Necessary to Submit Separate I-485 and I-864 Forms for Stepdaughter of Sponsored Fiancée?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of appllying for an AOS for my wife and her 11-year-old daughter (my stepdaughter).

They entered the US at the same time, my wife on a K1 visa and her daughter on a K2. My wife and I married within the 90-day-period. Both she and my stepdaughter have been residing with me in the US since their entry into the country. Because of my wife's K1 visa status, we are foregoing the I-130 and going straight to the I-485 in pursuit of the green card.

I am now preparing an I-864 for my wife, while she is completing the I-485. My question is, do we need to complete a separate I-485 and I-864 for her daughter or can she "piggyback" on her mother's application?

Thanks for your help.

Someone that enters with a K-1 always goes straight to filing for AOS, and do not require an I-130.

Anyway, the K-2 must also file for AOS and need their own I-485. See the special instructions about fees for children based on age > https://www.uscis.gov/i-485

The child will be listed on the I-864 for the K-1 parent where it asks in Part 3. Provide a copy of that I-864 with the child's I-485.
