I-864A question

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I would like to share about my case:


My husband is a dual citizen and he went back here in the PH just to study. Now, he's in his last semester, that's why we decided to file last December via DCF. His parents will be our joint sponsors and also a household member. But, the status of their employment will change on the 22nd. His mom will become self employed, while his dad will become unemployed, but he has his pension and their income still meets the 125% requirement.


On the I-864A page 2, part 3, we put their current job since it's not yet 22nd, plus the current individual annual income we put is the most recent (2016 income) because there's no current income in the new job. We are just going to attached the contract agreement + letter of explanation of change of employment status for my interview on the 27th, 5 days after the new job takes effect. do you think that would be alright? 



Help please?

Is it not an option to wait until the 22nd?

I would recommend just waiting till after 22nd. It will save you time in the long run. 

Since you may have to do status change.

If not an option, then yes that seems good. If you can get a signed paper from employer stating what would usually need to be stated if in a normal position (salary, work hours etc) even if it is "to be," would be a good thing.

one parent will file the i864 as joint sponsor and the other will file the i864A as his or her household member. they must fill it out because they have to sign it and they should fill it out with the new information, because by the time you have your interview, the new job will be in effect


why did you wait until the last minute, because it has to be original and signed by them, so how will the forms get in time tor them to sign them and then mail them back to you?

Thank you so much for your replies! :)


We're just going to put the income that is based on the contract (of self employment) on the i864a p.2 and i864 p.5,  since it is already signed by both parties and on the time of my interview, the new job takes effect. that's why by that time their current income is the income that was stated in the contract. :D



They'll deliver the documents tomorrow via FedEx, and after 3 days the documents would be here :)
