I 864A. What is a family member?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I live at my grandmother's house. We share an address but she is not a"a spouse, adult child, parent, or sibling; " She is co-sponsoring my spouse's visa. Should she send in an I-864A or a normal I-864?

***She did raise me (not adopted just legal guardian) but I have not been a dependent on her taxes since 2005.

Thanks!

You must mean a "household member".

If you're still living with your grandma in the same house, then yes, she is considered a household member and she needs to fill out an I-864A and send it with your I-864.

If she lives in a different house you need to send two separate I-864s, one from you and one from her.

Being or not being a dependent on her tax returns isn't relevant when it comes to determining who is a household member.

She would complete an I-864. Her income cannot be combined with yours to meet the requirement. It must stand on its own.

If you're still living with your grandma in the same house, then yes, she is considered a household member and she needs to fill out an I-864A and send it with your I-864. Grandparents are not one of the qualifying family members, only spouse, adult child, parent, or sibling.

If she lives in a different house you need to send two separate I-864s, one from you and one from her.

Being or not being a dependent on her tax returns isn't relevant when it comes to determining who is a household member. This is one of the tests for qualifying as a household member. In the OP's case it doesn't help as they were not claimed in the most recent tax year..
