Affidavit of Support: I-864 Help

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife is a US citizen petitioning for her parents. She doesn't have any income but we have been filing taxes jointly with only my income. I understand that she needs to file form I-864 and I will be filing form I-864A.

On my wife's form I-864:

  • Part 5. Sponsor's Household Size
    • Question 5) If you have any other dependents, enter the number here: I have been claiming 1 other dependent (my grandmother) as a dependent in my tax returns. Does my wife need to enter 1 or 0 as the answer to this question?
    • Question 7) Does my wife need to enter 1 since I will be filing form I-864A?
  • Part 6. Sponsor's Employment and Income
    • Questions 19.a., 19.b., 19.c.) Since my wife did not have any income over the 3 most recent tax years, does she enter $0 as the total income or enter the total combined income for both of us?

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
