My confusing AOS checklist

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My case was confirmed completed over the phone yesterday (08/20/2015), but the representative told me that I had a checklist, not to send to NVC but for my husband to bring to his interview.

The thing is, what they're asking for doesn't make sense (to me at least), so I don't know how to fix it:

I submitted my I-864 for my husband, but because I work abroad I don't meet poverty guidelines, so my father agreed to be his joint sponsor. Therefore, I submitted my I-864, my father's I-864, and my mother's I-864A as my father's household member.

My checklist is for part 5, the household size of my father:

It says: "Item 7. You must account for all siblings, paretns or adult children with the same principle residence who are combining their income with yours by submitting Form I-864A. This number must also match the total number of household members listed in Part 6, Items 6.a. through 9.c."

My father's household was filled out as follows:

N°1: 1 (my husband, the immigrant)

N°2: 1 (yourself...my father)

N°3: 1 (my mother, my father's spouse)

N°4-7: all 0, as I didn't count anyone twice

So, 3 people total.

So who are they asking for for N°7?? Me, the petitioner, because on my form I-864 I put my father's address as my place of residence in Part 3, N°3.a-3.h??? Or my mom, for filling out an I-864?? But I don't get it because it asks for "siblings, parents or adult children", not spouse, and if I added her to number 7 that means I would have added her twice (as she was already counted in number 3) and it specifically says not to count anyone twice.

Help me please! I don't want my husband to have issues at his interview over a stupid missing number!


also, when I spoke to the representative I explained to her my father's household size and she said, "I think you were right the first time", so I asked her if I should have my father sign a new form or just bring the original and she said, it's up to you...gahhh

I called NVC and spoke with a Case Supervisor, and it took her a while to understand why NVC would think there's an error. After she checked with a higher-up, she confirmed that because my mom filled out an I-864A to attach to my father's I-864, Item 7 was supposed to be checked off instead of Item 3, even though it's the same total household number and it states "siblings, parents or adult children" in Item 7, but nothing about spouses.

There's gotta be a monkey making this stuff up from behind the curtain...over the phone I'm like...uhhh...okay, I'll move the number 1 from Item 3 to Item 7...how bizarre that they focus on something as unimportant as that.
