Immigration Issues/I-864 Affidavit of Support
Although I will have a co-sponsor who is above the minimum income level, I have concerns of how I should fill out the I-864 Affidavit of Support. In May, I returned to the US from Southeast Asia where I was a teacher. Currently I do not have a job in the USA, but I will start graduate school in the USA in the Fall of 2007 where I will receive a stipend from the school that is above the 125 poverty level for two people.
Could I write down the graduate school and stipend amount in Part 6 of the form as my employer and current individual annual income, respectively? Could I attach documentation (the offer letter) from the school as evidence of expected income? Or should I check (d) and state that I am unemployed?
Put that you are unemplyed. Supplenment it with an affidavit that you are not currently working and can not provide a current job letter, but can provide proof of a job offer. Then also provide the I-864 for the co-sponsor with their documents.
