I-864 Waiver possible?

Hi, I searched for related topics, but couldn't find anything on this.

My husband will become a USC on Jan 14, and we are thinking of petitioning for his mom. I am looking at the documents we'd need to file, and I-864 is one of them. Reading through NVC instructions, I see the following in I-864W form:

"If you are claiming credit for quarters worked by a spouse or

parent, you may not count any quarter in which the spouse or

parent was receiving means-tested public benefits. Include all

SSA forms necessary to establish that you have or can be

credited with 40 quarters of coverage."

Now, the way I read it is that if I, a wife of a future USC, have 40 credits, he may be able to claim them, thus removing the need to do I-864 and would just need to sign an I-864W.

Any insight on this? Am I hoping for impossible?

Thanks!!! :thumbs:

Form I-864W is Intending Immigrant's Affidavit of Support Exemption, meaning the immigrant (your mother in law) should prove that she has worked in the USA long enough to be entitled to benefits... if that's not a case, she needs "a sponsor"
