Hey Guys so my wife (US Citizen) and myself (Australian Citizen) got married Friday. Wife has been living in Australia for 3 years now and we are about to apply for our CR1 Visa soon to move to Seattle. We are both anxious as we have a dog to fly over but we are also both excited to start our next chapter. This forum has been extremely helpful, so hopefully things go smoothly.

arrowK-1 Visa AOS Affidavit of Support Joint Sponsor HELP Needed (i-864)!

Hi Guys,


I arrived in USA a month ago and my wife(petitioner) and I just got married last week Friday! We have begun the Adjustment of Status process. We have completed the rest of the required forms (EAD, G25A etc) except the Affidavit of Support (i-864). My wife is a student undertaking her doctorate degree so she has no time to work. As a result of this, we are both unemployed. Her aunt (who joint sponsored her for the i-130 Affidavit of Support for me to come to USA) earns high income and is willing to joint sponsor her again for the i-864 Affidavit of Support. Below are the questions I have. If there is anyone who knows the answers to these questions or can offer some help, that would be super kind of you and greatly appreciated! This is the link to the form (https://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-864.pdf) to make it easier to answer! :)


  1. My wife as the petitioner is my primary sponsor and has to do the i-864. Does her aunt have to do the i-864 or i-864a? I'm assuming just the i-864 because she doesn't require anyone else in her immediate family to assist her as a joint sponsor.
  2. In Part 5 (Sponsor's Household Size) how many people does her aunt need to put? Her aunt has no dependent children and she is not married. She lives in her own home by herself. Does she need to include my wife? How would she do that?
  3. In Part 5 (Sponsor's Household Size) when my wife added the answer to 1, 2 and 3, according to number 8 that would equal 3 people for our Household Size but there are only two of us (my wife and I). Can someone clarify this please?
  4. Can we use the same supporting documents (W2, 1840s, Employment Letter, Bank Letter) we used for i-130 Affidavit of Support for i-1864 Affidavit of Support?


Thank you in Advance! :)

I have an interview at the US Consulate in Sydney and I'm trying to find out if I can bring my phone. I know that no devices whatsoever are allowed in the actual visa area, but are there lockers or storage for small items like this? I've found conflicting information so far. Just wanting to know if I can bring my phone with me thats all

I have my interview coming up in a few days. I'm wondering if its a good idea to bring along my flight information along with proof of sufficient funds? I'm applying for a J1 4 month summer work travel visa. I booked my flights ahead of time (yes I know its not optimal in some people's opinion. I fully accepted the risk when I booked them and believe it is worth it given my financial situation; if I am denied a visa then I'll be able to save the money back as I have a steady job, but flights are getting more and more expensive).


Would showing them flight information make me look presumptive? Or would it have the opposite effect; showing that I have already sorted my flights out and therefore whatever money I have will stretch further.


Thanks to everyone and anyone who gives me input
