Financial hardship is one of the key ways to demonstrate hardship to your U.S. citizen or permanent resident spouse or parent. What you need to understand is that it is really important to note that in and of itself financial hardship generally is not going to be enough, so let’s look at how would you do that.
First of all, if you are essential to providing income to your household that would be considered as an important factor. A common myth is that you have to be the breadwinner: you do not need to be the actual breadwinner, you just have to demonstrate that you are essential to the household income.
Evidence for you need to produce to prove you are financially essential
What kind of evidence do you need to produce to prove your importance to the household income? In order to do that your immigration attorney will need bank statements. One way of proving your contribution to sustaining the household economy is the with the existence of bills such as:
- car payments;
- a mortgage;
- health records and bills.
For an I-601 or I-601A in 2020, these expenses help demonstrate how important your financial contribution is to the entire family.
Another way to verify your condition – whether or not you’d be affected. Try answering these questions:
- What would happen if you had to go back to your home country and your household was without you?
- Would you be able to support your household if you were in another country?
In most cases probably not. You know. So we pull the poverty levels of that country. Our immigration attorneys examine comparable jobs and look at whether or not you’d be able to get that job.
If your family went with you to your home country, would you be able to support your family?
That’s another question that should be answered as well. So these are some ways to demonstrate financial hardship for I-601 and I-601A 2020 Waivers.
