Hi guys,

I have couples question, hope you guys can answer for me

I paid the fee AOS, and IV fee,

- *Do i have to wait for send in the Affidavit of support paper work? I-864 forms

I read about all the I864 and I86A - but they are little confusing for me. English is not my first language.

- This years my income doesn't meet the requirement to support my wife. So i have to ask my parents to help as a join sponscer.

- I fill out I-864 for myself, my dad fill his I-864....his total income includes my mom ....SO she has to complete a I-864A with my dad.

That is what i understand from the immigrantvisas.state.gov . They have join taxes paper work, so

*Do they have to include the marriage cert. with the form I864A? and other question

*Do I have to fill out a I86A with my dad?

Thank you very much

If you have the paid receipt, you can send your I864 in.

Do you live with your father? If yes, he will file a I864A. If you live separately, he will file the I864 and if your mother's income is included she will sign a I864A. And I would think it would make sense to submit a copy of their marriage certificate as well. Some one please correct me if I am wrong.

Whether he files the I864 or I864 A will depend on whether you live together and/or he claims you as a dependent on his taxes/file jointly.

Actually disregard what I say and wait for someone to clarify this.

You are correct.... and your sponsor needs to submit the same documents for residency status or citizenship here in the US, the tax, employment letter and paycheck info etc...

Christeen, my husband is filling in his I-864, he is currently living with his mother and father. He is not making the required income so my cousin will act as joint sponsor.

My question is: in calculating household size what figure should my husband use? 2 for the two of us? 3 just including his parents since he can't financially sponsor me? Or 4 including me and his parents? Could you please clarify this for me?

Someone can correct me if I am wrong... But I think it goes like this...

If the parents file their own taxes, then you do not have to put them on the 864 for your husband.... The cousin since I assume does not live with your husband, files an 864 and is in support of his family plus your husband. He will file his own 864 counting himself and you... If the parents are dependants (meaning he takes exemptions for them on his taxes) then he has to count them as part of the family size...

So your husbands is Him and you (even though he does not qualify he still has to file)

the cousins is his family plus you (and if he is married, his wife has to file the 864A to acknowledge that he is sponsoring someone, even if she does not qualify).

With those everyone submits as least last years tax information, employment letters, pay stubs, proof of citizenship/residency and in the wife of the cousin, marriage certificate.

Okay. Thanks, I get it now.

And if the cousin's income is enough and he is NOT using his wife's income -- does she then still have to file the I864A?

Yes, since by default, the wife is part of the household of your cousin... She needs to acknowledge that her husband and herself (since they have a joint tax return) is sponsoring someone...
