I-864 How to fill out the form when I live abroad?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This is my situation:

I live with my husband in Belgium where we both have jobs. My dad is a co-sponsor as he lives in the US and that is also my domicile. As I understand it both me and my dad fill out the I-864, correct?

The form asks me about my income, since this is not in America, I'm not sure if this is necessary to include since when we move I'll have to quit this job. So should I say that I do not have an income instead?

Thank you.

Hey Zabka,

The I-864 will tell them enough when sent with the tax returns. Don't assume too much, if they ask about your job, just give them the current situation, not what will be in the future.

List your job. Include your US tax returns. The US Embassy is less concern with your income since your dad will be a Joint Sponsor. However, the US Embassy will check that you reported your non-US income on your US tax returns.
