I-864/I-864EZ for parents

8 posts in this topic

I'm applying IR-5 visa for my parents. I-864 Affidavit of Support is one of the required document to complete.

I have a couple of questions in filling out the form.

1) I have/had no income (but filed joint tax return w/ my husband who will complete I-864A).

Can I use I-864EZ instead of I-864?

2) Item 19 of I-864EZ, "My total income (adjusted gross income on IRS Form 1040EZ) as reported on my Federal tax

returns for the most recent three years was:",

Should I put '0' or put the amount shown on the joint tax returns (which is solely my husband's income)?

I'd appreciate it if anyone can help.[/size]

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

I don't think you can use I-864EZ. You should use I-864 since your husband will file out I-864A.

Thank you so much. One additional question:

What should I put for the income of last 3 years? Is that the amount on W2 box 1(Salary) or box 2(social security wage) or something on 1040 ...? (Worked for only 1 employer).

Use box 22 of the 1040. The amount on the I-864 must match this amount.

Darnell: I-864 instructions say "My total income (adjusted gross income on IRS Form 1040EZ) as reported on myFederal tax returns..."

Trailmix: As so said on I-864, yes, I believe box 22 of the 1040 (Total Income) is the amount I need to put on I-864.

Thank you both so much. You did clear up my confusion.

Another question just came up. I did have a very small income in 2009 and filed a joint return w/ my husband.

Let's say I made $1oK and my husband made $40K. So the amount in box 22 of the 1040 is $50K, the total income of my husband and myself.

Is that correct that I put $10K on my I-864 and my husband put $40K on I-864A?
