i-864/i-864A/Current Individual Income

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


my wife and I are trying to figure out the papers for our i-864.

She recently started a new job and was hired part time. For the past 6 weeks though

they have been giving her 48 hours per week and she has been working more than the 16 hours per week

they hired her for.

How do I go about calculating her Current Individual Income for the year?

Also we know she does not make enough to sponsor me. Therefore her mother is acting as our

co-sponsor and she will be filling out her won i-864. Her and her husband always filed taxes jointly, so he will

be filling out an i-864 A, correct? Both of them are retired and receive rent from several properties.

What would their annual income be? Social Security and Pension? Also how do we go about the rental

income? Is it considered annual income and will be added to the Social Security and Pension?

And how do we seperate the rental income for the i-864 and i-864A? Should I divide it 50/50?

Or just put it as her income on the i-864 and write a seperate note, that we counted it as her income since

they filed jointly?

You would need to use your best guess for annual income, since you do not have stable weekly hours. Or you can get a letter from the employer that states how many hours she is supposed to work, but can get overtime. Use the part time hours only to add up the annual income, since you are using a joint sponsor it won't matter if the amount is not enough.

You would add up all their incomes and list the total as their current household income. How is the rental income split between them? Is it joint? How do they list it on their taxes? If joint, I would list each of their pension/SSA incomes plus half the rental income for their individual incomes, then those will combined together for the annual household income. Or, list it as it done for their taxes, if not split evenly. However it is split between them, all of their incomes will come together on the joint sponsor's I-864 in Part 6 #10.

Thank you very much for your help. That's how I was going to do it with the rentals and income, I just wanted to make sure it was ok like that. It is joint on the taxes, so I will just split it even, so it combines for the annual household income.

The job situation just got easier. She literally just got offered full time at 48 hrs a week 5 minutes ago lol.
