I have been searching for similar situation as my husband and I have but haven't found anything yet.

We are in a process of filling for AOS from F-1 visa. One of the questions in I-864 confused me.

My husband has 2 minor kids from his previous relationship. Kid's mother and he were never married. He pays child support for him and he is not a custodial parent.

the question is should I count those 2 kids in out family size if they never live with us and he never in his life claimed them on tax return.

From what I've read on this forum is than a lot of people have said that if a family member doesn't live with you and you never claimed him/her on your tax return, you should not mention him/her in the I-864 form.

Is this correct?

Have anyone had a such experience?

I would appreciate any help from you guys.

No need to mention any other children.
Its important for you to know their names, ages etc in case you are asked but its not a matter for the I-864 form.
