What do we need to file an I-130 for my daughter/his step daughter?

Hi!

We'll be filing for the I-130 as soon as possible, or - my husband will file one for me, and one for my daughter. It's not entirely clear to me what we need to do for my daughter? She's 4.

Also, he's living with me in Sweden, how do we do it with the affidavit? Since he doesn't have a job in the States?

Thank you! :)

Your husband will file two I-130; one for you and one for your daughter (I am assuming she is NOT his bio daughter). Two petitions, two bio sheets, two fees, but can send everything in one envelope.

Regarding the affadavit of support, your husband has three options:

- leave first and get a job in the USA, so he has paystubs to give you in time for interview.

- Sponsor on assets; will need at least 3 times as much as income, so around $75'000.

- Get a co=-sponsor (that is what most people do); a US based USC or greencard holder who will stand guarantoor for you.

Thank you! (I'll be moving to Arkansas too!!)

Do we need to include a passport photo of my daughter too?

You will also need to put a birth certificate in with the childs package or you'll get an RFE like I did......see sec. 8 I think it is in the instructions on how to file for a Step Child.....
