Ok so question 21 states:

21. Your Household Size - DO NOT COUNT ANYONE TWICE


  • Persons you are sponsoring in this affidavit:
  • a. Enter the number you entered on line 10.
    Persons NOT sponsored in this affidavit:
  • b. Yourself.
  • c. If you are currently married, enter "1" for your spouse.

Referring to a. Line 10 Reads

10. Enter the total number of immigrants you are sponsoring on this form from Part 3, Items 8 and 9.

of which I filled out 1 (my wife)

Then b. = 1, and c = 1 for my spouse.

However, my issue is: down at the bottom of question 21 h states:

10. Enter the total number of immigrants you are sponsoring on this form from Part 3, Items 8 and 9.

Which would make my Household Size = 3!!

--- Thing is: I'm trying to immigrate my spouse, there are only two of us... not 3!?

Looking at the above: Does that mean I'd have to make over $23,163 a year?

Thanks for any insight on this!

Do NOT count anybody who is not currently a resident in the U.S. So when it asks you if you are married in 21c, even though you are, your spouse is not currently a resident so you would not enter a 1.

A=non resident spouse. B=yourself. C=does not apply to your spouse until she becomes a resident.

Your total is now 2.

Please see the message on top of question 21 C - "Persons NOT sponsored in this affidavit". according to that you need to fill in the number persons you are currently supporting from 21 c through 21 g. Since your wife is the person sponsored in this affidavit, she should not be included in 21 c. Yes, the forms are sometimes confusing and we need to read the highlighted messages and also apply common sense - it definitely confused me till I read it a couple of times. Of course i get doubts where others don't get - it happens.
