Default Help With MIN income requirement for I-864

Hi guys ,

my wife(USC) is filing I-864

We are little confused with the calculation of the income requirement

Household size : 2 (herself & me)
State : NH

Year Wages 1099 Misc
---- ----- ---------
1999 $10400 $5200.65
2000 $11400 $4400.31
2001 $12100 $6600.50


- The wages to be considered is the amount in the box 1 i.e."wages,tips & other comp." of the W2 , right ?

- As per my understanding her income is above the min. requirement.

Help is deeply appriciated ...!!!

Thanx

Your definition of the W2 amount is correct. "1099 Miscellaneous" is for interest
from savings banks, credit unions, certificates of deposit, and other similar
investments.

My understanding of the I-864 is that it is just your current salary that is of interest, not previous year's salaries. I haven't seen anything in the instructions that says the INS will average your last 3 tax returns. I believe they just want that as an indicator of earning potential.
