(stupid?) Questions about the I-864

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We are filing directly through our UK embassy, and are awaiting approved I-130s sometime soon.

We are in a hurry to get our visas, and are trying to be prepared with the I-864s, police certificates etc.

I need my dad to be a joint sponsor to meet the income requirements. Can he download the form and start filling it out now, or will the forms we receive from the embassy have some sort of barcode or ID number on them? I don't want to make my dad fill and sign a form and send it, just to get him to have to do it all voer again...

Also about proof of domicile (I've lived in the UK almost all of my life) ...my step mother suggested she write up a lease for her upstairs of her house. We are intending living there when we first move. They are redecorating the whole place for us etc. They weren't going to charge us rent though, but she's willing to write up a lease if it helps prove that I intend to live there. I don't want to seem dishonest though. What do you think- good idea/bad idea?

Thanks guys. Man I'm so glad I found this forum. I've been reading through it all day and it's sooo helpful.

Yes, If you live in same home as your father, then you will do an I-864, and your father will do an I-864A. If not then he should also do an I-864
