(Un)employment question on I-864

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this is a silly question, but I want to make sure there are no errors in my application. On the I-864 it asks to give the date you've been unemployed since. I haven't been working the past few years (but also not necessarily seeking out employment, which I read was a determining factor in being considered "unemployed") and prior to that I was a student. Does being a student also count as unemployed? If so, should I go back all the way to the beginning of my academic career when I had a couple part-time jobs? Thanks in advance

Unemployed means not employed, whether you are seeking employment or not. Being employed part time is still employment. Being a student doesn't mean you weren't unemployed but most people choose to write full time student.
