. We are still waiting for his interview date for the I-130 visa. I (US citizen) am working on filing taxes. I plan to attach from W-7 to get him a ITIN so that we can file as married, filing jointly. We want to claim the American Opportunity Tax credit because he took online classes in 2021 at a U.S. institution.

My question is, where do I put his foreign earned income (only about $7000 USD if you convert them from EUR) on form 1040?

TAX - Married, Filling jointly, while waiting on I-130 visa

This is a complicated question, but just curious if someone else has had the same issue/idea. Here are the details:

I (US citizen) am married to a Spanish citizen. We got married legally in Spain in 2020. We filed I-130 in September 2020. We are DQ'd at NVC, but awaiting interview date still.

My husband began taking online classes from a U.S. institution in Spring 2021, which cost ~$3000 USD.

He earned from working ~ 5,000 in the year 2021.

Question: If I file 2021 taxes as married, filing jointly, get him a TIN by filing form W-7, can I claim the American Opportunity Tax credit of $2500? How long does it take to file form W-7?

EAD - Job offer

Hi guys,

I was wondering if anyone had any insight on this matter.

I got a job offer from a federal funded company. When speaking to the HR rep he asked me what my status was and I told him that I'm pending my green card but that I have my employment authorization card and I am able to work in the US (I came with a K1). Apparently they need to do a background check through the Federal Government, and he wasn't 100% sure if my pending status was gonna be a problem or not. Are there any exceptions on what company you can work for with your EAD? On the job listing it only stated that "Must be authorized to work in the US" it didn't say anything that you had to be a resident/green card holder. Is there any chance that I would fail the background check for this reason in particular?

Thanks in advance!

NVC required documents for joint sponsor

We are currently at the NVC stage after having filed an I-130 petition for my husband (Spanish citizen) and I wanted to make sure I have all the documents required for NVC.

We are using a joint sponsor (my dad) who filed 2021 taxes as married, filing jointly. Does this mean my mom needs to fill out an i864A? Even though she does not work nor have any sort of income? My dad s income easily covers the 125% poverty line requirement.

I ve uploaded my W2, federal tax 1040 document from most recent year and i864,

I ve uploaded my dad s i864, proof of citizenship (passport), proof of us domicile, W2, federal tax income return 1040 from most recent year,

My husband s passport, passport photos, birth certificate, our marriage certificate, and police certificate.

Does it sound like we are missing anything else?
