I-864 Question

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts


I have filed a I-130 for my wife and a second one for my step-son. Both cases are now at NVC and I am filling out the I-864. My question's are:

1) do I file a I-864 for each as I have filed a I-130 for each, when I paid the AOS fee for my wife it took care of the fee for my step-son also, both show paid, and though I was able to print the cover sheet for my wife there was never one available for step-son, I called NVC and they just kept saying to wait and it will show up, they also told me I have to file two seperate I-864's and if cover letter never became available to just write a cover letter with his case number on it and put case number on all of the documents.

2) In part 3 question 9 it states " I am sponsoring the following family members...... Do not include any relatives listed on a seperate visa petition". So should I just list wife on her I-864 and not list step-son and answer 1 to question 10 and do the same on step-sons I-864.

part of what makes this confusing is that when I get to part 5 question 21, on my wifes it would be:




d-1 --- I have a son that I have to list




with h = 3

while on my step-sons it would look like this








with h = 4

this doesnt make sense, I would think that both I-864's need to have same number for household size. any help would be greatly appreaciated.
