  • marriage and sponsor

    I am from Europe(out of status) and my wife is a USC.
    We want to start my aos procedure. My wife is a student and she has not got the necessary income to be my sponsor. How should we deal with this problem to meet the necessary 125% poverty line requirement??
    Please give me an advice. Can anybody else be a sponsor on her behalf?

      She needs to petition for you by filing I-130 and you will need to file AOS I-485, EAD I-765 and other documents. You can download complete package of Marriage based AOS from www.immigration.gov
      Since your wife does not have sufficient income to meet poverty lines, her family can give you an additional Affidavit of Support. In case her parents are claiming her as their dependant then they will just need to fill Household Agreement between Sponsor and Household member. In addition to that you can also get a Natorized job offer from some potential employer.
      Good luck.

        Thank you Umesh.
        I am working off the book and making enough to meet the poverty line requirement. Is it okay even if I am not yet authorized to work?
        Thank you again.

          You should talk to some CPA and ask him, if you and your wife can file joint tax return, since you are working off the books. CPA will be the best person to guide you on financial aspects.
          Good luck.

            The INS/BCIS also has discretion to issue the EAD that will allow you to work now. You have to show that you will meet the 125% guideline by the time of the interview.
