Need help with I-864A

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My mom is the primary sponsor for my brother.

Her income does not meeting 125% poverty guideline so i want to be a joint sponsor

The confusion is that my mom did not show me as a dependent on her most recent tax return. With that fact, can i still co-sponsor my brother as a relative and fill out the I864A form? Or would i have to submit a separate I-864? Me and my mom live in the same house.

Please advise

Is your brother the intending immigrant and your mom is petitioning for him?

Yes, you can co-sponsor your brother, and yes, you fill out the i-864A if you live with your mom.

yes and yes.

The only reason i asked is because the guidelines for I-864A states

Who May Be Considered a "Household

Member" for Purposes of This Form?

- A relative who has the same principal residence as the

sponsor and is related to the sponsor as a spouse, adult

child, parent, or sibling;

- A relative or other person whom the sponsor has lawfully

claimed as a dependent on the sponsor's most recent Federal

income tax return even if that person does not live at the

same residence as the sponsor;

- The intending immigrant, in certain circumstances. (See

"How Can the Intending Immigrant Be Considered a

Household Member"?)

that second bullet, is it a requirement or one of 3 ways to be a joint sponsor?

That is one of 3 ways to be considered a household member.

If you read further it will say the difference between being a dependent vs. not.

If the household member is also a dependent on the tax return, no proof of same residence is needed

If not a dependent and not a spouse of the sponsor, which is your case, you have to prove that you are related to your mom and that you live with her :)
