Hey there welcome to Bull City lawyer TV alive on today we're trying something new I'm taking questions from core comm asked by people looking for answers from immigration lawyers and I'm going to try and answer it live as you're watching please tell me what you think of the broadcast I love to hear from you alright so today's question was asked by somebody named Gabe Rob Faber and it is has anyone filing for a green card had to prove how they were being supported during periods of unemployment with or without employment authorization Gabe this is a great question so whether you're getting a green card through an i-130 or an i-140 what happens during that process is that somebody either a family member that's petitioning for you or an employer that owns a part of the business that's sponsoring you in the case of the i-140 has to assign something called the affidavit of support at that point it's not your income that matters it's not your unemployment that matters it's the income of your sponsor they have to unless they're in the military be able to show that they have a hundred and twenty five percent of the poverty line income which you can find on the 864 P for any given year for their household size if their family member and it's a different the similar calculation for the employer so whether you've been unemployed or you've worked without employment authorization doesn't really go into that particular aspect of your green card case that being said if you've worked without employment authorization you should probably almost definitely talk to a legal service provider an immigration attorney so they can help you out with more with that aspect of your case and what sort of implications it can have for your immigration process going forward so again in today's quake Facebook live question question and answer we looked at the core question has anyone filing for a green card had to prove how they were being supported during periods of unemployment with or without authorization and it's not the person applying for the green card it's the sponsor who's sponsoring a person for a green card that this question most strongly pertains to you excuse me it pertains to so if you found this helpful please let us know we're gonna post it here on our page you can always come back and see the recording until then again this is bull city lawyer immigration and small business law and we hope that you enjoyed the broadcast and found it useful.
