When it states that your income has to exceed 125% of the poverty guidelines does that mean you can count the income from UK job (that is being given up when moving to the US) or can you only use income if you have a job you are going to after the move to the US?
You may include the net value of your home as an asset. The net value of the home is the appraised value of the home,minus the sum of any and all loans secured by a mortgage,trust deed, or other lien on the home.
The move to the US for most people is predicated on sale of the house. I notice this seems to suggest that you can include the net house value even if you haven't sold it. Can you apply before you've sold your house with the intention of selling it after DCF is completed?
You may not include the net value an automobile unless you show that you have more than one automobile, and at least one automobile is not included as an asset.
Looks like you can only sell a second, third, etc car, the primary car can't be included in assets!
However,if you are a U.S. citizen and you are sponsoring your spouseor minor child, the total value of your assets must only beequal to at least three times the difference.
According to the example, they're sponsoring a parent so the 5x minimum is required. However, a family unit of spouse and minors I took to mean 3x. If you had no income then your income is $0 so you have to have 3 x 125% poverty guidelines in total assets - $0. This is a hefty amount no matter what size your family so it'd be interesting to know whether the unsold house appraised value definitely counts as it seems to indicate. Otherwise, for most people a job offer or even having started a job in the US seems like an absolute necessity.
