Help with I-864

Hello, my wife and I's I-130 has been accepted and it's now time for me to fill out the I-864 and I have a few questions.

I live in South Korea with my wife and are Direct Consular Filing.

I have not been making any money and have never filed taxes(living off parents) so my Dad will be a joint sponsor.

1st - In part 5 I put a "1" in #1 a check in #2. and then do I put a "1" in #5 for my father? I am confused because it says he is filing an I-864a but from what I've read else where I thought he should also be filing a I-864 just like me.

2nd - Part 6 - Because I have been lucky enough to live here and not have to work this part is easy to fill out. Should I add a note saying my situation and why have not made any money or filed taxes?

3rd - Part 6 - My dad is a real estate investor and so his tax rebate, W2, makes it look like he doesnt make as much money as he truly does. It is still above 125% of the poverty line. Do you think I should add another note expanding on this?

4th - Wifes family is going to give us around $60,000 as a wedding gift and to help us in life. We will get it when we are leaving to USA so do not have it now. Should I also make a note of this for them?

5th - In part 1 my dad checks 1.d "I am the only joint sponsor" correct?

6th - If my dad is supposed to fill out I-864 then what are I-864a and I-864ez meant for?

Thank you for your help.

1. You're dad isn't dependent on you, so I wouldn't enter that in #5. The I-864a is for combining incomes when you both live in the same house. (Pulled from another site..."The Form I-864A is used in combination with the sponsor’s Form I-864, when a sponsor is using the income or assets of household members in order to meet the minimum income requirements as required by U.S. immigration law.")

2. You're instructed to include a written statement anyway when you haven't filed tax returns as to why not.

3. If it makes you feel better then sure, but so long as it shows his income being above the poverty line for the household size then it won't make a difference really.

4. Not sure about that, honestly.

5. Yes, you're the main sponsor and he's your joint sponsor.

Awesome thank you very much for your help.

So for part 5 it will look like this

1. Enter the number you entered on line 7 part three - 1

2. Yourself - 1

3 ~ 7 - 0

8. Add together line 1-7.. - 2

It will look like that on my I-864 and my Father's I-864?

If your dad is married he'll basically fill it out just like you did, only he checks the box where it asks if he's married. (under the section where it says 'persons NOT sponsored')
