i-864 join sponsor's income

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm working on I-864 for my I-485. Because of my husband is a student, his dad is sponsoring me. He is filing his tax jointly with my mother-in-law, so line 37 which is adjusted gross income is total income of dad and mom. Since we are using his income only as a sponsor, we need his total income. Does anyone have an idea what to do? My mother-in-law said line 7 is his income, but is see line 15b and line 17 are filled out which are IRA distributions and rental real estate ...so I wasn't sure if I could use it for total income.

hi

 

he will have to put his individual income and W2s to show of the total income on the taxes is his individual income

 

if you put only the total income, he will need his wife to file the i864A as his household member, if not, your husband will get an RFE

But he always files it with my mother-in-law. How can we get only his 1040????

Also we were going to type the amount of his income not including mom's income for the boxes on i-864 form even though we have joint filing.

As stated, he doesn't need "just his" 1040 (the only 1040 is the joint one). He needs the 1040 from the joint filing + his individual W2s to show his part of that joint income. Typically, the spouse will need to provide an I-864A as well...it's not strictly required, but they want to be sure their spouse knows about the commitment and they have issued RFEs for this.
