  1. I have gone through the same process very recently. In fact, I'm currently on the plane to US with CR-1 visa in my passport issued by US embassy in London. Would be happy to discuss what my pack contained. Drop me a private message.
  2. Thank you. I know I'm overthinking, but that's human nature when you're thousands of miles apart from your spouse and any minor discrepancy might appear more important than it actually is. IF there were any issue with filing just the 1040 for the last year (without any other forms that we don't have) I will make an update on this thread.
  3. I may be wrong here, but I'm not sure this is correct. To set it straight - I am the beneficiary, not the petitioner. Petitioner lived with me in the UK for the past 5 years. We have initiated the visa proceedings by submitting the I-130 with the London Embassy directly (DCF process). The "package" you're referring to includes forms such as W2s and 1099s - this is not something a petitioned would have as they have not worked in the US for the past 5 years. All we have is a 1040 form, which doesn't really prove anything. To summarise, we have tax transcripts of 2019 and 2020; 2021 transcript is pending/delayed. We also have 1040 for the aforementioned tax years. The nature of DCF application is different to a normal application - we lack some financial documents that you're referring to as petitioner has not been employed in the US until the last several weeks.
  4. That's correct. Then the following paragraph says: "You may also choose to submit IRS Form 1040 or 1040EZ, however, those documents do not serve as proof of income. In order to demonstrate sufficient income to meet the HHS guidelines, you must submit either an IRS Tax Return Transcript (which covers all needs for income verification purposes), or IRS Form W2s." And that is why I find it confusing. Why submit it if it serves no purpose? I'm aware of it. However, this is something that is required when submitting I-864, no? To make this a bit more confusing, what's the point of proving past income, which was earned outside of US? Petitioner has now moved back to USA where they have started a new job (hence the reasoning for the DCF application)...
  5. I was hoping for this until I came cross this document on the US Embassy in Congo website. It states that 1040 does not serve as proof of income and that a tax transcript must be submitted instead. Having said that, I'm not sure whether the same rules apply across all embassies. Maybe the embassy in London is more lenient..?
  6. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone had any issues recently with obtaining the processed transcript for the most recent tax return? My understanding is that it is a required piece of evidence when submitting I-864. In our case, tax return was filed in June 2022 by mail from the UK and it has not been processed yet. As many would know, it is near-impossible to speak to anyone who works for IRS... I am estimating that I should hear from the London embassy in just over 3 week's time with the instructions of the next steps, one of which will include filing the I-864 and it am getting increasingly worried that the delayed tax transcript will result in the delay in filing I-864.

  7. I second to Zack as I'm in a very similar situation as him. I (beneficiary) and my spouse (petitioner) are both living in the UK. My spouse was offered a job back in USA. Since then, we have submitted the I-130 at the US embassy in London and were told we would qualify for the DCF. It is not uncommon that the petitioner has to move back to USA before the beneficiary receives their visa. It appears that you are implying that now we would need to start the process all over again? I don't believe this to be correct. Beneficiaries would just wait to hear from the embassy about the next steps (e.g. submitting DS-260, I-864, booking a medical and the interview etc.).
