The Form I-864 we received was missing the following page(s). Please ensure you include all nine pages when you
resubmit the form.
You must submit the following financial evidence:
[x] Proof of U.S. citizenship, nationality, or Lawful Permanent Resident status (examples: a copy of your birth

parents, or a copy of the biographic data page of your U.S. passport).
NVC Special Instructions
I sent in a copy of his birth certificate.. so I don't understand why they're asking for it again. Was it supposed to be long form? I had made a copy of it before I sent it in, but do I have to redo the entire i-864 package and resend it in? INCLUDING both sponsors and not just the co sponsor ? OR just the form? I also included previous 6 mo of bank statements, letter from VA and SSI since it was related to his income... I really don't want to do all the extra hassle if it isnt necessary.. (getting new bank statements, putting together package and making a copy of that etc) Any help is appreciated. Should I just call NVC and ask?? Does this also mean that the only problem they had was with the birth certificate? Maybe they wanted the original or something...
Basically, can I just fill out the form (for sponsor and co-sponsor ; co sponsor is the one that they ask for birth cert) and include the apparently missing birth certificate and just send it in? Or do the whole song and dance?
EDIT: I checked the copy I sent in and it is long form.. more confused now
|Dependents on I-864 form
Read 17 Times
I have been searching for similar situation as my husband and I have but haven't found anything yet.
We are in a process of filling for AOS from F-1 visa. One of the questions in I-864 confused me.
My husband has 2 minor kids from his previous relationship. Kid's mother and he were never married. He pays child support for him and he is not a custodial parent.
the question is should I count those 2 kids in out family size if they never live with us and he never in his life claimed them on tax return.
From what I've read on this forum is than a lot of people have said that if a family member doesn't live with you and you never claimed him/her on your tax return, you should not mention him/her in the I-864 form.
Is this correct?
Have anyone had a such experience?
I would appreciate any help from you guys.
