Bringing 2 Step-children to US, i-864 / i-864EZ questions

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am US citizen, wife now a 10yr Permanent Resident with two boys in Colombia. I've already filed two I-130 for them, paid the $88 filing fee for the pair, and next need file my affidavit(s) of support. It is NOT clear which form to file: I-864EZ or I-864, nor if I need specify one boy as the "Primary Applicant".

I must use the EZ form if "the sponsored immigrant is the only person immigrating on the underlying visa petition". This is unclear. There are two separate I-130's, but each one required my listing other family members (being petitioned under separate I-130) plus they have clearly connected the two cases in one fee. On the other hand, there are indeed two separate I-130 petitions.

The I-864 form permits listing multiple Immigrants. However, the instructions for listing the immigrants in Parts 2 and 3 is very confusing and I'm not sure if it applies. The names are listed as "Principal Immigrant", then "Family Member 1", "Family Member 2", etc. However, Part 3 box 2 states "Do not include any relative listed on a separate visa petition"?! So does that mean I can't use the I-864 for two or more kids?

If you file two i130 you have to Send two pairs of i864. The aos is enough for Both but for Send the papers you have to Send two sets. In My understand you have to file i864 and if your Wife will be a coesponsor you have to file a signed i864a from your wife
