I-864 and I-864A?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We got the rfe in hard copy, actually it's a request for "initital evidence". It has 2 parts:

part 1: asking for my hubby's w2, 1099...etc. This is kinda confusing as I sent his tax transcript for 3 years including 2014, look like they also want other paperwork (new to me, i thought transcript would suffice).

part 2: stating that we do not meet the poverty guidelines. My hubby is currently looking for job, and I'm working as h1b visa, and I sponsor myself but I guess as my visa expires 2016 it won't help. So we will ask for help from my father in law.

My question is, I already submitted I-864 (with hubby as the petitioner and combined with my h1b income), now we have to include I-864 with father in law income on a separate form right? We're living in the same house with my parent in law since march 2015. Also, does my mother in law have to file I-864A as she's filing tax jointly with my father in law? (my father in law makes enough money so he's qualified to sponsor us, we don't need mother-in-law income to help). Am I on the right track? I'm so confused :(

I greatly appreciate any input!

If he files jointly with spouse, she needs to sign i864a to let him use family fund to cover you, even she makes nothing, it is more of a consent. This matter has been mentioned many times. Good luck.
