I submitted an AOS, received RFE for Wife’s Income Tax. My wife does not meet the income requirement so we filed based on my income $55,000/year (household of 2). I have EAD since 2008, pending I-485 employment base before I got married this year). Sent all my tax return, W2s and EAD, income will continue from the same source .The RFE asks for wife’s tax return and also states the Petitioner/Sponsor’s income does not exceed 125% of poverty. It also says we can use joint sponsor if we decide to. The lawyer said he did not submit my wife tax return originally because he thought it was not relevant since we are using only my income. He said all they are asking for is my wife’s return and that we do not need a joint sponsor, is that correct? Why they said we did not meet the 125% requirement?
