NVC Generated I-864 instructions Question

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The instructions we get from them look like this:

IV. Documentsfor the principal immigrant and accompanyingdependents:

. Principal Applicant: Original signedand notanzedI-864 and I-864A (if needed)and one

completeset of supportingdocuments(tax records,employmentletters,etc.) is neededfor

eachprincipalimmigrant. All accompanyingdependentsmust be listed in Part 3 of

the I-864 and Part 2 of the I-864A.

. Accompanyingdependents: Each dependent must have either a signedand notarized

original or a photocopyof the principal applicant'ssignedand notanzedI-864 and I-864A

(if needed). Copiesmay only be used for dependents whose namesappearon the

principal'soriginal forms. Copiesof supportingdocumentsare not required for

dependents applying for visasor adjustmentof statustogetherwith the principal

immigrant.

I can't remember where I downloaded it on here (checked downloads and example forms... no dice), hopefully someone else will know that's done this before. What is this part IV talking about? How is this different from the Petitioner's Documents listed in Part I? I have to submit two copies of the I-864? That doesn't seem likely, but I can't figure out what this part has to do with anything - and I *don't* want it to come back and bite me in the butt later.

Thanks and ttyl,

mich

22 May 2006 - Case # Assigned @ NVC

14 Jul 2006 - DS-230 Package Received by USC

We stopped pursuit of CR-1 to pursue K3/AOS. For us, both required the same document, we could only have one valid copy, and the K3 was moving faster.

One I-864 which must be signed in front of a notary public is needed for one beneficiary. For example, if I US Citizen petitioner is aplying for parents, the petitioner has to take care of two I-864. I think, I-86A is nedded, only if a household member's income is included with the US Citizen petitioner's income.


I-130 Timeline with USCIS:

It took 92 days for I-130 to get approved from the filing date

NVC Process of I-130:

It took 78 days to complete the NVC process

Interview Process at The U.S. Embassy

Interview took 223 days from the I-130 filing date. Immigrant Visa was issued right after the interview

ok... so this isn't in addition to the completed form that is specified in Part I... it's just clarifying it? I was thinking it was telling me I needed a second one for some strange reason that I really didn't understand. A bit of a weird way to just restate that you have to submit one... oh well. How does that song go? "If I were king of the forest... " :whistle: thanks! ttyl,

Mich,

There could be the following three scenarios regarding I-864:

1. You need to fill out only one I-864 for your spouse. Obviously, if your income is sufficient, then you won't need a co-sponsor. So total only one I-864 (by the US citizen petitioner) would be needed.

2. But, if you need a co-sponsor, then the co-sponsor needs to fill out a separate I-864. In that case, total two I-864 would be needed. One by the US Citizen petitioner and the other one by the co-sponsor.

3. If your co-sponsor is your household member, then the household member should fill out either a separate I-864 or I-864A. So A) total two I-864 would be needed; one by you and the other one by the household member co-sponsor. OR B) One I-864 by you and one I-864A by your household member co-sponsor.

I would like to hear from others too and they can correct me, if something that I mentioned above is not correct.

I don't need a cosponsor, so your bullet 1 would be the applicable one. :) ok, i think we're both working along the same lines here. I think I didn't phrase my last post very well. I was more complaining about how they poorly phrased their insturctions (the ones from the NVC, not the ones with the form). So overall, I just need the one that I have, and everyone is happy :D thanks! ttyl,
