Thread: affidavit of support

  1. #1
    Guest
    my wife(USC)income is below the poverty line for her household size while we're in the process of filing AOS.
    I make way more money and have been working and filing taxes for the last 3 years.I came on a visitor visa in 1998 and haven't change status of leave the country ever since.
    Of course i'm not authorize to work.
    My question is:Can I file an affidavit of support to help boost her income level?Will that cause any problem with my application?
    Thanks for your input.

    A friend of mine is in same situation. At the time of his first interview his affidavit of support was not accepted, instead he was told make a fresh A of S from some one who is us citizen. He was told he will be called for another interview in a month time. He is now waiting for second call since 11 months. He has approached ins number of times, wait- was the reply. So please check with a well qualified attorney & post ur comments for guidance of others who are in same boat.

    I have not recieved anything from INS yet BUT we filed out papers sometimes in Sept. and INS accepted it ALL including Affidavit of Support. From what I understand, and been told by the attorney, since they accpeted it it should suffice. Also, I have heard of other cases who have submitted their affidavit of support and were NOT USC and INS accepted AND proceeded!

    However, I STROGLY recommend clearing this up with a lawyer. GOOD LUCK!!

    I think only acceptance does not mean any thing. The problem comes when u go for interview that was the stage when my friend was told that ur A of S is not in order, although his forms were accepted at filing stage. U must check with ur attorney about this before u go for interview, because if they observe at that stage ur case is going to be delayed indefinately.

    Usually what people do is AFTER they get their work permit, they work and then they can supplement their USC spouse's income.
    I've read it somewhere on the board where they bring documentation at the interview.

    Hopefully someone who knows exactly what to bring will post a reply.

    Yes you can do it if you have a work permit and paid taxes.But again its a good idea to speak to a lawyer and find a USC to sign an additinal affidavit.
