While waiting for my husband's I-693 to be finished in a week or so we're working on the other things we need for his AOS. After reading a few topics on here about the I-864 and the I-864A, I'm not sure which we should use.

I am currently a full-time student looking for employment, but as of right now I am unemployed (and have been since focusing on school). So I have no income to show for (other than financial aid and odd jobs I help my grandmother with that she pays me for) and have not filed taxes. My mother is going to be our co-sponsor (she was also the co-sponsor for the K1, the I-134). Our household consists of my father and mother (who file taxes married but separate), my husband and myself, and my nephew (adopted son of my parents). So in total there's 5 living in the household. My mother makes around $50,000 so looking at the poverty guidelines, her income looks to be enough.

Which form would be better for us to do? I know that I'm the main sponsor even though I have no income, so I'm assuming I will still fill out an I-864 on my own regardless? Also, for my mother's would I include myself in the household size? Or just my father, nephew and my husband as the immigrant she is sponsoring?

Unless your mother CLAIMS you on her return, you will not count on her I-864. Mother can act as a Joint sponsor and provide an I-864, her I-864 only counts herself, spouse, intending immigrant, and any dependents that are claimed for tax reasons.

Other option you can try is for mother to provide an I-864A and add her income to yours, same count as above, unless you are claimed as a dependent.

You still provide an I-864 as primary sponsor.

Yep, I-864 for the USC, and I-864A for your mother. She could do an I-864 if she wanted to but the I-864A is better because it ADDS to your income but the I-864 needs to stand alone.

I assume you will continue to live in your mother's home during the AOS process. If so, then you can use an I-864A from your mother. If not, then you'll need 2 separate I-864s. Don't forget if either sponsors move, you have to notify the USCIS...

Thank you all for the clarifications! I guess we'll go with the separate I-864s for each since we do plan to move out of my parent's house within the next few months.
