Part 3, question 2 has me confused.  I have my wife and two step-kids.  Each has their own I-130.  It asks me to count any relatives coming with my wife within 6 months.  Both kids will come at the same time.  It also says not to count relatives with their own petitions.  Do I do separate I-864s for each of them or do I include the kids in my wife's petition and use copies with each of the other petitions?

Ohh I know this one!   Just helped a friend two weeks ago. Separate I-864 for each petition.   The joys of CR-1   

 

Think of it this way - Each has their own I-864, DS-260 and . . . I-864.

It is the household size that scares me.  If I just include myself and my wife, my self and my step-daughter and then myself and my step son they will see a household of either only 2 or 6 depending on how they look at it.

household size

You just list the household size as 4 total , yourself  the immigrant and then the two others below.   I forget what page that table is on.  I am out and about right now and will run by my office later tonight and get the copy of the ones I helped with two weeks ago.  We put a note at the end about all of them immigrating together. with their names listed and case numbers.

 

You are DCF right?   The CO will understand what is going on.

This  is why the quote in my signature refers to understanding the big picture.  Literally, the bigger picture of the section quoted above is about who you are sponsoring with THIS affidavit of support  further down, there is a spot for "other dependents" where your step children will be counted in the household size.  Don't a 1 for spouse in that section on your spouse's affidavit but do count both children.  On each child's petition you DO count your spouse and only ONE of the children is "other".  The household size will be correct and you will have done it properly.

 

PS: Other cases where petitions are not needed for each person, are the places would enter a number in 2. above.  Not for IR or CR cases.
