RFE for I-864, need help

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife and I submitted her paperwork for the I-485 last November and only in April did we receive an RFE. We thought we had submitted all of the necessary paperwork, but the RFE said:


"Form I-864, Affidavit of Support, was submitted; however, it was not from from the petitioner/sponsor. Submit a completed and signed I-864, for the petitioner/sponsor listed on Form I-130 or Form I-129F. Even if a joint sponsor will be used, the petitioner/sponsor must submit form I-864."


I checked our copies and I don't see an I-864 form with my information. The only copy is for an I-864 from my father as a joint sponsor. So my question is, should I resubmit with I-864 forms for myself and my father? Should my form I-864 say, "I am the petitioner" and my father's say, "I am the only joint sponsor?"


Thank you so much for all of the resources. This process has been very daunting and worrisome to say the least...

The petitioner must be a sponsor and provide an I-864 even if they need a joint sponsor. The I-864 is a legal contract, and the petitioner must be "on the hook"/responsible to ensure the intending immigrant does not become a public charge.
