Hey VJers,

First off I am a full time mom and wife so I'm currently unemployed and no current individual income. But prior to my unemployment I was working part time for the last three years. My husband and I filed our taxes jointly.

Anyway, I am sponsoring my parents and my husband will be the co-sponsor which he needs to fill out I-864A right?

I am starting to fill out I-864 but I am confused what to answer on the annual income questions.

So on PART 6, item 5, since I have no current individual income I should put "$0". And on PART 6, item 6a to 6c will be my husband and his income. Am I right?

The PART 6, item 13s asking about my total adjusted income on IRS. Since we were filing our taxes jointly can I

separate my income from my hubby and write it down? I so confused with that.

Please enlighten me. Thanks

Correct, you'll be the sponsor filing an I-864 and your husband will be categorized as a household member of the sponsor filing an I-864a. (to combine incomes)

If you're unemployed then, yes, current income would be listed as $0. You'll list your hubby's income in the first box askingf or household member's income and in the last box asking for current annual household income you'll enter your husband's figures in there as well.

My parents filed an I-864/I-864a as they file taxes jointly as well. They split the income shown on their tax return in half and yesterday towards the end of our interview I was kinda nervous about it, but the CO was just thumbing through their paperwork and asked me "so this TLH filing the I-864 is your father? And PSH filing the I-864a is your mom?" and after I said yes he just typed some stuff in the computer and said my husband's visa was approved, haha.

Please enlighten me. Thanks

Hi.. we have the same situation here. Just want you to know that I got checklist on the part 6 13.a, because I put my separate income. ( I am working partime before so it confused me.) "The income you enter must match the total (gross) income reported on your most recent Federal income tax return. If you filed Form1040EZ use the adjusted gross income instead".

We filed form 1040 last year and 1040A for the year 2012 & 2011. My hubby's pension is his only taxable income

( VA and SSDI are not taxable) so I can tell which is mine and his income. But given all of the above situation I should put our total adjusted income?

Sorry to hear about your checklist. Frustrating isn't it?

Yes., your adjusted gross income. Yeah... very frustrating! I found out more than 60 days. So review all your papers first. Goodluck!

So confused with I-864, I got a letter after 2 moths of waiting that My I-864EZ was not filled right, and I am under 125%of poverty level, I think they misread my tax return s I'm not sure but they sacked for my W2, and suggested to get a joint sponsor, Now it got more confusing, I'm a US citizen now, I filled for my parents both of them on separate visa petitions , in Part 3 of I-864 do I mark 2, because I filled for my Mom and my Dad and add as a family member, or not because they on separate visa petitions, now I'm filling I-864 and my husband I-864 A because we filled taxes jointly? and at my current individual income do I put the last amount of total income I earned for the year 2014? and for my spouse as well and total 'it or to put the adjustable income from 2013 tax return? so confused do they need the adjusted gross income or taxable income? When I have a joint sponsor how dose this work?

Hi.. I don't know what to answer on your question about part 3. I only petition my mom. The i-864 is for the petitioner (thats you!) and the I-864A is for your sponsor (could be your husband) if your income is enough. You just have to match your federal income tax. If you get the checklist, it has a sentence on how to answer the question.

We need to file I-864 for each of them as it states in the instruction. And also in Part 3,#7 is says, total number of immigrant you are sponsoring on this affidavit which is 1 for each affidavit. That's how I understand it..
