NBC Corrects Requests for Evidence Forms Related to Affidavits of Support
The National Benefit Center (NBC) has issued numerous Requests for Evidence (RFEs) on Affidavits of Support (I-864) in cases
where the sponsored immigrant’s income was utilized to officially meet the family’s income requirement. In these RFEs, the
NBC mistakenly stated that income earned while the sponsored immigrant was not employment-authorized will not be eligible to
be included on the I-864, even if that income was reported on a tax return.
Please note that these RFEs were not correct and the NBC is requesting individuals inform them of how these RFEs were
received. However, the NBC does suggest that you answer the RFE (even though it is incorrect) to ensure your case is not
automatically denied for abandonment.
