Filling Out I-864 For My Parents. Do I have to file 2 separate forms?

Hi everyone,

I'm not new to immigration procedures, but this IR5 process got me little confused. I'm petitioning my both parents. I-130 was approved few months ago then it got transferred to NVC, I have paid all the fees and submitted their online applications. The only thing that's left is to send AOS & IV package. Now here's the question: on I-864... Do I have to file 2 separate forms or just fill out 1? Already filled out 1 application, but some questions are super confusing and comes into conflict.

Let's say Part 3, Q2 - I am sponsoring the following family members immigrating at the same time or within 6 months of the principal immigrant named in Part 2.Do not include any relatives listed on a separate visa petition.

I don't get it, my parents are immigrating together, but obviously their I-130's were filed separately, now do I have to list for instance my dad in Part 3 or fill out separate I-864?

Any help is extremely appreciated.

I can not link a thread from another forum.

But, if you google for "i 864 for parents", I see many links. One of them has excellent screen shots of the appl to guide you. It is fairly recent one in 2015.

Thanks akpman for bringing it up. So I googled I 864 for parents. Trooper, you have to fill out one AOS form for your mom and another for your dad. I am also in the same boat as you are. I am just waiting for some documents from my parents then I will submit my AOS package. But, for the mean time, I have been searching how to answer the form because I am also confused about some questions. Part 3, put a check on item # 1, leave #2 blank. That's what I have read from a thread I searched in google as mentioned by akpman.
