i-864 Questions

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm preparing the paperwork to petition my mother once I get my citizenship by Sept 2015.

I have some questions regarding i-864 Affidavit of Support.

  1. I am currently not employed (took a break for having a baby) but have a home based business. I applied for a position with my previous employer and have a pending job offer (still waiting to hear back from them). Do I put both (if I get the job) in Part 6? I notice the form only allows me to select either Employed or Self-Employed.
  2. Individually, I'm currently not earning enough past the poverty guidelines. Does my husband need to file as a joint sponsor (separate i-864) or just as a household member (i-864a)?
  3. In Part 6, Item 19, do I put household income? We filed Jointly as Married.

Thank you very much, everyone!

1. It is based on your current (i.e. at the time you fill out the form) situation. So you are either working or you are not at that moment.

2. He should be your household member and fill out I-864A.

3. You put whatever number it says on the "total income" line on your tax returns for those years, no matter how you filed.
