I claim only myself. Would it cost me more money to for the dangers?
Let me make sure you understand my question regarding being a co-sponsor. When the immigration officer looks at my three years tax returns and see that 18k(SS pension is not taxed) only the 6K private pension is taxable. Are you sure because i was told otherwise? thanks
Good point. I receive SSI. I full out form 1040. Line 37 is adjusted gross income in my case it is 9,000. I was told that it has to be about 24,000 in order to be a cosponsor? The paralegal told me that it is to low and that i could not be a cosponsor. I furnished a copy of Form SSA-1099-Social Security statement but it was not good enough.
I read the article quickly.I am sorry that made a mistake in telling you that i get SSI. I do not get that one! I retired at 62 in order to get retirement pension from Social Security( I worked for 37 years) does this SS pension that I receive is ok for being a cosponsor? Can you e-mail me your answers so I make a hard copy and show the paralegal and can you send your phone# XXXXX she can call you to allay any fear she may have regarding me being a cosponsor? Thanks for you help and will give you a good rating. will wait for answer>
