Need help with Part 3 of 1-864 Form!!!

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Help! I have had my i-864 form sent back with comments regarding Part 3 and Part 5

I am the only joint sponsor. My dad is sponsoring my sister. Because of his retirement status and lack of income, I am a joint sponsor because of the income requirements.

-I answered "Yes" to Item 1 in part 3, which asks "I am sponsoring the principal immigrant names in Part 2"

-Items 2.b through 6.f are not applicable, as I am not sponsoring anybody other than the person listed in Part 2

-I answered "1" to Item 7 in part 3. It asks you to "enter the total number of immigrants you are sponsoring on this form from Items 1 through 6".

The government response in their comment letter was as follows:

"In Part 3, Information on the Immigrant(s) you are sponsoring, please correct the following:

Item 7: The total number of immigrants listed in item 7 must equal the number of immigrants listed in Part 3, items 1 through 6.f. In addition, you must also verify that the total number of immigrants listed in Item 7 matches the number you entered in Part 5 Item 1.

I believe answering 1 is correct for Item 7 of Part 3. There is no other logical answer. I am the only joint sponsor for the person in part 2. This adds up to a total of 1. In addition, I entered "1" into Item 1 of part 5, as instructed.

Please help! Am I not interpreting the form correctly? I am the only joint sponsor. I am only sponsoring one person, as indicated in Part 2. I answered "1" across the board and they are telling me I did it incorrectly. Does anybody have any ideas how I can resubmit this successfully?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

They also said that part 5 was done incorrectly. Here is their response:

In Part 5. Sponsor's household size, please correct the following:

"Item 2. You must enter (1) for yourself in the field.

"Item 8. The household size must equal the sum of items 1-7."

I entered "1" for Item 1 of part 5 to indicate that I am sponsoring 1 person. I also entered "1" for item 2 of part 5 to account for myself in the household total. These totaled to my answer of "2" in Item 8 of Part 5.

Their was an error in the electronic form on my browser, as it did not allow me to type "1" into Item 2, so I manually wrote it in after it was printed out. Aside from the fact that one question was written in, it still indicated that 1+1=2.

Does anyone experienced the same issue as am I? Am I missing something obvious on either of these two (seemingly simple) questions?

I'm stressed!!! Please help!!!

hi

did you use an updated version of the i864? because on item 2 on point 5, yourself is already there, there is a number 1

you are correct, did you check on the form when you printed it? maybe something wasn't filled out?

you can't fill it out online, you have to download it on your computer to fill it out

Hello and thank you!

So you think I did it right? They told me that I did it wrong twice already. So you think it is the computer error not my mistake? I had lost 4 months because of these mistake. Each time I sent my paperwork that they requested took them 2 months to review then get back to me with the same mistake.

I am so frustrated!

You've said that you have not listed anyone in Part 3, but you think that you need to put 1 in item 7, while you need to put 0.

It is only asking you how many immigrants you have listed in Part 3 in addition to the Principal Immigrant you have listed in Part 2.

>>Item 7: The total number of immigrants listed in item 7 must equal the number of immigrants listed in Part 3, items 1 through 6.f.

>>-I answered "1" to Item 7 in part 3. It asks you to "enter the total number of immigrants you are sponsoring on this form from Items 1 through 6".

>>Items 2.b through 6.f are not applicable, as I am not sponsoring anybody other than the person listed in Part 2
