Hi guys,

I seem to have to run into a problem..on the I-864, where it asks if you have any dependent children, I have a daughter but she was born overseas and is with my wife (but through CRBA, she has her US Passport, she was born this year). I don't file taxes, my parents claim me. I put on the I-864 that I do claim her, but again I don't file taxes. She has never been in the US yet. Only thing that is now paranoying me on completing AOS package. I don't know whether to write her as a dependent, because she has never been claimed on a tax return yet.

Do you guys think this will cause any issues?

Any child under 18 is your dependent no matter where they live and no matter how you file taxes or not. For AOS your household size is 3 ( you wife and child )

This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.
