My Ex-Marine USC wife is receiving monetary benefits from Veterans Affairs department under the Post-9/11 GI Bill. She is sponsoring me for my AOS based on our marriage. Can we attach letter from Veterans Affairs department as a proof that she is getting the above mentioned benefits? Would it be acceptable to USCIS as income to support her alien spouse (i.e. me)?
Yes, your wife's monetary benefits from the VA qualify as income on the I-864 affidavit of support. If you still can't meet the income levels, then your wife's assets (real estate, savings account, etc) can be used to try to meet the income levels. If not, then you can obtain a joint sponsor.
You should consult an attorney re: this situation.
