i-864 co-sponsor bankruptcy. Will this affect ROC?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I currently have my 2 year green card (CPR) which is via AOS from K-1.

 

My wife used a family member as a co-sponsor with form I-864 as she was a student at the time. However, that family member may soon file for bankruptcy.

 

I was wondering:

 

Would this affect my ROC in any way?

Now my wife will be earning enough to sponsor me on her own can we 'remove' the family member's I-864?

 

Thanks

Oh is that right? Did they require a co-sponsor who wasn't bankrupt for I-751?

 

I would like to think as my wife is the primary sponsor she is the only one that matters, was looking for some clarification

 

Thanks

your sponsor submitted the sponsorship already that's why you have your conditional green card and that is tied up to all of your application in the future which is your ROC and citizenship.

USCIS don't require sponsor income for ROC.

No and No

 

As an aside bankruptcy will not impact the I 864 anyway,

Nope.

ROC doesn't ask for any financial proof from the joint-sponsors.
