I-864 Affidavit of Support, Part 6 (Household Income) -- What can be left blank?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My aunt is going to be the joint sponsor for my wife, the intending immigrant. Her individual income is well above the necessary minimum for her household size, so I am under the impression she does not need to include her husband (she recently re-married) in her household income.

The instructions for the newest version of the form, however, are a little unclear; it says to enter the number from question 5 in question 6.c. (all part 6) and if that number is greater than the poverty limit, so one needs to jointly file with her.

I don't understand why her income needs to be put in question 6, though. She's not person one, and if she included someone there, like her husband, the number would obviously be different.

I'm also curious if, as a single-income joint filer, she needs to enter anything into #10 -- "My current Annual Household Income." This also seems superfluous, as they only need to check line 5 to see that she qualifies.

This form is more confusing than it needs to be (like all immigration forms). Help!

Part 6 #5 is her individual current annual income. Part 6 #6a put NONE, skip to part 6 #10 and list her income again. The 'Persons' it asks about are persons in their household, not themselves. If they are not using income from anyone in their household, then you put none. It was the same on the old form, just laid out differently.
