I-864 vs I-864EZ

I am in the process of filing the I-485 to adjust the status of my fiancee who is here on a K-1 Visa. We were married within the 90 day period and as part of the I-485 it requires that an I-864 be filed as well. Since I have enough income and will be the sole supporter can I just file the I-864EZ? I can not find anything in the I-864 instructions that will allow me to do this and of course I don't want to take any shortcuts if I will just end up filling out the longer form after all is said and done.

If you can answer yes to the three questions at the beginning of the I-864EZ, sure, use it. Be very attentive when you read the questions and make certain you understand them before answering. Generally, if there is only one person adjusting status and your income is from "employment" and sufficient, you will qualify for the EZ.

Thanks for the reply. I did read the 3 requirements but two of them refer to the filing of a form I-130 (you are the person who is filing or will file form I-130). The problem is I'm not filing Form I-130 so I'm looking at it like then I don't technically qualify to use the form. I am only using my employment income to qualify and am just sponsoring my wife who I just married and is here on a K-1 Visa. It's the reference to the I-130 form that is confusing me here - what am I missing?

You missed reading the further instructions on page three.
