I am the mother of a 23 years old US citizen who is also
I am the mother of a 23 years old US citizen who is also classified as person with limited mental abilities. We are currently living in Egypt and we've initiated the process of sponsoring me for the US green card. The initial I-30 has been approved and now I have an NVC case number ***** have completed all required forms to submit for the green card but am stuck with filling form I-864. This form needs to be filed by my son who is classified as special needs and does not have the capacity to do so. As his legal guardian, I'm also his financial manager , and I find it confusing to have him file as my financial sponsor. I am capable of self sponsorship and can get extra help from a friend to act as a co-sponsor. Not sure how to proceed. I need help / guidance filling form I-864 … read more

I hope you can help me get my questions answered. I am a
I am a permanent resident. I got married in November 2020 and we filed Forms i-130 and i-485 for my husband. Recently we have received RFE for Form i-864 asked provide Sponsor Income proof (pay stubs for previos 6 months, letter of employment). The RFE states "Based on the documents submitted with Form i-864, for the petitioning sponsor, the income does not meet 125% of the proverty guideline. Submit evidence from a qualifying joint sponsor". The fact is that when submitted these forms, we attached my 2019 Tax Return, my assets of $50,000 and my husband's assets of $70,000. That year I worked for only 1 month and earned $4,000 only. Then I got injured, underwent surgery and could not work. Therefore, only $4,000 are indicated in my 2019 Tax Return. I did not work until November 2020, I underwent a second surgery. In 2020, I also worked for only 1 month (December) and earned about $3,500. We filed our 2020 Tax Return jointly. The total income was $27,000 (line 9 of form 1040). Most of it is earned by my husband. In 2020, I received settlement for my injury of $50,000, which is not taxed and was not included in our 2020 Tax Return. Since April 2021, I began to work permanently and over the past 2 months my earnings amounted to $8,000.Thus, my annual income will be about $48,000 in 2021.I have 2 questions: In response to RFE, we want to provide our joint tax return for 2020 with an income of $27,000, indicate my assets of $50,000 received for injury, as well as proof of my $8,000 earnings in the last 2 months. Is it enough to provide these documents? Can we indicate my husband's assets additionally? 2. Do we need an additional joint sponsor, since in fact in 2020 I earned only $ 3,500 and our assets and his income for 2020 are not counted? … read more
