  1. Hi ! So my husband (beneficiary) and I (petitioner) received this RFE for AOS. Short story long, we filed form I-864 and form I-864A with my parents as we lived with them. They sent us this RFE (attached) but now we don't need their affidavit anymore as we finally filed our taxes and made a bit above poverty line. Should I just submit our taxes and a letter explaining that we no longer need my parents? Or if it's easier what should I submit of proof that my parents are my household members and that we are related? this is 2 page This is 1 page This is 3rd page (sorry)
  2. Hello, Our case got DQd on June 29th, 2022 and we are currently waiting for an email regarding next steps. In addition to the DQ notice, we received a review note that stated the following: "This case does not meet the minimum income requirement to sponsor the intending immigrants. To avoid delays, an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 from a joint sponsor may be submitted. The consular officer will make a decision regarding this requirement at the time of the interview." My wife had just graduated University and started her first job at the time of this sponsorship process and so her tax documents at the time I guess did not satisfy the minimum income requirements. As we went along the process, she got a new job and has been there for almost a year and we uploaded documents showing her current salary which more than meets the requirements. I didn't think we needed to have a joint sponsor because of this. Now that this note is on our file, we have a joint sponsor and we have completed the AOS form and gathered the financial documents to support it. In terms of uploading this on to CEAC, is there a specific way this must be done? Firstly because this is a joint sponsor and secondly because NVC has already accepted our previous documents and have stated we are documentary qualified. So I'm wondering if we just upload as normal or do something differently. It even says "an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 from a joint sponsor may be submitted". I would like to do so anyways to avoid any further conflicts, delays, or issues. Secondly, at the time of me submitting my civil documents, my passport was not expired. It expired throughout the process. I have renewed my passport and have both my old and new ones with me. Should I be uploading the new one on to CEAC or is this not necessary? I'm assuming I should still bring both to the interview? Thank you for the help and feedback!
  3. Hi everyone! I have some questions about my case and help is very much appreciated. My interview date is close. 1- About the form I-134, it states that if the sponsor is married the spouse should also fill a separate form. How can the spouse fill it? What name does she put in the sponsor section? I'm having a hard time understanding it and there isn't much information in the internet. Another thing is the income part of the sponsor. With the new I-134 there is no part where the Sponsor writes his income, it says only how much of it will go to the beneficiary. What minimum is it required, My sponsor has said he will give me 1000$ for 4 months and also provide me with house and all other expenses. He has also put a bank account in the assets part. 2- Other than the taxes and wage receipts, do I need other documents to provide to the embassy from my sponsor? 3- Do I need to send the original documents with DHL to the embassy or I send copies of them? 4- Can I have another friend make me another affidavit of support just in case the first one is refused? Thank You!
  4. Good day, I saw a couple of posts from people who sponsored Ukrainians they are not related to or know personally. I was wondering how they were able to find each other? I am sponsoring a family who are my close relatives, but also have a good friend in need of sponsorship. We looked on welcome.us - there is only an option to sign up as a sponsor, but no links to resources where a Ukrainian could apply to be vetted for sponsorship from a volunteer. We would really appreciate any helpful information. Thank you!
  5. Hello to everyone, and thank you in advance for your responses. I have a quick question. I only have a tax return for 2020, but not for recent year. I'm working 2 jobs now, but I started one at the beginning of the year and the other one in March (making approximately $24,000 yearly, combining income of both jobs). I can provide a letter from my employer and also pay stubs. The thing is that I can't provide last year's tax return because I didn't have any income. I can now support my fiancé because I'm making more than it's needed and can also find someone to co-sponsor my fiancé. Would working 2 jobs and having a joint sponsor satisfy the income requirements or the last year income is very important? I have been suggested to file a non-income tax return. Should I file it?
  6. Hi, We both live in the UK so we are looking at getting a co-sponsor for my I-130 application as she has no US income or address. We are wondering about some of the requirements, namely' I believe that the co-sponsor is required to evidence a certain income level over the three years prior to the application. Could assets be counted instead? Is the co-sponsor required to show three years of tax returns? Is the sponsor required to show three years of tax returns if there is a co-sponsor? Is it required that we plan to form a household with the co-sponsor? Thanks, Cora
  7. Hi All, This is an extension to a different thread, but I started a new topic as the topic has changed: Our primary concern at this moment is does the consulate in Bogota accept cosponsors for the Affidavit of Support? I'm hopeful that we can use my parents as cosponsors as a backup in the event that my affidavit is not accepted because (a little background here): -I'm self employed and for several years have been able to write-off so many of my expenses that my reported income has been lower than the requirement. -Additionally complicating matters is that my return for 2020 was sent back to me with a "Request for Signature or Missing Information to Complete Return". I'm just discovering this because I moved shortly after filing and apparently it came back to my previous address. -I'm scrambling to complete my 2021 return which will show income above the required threshold for 2021, but unless it is processed in time for the interview I will only have my 1040 as opposed to an IRS transcript. Can I submit the 1040 as supporting evidence or can I only use IRS transcripts? -I can prove assets well above the 3X minimum annual earnings requirement, mostly in the form of a fully owned home and fully owned vehicle. Can prove assets in lieu of providing tax documents to get approval at this stage of the process, or is this only applicable to when she's state-side and we're applying for permanent residence? Thanks in advance for any assistance!
  8. We submitted our I-485 and I-864 back in June and now have gotten a request for evidence. The letter is very vague and just says that we do not qualify, which according to our understanding of tripple-reading everything and checking the limits, is not correct. Since the documents in the "Uploads" section are a little bit disorganzied and do not even include a scan of the submitted I-864, we suspect that they might have missed the form or evidence we submitted. So we want to re-submit our I-864 and evidence. Our question (and worry) is: If they are still not pleased with this, will they simply ask us again for evidence or will they straight out deny our case?
  9. Hello. I hope you guys can help me out. I am filing i864 (affidavit of support) for mother and father who will be immigrating together to the US. I will fill separate i864s for them as indicated on the website (I am filling it online). 1. In Part 3, should I check both (please see attached) since I am sponsoring them Both and are coming together? In the instructions, they say, “If the spouse and/or children will travel with the principal immigrant, or within six months of the principal immigrant’s entry into the United States and you are sponsoring them, you should list the names and other requested information in the spaces provided in Item Number 2. If any dependents are not immigrating, will immigrate more than six months after the principal immigrant arrives.” 2. I can not find the spaces provided for Item Number 2. Where is it so I may list the name of my mother? Thank you!!!!
  10. My mom is going to be our joint sponsor. She filled out form I-864 and provided her tax return and tax transcript. Her income is well above the requirement and she is a US citizen. She is married so she has a joint tax return with my dad. But her income is higher than his and she makes enough to be our joint sponsor on her own. We are being told (not professional advice) that my dad needs to be the joint sponsor just because his name is above hers on the tax return and that my mom needs to complete form I-864 A. We don´t understand why because my mom´s income is high enough for her to be the only joint sponsor. So is she ok to be our joint sponsor or is the person helping us correct here? Thanks.
  11. Hey all! Hope you're all doing well! I am twenty three years old and happily married to my wife who,as you may have guessed by me joining this forum is a US citizen, however am Canadian I would love by all means to be able to love with her in the United States however my medical history concerns me , I as a teen had been in and out of voluntary psych wards at my local hospital due to self harm and a suicide attempt, I've been four years clean now from any of that behavior I am not medicated nor do I see a psychiatrist, never needed follow ups o just sort of took life by the horns and made the changes necessary to get out of that loop. Here I had thought that I left that past buried behind me now come to find out it has a possibility of keeping me from living in the ISA with my wife? I am not sure how I would explain my situation nor if my family doctor would be able to write a note in support as I haven't ever had regular visits with her ( year or so gaps at a time) . I'm not sure where to go with this ,I'm quite nervous to be honest. I won't lie at all during the medical obviously as that would be an even worse decision I just need advice on what to do. To my knowledge I've never been formally diagnosed with anything. And was only ever in the past a risk to myself never others in any way shape or form. Any advice is extremely appreciated. Hope you all and your families are well.
  12. My wife (American, the sponsor) is a stay-at-home mom these days, while I (British, the applicant) have a well-paid job with a US company. On the DS-260 application they added a case note that says: Can I, as the applicant, fill out Form I-864 and act as the financial guarantor of my own sponsor?
  13. I have received an email from the NVC to submit W2/1099 form of the joint Sponsor. He is self employed and did not receive or file for any W2 and 1099. What can we do to fulfill this request? We have been waiting for almost 2 months for this same request but don't know what to do. We've asked this question on NVC inquiry as well but I hear they can take up to a month or more to reply according to the wait time listed on their website. I had my accountant write a statement stating the above, would that be good enough for the NVC?
  14. Hello I've been asking myself this for a time now, and I'm hoping someone here has a better idea on this. Me and my current employer are on the process of getting me and my wife the green card. We are in the advertising phase. recently I got a job offer from another company and they are aboard on continue the green card process. Is this possible? Can I continue the green card process with a new employer? Or do I need to re-do everything? Thanks in advance
  15. I hope somebody can help me! I have my interview in 15 days! My sponsor is Retired so it’s a little different with the bring 2 months of paystubs and w2s he doesn’t have those. He gets monthly income from Social Security and then he gets income from Investment Retirement, he draws one big sum of money once a year and he does that mid February.. So I’m kinda confused what to bring bc he doesn’t know until mid February what he will draw from his retirement for his income for 2021 and my interview is first week of February and second can couple months of bank statements be good to show what Social security deposited as income? He usually gets that paper that social security sends to show what his monthly benefits will be for the year but he hasn’t got that yet!
  16. Hello, How do I sign the Affidavit of Support for NVC? Should I print it, sign and then rescan and upload to NVC? This is for I-130 application. Thank you in advance.
  17. Hello, I'm Software Engineer and I'm trying to migrate to USA by some work visa, but no one company (even giants) sponsors H1B visa? There is always a row in the job posting that says, that company unable to sponsor work visa, and I also got a rejection from Google with that content (see attached screenshot). So, what is wrong with this type of visa? I know a couple of software engineers who migrated to the USA by this visa, but now it's impossible to find a sponsor. Regards, Armen Zatikyan
  18. Hello everyone, I am considering sponsoring my mother and sister to come live with me in the US. I am a citizen. I work all the time and I can't travel to see them very often. We hate the distance and I need them to be with me, mostly my blind sister, for obvious reasons. I am reading horror stories online, about petitions for siblings being denied. Is this something feasible that I can pursue? If this doesn't work out, I will have to move back overseas and take care of my family. Thanks!
  19. Hi!! I’m an aspiring international student in the US but I need help with something when I filled out my DS-160, I answered ‘self’ to the sponsor question since the first year is coming out of my own savings. However it didn’t let me add any additional sponsors and my father is going to be funding the remaining 3 years for my computer science degree, will it be an issue if I turn up on interview day and name him as a sponsor for my studies if i haven’t explicitly stated that on my form? also, do sponsors need to sign anything official themselves to say they’ll be paying for my studies??
  20. Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and recently looking at trying to move over to the US with my girlfriend who is from there. The ideal pathway seems to be through the E3 visa. For context, I am a Medical Device Sales Representative with a 3 year bachelor degree in pre-medicine, health and science. Now my concern is that my degree is not 4 years but I am wondering if my sales experience is enough to account for qualification for this specialty occupation? I have over 3 years experience in retail sales and almost 1 year in medical device sales. I will be starting to apply for sales roles at medical device companies in the US very soon as we would like to move over there in September 2021. With my background, is an E3 visa possible? Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated!
  21. Good Evening Visa Journey. I have a question and I am so certain this has been answered so many times before. What do you guys think is the best route and WHY to bring family over. I am referring to Parents and Siblings. I am still a Legal Permanent Resident, and I know I would want to bring my family over once I am a Citizen. Please advise what is the best route? also provide on average, the timeframes. I noticed recently that siblings were added or may have always been there but I do recall it being mentioned that this would change with the Biden administration? Form I-130/I-130A Instructions for Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, and Form I-130A Supplemental Information for Spouse Beneficiary (uscis.gov)
  22. So basically I moved to South Korea early Feb 2019.. When tax season came along in 2020 I didn't file for my taxes because I was unemployed living with my husband for that year...so I didn't know I had to do my taxes as I didn't make any money in or outside of the US that year. When attaching documents to my I-864 should I just include this as a reason I can't submit my recent tax return?... I do have a joint sponsor (my sister in law) who we will be staying with temporarily when we move back to the US....But I'm worried my reason isn't valid???
