Adult children and fired co-sponsor

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok here is the situation. Case was complete on April 30,2015. A week before the cc my co sponsor and her husband both where fired. We are still waiting for interview to be scheduled at New Delhi embassy ( which given me time to look for new co sponsor with no luck). But since all this has happened 2 of my adult children have moved back in with me and are now working, and I have 1 adult child that's in the army. Not sure if I should fill out a new I864 with household of 7 (but I don't really support my 3 older children. They are just living with me for the time being) and add their income to mine since I fall short $2000 to sponsor alone. I am feeling lost and confused on what I should do.

So you only need to claim that 2 plus who you're sponsoring. Not 7

Ok, so since I can't find a new co sponsor and my child wants to add his income to mine so I can make the poverty requirements. Will he just fill out the a form and I can bring it to the interview?

Your kid can either add his income to yours with an I-864a, but if he can qualify on their own (a military member only has to make 100% not 125% for example) then he would just do an I-864 and yes you bring it to interview.

I suggest the I864 otherwise you have to increase your household size and prove family relationship and co-habitation.

The 100% for the military member is for being a primary(petitioner) sponsor. As a joint sponsor they would likely have to meet the 125% mark.

You're right. I reread the instructions and it is 125% as a joint sponsor or sponsoring anyone beyond a spouse or child.

Still her adult child would only count 2 on the household size if they are a single adult without children or dependents.
