I-864 form for Canadian Spouse

The I-864 form is generating a number of questions we would like to get input from. Any help is greatly appreciated.

 

Here is the scenario:

  • My wife (US citizen) is petitioning for my immigration to the US from Canada.
  • We have 5 children who have dual citizenship.
  • My wife is not employed, though she does get child tax support in addition to my wage. 
  • My wife's father intends to be a joint sponsor and is also completing an affidavit of support on my behalf.

 

Our questions:

  • In Part 6, Question 7 should my wife include her child tax money as her "current annual income" since this income will not continue once we move to the US?
  • In Part 6, Question 20 should my wife include her child tax money plus my income  as "my current annual household income"?
  • Our children have dual citizenship. This being the case does this impact the way we complete any of the form (for instance household size)?

Wow 5 children! Bless you.

 

Do not include money that will not continue. Its not considered part of your current income.

 

All your dependents have to be listed on the 864 whether they are citizens or immigrants. 


Yes, often I seem like I consider myself the sheriff of VJ riding around a high horse, but I assure you I make plenty of mistakes and are grateful to those who correct me, and yes I know the TOS does not require you to actually read before replying. But VJ forums contents are generated by its users and if we as users want it to remain to be a source of credible, verifiable information, and advice -its up to us to keep it that way by taking care to read and reply carefully.

1] no she cannot.  It will not continue after relocating

2] no unless it will continue

3] the household size for your joint sponsor will not include your dual citizen children, only you, the beneficiary.
