I-864 Questions - Feeling Stupid Here

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Country: Canada

I have asked some questions about I-864 before but am really starting from scratch here so please don't get frustrated with me.

My situation again is this: I (Canadian) and my wife (American but living in Canada as a permanent resident) have applied for IR-1 for myself.

In our circumstances we have my income in Canada to point at but my wife does not work.

1. We have sufficient assets to satisfy the I-864 requirements but will assets only be an issue? I have a substantial income currently but will obviously have to give it up when I leave Canada.

In filling out these forms we have some assets (hers) in the US but not enough to cover the five years for using assets only (which I assume we will have to do because my income cannot count can it?)

Anyway, I will have to fill out an I-864a to complement her I-864 but there is nowhere on the I-864a to list my assets. It is simply a contract.

2. So as stupid as it sounds (my question) do I combine my income and assets with hers on her I-864?

3. Also when listing income on her I-864 does she include income from Canada (she had a little) and do we list my income from Canada?

If there are some Can/Am couples who can help me it would be greatly appreciated.

I am very confused and don't want to be delayed as they ask for a co-sponsor. I have enough assets but I am wondering if I wiser to just use a co-sponsor to begin with.

Thanks folks.

You are all so good here.

BC_Ed,

Read the I-864, and the I-864A, and answer the questions as asked. Note that the household financial resources get reported on I-864.

Also, there is a very good I-864 FAQ on the USCIS web site.

Hang in there :)
