Hi Guys,

I am doing a concurrent filing for my parents. I-130, I-485, I-864, I-131, I-765 separate petitions for my MOM and DAD. I am a housewife and unemployed. Me and my husband have always filed taxes jointly. My questions are as follows:

1. Would my husband be the joint sponsor?

2. how many I-864 forms do I need to submit for my Mom and Dad (in each)?

3. Do I need to fill I-864 and my husband needs to fill I-864A, for each parent?

4. In I-864 for my Dad, Part 1. I have selected 1.a. Is this correct?

5. In I-864 for my Dad, Part 2. I have put Dad's name as Principal Immigrant. So in Part 3. is it correct to check Yes ?

Hi Guys,

I am doing a concurrent filing for my parents. I-130, I-485, I-864, I-131, I-765 separate petitions for my MOM and DAD. I am a housewife and unemployed. Me and my husband have always filed taxes jointly. My questions are as follows:

1. Would my husband be the joint sponsor? Yes and no. He is a household member combining his income with yours. A joint sponsor files a separate I-864.

2. how many I-864 forms do I need to submit for my Mom and Dad (in each)? One for each parent.

3. Do I need to fill I-864 and my husband needs to fill I-864A, for each parent? Yes, you fill out one I-864 for each, your husband fills out one I-864A for each.

4. In I-864 for my Dad, Part 1. I have selected 1.a. Is this correct? Yes, same for mom.

5. In I-864 for my Dad, Part 2. I have put Dad's name as Principal Immigrant. So in Part 3. is it correct to check Yes ? Yes, and same for mom.

Also in Part 3, do not check no. 2 and do not fill out the other parent's info where it says Family member 1, No 7 should be "1" for each parent. In part 5, you only include one parent, not both. Therefore, if it's just you and your husband, plus one parent, your household size would be 3 for each parent's I-864. However, you still need to make the poverty level for a family of 4.

So for my Mom's Affidavit of Support, I will be giving the following documents:

1. I-864 by myself and Last 3 years Tax transcripts (taxes filed jointly with spouse)

2. I-864A by my spouse and Last 3 years Tax Transcripts (taxes filed jointly with spouse)

Please confirm?

Yes. You don't need the taxes twice because you file jointly, you do however need them twice because you need one for each parent.

For Mom: Your I-864, husband's I-864A, last 3 years tax transcripts, employment letter or most recent paystubs

For Dad: The same as mom.

So you need 6 tax transcripts in total, 2 for each year, and two employment letters or paystubs. Since each parent is a different case they each need their own forms and supporting docs.

Thanx for the above response.

Also, for each parent, I am making a check of $420 for I-130 and another check of $1070 for I-485. Apart from this do I need to make a separate payment for I-864 & I-864A ?

If yes, how much and when do I make the payment? Should i send a check along with the entire packet i.e with the above mentioned 2 checks?

If you are sending everything together, I'm pretty sure you can write one check for everything. Or you can write one check for the fees of each parent, so the $420 and the $1070 combined.

You don't pay an extra fee for the I-864 when you submit it with the AOS package, you also don't pay for the I-765 or the I-131, these are all free as part of the AOS application, not really free, but included in the $1070.

You should send both cases in the same envelope so they are processed together, just be sure to clip each parent's case separately.

The I-485 is to adjust status for a person who is currently in the US. Your mom is applying for an immigrant visa abroad so this wouldn't apply to her. She has to do the NVC process.

what is I-485 for? I did not pay $1070 for my mom.
