I864 son filing for parents, needs joint sponsor

3 posts in this topic

Hello. Quick question. Son is filing for both mom and dad, but son doesn't make enough $$ to sponsor them on I-864, so he will use his USC uncle (dad's fleshly brother).  Uncles don't qualify as household members even though son lives with his uncle, so I-864a can't be used in this case.  So question is:  Will son have to fill out I-864 for himself and then have uncle fill out another I-864 as the joint sponsor?  If so, this step will have to be done for both dad AND mom (since son is petitioning for both parents).   Input is appreciated. Thanks!

Yes, they both will have to fill out the I-864. The son will always be the PRIMARY sponsor since he is the petitioner.

Ok, thanks.  So this means that actually 4 (four) I-864's must be filled out.

For dad:  I-864 by son (petitioner) andI-864 by uncle (joint sponsor) 

For mom: I-864 by son (petitioner) and I-864 by uncle (joint sponsor)
