Hi all! :blush:

My sister doesn't want to be my fiance's co-sponsor for the i-134 Affidavit because she paranoid, so my mom will have to be it. But the thing is she only makes 21,000 a year and there we be a house hold size of 4 (her, my dad, myself (because my dad and I am unemployed), and my English fiance, which make the poverty guideline 27,562.

My mom own her own home with no mortgage payments, but it is the house in which they live and my fiance and I will reside. In the affidavit instructions it states that assets can only be used if it can be converted into cash with in a year and well not put the sponsor in jeopardy.

Do you think they would accept my mom's house as a sufficient asset to supplement her lack of income if it the house they live in? Would they be happy with it or are we really cutting it to close?

Is household size the same as the number of dependents?

Also on the affidavit question 8, how should we mark myself and my dad: as wholly dependent or partially? Does it matter?

Thanks for you help!!!

Your father is an adult US citizen he is not a dependant, will not show up as a dependant on her tax return and is not counted for the I-134. (it is a joint return, he is not a dependant, look at the section listing "dependants", his name is not there) Furthermore there is no need for her to guarantee your father will not collect welfare, as a US citizen he can do so.

Yes, her home can be used as an asset. Attach a copy of her deed or title or whatever shows she owns the house free and clear, plus a verified statement of value, this can be a county tax assessors valuation or a professional appraiser.

Why are you a dependant? Do you have a job? If yes, you are also a US citizen over age 18. Children CAN be considered "dependants", souses are not (unless they are disabled and claimed as such on income tax, OR they are an immigrant covered by an I-864 your mother signed for him). Even if you were claimed on her taxes last year, the situation may have changed. Will you be claimed as a dependant this year? If not, then attach a letter explaining the change and why you are not cliamed on the I-134. There is no difference between partially or wholly dependant, not sure why that is even used anymore, for that matter I am not sure why the I-134 is even used anymore.

Unless there is something you are not telling us, her family size is TWO, herself and your fiance.
