I 864A question

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

My parents file jointly and only make one income together from their small business + my dad´s Social Security retirement income. Most of the money is coming from my dad´s Social Security.

I have 2 questions:

1) I know that the joint sponsor will fill out the I 864. But, because my parents file their taxes jointly, does one of them have to fill out the I 864 and the other the I 864 A? Or can just one fill out the I 864 and no one fill out the I 864A?

2) Can my mom be my joint sponsor, even if most of the income is from my dad´s social security?

Thank you!

If most of the income comes from the dad, then why not have the dad fill out the I-864 and the mom fill out an I-864A to go with his I-864? That way their incomes will be combined on his I-864 to act as joint sponsorship.

Thank you, I will use my dad as the joint sponsor (I 864). One more question :)

Since my parents file jointly and make the same amount of income (my mom makes no additional income), is she required to fill out the I 864 A?

Thanks in advance!
