Q: I didnt file tax return. I didnt make enough. I am trying to help my husband... will he not be able to get his green
I have everything for affidavit... just tax return I don't have. He is finishing school this year... I don't want him angry
A: You will need to provide an affidavit stating under penalty of perjury that you did not file a return because you did not have the income necessary to require you file. If you were employed you will need to provide any w-2's 1099's.... to indicate the amount that you made.
Joshua Joseph Despain agrees with this answer
A: Even if you know you did not make enough income to qualify as a sponsor, if you are the petitioner you will still need to fill out the I-864 affidavit of support form and include financial records. It should not disqualify the case as long as you find a joint sponsor who does meet the income requirements and also fills out an I-864 and includes his/her own financial records as well. More paperwork and makes the case a little more complicated, but nothing that should be a negative consequence.
