We found out today that more information was requested back at the end of October on the I-485 form for Vilay. We never got the letter. It was most likely mailed to my mother’s home and I will never know if she didn’t give it to me or if it was lost in the mail. I really don’t care at this point.
We can’t know what is being requested by calling. No information can be given over the phone. But, after talking to a representative I am pretty sure it has to do with the fact that I don’t make enough to cover the 125 percent of poverty guidelines for the U.S. I need to make at least 30K. Ha! Not in Dayton, Ohio. Most of the banks have a hiring freeze and the only way I could make that kind of money is at a management level. So, there we are back in the mess but it is getting too DEEP.
No one wants to be my husband’s sponsor due to the financial responsibily. What if he had to go into the hospital? That would mean that whoever was the sponsor would be responsible to pay the hospital bill. An example would be of the bill I received from Children’s for Sweet Bear when she had to spend three nights in the hospital at two days old. It was over 7K.
The person thought that this may be what is causing my husband’s request for employment authorization to be slowed down. It has been almost three months since we filed. I don’t know for sure if that is why or not. We will need to go to the local office to talk with someone to find out. If it is I don’t know what to do. Without Vilay earning a salary we just cannot make it. We are no where near the federal poverty guidelines for a family of five with only my salary. Plus, we are paying what we can on our student loans. Honestly, that is half of what I make and it is not the full amount that we are originally required to pay. I know it will all work out.
I know it will. I am just so tired of waiting for it to work out. I am starting to get angry at the whole system. I am tired of living with other people and I am tired of always worrying about how we are going to take care of our family. I am tired of all the obstacles that don’t make sense.
I told the person that I am American and my children are Ameircan. I told her that it is a shame that my husband and the father of my American children will have to return back to France because of some stupid rule. If he can work we are fine. Why is he not able to work after nearly three months and three kids to feed. I am pissed to say the least.
