technically speaking, K#s fall under the 100% and CR# fall under the 125%.

but since a K# will, after approval, soon need to meet the 125% during AOS, it's best to anticipating being held to that expectation.

so the tax that will be used is 2008, does that mean we follow the 2008 poverty guideline?

Anybody who has an interview from this point forward should assume 2008 is what a VO is most concerned about.

So, even as a CR1, if someone sent an I-864 to NVC, prepare a new one for the interview based on 2008, just in case the VO requests it.

The first link shows the 2009 Guidelines labeled as 2010 Guidelines, which is correct until May 31.

Our country is in dire financial straits because of the deadbeats we have elected to Congress. They will more then likely extend this law so the welfare and the Ponzi Social Security benefits will not be raised.

Well, these numbers will be obsolete soon, but these numbers are direct from USCIS for 2009(note the bold, it's higher than above):

2 $18,212
3 $22,887
4 $27,562
5 $32,327
6 $36,912
7 $41,587
8 $46,262
add $4,675 for each additional person


http://www.uscis.gov...00048f3d6a1RCRD



link to www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-864p.pdf



maybe i'm reading it wrong, but shouldn't it be three times for spouses?

What Cash Value of Assets is Needed?

To be counted, the cash value of assets must equal five times the difference between the sponsor's income and 125 percent of the poverty line for the household size.
For example, a petitioner/sponsor with a household size of four and an income of $18,000 would need assets equal to five times the difference between his/her income and the income required for a family of four at the current federal poverty guidelines level. He/she would also need to show evidence of mortgages, liens, and liabilities against the assets.
The cash value of assets required is different for these sponsors:

Sponsors of immediate relative spouses and children of U.S. citizens must only show assets in the amount of three times the difference between the poverty guideline and actual household income.

Sponsors of foreign orphans who will acquire citizenship after admission to the United States need only prove assets in the amount of the difference between the poverty guideline and actual household income.
