I-864 CHecklist

4 posts in this topic Register to Ask a Question

I live in Canada. My husband, the petitioner, lives in the US and has filed his I-864 some time ago. We thought everything was okay with that. Maybe it is but now we're not sure. I, the beneficiary, filed my DS-230 a month or so ago with the NVC and was anxiously awaiting a date for my interview in Montreal. Well, yesterday I received a letter from the NVC saying that they had reviewed it and there was missing information. What they want is a response to the checklist for the I-864. I have no idea what this is, where you find it, what it looks like, etc. etc. Do I have to file my own I-864? Does this checklist apply to my husband in the US who already has sent his I-864? Was I supposed to get some kind of checklist form with my DS-230 packet that pertained to the I-864 by husband submitted? I've emailed the NVC already with this question but I know I won't receive a reply from them until sometime next week. Can someone help me?

You [b]read[/b] the instructions that come along with the downloaded form I-864.
You also [b]read[/b] the instructions that came with the specific packet from NVC relating to your AoS which is the responsibility of the PETITIONER to submit.
[u]Additional information[/u] (which can prove to be very valuable) can also be obtained by reading James' shortcuts pinned at the top of this forum.

You do not have to file an I-864; it's an affadavit of support and the petitioner/sponsor fills it out, not the beneficiary (you).

It sounds as if his I-864 is missing supporting documents, or maybe it wasn't signed. There is nothing for you to do here; it is up to your husband to correct the problem. Did they say specifically what items were missing?

This is a link to the I-864 form itself; it includes the several pages of instructions:
