    Default Income Rqmt for I-134 (Affidavit of Support)

    Folks,
    i made only 12,000 for 2002. does it mean my fiance would not get the
    visa even if i have a co-sponsor?
    What is the minimum to sponsor her.
    Thanks for your time and answer.

    Default Income Rqmt for I-134 (Affidavit of Support)


    Just based on income, the requirement is 125% for a household of 2
    (you and your fiance/wife). Currently that's around $15,xxx. If you
    are below that value, get a co-sponser and you should have no issues
    with the VISA.



    Regards

    IS this the person who was previously deported, from your other post?

    If you are in the military, you need 100 percent of the poverty level.
    Most people would need 125 percent, which is about $15000 for a family
    of 2. If you make $12000, in theory you could replace the missing $3000
    by having $15000 (5 times the shortfall) in assets.

    I'm pretty sure that it's based on net income because I know that
    eligibility for other governement programs that are based on the FPIGs
    use net income.



    Question: I know that they ask for 3 years worth of tax returns but do
    they base their decision on your current income. I was in college and
    out of the country during the last 3 years and my income was pretty
    shabby. My current income is fine. I just want to make sure so I know
    whether or not to ask my parents to co-sponsor. Thanks!

    It was fine for the I-134 when I did that, and I filled out the I-864
    the same way for the AOS application. I wasn't making over 125%
    until a month or two before I filled out the I-134.



    But now I keep hearing conflicting information on whether or not we
    should get a co-sponsor for the I-864 for the AOS interview in December.
    My husband's salary is higher than mine, so it should be obvious he can
    support himself. And I'm still making over 125%. I wish I could find a
    definitive answer. My parents would be glad to co-sponsor, but I don't
    want them to do that unnecessarily. Any similar experiences?

    I doubt you're going to need a co-sponsor, Katina. Since you'll have
    lived together for 6 months at the time of the AOS interview you can
    count the income of both. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

    Thanks, I hope that's right because it's just easier that way. I
    don't remember a place on the I-864 for his income, but then I haven't
    looked at it since June.

    Information from http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigra...994.html#Forms

    Do the same income requirements apply to all immigrant visa applicants even if they use the I-134?

    No. The 125 percent minimum income requirement, the most recent year's tax return and other requirements only apply when an I-864 is needed. Applicants using the I-134 will need to show that their sponsor's income is 100 percent of federal poverty guidelines as required under Section 212(a)(4) of the INA.
