:star: Hello,

I am pretty sure I have read on USCIS official website that signatures in I-864 have to be notarized. Now, for some reason, I cannot find the same information there. The form itself does noe say anything....as fas as I see.. :blink:

And several days ago, on one of the forums I go to, I saw a post that stated that notarized signatures or signing the from before the immigration officer is not required anymore.

Which one is right?

Thanks so much! :blush:

No need to Notarize the new I-864. The old ones did require it though.

Sorry to kick up the same topic, but I don't want to do anything that would slow our process down. I agree that there is nothing on the actual I-864 form about notarizing the signature, BUT, on the Chennai Consulate website, as well as in the Packet 3 information, it states that they must be notarized, AND that the last 3 tax returns and W-2s are required.... AARGH!! The year on the bottom of the form is 2006, so I am assuming that was the rule at that time.

Sooo, opinions please, get the form notarized and have the past 3 years tax returns or pull out the instruction form for the current packet and debate (politely of course) the point? Has anyone experienced this problem and dealt with it that way successfully? Particulalry in Chennai?

Thanks!

You are applying for IR-1/CR-1 via DCF. If it ask for notarization, then you should. This thread refers to when the form is used for adjustment of status. In which case notarization is unnessary.
