  1. Hey everyone, Okay so I have some questions regarding the Affidavit of Support (I-134) and joint sponsors If the petitioner dosent fully meet income requirements (student), do we complete an I-134 form for BOTH the petitioner and a joint sponsor? If a joint sponsor is used (a parent for example), can the joint sponsor (parent) include the spouses (other parent) income as well as assets or something...idk if that makes sense? if so...how? What documents am I required to bring to the interview regarding financial stuff (I-134, tax returns, etc). When the embassy received my petition, I got an email saying they need me to bring the I-134 as well with last years tax returns...is it safe to assume that this is all I need or is there anything else I can bring to prove I won't be a public charge? If so, what? From my understanding, not all embassies accept joint sponsors. How do I find out if my embassy accepts them (I think they do but I just want to make sure)? Cheers, Dan
  2. Hi all I am a K1 Visa recipient and my husband and I are filing our AOS soon. I have a question regarding the required tax documentation on the I-864, Affidavit of Support. I understand that if we file AOS before the end of 2019 our most recent tax year would have been 2018, and we've got that. But if we file in January 2020, would our most recent tax year be 2019 already, thus requiring the proper documentation for 2019 instead? I ask because the company my husband works for doesn't send out W2s until February, but we REALLY don't want to wait any longer to file our AOS because my I-94 had been expired since October 22nd. We've planned to file this December 16th but something came up, and we might have to reroute the budget for that one onto something else.... sigh (I know, I know, we're filing late, but life happens and so here we are...) 😅 So I'm thinking: 1) Perhaps USCIS would allow the submission of 2018 records due to the fact that tax season for 2019 won't be over until April 2020 anyways? 2) Perhaps we could include an explanation on our cover letter as to why we're submitting 2018 records despite 2019 ending? So yeah, I would appreciate any input from anyone who can help. Thank you all
  3. Hi everyone! I need some help with a few items on the I-864, if anyone could kindly assist: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Page 4 Part 5., 1.-3. (Sponsor's Household Size) Persons you are sponsoring in this affidavit: 1. Provide the number you entered in Part 3., Item Number 29. - 1 Persons NOT sponsored in this affidavit: 2. Yourself -1 (auto-populated) 3. If you are currently married, enter "1" for your spouse. > My husband is my sponsor, and we are married, but if we put "1" then it makes our total Household Size: 3, when it's just the two of us. We are aware we shouldn't count any member more than once. Should this be "0", then? Even if we are married? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Page 5 Part 6., 24.a.-24.c. My total income (adjusted gross income on Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form 1040EZ) as reported on my Federal income tax returns for the most recent three years was: > We are able to gather only the most recent year, 2018. Will leaving the other years blank cause any RFEs and/or denial? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I would appreciate any input. Thanks!
  4. My fiancé visa got approved and has been sent to the Canadian embassy. We are currently waiting for P3 so we can apply for DS-160 application. Just my luck today I got fired at my current job. Now I’m wondering how to go about financial support for my fiancé. so last year I worked only 4 months and o filed my 2018 taxes but i didn’t make enough. Now this year I have been working for 7months till I lost my job today. If my fiancé’s brother agrees to sponsor him and meets the income requirements would I only need to provide his 2018 income tax papers and not mine at the interview? Or would I have to provide mine as well. Could our visa be denied if they find out I got fired and won’t have a job to support my fiancé anymore although his brother is our co-sponsor? at the interview , if they ask my fiancé why I stopped working should he honest and just say “she got fired” or should he Say “she decided to change careers as explore other opportunities.. something along those lines. I’m wondering if they contact employers ?
  5. Hey guys. Just wondering about the financial aspect of the K1 visa. I am wondering what I will need to provide to prove my income since I did not work a lot the previous year and so my income on my tax returns were very low. However , I currently have a new job where I have been working for 7 months and my income meets the requirements based off my rate of pay. What would I provide if asked for my income since I haven’t filed my income tax for this year yet.
  6. WaSHINGTON/SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - When Arturo Balbino, a Texas construction worker, walked into his visa interview at the American consulate in the northern Mexican border town of Ciudad Juarez in March, he wasn't nervous. He felt good. Balbino, a 33-year-old Mexican national who had entered the United States illegally 14 years ago, thought he had a strong case for a spousal visa: a wife and children who are U.S. citizens, a father-in-law who had pledged in an affidavit to financially support him if necessary, and a letter from his employer guaranteeing him an $18-per-hour job upon his return. When he went for the interview, he was at the final step of legalizing his status, which would, he hoped, pave the way for a more stable life for himself and his family. Instead, the consular officer denied his application on the grounds that he could become a drain on U.S. taxpayers by requiring government financial assistance, according to documents reviewed by Reuters. That decision stranded Balbino in Mexico indefinitely and upended his family’s life. More and more aspiring immigrants – especially Mexicans – are being denied visas based on determinations by the U.S. State Department that they might become "public charges," dependent on the government for support, according to official data and interviews with attorneys, immigrants and their family members. Lawyers for some immigrants say consular officers are denying visas even when applicants fulfill legal requirements to prove they will be financially independent. The refusals, capping an often complex and lengthy application process, can trap people for months or longer outside the United States, separated from American spouses and children, as they renew their efforts to legally return. Some may never be able to go back. One reason for the rise in refusals are little-known changes last year in the State Department's foreign affairs manual that gave diplomats wider discretion in deciding visa denials on public-charge grounds.

  7. First off I apologise of I come off as rambly, my anxiety is through the roof right now thanks to a combo of a severe anxiety disorder and autism. And also if I'm posting this incorrectly - I've never posted here before. I'm submitting my interview letter tomorrow, but I'm super worried I'll have done it too late because I've worried so much about making sure I have everything. I had my medical exam last month on the 21st, and I'm just getting around to sending the letter tomorrow. I'm so scared that I'll have wasted time, which I feel like I definitely have in arranging the interview. I had an unpleasant experience with my medical examinor making me uncomfortable and I've had to wait and get some extra paperwork to forward to them to boot (All sorted now though) I'm immigrating from NZ to the US, and I have no clue how long getting an interview takes since I can't find a solid source that tells me a rough estimate. I feel completely insane, and I don't blame you if you read this and think so too. I miss my man so much, and I hate coming to him constantly over my worries because in my head I know there's nothing I can do and I'm doing my best where I can, but the anxiety is crippling some days. Today is one of those days. Am I worrying too much? Is there anything to worry about, or am I just driving myself mad with worry? Any support, or advice or just an internet hug would be appreciate it.

  11. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone would be able to help with one of the issues on I-134. I am technically employed by a company but I usually only work a total of around 16 hours per month with them. My primary income comes from my self-employment/contracting full time job. On part 3 of the I-134 it asks for my employer name etc. I am wondering if I need to include my "employer" or if I should just leave that blank and give them my self employment information. Anyone ever have this situation, what do you think?
  12. Hi 😀 I'm a US citizen, filed for my spouse may 2018 I got a letter stating it was accepted, and now oct 2018 I received another letter I-797 notice of approval and that after 30 days I can email then to ask status, I’m just curious if someone can kind of give me a timeline or breakdown of how their process went and what happens next and what or when I should be expecting things to move
  13. Hi, I am a US citizen. I married in Feb 2018, I filed I-130 for my spouse who is in pakistan. I sent all my paperwork in April 2018 and received a letter stating everything has been accepted and will be getting sent to Potomac location. then Oct 26 I got a I-797 again but this time it was much more detailed, it stated that my paperwork is now being transferred to National Visa Center for processing for Visa and now they will contact beneficiary, it also says to allow 30 days before contacting them and it also gave their email. I am just curious to know if anyone has been through something similar and how long approximately did everything take? I am hearing so many mixed things from friends and also a relative of mine who went through something similar and she is now here with her spouse within a year so please any info would be nice lol. also, I was told by someone since i am a US citizen the "Visa Bulletin" doesn't matter for me since i am not a permanent residence(green card holder) but a us citizen
  14. I'm getting a lot of mixed information, I was told to submit the affidavit of support so my fiancé could take it to his interview and now im being told no it isn't necessary can someone please help so I don't do the stupid thing and prolong the process even more.. thank you!!!
