I'm just wondering if there's any reason NOT to use the I-864A if I qualify? I am the sponsor, I have only one income and it meets the guidelines. It just seems that most people say they file the I-864 and I want to make sure they don't know something that I'm missing. Is there any benefit to the I-864?

Thanks in advance, everyone here has been so helpful. :)

the i864A isn't for the petitioner. In case the petitioner needs a co-sponsor, the household member will sign the i864A, it's a contract between the petitioner who files the i864 and the household member who files the i864A.

That's what I get for trying to think before coffee. I meant the I-864EZ. I guess I can't edit my original. Oops.

I wanted to know if there's a benefit to using the I-864 vs. I-864EZ. :wacko:

If you meet the criteria for the I-864EZ, I'd suggest using that as it's a shorter form to fill out (so less chance of mistakes). My husband qualified for the I-864EZ so we used that instead of the longer I-864.

My wife could easily have used the I-864EZ, but that required us to fill out the form by hand (the I-864 form can be typed up on a computer before printing). So to keep ourselves organized we ended up completing the I-864.

Edit to add: By the way, if you qualify for the I-864EZ, then the I-864 is really easy complete as well, as most parts would simply be empty.
