Hey All,

I have read and re-read so many different and conflicting answers so i am just going to ask these few questions myself and see what I get before I send these off and get a check list. So thanks in advance for any answers that you feel could set me straight and assure me I am sending in the correct paperwork.

1. For the joint sponsor's (mom) I-864 form, if she filed jointly and with a 1040, first...do I use the entire joint income which is both her's and her husband's? and then submit her

W-2's? and then this would mean I can't use the transcripts, right because it doesn't divide the income?

2. And so...if she makes over and above the amount needed to sponsor my husband, do we still need to get her husband to sign the I-864A?

3. When submitting the AOS package do I need to send my (petitioner) original birth cert plus copy? Original Marriage certificate plus copy? Original divorce decree plus copy? Or are they asking for these forms from the beneficiary in the IV package? And do we need to send them in twice if so, once in the AOS package and once in the IV package? And the all need to be originals? Do we get these back at the end of the process? Does the joint sponsor need to send these in the packet these as well?

I am sure there are more questions but this is what is on top of me at the moment. Would love to know correctly without going to a lawyer, but maybe they will prevent a check list and longer processing time?

  1. If you only want to include your mom’s income then submit it with that income. Send 1040 Return and copy of W2 (mom) to prove her income.

    If you want to include joint income then Part 6:5 Mom Income, 6:6A-C Spouse Income. Current annual Household income will be the total joint income (1040-Line#22). Then her husband needs to complete I-864A.

  2. No. With W2 you can prove the income
  3. AOS package only needs petitioner’s copy of US Passport or Naturalization certificate. For Civil documents you need to send Beneficiaries Original Birth Certificate, Marriage Certificate, Police Clearance Certificates, and Original Divorce Decree. You only need to send it once. Now it takes 60 days to review the documents so they prefer to send everything at one shot. http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/immigrate/immigrant-process/documents/submit/documents-to-submit-to-nvc.html

Wow, great! Thanks for the speedy response!!

And I don't need to send MY original divorce decree, right? Just his (beneficiaries). And in answer to question #3 you said I DO need these documents sent in the AOS package, and not just the IV package?

And are we really suppose to send the AOS and the IV package together?

I did send both together… I have helped few with CR-1 petitions and did the same… No issues… Recently spoke to NVC and the rep asked if I had send both together.. I said yes. and he said that’s great.. they prefer that..
