Hi again guys, so i am supposed to respond to the NVC and part of the requirements is that i fill out a form I-864 (affidavit of support). My concern is that i resigned my job in the US in July because i got a better job in a another country. I have been working there for a month now. I filed my 2012 tax returns and plan to file for this year since i worked for 7 months. Will i be eligible to fill the affidavit of support for my spouse? does anyone foresee any problems? Thanks for your input, as always.

Thanks for your input, as always.[/quote How do you define "temporarily" resident outside the United States? The sponsor must satisfy the consular officer that he/she has not given up his/her permanent residence in the United States to establish a residence abroad; i.e. he or she has maintained his/her principal residence in the United States with the intent to maintain that residence for the foreseeable future. Lawful Permanent Residents must further demonstrate that they have maintained their legal permanent residence status. The decision will be on a case by case basis. The following is a list of the types of employment, which is considered meeting the definition of "domiciled" in the United States, if the sponsor has been temporarily working outside the United States. The list also covers a sponsor who is the spouse or son/daughter of a person employed abroad in one of the listed professions. The list includes, but is not limited to employment by: the U.S. government, including the U.S. Armed Forces; an American Institution of research recognized as such by the Attorney General; an American firm or corporation engaged in whole or in part in the development of foreign trade and commerce with the United States or a subsidiary thereof; by a public international organization in which the U.S. participates by treaty or status; and a person who is performing the ministerial or priestly functions of a religious denomination having a bona fide organization with the United States who is temporarily stationed abroad pursuant to that calling of is engaged solely as a missionary by a religious denomination or by an interdenominational mission organization having a bona fide organization within the United States and is stationed to that calling. [i][b][size=7][size=6][size=6]There may be other instances where the sponsor is temporarily residing outside the United States, for example, he or she may be studying or teaching. As stated, the defining factor is whether or not the individual is able to show that his or her residence outside the United States is clearly of a temporary nature and that he or she did not give up his/her residence in the United States to establish a residence abroad.[/size][/size][/b][/i][/size] If you have any questions concerning this issue, please contact the Immigrant Visa Unit. (Source:http://sweden.usembassy.gov/affidavit.html) Does any body know of any similar situation? I work as a Tutor in a University. would that qualify me for the 'teaching category'?

Since you resided in US atleast 7 months, you should be fine. Make sure your income is atleast same or more than the minimum limit set. If it is lower than that, you can go for joint sponsorship. Make sure you can prove that your job located outside US is temporary and that you are still planning to reside within US.
