2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: AOS (apr) Country: South Africa

I found this info in this site


Form I-864A may be filed by a sponsor and a non-U.S. citizen immigrant. Form I-864A is an optional form and sets forward a contract in which the immigrant agrees to make assets and/or income available to the sponsor to help support the immigrant for which the affidavit of support has been filed. Form I-864A sets forward obligations of the household member in this contract which will terminate when the obligation under the Affidavit of Support of the sponsor terminates. A separate Form I-864A must be used for each household member whose income and/or assets are being used by a sponsor to qualify. Form I-864A may be submitted simultaneously with Form I-864. Form I-864A (Affidavit of Support Contract Between Sponsor and Household Member) may also be known as USCIS Form I-864A, I 864A, Form I864A or immigration form I-864A.

Does anyone know can I as the sponsor who is about $3000.00 short have my husbanh/non us citizen, whom I am sponsoring, aid in my income or do we have to get a co-sponsor.......I am soooooo very confused!!!!!!!

Ok, first of all, I see that you are filing for a K1 visa, which it is my understanding requires an I-134 for the first leg of the journey. :)

When applying for AOS, I believe that is when you do the I-864. We just completed the DCF process, and we used the beneficiary's assets as a part of our Affidavit - both 1 year of bank statements, as well as Certificates of Deposit that he holds - both from India. It did NOT require a separate form I-864A, it was just a part of my (the petitioner) I-864. If you go this route, make sure that you have 1 year of bank statements and copies of original documents, etc.

One more point, if you are just looking at supplying a stop-gap between your income and the 125% of the poverty level (around $17, 500 this year for a family of 2), the assets that you show to make up for the income must be THREE TIMES the gap between your income and the threshold. This can be confusing, so here is an example:

If your income is $14, 500, and the requirement is $17, 500, your assets to make up the difference would need to be $9,000. (3 times the $3,000 that is missing.)

I hope this helps you, the I-864 is one of the more 'fun' docs in this process! :blink:
