No, they don't check your credit.

OH yes they do! However, the only credit issue that will impact your qualification to sponsor the immigrant would be an IRS lien. If you have one of those, different story. If you don't, no worries.

Checking for an IRS lien is different from checking consumer credit scores.

Whether they do a separate check or not, I couldn't say but an IRS lien will show on a credit report.

They do not check your credit report. They just need to make sure that you can financially support the person you are petitioning for.

Just what report they request and how is not clear to me but they WILL know about any IRS lien including how much it is. They will NOT know whether you have a payment arrangement or are keeping it though. The amount of information they have about any IRS lien is consistent with what they would see on a credit report. If there is no IRS lien, debts and credit rating are not an issue.

It would be very strange for the U.S. government to pull a consumer credit report when they have a database of IRS liens at their disposal...
