  1. Hi all, In 2019 I sponsored my mother to immigrate to the US and now she is a green card/permanent resident living with me. In Feb 2020, I got married to my husband in Pakistan. In 2017, 2018 and 2019 I made an average of $79k per year at my government job. ($99k/yr in 2019). I am now preparing the CR-1 application and wanted to know : Is my income enough to sponsor my husband on my own or do I need a co-sponsor? does the USCIS care if you have previously sponsored your parent before and are responsible for them financially and prevent them from becoming a public charge? please share. thank you so much in advance.
  2. Hi, During the K1 visa waiting period after sending off the I-129F application (in October), my fiance visited me in the UK in November. To get ahead and be prepared for the next steps, I printed out the Affidavit of Support and Letter of Intent so he could sign it whilst he was here (rather than have him sign it in the US and post it to me). He had signed and dated it for that day in November, we've just received our NOA2 and are preparing the documents for the interview (not booked yet) and looking deeper found this page (https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/visa-information-resources/visas-news-archive/20161228_ink-signature-no-longer-required-on-affidavits-of-support.html). Can I still use the originally signed and dated form or is it best my fiance signs and dates to the most recent date and scans and sends that over to me instead? Is there a limit to how far back it can be dated? How about the Letter of Intent? Is this was also dated from November.
  3. Hello, My situation is: I'm a US citizen, never employed, and I'm dependent on my parent. they have been maintaining me my whole life. So I never filed taxes in my whole life. and I do not make any type of income ! nor I have any assets. The Case: I got married and my wife is filing AOS. For the affidavit, I had a joint sponsor filing separate i864. For my i864 I believe I'm required to attach a letter stating why I never filed taxes. what should be the reason to write, since I want it to look formal. I had this sample but I think it might need to be edited To Whom It May Concern I, ABCD, XXX's spouse and petitioning sponsor. I did not file any income tax return yet because I was and still dependent and maintained by my parents upon their income. Since I never had job or made any income of any type, I was not required to file an income tax return with the Internal Revenue Service. I, ABCD, certify under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States that the information I have provided in this statement are true and correct. Sincerely, ABCD help please or edit the sample Thanks

  5. 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
  6. Hello everybody! I'm in the process of applying for the AOS and I have a few questions if you guys can help me. -First my husband works under the table so he doesn't have the documents for the affidavit so we will be using a co sponsor, do I need a affidavit form for him as well or just of the co sponsor? -Once the K1 expires and the AOS is sent, what is my status in the US? What kinda of document I can use to show that I'm allowed to stay? -The documents that prove the relationship is real are only necessary for the interview correct? Thank you for your Help!
  7. It’s been 10 days that my husband’s affidavit of support fee is still in process but my (IV APPLICATION FEE) was accepted a week ago. I’m the applicant. Anyone knows why is that?
  8. Hi, So... as the title states, our interview is Jan 15 and we weren't able to get an Affidavit of Support, my fiancé (the petitioner) is currently unemployed and so am I. Our parents are supporting us until we move back to the U.S. together (he's living in my country at the moment), I was reading here that they haven't been asking for the Affidavit of Support in the interview at the Santo Domingo embassy. From experience, would the fact that the petitioner is unemployed trigger a request for an Affidavit of Support? Thanks in advance and if you have any questions to better help me, feel free to ask...
  9. 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
  10. 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!
  11. Hi folks, apologies if this has been answered elsewhere but I'm trying to figure things out! I noticed the affidavit of support that you have to take with you to the embassy for the K1 visa must have a "wet signature" - does that mean I have to ask my fiancé to fill the forms out, sign them and post them to me, or can he just scan his wet signed forms and send them via email? Anything that involves the post worries the heck out of me because you all know what our post system is like (I sent him passport photos in February and they took almost 3 weeks to arrive, I think they were held in customs?? like...they're photos...why? 😩) but if that's the way it must be done, so be it. If anyone could let me know I'd be very grateful! x
  12. Hi guys my fiance not enough income for sponsor me ... but her friend ready to be a cosponsor . so it is accepted ? She or he can be my co sponsor ?
  13. where do I send the I-134 affidavit if my fiancé is going to the US Embassy in South Africa?
  14. Hi. I want to add affidavits by people who knew us as a couple for I-751. But unfortunately my family does not live in USA. So can I have any of my family member write affidavit for me from their country or does the person has to be in USA?
  15. Hi all, Long time listener, first time caller here(!). My fiance and I live are applying for our K1 in Ho Chi Minh City. I am the beneficiary (UK). We are both English teachers living in Vietnam. We have sent off the DS-160 and are finalising documents for the interview. I have two questions surrounding the Affidavit of Support (my fiance's mother has agreed to co-sponsor, given that my fiance lives in Vietnam with me, does not have a job in the US, nor a homeowner etc.) 1) Does the co-sponsor (my fiance's mother) fill out a I-134 or I-864? My understanding is that I-864 was just for AOS further down the line, but we don't want to be tripped up at interview time. 2) Does my fiance also have to fill out a I-134 even though she does not clear the requirements? (And therefore also submit W-2s, IRS returns etc) Or can you just do it with one sponsor? many thanks for your support.
  16. Hello Everyone! Very new to the community but excited to be here.. So, a little background.. My fiancee & I have applied for the K-1 Visa in June 2018. In December, we received the first approval and then she completed her medical in March, moved here in May from Sweden. I'm above the Poverty Guidelines by the USCIS / DHS. We will be getting married next week, nothing crazy, just a standard Justice of the Peace Ceremony. We are so excited to have our lives together and plan to have the AOS submitted in the next few weeks or so. From my understanding, PA takes about 10 days after getting married. Any way.. Here's our dilemma, I have the opportunity for change employment. That is actually going to have me making double or even close to triple to what my current income is now. So, there is an offer on the table that is extremely tempting (Obviously). I would be leaving one well-known established company for another well known & established corporation. There is no worry of the company falling apart at anytime. My only concern is that when the employment is all said & done with changing jobs it may negatively affect the Adjustment of Status. Interesting how life throws you a curve ball. I know changing jobs would probably mean more paperwork, which I do not mind. We have conquered the Mountain so far. Summary: I have a new job offer, everything will not be said & done until after I submit the AOS because of the timing. Can changing jobs affect me? Can changing jobs so close to submitting the AOS negatively affect me? Is there anyone out there that can relate or help me? Please and thank you for your help!😄
  17. Hi everyone, Just filed the I-129F and I'm looking ahead to next steps. For the affidavit of support, I'm just wondering if last year's tax return is necessary. My income is well above the poverty line, but I began this job in May and therefore my last tax return will not reflect my current employment. I was a graduate student for the past two years and only worked part-time (would not meet the poverty line I believe with my part-time income). Any help is appreciated! Thanks, Kailyn
  18. Hello! I have a question regarding the wording about affidavits and statements in the RFE. The RFE states that" "Written statements sworn to or affirmed by two persons, other that yourself and the person you are petitioning for, who were living at the time of the event(s) occurred, and who have personal knowledge of the event you are trying to prove..." Does this mean two separate letters, off two separate people? Or each statement/affidavit must have two witnesses signing it? Also, do we need to get statements from family members notarised? We might be guilty of over thinking this but my fiancee is going to send the evidence back to USCIS this weekend and we just what check to see if it's all right. Thank you for your help!
  19. My wife had her interview on May 20 for her f21 visa at US Embassy in Nepal and she was approved at the interview and was given a white approval card which says approved and instruction to collect passport. The status on ceac shows Aministrative processing since then and after looking up on VJ, it sounds like normal after interview. Now when I log in into ceac on page where we uploaded all our AOS documents and civil documents, the AOS section shows INCOMPLETE and has 864EZ line item as missing. I already submitted the regular 864 during the NVC process and everything showed completed until after interview. They din't ask for any further documents at the interview or even after interview. They didn't keep any documents at the interview as well beside Medical and kept passport. All the copies of original documents, 864, tax documents and even the passport photo was returned back after interview. I was in impression that they keep copies of civil documents and the tax documents but they didn't and i am kinda confused. May be they just use the scanned copies that we uploaded during NVC?? Is it normal or did embassy mess up something ? May be that can bring impact on the admin processing ? Can anyone who recently got approved verify for me if they have similar situation ?
  20. Just wondering, do we have to send a copy of the Affidavit of support to the NVC BEFORE the Adjustment of status interview? Our interview is April 30th and we haven't submitted it anywhere the letter just says to bring the affidavit docs to the appointment. Thanks!
  21. Hello, one and all! I'm new to this here community, but my fiance directed me to you because I've been plugging away at K-1 paperwork today and the flowchart of Visa progression really helped settle a bit of my anxiety! But of course, I still have a good many questions to ask and not many answers are forthcoming. As the topic title states, I'm currently struggling with the whole Affidavit of Support section required for my interview with my Embassy in London, UK. It is listed as a required document, but then goes on to state that it MAY be required. My fiance and I want to be ahead of the game (I already have everything else done and prepared from the checklist; DS-160, ACRO, Birth Certificate legal copy, Evidence of Relationship... you name it!!), so we'd really appreciate it if somebody could clarify whether the Affidavit of Support is required for us to file on the K-1. As an aside, I'm currently in contact with the school district where I'm moving to in the Lacey/ Olympia area of WA, and have submitted an application to be a Substitute Teacher with them. So, if that proves fruitful, would I be right in saying that they could provide me with the evidence of support? Thank you all for reading! And wish us luck for a speedy rest of the Visa process.
  22. My tax returns gross is less than 125% but more than 100%. I have a new job in which I started 4 months ago my pay is wayyy higher than 125% now. I am including 2 months worth of pay stubs, my previous tax return along with a letter explaining. I am tryimg to get something from my job because they said they dont do letters. My fiance interview is in 2 days. What are the chances of me being denied for being below 125% poverty on previous tax returns although I get paid more now.
  23. hi all! so I just submitted all my docs to CEAC and almost all of them were rejected with a problem. the thing that is the most confusing to me is that I as the petitioner filed the I-864 because you have to for affidavit of support. I am currently unemployed as I just moved home from living overseas. My father is the joint sponsor and makes enough. They said that he didn't fill out the I-864A because I was told he didn't need to and that it was just the I-864 from him and from me. does anybody know about this? I don't see why he needs to fill out an I-864a if he already did the I-864. thank you!
  24. please help! I submitted the past 3 years of tax returns for myself and my co sponsor.. as per the request on CEAC stating "tax return or transcript" I got a notice saying they cannot accept those documents and I need to send in a transcript. Unfortunately the IRS won't let me retrieve it online or by e mail and their service center is so backed up they won't take calls. did anybody run into this issue? which tax documents did you submit? I am trying to find a way to get around this as its the thing holding us back from getting to move on. thanks
