Legal Question

Asked on: 12/12/09, 12:43 pm

As US citizen I require to submit "Affidavit of support" for family member whom I want to bring to US from other country and I have to meet 125% of poverty level. My question is following. For example, I want to show my income for last three years and my annual income in 2007 was 17 000 and 125% of poverty level for 2007 was 16500. I'm filling affidavit of support in 2009 and poverty level has been raised and now 125% of poverty level is 17500 (just for example). Does this mean I have not met 125% of income for 2007 because poverty level has been raised? Or they count income eligibility based on guidance for 2007?

Thank you!
