Hello Friends hola amigos. I am new to visa Journey today, and not sure how to use the site. I found this post about i-864. I have a question  I was the US petitioner and I filed the i 130 for my fiancé. We got married. Now we need to do the AOS. I am confused because the USCIS website is not clear on directions. Here is my situation. I don't meet 125% for the poverty guideline requirements. My father is going to sponsor my husband with me. I made my I-864, but does my father need to make the i-864 OR i864A. My father and I don't live at the same address, but I was listed as a dependent of his latest tax return. Does that mean we are household members or no? My father fills out i864 or I864A?

 

Please help. I would greatly appreciate it

blessings

glennw84 thank you so very much for answering. I appreciate this. Did you have the same situation I did? Also please anyone else I would appreciate your input. 

Glenn is right :) he's not your current household member so no i-864a is needed for you guys. Good luck filing :)

Yes I was in the same situation. I did not have any trouble. I only forgot to provide proof of US citizenship of the joint sponsor so I got an RFE for that. Other than that everything went without a hitch. So far. Good luck to you

I-864 for both of you.  However your father has to count you on his household size until he does taxes and doesn't count you as a dependent.

He won't count me as a dependent for 2016, but im stuck for now because he did for 2015.  I will count myself in his household size then. Also i must put in 1 in his box for dependent too. 

I am pretty sure that you don't have to count him in your household size, You have to look at the current situation at the time of filing. The tax return is only to prove his income. Don't overthink it too much. USCIS is not the IRS, they only want prove that he is a US citizen, paid taxes/has a decent income, lives at another address and that he takes responsibility to sponsor the immigrant. 

 

Only write what your current situation is in household size and income.
