K2 affidavit of support

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Happy Hump day!

I am filing AOS for my wife and step daughter. On the guide here it says "K-2's don't require their own separate I-864 with supporting documents (tax returns, etc). Make sure they are listed in section 9 of the K-1's I-864, and provide a photocopy of the K-1's I-864 with the K2's paperwork. You don't need to include copies of the supporting documents with the K-2's paperwork."

I can't find that section 9 anywhere. Should I still include supporting documents for the K2's I-864?

Thanks in advance

hi, Bambastic,

we are in the same process, filing AOS for me and my daughter. i am going to make two plastic folders, one for me (K1) and another for my child (K2).

in my childs folder i am putting: i 485, i 864 (copy of K1's ) without W2 and Tax return, passport copy, visa copy, i 94, birth certificate with translate, vaccinations copy and photos. i will put both plastic folders in one mailing folder+ fee check+ cover letter

I hope it will work right :)

Make sure the child (K2) is listed in the immigrant parent's (K1) I-864 in Part 3.

Completed: K1/K2 (271 days) - AOS/EAD/AP (134 days) - ROC (279 days)

That part of the guide is probably outdated and may have been correct at the time it was written, possibly years ago.

You do not need a separate I-864. You need to check the box for #2 in Part 3 and list the K-2 as Family Member 1.

I am bumping this because the advice is legitimate only if the K2 is to follow within 6 months of the principal immigrant (page 2, part 3, question 2 on I-864).   In our case, my wife's 8 year-old daughter arrived 9 months after her mother with her K2.  The only option I see based on the old form is to fill out a separate I-864 for my wife's daughter as a "principal immigrant".  She has no A number and I do not see anywhere to link her to her mother on this form.  Fortunately on the new I-864 there is now a question #3 on part 3 if the K2 visa holder arrives greater than 6 months.  This was an oversight that was thankfully corrected.


As an aside I noticed that there is a new I-864 on the USCIS website since we last submitted.  The I-864 that we downloaded in October 2017 expired 7/31/17.  Fortunately the new one expires in the future lol
