Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Canada

my new wife and I are really stuck on a few of the I-864 questions and I cannot seem to find the answers anywhere! Hopefully some more experienced members could please help us out!

We filed for a K1 visa and were married 3 weeks from my visa approval. so the question here is on Part 5 Sponsors Household Size.

We are both living at her family's house currently. I understand that we need to add up all the people. but the confusing part is getting to Part 5 Question 3. Its asking to add one person if you are currently married. We are married but she has already added myself to Part 5 question 1. Isnt that like doubling yourself? Do I add myself to the married section even though I have already been counted?

The next Question is relating to the financial section in Part 6

She is and has been a student for the last 3 years, she took some part time jobs but through the year has been small amounts made..she tells me she was not required to file any tax documentation because she made less than some ammount (im not sure what that is) So How do we do this section?? Her father is going to add his income to this section so we will be well above poverty line including his. I also have transferred all my savings into a joint bank account we set up so I have no other money to add to my section for assets (it was a good deal of money and substantially increased our now joint bank account here) will this be a positive or negative for us?

Much thanks for anyone taking the time to read and comment on this!

It states in all caps and underlined not to count anyone twice. It also says that Part 5 #1 is the only line for tallying up the persons being sponsored in that affidavit. For #2 and beyond it states, 'Persons NOT sponsored in this affidavit:' You are the person being sponsored and are counted on line #1. You are not counted again under spouse/persons not being sponsored.

Also, everyone you live with is not necessarily in your household count.

How to count household size >

Your household size includes yourself and the following individuals, no matter where they live: any spouse, any dependent children under the age of 21, any other dependents listed on your most recent Federal income tax return, all persons being sponsored in this affidavit of support, and any immigrants previously sponsored with a Form I-864 or Form I-864 EZ

If her father will supply an I-864A, then he is counted in Part 5 #7. So, if your wife has no dependents and has never supplied an I-864 for someone before, then the household count will be 3> her, you and her father. And yes, you can add your assets to her I-864. They are joint assets anyway. Just supply proof of them with a bank statement showing ownership and amount.

They both need to supply their most recent tax transcript. If she did not file any of the last 3 years, then she must include a statement as to why she was not legally required to file those years. Proof of current income can be a letter from employer and/or recent pay stubs. If the father files taxes jointly with a spouse, then he should also provide a copy of his most recent W-2 to go along with his tax transcript to show his individual income amount from the tax return. He will also need to supply proof of his relationship to you and that you share the same residence
