    No you can't undue it after you withdraw it.

    You received the correct answer in your previous thread.  Once you have withdrawn a case, it is not reversible. You must start over from scratch.

    Right, and in this case it is selling your investment properties, and/or a joint sponsor.  You may actually need both.

    Unfortunately, you now have a 10-year ban.  I recommend seeking out an immigration lawyer with lots of experience filing extreme hardship waivers, if you would like a chance to return to the US before serving the remaining 7 years of your ban.  Also, your USC spouse should file the I-130 petition to start the IR1 process for you as soon as possible.

    You're borderline, at best.  A joint sponsor is in order.  Not obtaining one before the visa interview, will likely result in a delay, in my opinion.  Nevertheless, all you can do is all you can do.

    So you have no retirement income at all?  No Social Security, VA, etc.?  Is your equity in the apartments more than $66.000?  Should be comfortably more.  Do you have other liquid assets?  If not, you'll need a qualified joint sponsor, or to come back and get a job.
     
    Note that the domicile issue is directly connected to your affidavit of support.  Members are here to help, without limiting their comments to your direct questions.  We find that people going through the process for the first time, tend not to know what they don't know, so don't know what to ask or not ask.
     
    Your issues are not limited to whether you can list and document your equity.  The big issue is how a Consular Officer will consider it when making his judgment call.  Putting your real estate up for sale, would help with both the liquidity issue and the domicile issue.

    So, you and your daughter are combining income?  Do you NEED to combine income to qualify?  
     
    Proper procedure is for the Petitioner to act as primary sponsor and YOU to act as joint sponsor.  It appears you haven't even started to become an A-Student of the I-864 instructions.  Doing so, will be critical to your ultimate success.
     
    How to do it and complete the forms depends on your exact circumstances, but is clearly explained in the step by step instructions you haven't studied yet.  Nobody here is going to rewrite those instructions for you.  After your homework, come back and ask specific questions.

    They don't need to be translated for this purpose.  However, do you really have "no income" or is it just no taxable income?  Even if your equity in the two homes is far more than three times the income requirement, they might not consider the equity to be liquid enough to qualify you unless you sell first.

    Chancy's statement was correct.  Stopping the FIE does not change your current income, because current income doesn't come from any tax return.  In your case, it will be from an employer letter.  You're going to provide a complete copy of your tax return and they'll review all relevant parts of it, not just look at one number.  Think totality of circumstances and don't get hung up on one number on one line.

    It can be a friend, but it is now time for you and your husband to do some actual homework.  Study the guide for spouse visas here on VJ.  Download the forms and their instructions, then become A Students of both.
     
    Study the "contract" portion of the I-864 any joint sponsor must sign and decide if you want to put a friend in that situation.
     
    I suggested your husband go ahead of you and get a job, for several reasons.  When you do your homework, you will understand the reasons.

    Whether the Consular Officer will remove the joint sponsor is a judgment call.  You won't know until you ask.  Uploading something more will not impact the interview date.

    You, as a US citizen,  do not need a sponsor.  You, as spouse/petitioner of the new immigrant,  will be the primary sponsor for your husband, and you will, likely, need a joint sponsor.  You can avoid a joint sponsor if you have sufficient current income which will continue after re-locating to the US or sufficient assets.  Keep in mind that you will also have to show evidence that you intend to establish domicile in the US.  You might want to start read this:

    Your husband will petition for you as a spouse (I130), then eventually you will apply for a spousal visa (CR1/IR1 depending on the length of the marriage when the visa is approved).  If your husband does not meet the financial support requirements for the I864 form, he will need to find a joint sponsor.
     
    I would start here with your research.
     
     
    Good Luck!

    It's a "thing" in that it indicates where you will interview, but it means nothing more than that in a CR1 or IR1 case context.

    Never heard the term physically present used in this context.  Please quote what you are reading on any applicable form or its instructions that gave you your current "understanding".
     
    Using that logic, you would domiciled in the country in which you are physically present the day you sign and submit the I-864.  You can be anywhere in the world you want to be on that day.
     
    There's more detail but this is the language from the applicable instructions.  Item Number 5. Country of Domicile. Indicate the country where you maintain your principal residence and where you plan to reside for the foreseeable future.

    This happens rarely.  Usually, there are questions about YOUR past immigration matters, so be prepared.  That these interviews are rare is why there is no timeline for them.  It will depend on the backlog at the local office in Tukwila.

    Correct, and there is no reason to stop taking the FIE.  It won't help.  You just provide evidence the income will continue from the same source.  Just curious though.  Is your remote work for a US company or other?
